Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

I guess this would depend on how I plan on spending the day. Alter Egos(Backpackers) is right around the corner on Gottingen, so I usually grab at least 3 coffees a day there, when I wake up, running to work, or if I'm going downtown. If I want to sit and have a coffee I usually wind up at FRED. The atmosphere is great, tons of table space to do work or have a meeting, they have the best Americano in Halifax (I think at least)

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

I'm pretty new to the beer drinking scene, but I know the Seahorse is great for a show and cheap beer. On a chilly afternoon the Company House has Propeller beer on tap and I've been told it's some of the best in town, also if you come to the Company House I might serve you!

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

I'm not much of a shopper, but when I get a chance I go to the thrift stores on Queen street and rummage through the racks for new sweaters and coats.

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

Anywhere you can see the sunrise over the ocean. White Point Beach is probably one of the greatest, rocky beaches there is. Give me a big chair and warm mug of tea and I'll stare at the horizon all day long.

Name 3 things we've gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Take a drive to Lunenburg and see the shops and culture there.

2. Go to a show (or 6 depending on how long you're here... we've got THE BEST music scene)

3. Go down to the Halifax boardwalk and take a walk to the Seaport Market on Saturday morning. Then ceasers and lunch at the Carleton. Then go check out ANOTHER SHOW.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

Nova Scotia is where I was born and raised. I love being from the East Coast, the small town, community feel. The music scene and the hard working attitude of everyone I seem to meet. The cold winters (I might be the only one). We have a beautiful and thriving arts community in almost every town here... from Yarmouth to Sydney. Every time I leave the province, I'm excited for about 3 days then I just want to smell the salty air and smile at the people walking by me on the street. It's not just one thing - it's pretty much everything.
