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

Tim’s is the closest, so I get my double double there. However, bliss is a latte from Java Blend when I make the big city trip.

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

My backyard. Or any of my friends’ well-stocked homes.

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

Not a shopper, but I am a magpie for beauty, oddity and story - so artist’s studios, galleries, Plan B, consignment shops, and the Bookmark.

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

On the ocean. Returning.

1. Travel down the side roads.

2. Talk to strangers.

3. Do something for the first time.

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

A brilliant, scrappy, ‘just-do-it’ artist, music, and literary community.
