Where do you want To travel the most and why?
GL: Great Exuma, Bahamas. There are sapphire blue waters everywhere and jaw dropping unspoiled white sandy beaches. I would love to swim with the pigs on Pig Beach.
Your favourite book(s)?
GL: My favourite book is The Stand by Stephen King. I enjoy a good series like A Song of Ice and Fire by G. R. R. Martin and Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’m trying to read all of Agatha Christie’s novels and I’m just getting into cozy mysteries.
Your favourite movie(s)?
GL: My favourite movies are Christmas rom coms. Serendipity, Four Christmases, Love Actually. I hardly ever go see a movie in theatres unless it’s a new Star Wars movie.
What is the best thing about living in Nova Scotia, and what is the worst?
GL: I have only lived here. I like living close to the ocean and the beautiful beaches. They’re a bit chilly though. The best thing about Nova Scotia are the historic sites and scenery. We’re steeped in history. I love the architecture in downtown Halifax and that we commemorate the Halifax explosion and honour the sinking of the Titanic. It’s a beautiful province.
My least favourite thing about the province is that right now we have a shortage of doctors. Our health care system is in peril. A lot of people have to move away for work. The unemployment rate is highest in Atlantic Canada.
What are your favourite eateries in Nova Scotia?
GL: There are so many unique restaurants in Nova Scotia, and unfortunately, I have not been to very many of them. My husband and I frequent Modern Orchid for Asian cuisine and Vero Pizza for wood fired pizzas. They’re in Dartmouth Crossing, which is a shopping district.
Please suggest some best places to visit and things to do in Nova Scotia.
GL: All the historical sites. Citadel Hill, Fort Anne, Grand Pre, Louisbourg. There are lots of vineyards and breweries to visit in Halifax and the valley. Blomodin look-off has a lovely panoramic view of the 5 counties in the valley. Lunenburg is fun! I love the Ovens sea caves.
When is the best time of year to visit Nova Scotia?
GL: It’s definitely the warmest in the Summertime. July and August are when you would want to go to one of the many beaches. My favourite season is Autumn. There is lots to do year round.
If you could live in any city in the world, where would it be?
GL: I think I would enjoy London but the weather is often gloomy. I love the look of Willemstad, Curaçao and it’s much warmer!
If you could give tourists visiting Nova Scotia a piece of advice, what would it be?
GL: There is a lot to see and do. Some top tourist destinations are not close to Halifax. Shopping malls are not close to downtown but there are boutique shops on Spring Garden Road. Rent a car or look into day trips by bus from Ambassatours Gray Line. They have boat tours too!
