Shenyang Botanical Garden

Shenyang Botanical Garden is located in the eastern suburbs of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province about ten kilometers from the city. It covers an area of 467 acres and displays various kinds of plants from the Northeast, North, Northwest and Inner Mongolia of China. It is a popular tourist attraction, with over 1,700 kinds of plants, including a rare plant, the Korean pine, now to be seen growing in Shenyang.

The Botanical Garden was always a favorite to visit, especially through the seasons…May is Tulip month, June is Peonies and July is lilies. I love the smell of the lilies you find in Shenyang.

Since David was not expected to begin work until Monday ( I think he is anxious to get started though) we HAD to do something. We are not quite ready to begin major adventures but a few familiar places seemed like a fun idea.

Today we explored the Botanical Garden…well just a tiny bit of it. Lots more to see next time!

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.
