Fireworks and a Fun Night with Friends!

While many of our expat friends are traveling this Spring Festival Holiday, I LOVE staying in Shenyang for Spring Festival. The whole Chinese New Year intrigues me and I don’t want to miss any of it. January 30th was New Year’s Eve and we were invited out for dinner with friends…just a few floors down. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with Jan, Tim, Nicholas & Ryan. Watched the boys on the Wi. and then it was time for FIREWORKS!!!!

All over the city there were fireworks going off and we had fun getting in on the festivities too! Lots of sparklers and fire throwers, strips of firecrackers and the BIG box of fireworks! While we were having fun with ours, people all over our compound and all over the city were setting stuff off. The closer to midnight it got, the more there were and….it doesn’t stop at midnight. It slows a bit, the odd ones go off through the night and early in the morning the crackers start again and fireworks when it gets dark! Ahhh…I LOVE it!!!! It was so much fun with Jan & Tim, and racing from window to window with the boys. And then later at our own apartment where the view of the river and city is AMAZING!!! What a fun night!! Photos can’t do this post justice. Here are a few BUT please take the time to watch the videos and you’ll feel like you are right here with us! These are for you Michael…wish you could be here!! xo

I LOVE everything about it!!! And even more special to finish my day by watching this city and the spectacular light show in my jammies from the comfort of my window ledge.

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.
