Going North Again

We left Washington yesterday mid morning while every one was at the Cherry Blossom Parade and Sakura Matsuri. We were gonna stay, we even arranged our accommodations to do it,  but the amount of people in DC this weekend is unbelievable. The Cherry Blossom Festival the BIGGEST event of the year according to one of the Big Bus operators and since it is the last weekend and the blossoms are finally out and so beautiful, all of USA are in DC for the event. 😀

So we decided to go early instead of trying to get out of the Tidal Basin area after the parade.  We actually made a quick stop at Georgetown Cupcake ( well we had to wait in the long line, there’s ALWAYS a line)

and then we were gonna spend a few hours at the Zoo but all the Zoo parking lots were filled. So we got a car wash, stopped for some sushi to go, and headed out of DC.

Lots and lots of traffic on the I-95  as we traveled as far as White Plains, New York. David & I both enjoy road trips, although he does all the driving, I do the navigating and I take the pics!! lol We seriously love exploring and stopping and seeing new things. WE had some amazing ribs for dinner in a new restaurant The Firehouse Grill, yum!!

Today we left New York early and kept going North stopping along the way and made sure to stop in Kittery at the Outlets!  Kittery Trading Post and the Coach Outlet. Our sweet future daughter in law was looking for a new Spring purse and so we HAD to stop at coach! If you know me, you know I LOVE purses and a good sale. So, blame it on Kristina but I came out with two bags one for me and one for her!! haha

No issues at the border, We only bought 2 purses and cupcakes  ( and David got a T-shirt)

Cruising right along we could have went on home, we were making good time ( David likes the straight Maine interstates) but we decided to spend one more night…. in Woodstock, New Brunswick. We’re back in Canada, back to COLD and SNOW!

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.
