INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Hello guys,

Another work weeks begins today! So let’s discuss this amazing and sunny weekend! On Saturday we went together to the Celebration of Light at English Bay. This is one of the biggest firework festivals in America!

 

First we met at the Starbucks. We had some cool frappuccino’s and other drinks.. After that we went down to the beach. It was early, so there was not a big crowd yet! We found a great spot in the middle of the beach.

Because we had to wait a few hours there was enough time to buy some food, and enjoy the sun! There were already a lot of people, but it was nice and friendly.

Around 8 pm the sun was getting lower and lower.. As you can see on the picture a big boat pumped water up in the air! After 9 the sun was gone. The skies were pretty clear, great weather for a big firework show!

 

At 10 pm the show started. This was the first night of the event! It’s really worth the wait when you see the show. I never saw so much fireworks before. And there will be 2 more of these great nights! 

  • Wednesday July 31 10:00 pm (host: Canada)
  • Saturday August 3 10:00 pm (host: Thailand)

So there you go! What do you think? Hope your weekend was awesome as well!
Enjoy your Monday today!

Cheers,

Jelle

Vancouver’s Must See Attractions – part V

Harbor cruise & events

Have you ever experienced Vancouver from the water?

Harbor Cruises is the perfect company for that. They are the leading boat, sightseeing company in Vancouver. The company provides unparalleled views of Vancouver and offers a unique way to experience the city.

Harbor cruise offers daily as well as nightly regular scheduled cruises around Vancouver.
These cruises include daily tours around Vancouver harbor in summer.
Enjoy a beautiful sunset while having a nice West coast-themed dinner with one of the sunset cruises.
Or take one of the luncheon cruises through the clam blue waters of the Indian arm.

While the boats are driven by Vancouver’s only authentic paddlewheel, tour guides will provide live commentary as the boats cruise through the waterways of surrounding Vancouver.

The cruises will departure from Denman Street seven days a week, from April till October and December.

 

Cheers,

George

English Bay

Coming from a little town in Ontario, I’m still getting used to the amount of activities available in British Columbia.  Where I lived, downtown consisted of a gas station, one grocery store and an arena. I absolutely love that everything is at your doorstep here in Vancouver!

On Friday, I went out to the Blarney Stone in Gas Town, where people danced the night away to Irish music and enjoyed the company of good friends. I had a really good night there and think I’ll go back soon!

Not wanting to waste a minute, I woke up Saturday morning and hustled downtown. The shops on Robson Street were whispering to me… “Look at the nice shoes I have,” …”Come in, you need some new clothes Laura.” Needless to say, I  ended up with many shopping bags in my hand by noon that day!

Sunday I went to the Vancouver Lookout with Jan, who found an internship through INTERNeX and just flew in from Germany. I think he will like Vancouver a lot! After taking the bus home, around 6 p.m I had dinner. However,  I still wasn’t ready to let the weekend end.

I had always heard that English Bay was a nice place to watch the sunset, so off I went! I arrived around 8:20 p.m., where many other people had also gathered to take in the view. English Bay is the downtown core’s most populated beach – attractive to people of all ages. If you haven’t been there yet, I suggest you go! Bring a friend and a frisbee, there’s lots of space to run around.

Here are a few pictures I took, beautiful isn’t it?

Hope you get the chance to see the sunset at English Bay. If you’re an early riser, I’m sure the sunrise is just as beautiful!

Bye for now,

Laura
