The Lore of the Loonie

The Lore of the Loonie continues…

I just read something really cool!

Loonies have been stashed in the sand on the beach at the volleyball court, in the rowing waters at the Lagoa, and even under the 18th hole green at the Olympic golf course.

But why?

Paul Bowes, one of the coaches of the men’s wheelchair basketball team, said it has become a Canadian tradition.

“It’s just part of Canadiana in my opinion,” he told CBC News. “I just think the lore of the looney has been kept alive by, you know, teams that want to get creative. It’s a fun thing to do.”

It’s a creative way to bring Good Luck!

How cool?

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.
