What to do on the weekend?

Yet another weekend ahead of us, so here are some inspirations I want to give you to fill out your weekend! =)

Victoria Day Trip
Victoria Day trip July 2022

Some of us get to experience a great event on the weekend: We’re going to Vancouver Island to see Tofino with the possibilities to go whale watching or surfing. We then head to Victoria to see that beautiful city as well. To top everything we then are going to Nanaimo to go bungee jumping! =)) Hopefully we can do a beach fire in Tofino (I really want to experience this!). I think it’s going to be such a nice event with lots of great moments, sunsets and cool people. Don’t miss the next time we go to Vancouver Island =)

In fact the weather is going to get a bit colder, so going for a walk in Stanley Park in Summer with the nice sunny vibes is not going to last any longer. Maybe give Stanley Park a try and go for a walk as long as it’s still sunny out. It’s one of North America’s largest urban green spaces with lots of forest-and-mountain oceanfront views. Also the park sit studded with nature-hugging trails, family friendly attractions, sunset-loving beaches and also tasty places to eat at. If you walk around the Seawall, which was built between 1917 and 1980, you can see the nice Waterfront area and next to it the beautiful nature of a forest. You can walk the trail in roughly three hours and see lots of figures and attractions like the popular totem poles of an abandoned 1930s plan to create a First Nations “theme” village. There are also some hidden figures and statues which you might be able to catch. Some natural attractions like the Lost Lagoon offers views of a little lake with animal wildlife such as raccoons, squirrels, birds and coyotes. Just keep in mind to give wildlife its space and do not approach or feed it. It doesn’t matter for which reason you come to Stanley Park, just a walk, jogging, going to the beach, seeing some wildlife, seeing some art, taking some pictures…..etc. Stanley Park will serve everybody who has some expectations about it. I promise!

Richmond night market

If you’re not into nature I can recommend going to the Richmond Night Market. It’s located right besides the Fraser River, which separates South Vancouver from Richmond. You can get typical asian food and drinks and also some arts and crafts from the asian culture. The variety of different things you can get there is phenomenal! Asia’s night markets are all-night extravaganzas of tastes, smells and sounds. But you don’t have to journey far to indulge in this epic tradition. Devour crab meat noodles, BBQ squid, ramen, Japanese poutine, Brazilian pastries, spare ribs, sushi, Afghan bolani, even sausage in a waffle cone—with 70 food and 100 retail stalls; you’ll have no problems finding some food. If you go to Richmond, the whole vibe changes because for example the signs are now firstly in Chinese and then in English. So be interested in checking out a different culture at the Richmond Night Festival!

We hope you’ll have a great weekend and the inspirations help you. Do you have any plans yet? Let me know how your weekend was at the next Pub Night. Have a great weekend!

Cheers,
Tino =)
