Our Last Rio Weekend

We have enjoyed so VERY much living only 2 hours from Rio de Janeiro! I have to say it has been our MOST favorite place to go! If we have a long weekend or just need an escape from the CrAzY, if we need a little beach break, if we need some retail therapy( ok, MOSTLY if I need retail therapy, BUT David likes to shop too) or just some really good North American food( Outback, Starbucks)…Rio is just a 2hour drive away!

Well this weekend we are headed there again, and it is our last OVERNIGHT weekend in Rio. ( It is a little bit sad, just a little bit) We plan to do a little beach time if the weather cooperates, at our favorite Copacabana, enjoy a nice dinner, go to the Copacabana Night market, go to the Hippie Market and the “highlight” and REAL reason we are going this weekend…a futebol game at the famous Maracanã stadium! Brazil National team against England!!

Well we are out the door…I’ll post some pics when we get back on Monday!

Have a great weekend!

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.
