Monday. Time to look back on the weekend. Here we go!
Friday. I started off the weekend with a relaxed evening at Sunset Beach. Many joined INTERNeX’ spontaneous ‘Pizza & Sunset’ event. Favourite action of the night involved throwing around wooden sticks. The game is called Kubb, which is a famous Swedish outdoor activity. Even people walking by the beach stopped, took pictures and asked for the rules. I’m sure we’re setting a new trend here with this game. The night passed by quickly with eating pizza, playing card games, chatting and watching the stunning sunset. When it got dark and a bit cooler, a few of us went to a pub on Davie Street for a pint (greets to our English guys) and some more card games.
Saturday. Time to sleep in and take it easy this morning, before the next INTERNeX event of the weekend started. ‘Honda Celebration of Light’ was planned for the evening. Many people were expected to attend this great event, so we already headed to English Bay in the afternoon to reserve a good spot. Not the worst place to spend a hot day like Saturday, especially with good company. More and more people of our gang arrived and settled down. We bridged the time until the firework started with games, music and snacks. Then, it was finally time for the big show, which was prepared by a team from South Africa. They did a great job! It was beautiful to see the fireworks lightening the sky for nearly half an hour. On our way home, we accidentally walked along the Relish, so we took the chance and got ourselves a pint, of course.
Sunday. Literally. To cool down a bit, I decided to visit the Metropolis shopping mall for a few hours. A great place to find everything you need, including 888 paper mache pandas. These are part of an exhibition that is traveling around the world. However, the weather was too nice to spend the entire day indoors. A great outdoor activity for hot days? Cycling! The place-to-be to do so is definitely Stanley Park. After a short stop at the bike rental, we got our one-speed-cruisers and biked relaxed around the seawall. I was, again, impressed by the beautiful nature so close to busy downtown. Amazing! The weekend ended with Sushi (no pint this time ;-)) and a lovely sunset on the way home.
That’s how I spent another perfect weekend in Vancouver. I hope you had a good one as well! See you at Wednesday’s PuB NiGHT at The Lennox Pub.
