A little french on FRIDAY oui oui

Ahh oui! It’s Friday!

I LOVE Fridays!

Especially after this week. I have had a crazy headache most of the week. I’m not sure why, I haven’t had headaches like that for years. AND…David had a nuts work week! Yesterday there was a major break down on a machine and he was at work for 17 hours!!!!! Yep, 17 hours. So by the time Friday evening rolls around and he finally got home from work, all I could say was “please Lord let him have a quiet weekend with no breakdowns that the guys have to call him in”

As you know we lived in China and Brazil for a few years as expats with my husband’s work. It was an AWESOME opportunity to meet people from all over the world. We still stay in touch with many of them and when the opportunity arises that someone is traveling to Nova Scotia on business with the company we like to try our best to see them. Such was the case last night.

Franck, from France, was here for a week at the valley plant, so not in Bridgewater, BUT he was traveling through Halifax. His flights were pretty messed up the first of the week and he was late getting here and with only 3 hours sleep started a full week of meetings. The only day he really had was Friday after work when he drove from Kentville back to Halifax to stay the night before flying home to France on Saturday.

So…Franck & I messaged this week, and David & I decided to meet him in the city Friday night to catch up! Much of the evening was “company talk” with David & Franck filling each other in on there area of responsibilities and projects but it was nice to reminisce a bit too.

It was so great to see Franck and see what he’s been up to the past 3 years! I think the experience of living in a small community of expats in a foreign country brings you together and keeps you close. You become family for each other on holidays and special events. These are moments you never forget!!

Take care dear friend and hopefully our paths will cross again real soon. Safe travels!

Au revoir cher ami

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.
