For the past two weeks…

For the past two weeks we watched along with the rest of the world, the BEST of the BEST, the world’s greatest athletes compete in Rio. Nova Scotia had some wonderful athletes on the Canadian team. With great pride we congratulate them on their achievements.

Tonight, one last event that brings the world just a little bit closer together, It is the closing of the 2016 Olympics in Rio. And in Rio Carnaval style…a HUGE party and celebration! It was spectacular.

And to be honest, watching the Olympics made me realize how fortunate I was to have lived in this place for 14 months and to visit the many famous landmarks numerous times. It actually made me miss Brazil and Rio ( which I said never would) lol

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.
