INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

It was the most amazing weekend for me. First I went out on Friday to the Roxy’s on Saturday I went to the Fan Expo at the convention centre in Vancouver. Finally on Sunday I went ice-skating with INTERNeX and watch the hockey game in the Doolin’s Pub.

Friday was the last night in Vancouver for a friend of mine and to make it unforgettable, we went out and made it a night to remember. Roxy’s is a nice club and every weekend they have a live band playing popular music. We danced the night away.

Saturday my friend and I went to the Fan Expo. The event was a huge success at the convention centre, so many people were in costume and we got to meet actors like Sander from Buffy the vampire slayer and actors from television series True Blood. Furthermore a new show got promoted called “Continuum” which is about a group of fanatical terrorist escaping their planned execution in the year 2077 and vault back in to the year 2012. We got to meet the cast and they all signed our poster.  The Fan Expo was just an amazing experience.

On Sunday I went ICE SKATING this was so “cool” besides being cold we had a lot of fun. We finally got on the ice and experienced how it is to skate and fly on the ice like hockey players or figure skaters. So many people came and we had tons of fun. Playing tag or just skating circles and trying to stay floating on top of the ice. It was all over to soon.  We should do this again real soon.
