How was your weekend?

What do Granville, Chinese Garden, Playland, Bourbon and Koerners Pub have in common? They all have a ‘N’ in the word. Yes, that’s true. But they also have another thing in common. I visited all these places this weekend. Curious what I did there? Find out in the new ‘How was your weekend?’ blog post.

We played some German music to get in the mood for the Oktoberfest party. When it was 6 o’clock, it was time to go for the real work and we went off to Koerners Pub at UBC to have a nice Oktoberfest. We drank beers in big cups, sang along with music and danced at the outside stage.

Saturday I woke up. Barely. I knew exactly what I was going to do this day: Nothing! Laying in bed all day watch some Netflix. But when the night arrived, I had to get changed for some more drinks. Because it was the last night for Lara, we went to the Bourbon to celebrate she leaves. Just kidding, I will miss you. We played some beer pong and pool. After all a nice night.

We not only saw scary things, but also a lot of random things. From Chinese dragons to ghost busters, we saw it all. After the parade Lucas and I went to the Chinese Gardens. We learned all about the Yin and Yang of every little detail in the garden. In the night we went to the Fright Nights at Playland. We went into the attractions and haunted houses. I thought they wouldn’t scare me, but I was wrong about that part. In the haunted houses I scared a few times. After trying a BeaverTail we went home. Also had a nice weekend? Share your story at the next PuB NiGHT.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend!

Last Saturday we went for a fantastic Big Bus Tour around Vancouver. Vancouver has too many places to see, but if you don’t have enough time this bus is the perfect option for you!

It was a little bit cloudy at the beginning, but still we could enjoy the beautiful city and during the tour the sun showed up!

We started the tour in Water Street, in Gastown, and the bus took us to the most beautiful and important places in Van!

The bus from Gastown took us to Canada place and then continued its way to English Bay.

The bus continued to Stanley Park, and there we  changed to a special bus which goes over the whole park. There we could enjoy the Lost Lagoon, the Totem Poles and then we stopped to take pictures of Lions Gate Bridge!

This was one of my favorite parts of the tour because from some points of Stanley Park we could see the amazing skyline of Downtown Vancouver!

After Stanley Park, we continued our way to Granville Island, this amazing and peculiar place!

There we could take a ferry loop on False Creek from Granville Island to English Bay and return.

When we finished exploring a little bit the Public Market we came back to finish our tour, going over the Chinese Gardens and Chinatown.

I forgot to mention that during our tour we could enjoy 2 big events in Downtown: The Anime Revolution 2013 and the Vancouver Zombie Walk!

Without any doubt, it was an amazing afternoon !!

What did you do during the weekend guys? I hope you enjoyed it as I did !

See you soon!
