How was your weekend?

It’s just another manic Monday… Once again, the weekend went by in what feels like a heartbeat. But how can we be sad about that when we had such great weather the past couple of days? As I am writing this, the sun is still (!) shining, so sit back and enjoy the weather while I tell you about my sunny weekend.

On Saturday, Vancouver celebrated Earth Day by organizing a parade and having food trucks and live music ready in the park afterwards. Sounds cool, right?! That’s what we thought too, which is why we planned to go there with some of you. When we arrived, we discovered the parade was actually a march. Lots of people were walking around with self-made signs about climate change and how it affects our planet. It was very inspiring. However, the parade did not last that long, which is why we decided to make use of the good weather and go to the beach. We got ourselves some snacks at the supermarket and spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the sun at English Bay.

On Sunday, my alarm went off at 7am. It was time for me to volunteer at the cat sanctuary again. In other words, petting cats whilst cleaning their litter boxes and providing them with food, water and a cosy place to sleep in. Trust me when I tell you scooping litter boxes isn’t that bad when you are surrounded by a dozen of adorable balls of fur. When I finished my tasks, I took the bus home and enjoyed the weather from my backyard. Since Sundays are meant for relaxing, I ended the day with watching Gilmore Girls on my laptop.

I hope you all enjoyed the weather last weekend! See you all on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT at The Lamplighter!

What to do on the weekend?

Almost weekend!! There are lots of events this weekend in Vancouver!

First of all, some of us will go to the Vancouver Riptides to watch their first Frisbee game of the year, so it will be very busy.

There are also some other events this weekend. For example, tomorrow it is Earth Day. To celebrate this day there will be a number of events around town. Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 11.28.57 AM.pngThe two biggest ones are the Party for the Planet in Surrey and the Earth Day Parade in Vancouver. Party for the Planet is a family friendly event at the Surrey City Hall. It features environmental information booths, activities for children and lots of live entertainment. Around the second half of the afternoon there will be live music for older folks. The Earth Day Parade will start at 1 PM at the corner of Commercial Drive and Grandview Highway, after that it will go north and finishes at Grandview Park, where a small festival will take place until 5 PM.

On Sunday the Vancouver Sun Run will take place and starts at 9 AM. This is the largest 10 km race of Canada and also one of the most beautiful. It will start at the corner of Georgia and Burrard and it goes to Stanley Park, English Bay, Burrard Street Bridge, Cambie Bridge and to BC Place Stadium. The views include the mountains, ocean, beaches, skyscrapers and bridges.

I hope to see all of you this weekend!
