Was it a dream? 

Well…I am HOME!

My time in China went far too quickly as I knew it would. I absolutely love it there. There are not too many people who understand my feeling about this. But this country really took hold of my heart while we lived there. The land, the culture, the people… yes, the people. There is no place that fills that void I feel like China.

always in my heart

Well perhaps if David & I relocated to Vancouver it would help. I have never been there except for my day layover on this trip. It is definitely on our “must see bucket list” After James was there and described it, and so much Chinese influence…maybe that would help.

I am so thankful to have had the priviledge to go back,especially in my year…the year of the goat!!!! I never could have imagined.


To do this trip to China with my dear sister in law, to see where my niece is teaching, to see Chinese friends again, to see some of the “famous” landmarks, to walk in the quiet places that I love …yes I am thankful, it was a dream. Time will tell if it will only create a greater longing to visit again or was it enough…

Moon in China

BUT for now it’s time to think about exploring a different part of this wonderful world! Hmm…where to next? ( Probably the Cuba Wedding Trip in April) and then…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
