Today David was off and we joined in a road trip with Tricia, Richard & Danielle to Benxi.

Today was another fogged in, smoggy, highly polluted day and we were so happy to leave the city behind. About 65 km or so from Shenyang in the mountainous area of Liaoning province is the city of Benxi. It is another touristy spot famous for the Benxi Water Cave. Benxi Water Cave was our first day trip adventure the first time we were in China in 2011. I will ALWAYS remember Benxi because it is the place where I ate a whole frog! 

The sun was warm, the sky was blue and it was just so wonderful to breathe in the fresh air.

Lunch was the same spot as before where you go to the kitchen and see all the fresh items and order your food. NO frog this time!! But I did nibble at a chicken foot! Haha 😀

After lunch then it was back to the city…

And back to the pollution!

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.
