Yesterday we went to the pretty popular FlyOver Canada to enjoin “The Ultimate Flying Ride” across the most gorgeous places Canada has to offer. It was quite an amazing experience and everyone was excited!
Luckily it wasn’t raining since we met up outside at Canada Place there where you can buy the tickets. During the short time we waited for everyone to arrive we could see a lot of seaplanes landing on the water near Canada Place. Lisa, one of our interns, told us about her awesome experience flying with one of those seaplanes. Accidentally we met another intern with his girlfriend. They also planned to go to the FlyOver Canada and so they summarily decided to join us. We were a group of 8 people that heade down to the entrance of FlyOver Canada. Surprisingly there was no line up and we quickly could enter the room where you get introduced in special personal views of Canada. You got so many different impressions and actually you didn’t even know where to look at but I definitely mean it in a positive way though. I guess everyone who already did the FlyOver Canada knows what I am talking about. After that kind of introduction we finally got seated in the chairs, the floor underneath the chairs was being rolled back and we could see the full size of the giant screen: We were ready to take off.
To make that experience even more realistic the chairs were moving around, a bit of wind and water was blown into our faces, and of course we could also hear the sound of the helicopter. We truly believe that this was just amazing and they really did a great job shooting all these gorgeous locations and putting together such a memorable fly.
This experience can definitively be recommended to those of you who couldn’t join yesterday. Bring a couple of friends, and for sure you won’t get bored.
After that great event we could watch how a huge cruise liner left the harbour. Since it was already quite cold yesterday evening we decided to go for having a hot chocolate/coffee at Tim Hortons at the Pacific Center. We sat there till the security staff asked us to leave considering that they wanted to finish work.
Besides that, a friend and I went to the cinema but not for seeing the new James Bond movie, as I suggested in my last post, but rather for seeing “The intern” which was a pretty funny movie. At the beginning I was a kind of afraid of not understanding what the movie is about or what they are talking about. Therefore I was even more proud of myself that I was able to understand nearly everything. Next time I really have to see “Spectre”, maybe some of you guys would like to join me?
