Starting out Simple

Ok…..we’ll go easy on you the first day or so… That’s what we told them! You know…jet leg and all. I understand completely. I’m always exhausted with the time difference traveling back and forth to China.

Today the boys actually slept in. It surprised me because this morning it was light at 4am. ( I love Summer here) They took their time getting up and around, a leisurely breakfast enjoying our view. I am glad though because the first days are the hardest adjusting.

So this morning we went out, registered their visit with the local police, tried to get SIM cards for their phones but for some reason they wouldn’t work (phones must be locked 😦 , and then we had lunch, and a Starbucks, and hit Taiyuan Jie and the underground! We did a little exploring showing them around this awesome city we call home.

Tonight our Chinese friends wanted to treat them to duck!! On the list of MUST have items in China is Peking duck. Most people try to have this in Beijing but there are some really good restaurants in Shenyang for duck and since the invitation was there, we were happy to accept. Tonight not only did the boys enjoy authentic Chinese duck, they had duck heads, duck parts, duck soup and numerous other Chinese dishes. It was a fun evening and fun first day!

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.
