Volta Redonda ZOO…..

A very HOT Saturday and we decided to go to the Zoo! Maybe not a great idea, I forgot that the hot sun is not only exhausting for people but for animals as well…

Zoologico Municipal de Volta Redonda is about 40 minutes from Resende. It is the closest Zoo in our area and we thought we would check it out. We discovered that the Zoo is undergoing renovations and upgrades… a half a million dollars to be spent in the next 3 months or so…some of the venues weren’t open but we had fun exploring a bit…talking to the monkeys and the birds, seeing turtles, iguanas and alligators and the HIGHLIGHT of the adventure…

…On our way out of the park to FINALLY see a real toucan in the wild! They are fascinating and are definitely my new favorite bird!!! For sure the highlight of my day 🙂

Do you see him? Sitting on the beam beside the light. So cool!!

Today we are just relaxing in our air conditioned condo. We planned to go to Rio to the beach early this morning but when I woke at 5am, I was very dizzy once again and have been that way most of today…Hmm? Best not to travel the winding mountain road feeling like that.  Oh, well…I guess it’s nice not to do anything besides I need to feel better because we have an exciting trip planned for next weekend…stay tuned!!

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.
