and I am REALLY not gonna miss it!

You have heard me mention it so many times, how Brazil is a LOUD country! It is so very different from Canada.

Two things I WILL NOT miss…the loudness and our very small apartment! The two have gone hand in hand at making our year + in Brazil more of a challenge than it needed to be.

YOU try relaxing sitting on a stupid small couch if you wanna call it that, or getting a good night sleep in a small uncomfortable double bed!

Then there is the NOISE factor…early morning and supper time aerobic gym noise ( I feel like I have my very own personal trainer in my apartment)

as well as futebol games, parties with children screaming, and the late night disco parties ( until 5:30am) on Wednesday and Sunday.Don’t they have to work?

Oh and I almost forgot ( as if I could) the jerk in the downstairs apartment that pumps out his music with bass boost all hours of the day and night. No need for me to have music playing. Hey, I love music, I love listening to LOUD current music( at least he plays all English, yes he is Brazilian), BUT this is ridiculous in small uninsulated apartments. I don’t want to listen to what EVERYONE else is playing!  And to think I get a fine if I just want to hang a few clothes out on my balcony to dry?

SORRY for complaining…I notice it especially after coming back from Canada…and it has been a LOUD week! Sometimes a girl just needs a little quiet to think…

NOPE, can’t say I will miss this!

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.
