Smart Saver

This time in our weekly Smart Saver Series we will take you on a ride along the False Creek with the Aquabus.

The Aquabus is operating since 1983 starting with one 12-passenger fleet on the Hornby Street / Granville Island route. During the following years three more ferris made their way onto the water and the Aquabus expanded their routes to the eastern end of the Creek;  Yaletown, Stamp’s Landing and Science World. By 1992 the Cyquabuses were added to the range of the existing aquabuses. The Cyquabus is designed for the many cyclists using the Aquabus.

The Aquabus is not only a ferry which transports you from A to B, but also a lovely ‘sightseeing‘ tour around the False Creek. If you want you can take the route from ‘the village’ to ‘hornby street’. This is a beautiful way to see more of the diversity of the city and to enjoy te beautiful view over the mountains. Once you are at the hornby stop you can make your way to English Bay and enjoy a walk along the beach towards Stanley park.

Depending on the route you want to make the tickets start at $3.25 to $5.50. The mini-cruise cost you $8 and takes about 20min. A day ticket is $15 and very handy if you want get off and different stops during your cruise.

Enjoy your mini-cruise around False Creek

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

An amazing PuB and CluB NiGHT and a walk through Vancouver, enjoying beautiful weather: That was our weekend. I hope you had a good one as well but let me sum ours up for everybody who had to miss out on it.

On Friday, a few INTERNeX clients who were persistent to finish their working week with a group of nice people and good music met up in The Cambie downtown and enjoyed a few drinks. Even though it was PuB and CluB NiGHT, we were actually more chatting away then being crazy on the dance floor, but I just go ahead and say it was still a very nice night out. The music was a mixture between rock and the newest charts and something I can frankly not categorize, but it was fun watch a few Vancouverites dance to it 😉 Take a look at our Facebook pictures to get an impression…

After granting everybody one day off to get over possible hangovers, a small group of interested people met up again on Sunday. The task of the day was to explore some of Vancouver’s neighborhoods by foot. Luckily, the weather was absolutely beautiful: Loads of sunshine and no rain whatsoever! So our brave little group set out to explore and we started at the Vancouver Public Library. For all of you who have not yet taken a look at it: It is an impressive building resembling the ancient Roman coliseum and was built in the 90s.

Moving on, we went through Yaletown, Vancouver’s former meatpacking district. Though it’s taken years for the neighborhood to really catch on, it is now a funky upscale district of furniture shops, restaurants, multimedia companies, “New York-style” lofts, and lots and lots of clubs.

Continuing our excursion we were reaching False Creek and took the tiny Aquabus to set over to Granville Island, which is not really an island. It contains a collection of shops, restaurants, theaters, artists’ workshops, housing, a hotel, and still-functioning heavy industry. Right at the top of the Aquabus dock is the entrance into the Granville Island Public Market. And guys believe me: This is paradise! Everything that is edible was probably there. Mountains of fruit and candy. Just take a look at our pictures, it was just amazing!

 

 

 

 

 

After a short lunch break, who can resist eating if surrounded by food, we continued our walk. Strolling down the Island Park Walk, we had the chance to enjoy Vancouver’s beautiful skyline in the sunlight. Passing the Burrard Bridge, the Maritime Museum, and a 30 m (98ft.) totem pole, we finally arrived at Kitsilano Beach. One of the many beaches of Vancouver, offering a lot of free recreational activities, like for example volleyball courts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So a relaxed afternoon came to its end and we have one more time a lot of pictures to share with you.

See you all again soon,

Annika
