What to do on the weekend?

*knock knock* Who is there? Weekend! Yes, that’s right! I am trapped in the office today, because weekend is at the doorstep. But I am always glad when it’s here! And then, the well-known question comes in my mind: What to do on the weekend?

20171228_183415

We made is easy for you to start your weekend a good way. We are going ice-skating at Robson Square. Let’s have some fun with our ice skates on. When ice time is over, it’s time for some line dancing and bull riding. We will heading to the Yale Saloon and be cowboys and –girls for a night.

This weekend is also the Dine Out Vancouver Festival. Hundreds of restaurants have special deals for you. All 3-course menus range in price from $20 to $40 dollars. Check if you restaurant is also participating in this festival on their site.

If you have enough of the cold and you just want to warm up, go crab a hot chocolate at the Hot Chocolate Festival. Also at this festival a lot of restaurants participate. Go in and see what special hot chocolate creations they have for you.

Don’t regret anything you didn’t do. Enjoy your weekend to the fullest and have lots of fun. I hope to see each of you at the Ice Skate Rink tonight!

How was your weekend?

The weekend is over already? I swear it was Monday like 5 seconds ago. Ok new week, let’s do this. But before I am ready for you, let’s look back to the weekend first.

26909292_1591413390947326_105795224_oFriday around weekend o’clock many people showed up at my place for some games. We played zombies, what do you meme, chug and bus driver. Before we realised it was already 11 pm, which means less games and more club. So we moved to Roxy and danced the night away.

Good morning afternoon, time to get up and go to the PNE. There we watched a lot of light sculptures during the Chinese Lantern Festival. We walked around for two hours, ate some food and watched a lot of performances. After the festival, we headed over to the bourbon for more games.

I hope your weekend was a good one too. Tell me all about it next PuB NiGHT at the Blarney Stone. See you there!

Experience IT review- Stanley Park Bike Ride

Yesterday we had an amazing bike ride at Stanley Park. Thank you all for joining!

21017772_10209788487529882_1147835809_o

We met at 2 p.m. at Spokes Bike Rental and once everyone was there we took our bikes and started our bike ride to Stanley Park where we biked along the seawall. Our first stop was at the totem poles where we took an amazing group picture.

After that we went on to the prospect point, which was a big climb with the bike, but eventually when we all arrived, we enjoyed a nice and big ice cream and also the view of the Lions Gate Bridge where we took another group picture with a festival going on in the background.

Once we were done with our ice cream we cycled a bit off road along the seawall where I unfortunately fell off my bike but I got back up and cycled together with the group to Spokes Bike Rental.

I hope you all had a great weekend and hope to see you on PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

It is finally Friday and it only takes a few more hours till we finally can enjoy the weekend. If you don’t have any plans for the weekend yet, then check out this blogpost for some inspiration!

36466811465_3540120658_oOn Sunday the INTERNeX gang is going to explore Stanley Park by bike. By doing this, we can cover more ground, which means that we will be able to see more of Stanley Park. Besides that you will finally experience Vancouver in the most Dutch way!

If you rather do sports, then the KitsFest is the place to be! This is a 3 day sports festival taking place in Kitsilano. You can do yoga, volleyball, water polo, basketball and many other sports. Besides that there is also a DJ playing music throughout the day. The festival starts today and will take place till Sunday.

You can also watch the great baseball team of Vancouver, the Vancouver Canadians. They will have a match against Everett Aquasox at the Nat Bailey Stadium. If you are not able to get a ticket anymore, then you can also watch the game in one of the sports bars in Vancouver.

This weekend is the opening weekend of PNE. The whole weekend you are able to get in for only $1.50 if you wear red or a Canadian maple leaf and arrive between 11 AM and 1 PM. Normally PNE is pretty expensive, so by going this weekend you will save quite some money. There are also shows, vendor markets and live music, so it is definitely worth checking out!

I hope to see you all at the Stanley Park bike ride!

Experience IT review – Vancouver Pride Parade

On Sunday INTERNeX went to the Vancouver Pride parade. Thank you for joining, we had a blast!

