Highlights of the Year 2016: October, November and December

Last but not least the fourth quarter of 2016. I hope you guys had as much fun as I had looking back on all the things we did!

October

October started of with a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium and a great Thanksgiving dinner at Ten Ten Tapas. We also had a lot of PuB NiGHTS organized. And a special night for Halloween.

October.jpgThe weekend trip of October was a trip to the Rocky Mountains. During this trip we went to the National Parks Jasper and Banff. We also went to Lake Louise, Mount Robson and Colombia Ice Field. We also enjoyed a night out in Banff and enjoyed a night at our Mountain View Cabins with a BBQ party around the bonfire. It was a great trip!

Also that weekend we went to Grouse Mountain for the ones that stayed in Vancouver. We did a great hike on the Grouse Grind and enjoyed the amazing view.

November

In November we started of with great PuB NiGHTs. We also went to CandyTown in November. It was raining a lot but still lots of fun to enjoy the Christmas spirit already!

In the last week of November a big group of Scandinavians were coming for a few days. The first day was full with orientations and of course a PuB NiGHT. The second day a Stanley Park Tour was planned. And on the last night we had a PuB NiGHT planned in the Blarney Stone. It was a great week!

December 

December was filled with PuB NiGHTs. We had lots of fun at the Met and the Bimini.christmas

On the third Wednesday of December we had a Christmas Party. We first went out for dinner at the Spaghetti Factory, which was great! When we all finished our dinner, we started with Secret Santa, which was lots of fun too! After the dinner and Secret Santa some of us went to the Met to end the night with some karaoke!

A big thank you to Sara, Andreas and Janel for organizing the PuB NiGHTS, events and trips in these months!

We hope you all will have a great New Years Eve and an even greater 2017!

Highlights of the Year 2016: July, August and September

This week it is time to start on the second half of the year 2016! Let’s discuss the months July, August and September!

July

July was the month of the European Soccer Championships. We watched a lot of games together in different pubs, which was really nice!

We also organized a food weekend. In one weekend we went to an Italian Night Market, did a BBQ the next day and on Sunday we went to a Sushi restaurant. This was a really fun and delicious weekend.

The weekend after the food weekend we wanted to do some sports. So we went to Deep cove and did some kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddling. There was also a possibility to do the Quarry Rock trail. We had a great and sporty day! The next week we had some great activities like the Festival of Lights and a Pool and Picnic day. And of course, the weekly PuB NiGHTS.

We closed July off with a great weekend of camping and river rafting, organized by LJuly Rafting.jpgee from Big Wolf Tours, which definitely was a weekend to never forget! We took a swim after getting our tents up, played some beer pong and beach volleyball and had a delicious BBQ. After that we partied till late around the bonfire. The next day it was time to go river rafting. Half way through we sailed to the bottom of a 5meter tall cliff and climbed up and jumped back into the river again. This was definitely scary but lots of fun! After the rafting we packed up our tents and bags and went back to Vancouver.

August

August started of with the Night Nation Run, it was a 5K run with music, lights and DJs, which made is a huge party!

Another event in August was a day trip to Lynn Canyon. We started by walking over the Suspension Bridge, after that we went exploring the park by hiking and searching for some black bears in the forest. Unfortunately we didn’t find any bears, but we had a great time hiking and ended up bathing in the cool water at Lynn Canyon.

The weekend trip of August was to the Rocky Mountains. We organized this trip together August Rockies.jpgwith West Trek Tours. On the first day we went to Hope, Kamloops, Spahats Falls and the
Cowboy Ranch Experience during our trip to Valemount. On day 2 we went to Mount Robson, Jasper, the Athabasca Falls, Bow Lake and arrived in Banff to spend the night and go to the nigtclub Hoodoo. On day 3 we did a Banff tour, went to Lake Louise, Emerald Lake and checked into our Mountain View Cabins in Golden. We had a great BBQ and a bonfire party. On day 4 it was time to go back to Vancouver, but not before we went to the Last Spike, the Okanagan Valley and had a picnic on the beach in Kelowna.

In the month August we also had our weekly PuB NiGHTS, which included one Karaoke party.

September

September started of with a fun Poker Quiz Night, a Scavenger Hunt in Vancouver and a Bowling and Billiard night. All these events were lots of fun and definitely has to be in the program for next year again!

14330079_10154512816572103_2438674369225802898_n.jpgWe also had a weekend trip in September to Portland. On Friday morning we drove two minivans out of Canada and started our trip to Portland. Our first event in Portland was going to the Rose garden, which is the oldest public rose test garden in the US. After that we ate dinner at Pacific Pie and checked in into our hotel, where we had a great evening chilling in our pajamas or having a room party. The next day it was time to go shopping. After a whole day of shopping we had dinner at Clyde’s Prime Rib and checked out the nightlife of Portland. On Sunday we went to the famous Voodoo donut shop and walked around the Portland Market, where we could buy all kinds of different handcraft from local people. After that we had a walking tour around the city called “Secrets of Portlandia” which was a stand up comedy tour about Portland’s history and culture. And after the tour it was time to get back to Vancouver.

We want to give a special thank you to Sofie, Sara, Klara and Phillipp who organized the PuB NiGHTS, events and trips in this part of 2016.

We want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas!

Highlights of the Year 2016: April, May and June

Another week, another part of 2016. This week the months April, May and June are to discuss.

April April Bränboll.jpg

April started off with Bränboll. Bränboll is a game played in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany. The rules are different in every area, so I am not able to explain them. If you ever want to play it go to Google, YouTube or ask someone who knows the game. We had a great day and lots of fun playing this game!

We also enjoyed the PuB NiGHTs and the Beer Pong Night at Cambie.

In April we also had another Rocky Mountains trip! This one was different from the one in February. The first day we travelled to Valemount. After arriving there we had a dinner and played some Hockey in the Rockies. The rest of the evening we sat around the campfire. On day two we drove to Banff. On our way there we stopped at Mount Robson, travelled through Jasper, visited the Athabasca Falls, stopped at the Columbia Icefields and saw Peyto and Bow Lake. After arriving to the hotel we had dinner and went on a night out at Hoodoo in Banff. The third day was a drive to Golden. On our way we stopped at Lake Louise. When we arrived in Golden we checked in into our Mountain View Cabins and enjoyed a BBQ dinner. On the fourth day we already had to drive back to Vancouver. During this drive we stopped at the Okanagan Valley for lunch and joined the Highway 5 to drive through the Coquihalla Valley, where we say the Last Spike and Othello Tunnels.

In April Rebecca joined us in the INTERNeX team, which was great! She is already doing a great job in developing and marketing the Outbound INTERNeX Program.

Lasertag.jpgMay

In May there was a Color Me Rad 5K Race in Surrey, some of us joined this race and had a great time! We also played laser tag in the end of May. It was definitely lots of fun! And like every month we had PuB NiGHTs this month which were great evenings!

June

In June it was a great month to go to the beach, the weather was finally good enough so we made use of that!

We also had another Rocky Mountains trip this month, because some missed the trip in April. We had the same program as the trip in April, which was a great success!!

Another trip in June was the Tofino trip. We went there by bus and had two great days! Some of us went with the Water Taxi Tour to the Maquinna Provincial Park to see the natural hot springs, whales and other wildlife.

We also went to the movie Finding Dory as it just came out in the theaters. Which was lots of fun! We also had our weekly PuB NiGHTs again and went to the Beer Pong Tournament in Cambie.

In the second part of the year the PuB NiGHTS, events and trips were organized by Sandra, Julia and Veronica thank you for doing a great job!
