It’s just Monday…relaxing and hanging with my girl

Today was a relaxing day just hanging with my girl. David had to work this morning and Laura & I slept in. Laura longer than me. I got up had coffee and watched DJ and James’video blog and even SKYPED with James in Japan.Mondays are pool cleaning day so the pool was CLOSED. Actually I think most pools in Brazil are closed on Mondays…seems that way anyway. Laura is wanting some tanning time so I gave up my place on the balcony.

After she had a shower, I vacuumed the apartment, did a bit of laundry and we SKYPED with Mom & Dad and Abby we went for a walk in Manejo. It is an area of the city that is just around the corner from my apartment.  We did a little browsing and shopping and picture taking. Laura bought some Brazilian jean shorts. A couple young boys started a conversation…it was funny, they were so excited to practice their English and wanted to add Laura to their facebook. We even got introduced to their Mom & Grandma. The little guys biggest dream is to go to the US.

Yes she is in Brazil!

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.
