A trip to Halifax wouldn’t be complete without visiting Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. The restored site was a key naval station during the British Empire.
British soldier coat and hat: From Citadel (not mine)
The coat was not petite-friendly, however it was very thick and warm.
Cannons are biggerr than they appear.
Tee: Zara, sz XS
Cardigan: Banana Republic, sz PXXS
Wool Shorts: Talula Babaton, sz 2
Flip Flops: Havaianas, sz 36/37
Nello Necklace: Amrita Singh
Entrance for a storage room or a entrance for an extremely short person?
My last meal in Halifax: Fish and chips on the second floor of Salty’s (great view!). Had enough lobster for a while. During the trip I ate 4 steamed lobsters, McLobster, and scallops stuffed with lobster, which is almost a lobster per day! I do not recommend this diet to anyone!
Overall, the trip was fun, relaxing, and enjoyable. Food was great, Haligonians were extremely friendly and welcoming, downtown Halifax was easy to drive around. Great for families. Meals were relatively cheap and the flight was cheap. I didn’t check hotel prices since our accommodations were provided by the festival organizers. We stayed at the university residences and I am certain that this was their most economical option, but also acceptable. The flight was very reasonable, $288 including tax, and we were there on a long weekend. However, this is definitely not a city for shopping!
Stay tuned for my next recap of my summer adventures!
