An early kick-off to summer in Halifax at OpenCity on May 16-17 gave me lots to think about. Mostly, about how I’m going to spend the summer here at home in Nova Scotia before my next travel adventure in the fall.

The short version: I am going to spend summer 2012 traveling in my hometown and home province like I do when I’m traveling “away.”

The long version: I need help. My travel will be limited. Limited time-wise to weekends and limited financially by having to rent cars. It’ll mostly be daytrips for the same reason.

However, I’m going to do my best to show Nova Scotians and visitors alike there is a lot to do, see, and eat here. I’ll be using published travel guides and information from tourism promotion organizations, sourcing through social media, rooting out fun, unique things to see and do.

This is also an open call for guest posters! If you live in a corner of Nova Scotia that simply must be seen, email me and we can talk about your idea.

It’s going to be a great summer, Nova Scotia, I’m making the most of it!