We got together at 12pm to ensure a spot along the parade. Unfortunately it was already really crowded, so we didn’t get the best spot in the beginning. Still we were able to enjoy the parade and saw some spectacular acts along the way! Someone even walked on his hands for a few minutes and closed it off with a backflip. It was really good to see everybody so happy and being themselves.

20727902_10155579174907103_5004251810395811518_nThe parade went on way longer then we thought and people in front of us started to leave, so we suddenly had great spots. The festivity lasted about two hours full of joy. After standing and celebrating for so long our stomaches were empty, so we decided to have a nice lunch. Because it was really busy everywhere, they let us wait a while for our food, but it was all worth it in the end since the food was great!

Everybody felt good again, so it was time to party on. We headed to Sunset Beach for the 20664531_10155579174902103_5102332067839628401_nfestival and went over Davie street in between to see what was going on there. After taking a swing on a cloudy swing set we arrived at Sunset Beach, which looked amazing! There were many vendors and two stages. After getting some rainbow paint on our cheeks we decided to go to the stage in the beer garden. It was a blast dancing there with everybody, so it was very unfortunate when we found out the festival was already over at 6pm.

I had a very happy Sunday and I hope you all did too! I hope to see you all next PuB NiGHT since it is mine and Danielle’s last one!

Experience IT Review – Khatsalano fest

On Saturday we went to Khatsalano Streetfest, a 10 block street festival with lots of stuff to do! It was great to experience it with you. Thank you for coming!

First we were amazed by how big it was, since it was held on 4th avenue and they closed 10 blocks of the street off for this festivity. There was enough to look at: bands, food trucks, beer gardens and other vendors. We decided to start at MacDonald, and just walk all the way to Burrard to see what is going on.

We saw people doing all these different games to win amazing prizes so Iris and I, like real Dutchies, decided to get involved in this as well. First we spinned a wheel and got a free keychain. As second we were in the running for free waxing, but unfortunately we didn’t throw the ball in the golden bucket. After that we stood in line to throw Blundstones in a bucket 20 meters further, to win a pair of Blundstones. I came quite close, but didn’t make it.

After these exciting games we strutted a bit more down the streets and felt like we also deserved some food in our tummies. So we ate one of the best ice creams I had so far in Vancouver, with a fresh waffle cone. Of course I couldn’t handle it very well, so after the ice cream I continued with some chocolate stains on my shirt.

Luckily we found the beer gardens quite fast, so we could enjoy some nice refreshers in the sun. Although some people left at that point, I went on till the end of the festivity and made use of the variety of food trucks around dinnertime.

I had a great time with the people who joined  and I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT or at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival!

Victoria Tour Guide: Schedule

On Canada Day we are planning a trip to Victoria, the capital city of BC. With this blogpost we would like to inform you a bit more about the trip.

We will be meeting at 7.30 at Tsawwassen terminal where we will take the ferry to Swartz Bay. We will be taking the early ferry of 8 AM to Victoria, as it takes a while to get to Victoria itself. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for buying your own ferry ticket. From Swartz Bay we will take the bus to Victoria, which takes us about an hour. When we arrive in Victoria, you all have free time to do one of the optional activities or to go to the free music festival. To give you a better overview, we made a schedule which you can see below. The schedule is an estimate, which means that we could also arrive earlier or later in Victoria.

14790187003_c6c962858e_o

Schedule
07.30 AM – meeting at Tsawwassen terminal
08.00 AM – ferry to Swartz Bay
09.30 AM – arrival at Swartz Bay
10.00 AM – bus to Victoria
11.15 AM – arrival in Victoria
11.15 AM – free time

 

We would like to remind you that the fireworks in Victoria start at 10.15 PM and that the last ferry back is at 9 PM. If you would like to see them then it might be a better option to stay the night, like some of us are doing. Others are taking a ferry back around 5 PM to see the fireworks in Vancouver. Otherwise, you would need to take the bus back around 7.30 PM to be able to catch the last ferry to Vancouver.

We hope you are all as excited about the trip as we are. See you on PuB NiGHT!
