Experience IT Review – Stanley Park bike ride

Last weekend we went for a Dutch adventure around Stanley Park. It was great seeing all of you again. Thank you for coming!

Stanley Park is one of Vancouver’s icons and probably one of the first things you go to when you get to Vancouver. There are a lot of places you can explore within the park. All of these places are hard to discover in one day if you go by foot. However, this weekend we all became Dutch and went for a bike ride in Stanley Park. This gave us the opportunity to cover more ground and to see more of Stanley Park.

IMG_3796We were really lucky with the weather and it was just the perfect day to do something outside. You could see that a lot of people were having the same idea, as it was really busy on the bike path around Stanley park. We got our bikes at Spokes bike rental and biked from there to the seawall. There we started our journey and biked over the seawall around Stanley Park. Soon we reached our first stop where we had a great view over downtown Vancouver. Here we started a small photoshoot with our bikes. After we took the pictures we continued to Brockton point lighthouse where we got our second stop. Once we got the pictures, we got back onto our bikes and passed several nice viewings such as the Shiwash rock and Third beach. As I am always quite unlucky, it was no surprise that my bike broke and I had to leave all of you from there on. Luckily, you were more lucky and went to the Lost Lagoon. After that you brought your bikes back and went for an ice cream at Dairy Queen to cool off again.

Thank you all for bringing a bit of the Netherlands to Vancouver for us and I hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT!

Smart Saver Vancouver

It is Wednesday, which means… saving money! Let’s take a look at more discounts for students, cause you will be amazed how many student discounts Vancouver has to offer! We will go through a few sections to show where you can find the discounts with your holy student card.

Retail

20170322_144124If you go to Banana Republic for some shopping, you will get a 15% discount on full-priced items. Club Monaco goes a little bit wilder since you get 20% off on full-priced and sale items. And guess what? H&M will give you a 15% discount on your entire in-store purchase! Ready for some new jeans? Go to Levi’s and you will get your new love with 15% off. Besides these stores you also get 10% off at TopShop, 20% at Roots and 15% at J.Crew and Kate Spade.

Restaurants

Every once in a while everybody craves fast-food and when you do, you will feel less guilty when you are able to get it cheaper. For example, if you go to Burger King you receive 10% off the entire meal by showing your student card. For a nice sandwich you can go to Subway and receive a 10% discount. Furthermore you will get the same discount at Dairy Queen, which is great for ice cream or more burgers!

Travel and transportation

Air Canada and StudentUniverse are combined as a team to provide the best student discounts on airfare. So if you have big plans on going to Hawaii when you have vacation here, check out their website for all the information! If you want to ship presents to your family through FedEx it can save you 20% to 30% by showing your student ID.

One more tip for everybody, so also the ones without a student card: have a visit at tourguys.ca  They offer free tours in Vancouver almost every day of the week for free starting in April. But don’t forget to give them a nice tip for their service.

Hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT at TAPshack!
