Sugar Moon Farm – Day Trip From Halifax

Posted on: February 16, 2018 at 3:17 pm, in:

Sugar Moon Farm is the perfect place for a winter day trip from Halifax. A working maple syrup farm about an hour and a half outside the downtown core of Halifax, nestled in the Cobequid Hills, you’ll find the coziest building filled with delicious maple inspired food, family fun and lots of history. They have been making syrup since 1973 as Boondock Maple Products + Pancake House, Quita and Scott took over from the original owner Bob in 1996 and renamed it Sugar Moon Farm. Quita and Scott and their family live on the farm and you can feel their passion for maple everywhere.

No Spend Date Night Ideas

It’s almost Valentine’s Day but we’re right in the middle of our No Spend Month! If you’re low on funds or in the middle of your own no spend month, I have some great ideas for you to have a date night without spending money!

Make Your Own Cards

We’ve done this before. I usually go for something cheesy like “Do you play Quidditch, because you look like a keeper!”

Play a Board Game

One of our favorite pastimes! I’m sure you have some games or a deck of cards in your house somewhere. (more…)


Dos and Don’ts of the Blue Lagoon

The photos are gorgeous; the icy blue water of the Blue Lagoon is deceptively warm, especially in the cold Icelandic air. I loved my trip to the Blue Lagoon on my first trip to Iceland. I learned there is a right way and a wrong way to do it, so I want to make sure you don’t make the common mistakes so you can have the best and most relaxing day ever!

Do

Pre book your tickets. It is required that you buy a ticket online before you go. You can buy them on their website here.There are three levels of tickets; Comfort, Premium and Luxury. I would personally go with the Premium because of the robe and slippers but here’s a bit about them:

Comfort (6990ISK): Entrance to the lagoon, a silica mud mask, use of towel and 1 drink of choice

Premium (9990ISK): Entrance to the lagoon, a silica mud mask, use of towel and 1 drink of choice, algae mask, use of bathrobe, use of slippers, optional reservation at LAVA, and sparkling wine if dining at LAVA

Luxury (53000ISK): Entrance to exclusive lounge, private change rooms, entrance the lagoon, a silica mud mask, use of towel and 1 drink of choice, algae mask, use of bathrobe, use of slippers, optional reservation at LAVA, and sparkling wine if dining at LAVA (more…)
