How was your weekend?

It’s Monday, so sadly the weekend is over. I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed the extra day off. Here is a little recap of what happened over the weekend.

Despite the weather forecast, it was great weather on Saturday and Sunday. So on Saturday, a few of us met up to ride bikes in Stanley Park. Once we got our cruisers, we were on our way. We followed the bike path around the park by the seawall. Thus, we had spectacular views the whole time. Further, we were able to see the water planes take off, which was quite impressive. We stopped a few times to take some nice pictures. One of our first stops was the Brockton Point Lighthouse.

After a while we split up as some wanted to make more stops and also hung around at some spots and enjoyed the view. Some of us continued with the bike ride. We saw Lions Gate Bridge, which leads to North and West Vancouver. We also saw the Girl in a Wetsuit, which is a statue on a rock out in the water. Afterwards, we passed the amazing beaches the park has to offer. At Third Beach we had a break to have some ice cream. Towards the end of our bike ride, we passed by the Lost Lagoon, and there were a lot of cute baby geese. Overall, it was a fun and cool way to explore the park. Thanks to everyone who came and joined us!

I actually enjoyed Stanley Park so much, that I went there the next day again. But this time I walked, which was a bit more relaxing. On Sunday, I also explored the center of Stanley Park. It was really neat and remarkable to see, how much nature there is, considering that we are in a big city.

Stanley Park is beautiful and has so much to offer. I highly recommend visiting the park, if you have not done so yet. Especially, if you want to get away form the stress of the city,  it’s the prefect place to relax.

Have a good day!

What to do on the weekend?

It might not be the best weather today, but the weekend is starting today, so at least some good news, right?! And it gets even better, because it’s going to be a long weekend. Here are some ideas, as to what you could do this weekend.

Monday is Victoria Day, which celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria. Who is Queen Victoria you might ask? She was the Queen of England and head of the British Empire when Canada became an independent country.

On Saturday, we are going to go bike riding in Stanley Park. We will meet at 12 pm at Yes Cycle at 687 Denman St. The first hour for the rental of the bikes will be $8 and the second one $7. So join us and explore Stanley Park.

For all of you who enjoy the Yale, I have an interesting tip for you. This weekend, from the 17 to 20 May is the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair in Surrey. It is one of North’s Americas longest running Rodeos, with additional entertainment and food. Tickets are $10 and up.

market

On Saturday and Sunday is the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The event features an exhibition and a vendor fair with hundreds of creators from around the world. There will also be readings, panels and workshops. The festival will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping and want to find some unique things, it might be worth checking out the Eastside Flea Market on Saturday or Sunday. This is not your average flea market. You will be able to find vintage clothing, quality handcrafted items, jewellery, natural locally-made body care, art, vinyl records, food and many more interesting items. There will be over 50 vendors, so there will be plenty to see. Admission is $3.

Have a wonderful weekend!

How was your weekend?

Another Monday, another week ahead of us. But before we dive into the new week, let’s take a look at what happened on the weekend.

IMG_soccer group

On Friday we went to see the Whitecaps game against the Portland Timbers. We met at the Library Square Public House at around 5:30. That’s also the meeting spot of the Southsiders, the loyal fans of the Whitecaps. So we’ve already experienced some cheering there. At the Pub we had a few beers until 6:45, when we headed towards the stadium. We had pretty nice seats, as our view was great, and we sat next to the Southsiders, so we had good energy around us during the whole game. Before the game, both the American and the Canadian national anthems were played. When the game started the stadium wasn’t too full, but it filled up over time. The Whitecaps were able score a goal in the 9th minute. Even though the Timbers also had some good opportunities to score goals, they weren’t able to score one, leading to the Whitecaps win.

When leaving the stadium, there was a marching band outside performing. Part of our group went home afterwards, while some still went for some drinks. Thanks to everyone who joined and hopefully you enjoyed the game as much as I did.

The rest of the weekend was a rather chill one for me. I hung out with some friends and enjoyed the weather by the water. I hope you guys had a great weekend as well.

See you at the Yale Saloon on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT!

Have a good day!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!

And now for all the Germans and German fans: The “Prost Haus”, a Bavarian themed beer hall, just opened on the rooftop of 900 Granville street. There, you will be able to find authentic German food like Pretzels, Bratwurst and, of course, Beer. So if you’re feeling a bit homesick, go check it out.

In case you’re in the mood for a bit more Mediterranean food, specifically Greek, I got you covered. This weekend is the 41st Vancouver Greek food festival. Not only will you find lots of food there, but also music, entertainment and history. So if you want to experience Greek culture, this is your chance. The festival is at 4500 Arbutus St from Friday to Sunday.

After all that food you might want to consider some exercise. A group of us is going to the trampoline park in New Westminster on Sunday evening at 5:30. You are still welcome to join. Just sent me message on facebook, so I know who is coming. https://www.facebook.com/events/2258540541073418/

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, which means the week is almost over and there is only the weekend left. In case you still do not know what to do, here are some ideas to consider.

beach

First off, good news, it’s going to be sunny all weekend. So you should take advantage of the weather, and spend some time outside. You can go to one of the many beaches in Vancouver, for example Kitsilano beach. While you spend some time by the water, you can read, hang out with friends or even have a picnic.

lighthouse

On Sunday, you should join us at the Lighthouse Park for a hike. The park is located in West Vancouver by the shore, so we will be able to enjoy some beautiful views. It is a fairly easy hike, so it is suitable for everyone. Don’t forget to bring snacks and something to drink. More infos on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/240975033416074/

If you still need plans for tonight, and are in the mood for some action, you can go to the lacrosse game between the Vancouver Warriors and the Toronto Rock at the Rogers arena. The game starts at 7 pm. Ticket prices start at $20, and you can purchase them online or at the arena. More infos at: https://vancouverwarriors.com/schedule/game?id=3401425

Have a great weekend and hopefully I’ll see you on Sunday at the hike.
