How was your Weekend?

Who said fall in Vancouver is all rainy? All I can see is the beautiful sun, blue sky and all these sun-loaded energetic people. So this weekend I finally got to see the stunning Stanley Park. This is probably everything but an inside tip, but just go out there, rent a bike and see it yourself. In case are you not the sporty kind of person, there is also the very nice Stanley Park Brewing, which I can recommend just as much ;-).
But the true highlight of the past weekend, was clearly the Haunted House. And I am saying this as a person, that gets scared super easily, but even than – this was an insane Halloween experience to be made! It took us quite a while, to get to the place, where the Halloween magic happens.

As we were waiting in the queue, a great show was already provided. Dancing mummies, and monsters made the time fly by. And already here I got the first heart attack, as some of the actors, jumped up from behind and wandered through the people, giving us some scary looks and good frights. As plans were made, like who is to leave behind, and at what points we should be smarter than people in all these horror movies, it was finally time to go in. And I promise you, I was screaming my soul out. Since I do not want to spoil this too much, I am keeping the descriptions short. But I can still feel my heart beating as if it is about to jump out any minute. Different rooms with different themes and multiple nightmare celebrities, basically chased us through the halls of the haunted house. After all it was absolutely worth the time effort we had to put in this trip.
After all I feel ready to get into the next Halloween adventure. The upcoming Halloween party, might not be as frightening as the Haunted House, but this is finally the chance for everybody to dress up themselves. And you never know, who might be hiding around the next corner of the Blarney Stone on Thursday! 
See you there. 
Cheers,

HALLOWEEN CLUB CRAWL REVIEW

Last Saturday was Halloween and nearly everyone went crazy. Actually that’s not surprising; I mean it’s one of the most popular events in North America. You could see many people who were dressed as a Minion. At least just as many wore a Super Mario or Luigi costume. Consequently the costume of my roommate and me perfectly fitted since, as I mentioned in one of my last blog posts, I was dressed as Mario and she was my “brother” Luigi.

For my first real Halloween party in Canada I certainly had big expectations and they were more than fulfilled last Saturday! Actually they were exceeded. Hundreds of people wearing Halloween costumes and went absolutely crazy.

 

After around 10pm the entire Granville Street was closed for cars. So Granville was just opened for all the party people and therefor the street was really crowded. The line-ups in front of the clubs were quite long. That’s why people partied even on the street.

First we had some difficulties at in the beginning but then we started our crazy night at the Harbour Event Center near BC Place. Shortly after we entered the club the first bus left to take us to our second party location. 22719343705_7ab7449cd4_bWe went from party to party with a typical American school bus, which was absolutely amazing. I always wanted to take a bus like that. The atmosphere during the bus ride was incredible since the people turned the bus into a party bus. Probably most of them were already drunk at this time but they didn’t care after all it was Halloween. The bus driver let us off on Granville Street where all the fancy clubs are located.

It was the first time I celebrated Halloween in such a big way and it was a great to be part of it.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday!

I have been writing this post for a while and I have to be sincere I didn´t know what to write about this time, so I just started to read the title again and again… Casual Friday, casual?  And then a lot of things come to mind…

Do you believe in the coincidences? In the destiny? Or in the casual things?

Googling a little bit around this topic it´s crazy all the information and coincidences that you can find in it. Even it exist a classification around coincidences!! Reading more there are more than one history that wow, it´s incredible, almost seem a film.

Here are two of the most interesting I found:

In 1900, King Umberto I of Italy was dining in a restaurant whose owner was born on the same day and city that the monarch and they were both really similar physically. They were married the same day with a woman of the same name. The restaurant owner had opened the establishment on the same day that Umberto I of Italy was crowned king. Everything was such a coincidence that the king invited the owner to an athletic championship with him the next day. Unfortunately that moment never happened. The owner was shot, and in the same instant that they were telling the king about what has happened, the anarchist Bresci shot and killed the King.

Another terrifying coincidence is around the lives of two famous American presidents: Lincoln and Kennedy. Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were appointed Congress in 1847 and 1947 respectively. Lincoln was elected president in 1860, just one hundred years later in 1960 Kennedy was elected president. They measured 1.83 meters and their names were seven letters.  Lincoln’s secretary, named Kennedy, and Kennedy´s secretary named Lincoln, advised them not to go to places where they died. They were both killed on Friday by bullets in their heads, shot from behind and in front of their wives. They both were assassinated by southern. Lincoln´s killer was Andrew Johnson who was born on 1808 and Kennedy´s was Lyndon Johnson and was born in 1908.

And this is the moment of stop! Because Wow. That´s is totally crazy!!!!!!!!!!Oh my god!

I was just trying to make a philosophical post but right now I am kind of scared…what would  happen if the coincidences are not coincidences and the casual is not casual anymore? What would happen if we are just part of something really big that we can´t control?

I just prefer not to think too much, just enjoy the casual or not-casual-but-seem casual circumstances that the life offers!

So read this post and then just forget it! FORGET IT!

Have a super nice Casual Friday!

Cheers,

Irene
