Last Weekend… Boys Away!

Well, this is our last weekend in Shenyang AND David did not stay in Shenyang! It was the last opportunity and only weekend that would work for some of the guys to get away for an all guys weekend. The destination…Dalian.


Last year this time almost to the day, David and a bunch of the guys he works with, fellow expats, went to Beijing for the weekend, just to hang out, climb a Great Wall section and do some different things. They had such a great time and all year talked about doing it again.


Not a lot of pictures because well you know…it’s a guys weekend haha But, This weekend they did spend some time at the sea, in a pool, on a track, and on a mountain and well who knows where and what else BUT they had a great time so I’m told!!

And So…What did I do on our last weekend here? Well, I enjoyed some ME time. ENJOYED my “Happy place”… I walked in the park, relaxed in my empty quiet apartment( enjoyed all the beautiful roses David gave me), enjoyed the view that I will miss, had a couple nice long naps, ate when and what I wanted, watched lots of Glee ( Glee marathon weekend on Starworld and I like the music) and spent a bit of the weekend with friends. I went to dinner with my Chinese friends and their sweet Auntie and on Sunday went to a Chinese wedding.

And even had one of the sweetest kindest security guards give me a bag full of corn and beans. He had a note with my building and apartment on it. ( For the Canadian foreigner on Floor 16) So thoughtful! These are the THINGS I will miss most…the people, the morning routine and the regulars I meet in the park…did I say the people?


Time is going soooooo quickly! David is home safe and sound now, this weekend is done and I’m heading to bed!  By this time next weekend…well, you know where we’ll be!

Here’s to a good last week!!

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.
