Celebrating Andrew’s Birthday in Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL!

Andrew! Did you ever think in a million years you would be celebrating your 24th Birthday in Rio? 🙂 So much fun!

Today we left Resende early to spend a few days in Rio. First stop the tower in the mountain pass. I am not sure what this once was but we decided to stop and explore. I think in it’s day it was a pretty amazing place.

We got to Rio and got our apartment rental one block from Copacabana beach. It is called Lounge Six and was actually featured in a travel magazine. It has an Eastern feel to it and it is very comfortable and beautifully decorated.

Of course we had to show Andrew & Kristina the Beach!! It’s a rainy day so not tanning time yet but we enjoyed our walk and then went for a drive so they could see the largest favela in Rio.

To celebrate Andrew’s Birthday, we decided to go to Outback at New York City Center. We were REALLY wanting some delicious food! Well since it was a holiday and raining we should have known to get a table the minute we entered the mall but we decided to look around and do a bit of shopping. By the time we went to get a table it was a long wait, we didn’t know how long, but we ended up waiting 2 hours.

Happy 24th Birthday Andrew!! I hope it’s FULL of wonderful memories for you. We love you so much!!

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.
