Penha

We’re back from our weekend in Rio! It was WONDERFUL!! Sightseeing, great food, beach time and of course shopping…lots of shopping! We are back earlier than later today because David works nights, the first of a week of 12-8’s, and he needs to have some sleep before he goes in. It was just so great to get to Rio, I love that city…so much fun!

On of our sight seeing adventures…

Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Penha sits high on a cliff in a Favela in Rio. You see it when you fly in to Rio airport. We see it every time we go to Rio. David ALWAYS comments he wants to go there, It’s on his Brazil bucket list!

This is where we went on Friday!

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.
