Passports sent for Chinese Visas

Another step in the “Back to China Process”. This morning David took the paperwork into the office to be sent away for our Chinese Visas.

This part ALWAYS makes me a little bit nervous because for a week or so…I FEEL STUCK!!! All my identification is sent away and in the hands of someone else. From the person responsible to send it from Resende, to the courier truck, to the person responsible to get it ready in Rio, to the courier truck there, to the people at the consulate….ugh!!Oh my nerves!

The BIGGEST thing that makes me nervous is that if I NEEDED or WANTED to leave the country…I couldn’t right now. And not only that, in Brazil theft is a big thing and I just hope and pray that the courier truck doesn’t get robbed or stolen!! You might think I am over reacting a bit BUT our tax package with all our personal information that was being couriered to us was stolen in SaoPaulo!! The WHOLE truck was stolen! So these things can happen.

Hopefully all will go well and in a week or so we will have our passports back with our Visas. They say 3-4 days for processing but you know….

In the meantime, we will just have to stay put!

Have a good Monday everyone!! Enjoy your Victoria Day!

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.
