What to do on the weekend?

The weekend is upon us and in case you don’t have any plans yet, here are some suggestions as to what you could do.

First off, the Raptors won the NBA finals yesterday. They are the first Canadian team to do so. To celebrate the historic event, how about you go out with some friends and have a few beers.

This evening you could also visit North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market, where you can find some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. There will be over a 100 vendors, so you have plenty to choose from. The market will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm, and there will be no admission fee. Check it out and enjoy some amazing food.

The INTERNeX gang is heading to Whistler on Saturday morning. On our way we will stop at some sights, and arrive in Whistler in the afternoon. We will stay overnight and won’t leave until Sunday afternoon. Thus leaving us enough time for some awesome activities such as zip lining, bungee jumping, hiking or taking a ride on the Peak2Peak gondola. For everybody who is joining, remember we are meeting on Saturday at 1114 Burnaby St at 8:30 am. It’s going to be an awesome trip.

On Saturday will be the Car Free Day in West End from 12 pm to 7 pm. You will be able to find community booths, food trucks, live entertainment and more. The event will be free and is being held on Denman Street between Robson and Davie Street. The same event will be happening on Sunday, but in bigger and in a different location. It will be on Main Street between Broadway and 30th. In general, I would advise to take cash to street fests as some booths and food trucks don’t take credit cards.

Just a little reminder, Sunday is Father’s day in Canada. So call your dad and tell him you love him and how important he is to you.

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the weather!

How was your weekend?

The weekend is already behind us, so it’s time to take a look at what happened this weekend. 

It was my first week in Canada and therefore me and my fellow students Barbara and Franzi missed the Grouse Grind Hike last weekend. That’s why we decided to do that on Saturday. Jasmin and Megan have already told us that the hike would be difficult, but to be honest, we did not believe them. Well, we’ve been taught a better lesson. The trail was much harder than we expected. But we finished the hike in 1 hour and 15 minutes, which is not too bad I think.

The next day was more relaxing. On Sunday we went to the Queen Elizabeth Park for some Disc Golf. There is a prepared trail for the game and the main goal is to throw the discs in the baskets. We built teams and then the game started. It was a lot of fun, even when the discs not always flew in the right direction. And sometimes we needed a lot of tries to get them into the baskets. But we had a good time though. 62551251_2245194065792281_6647863583201820672_n

After we finished the game we decided to join the Italian Day 2019, which took place on Commercial Drive. There were a lot of food vendors with every kind of specialities you can imagine. Some of us got Italian food like pasta and pizza, but there were also a lot of merchants who sold Chinese, Greek or even Thai food. It was so tasty! Furthermore the Festival had live bands and other entertaining programs. And as you can see on the picture, there were thousands of people. Overall, it was a cool way to explore a festival like this in Canada. 62261001_350475435656712_7289749731239002112_n-e1560202266383.jpg

The weekend is ahead of us and in case you don’t have any plans yet, here are some suggestions, as to what you can do.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast for tomorrow isn’t looking too good. Since you might not want to be outside, how about you go to the movie theater. The current movies being played, will take you back to your childhood. For example, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, where Vancouver native Ryan Reynolds lends his voice to Pikachu. Or the Disney classic Aladdin, where you will see Will Smith as the genie. If you have not seen it yet, you could check out the record breaking, star packed movie Avengers: Endgame.

On Sunday the weather is suppose to get better. Giving you the opportunity for example to go on a hike at Lighthouse Park or at any other of the many hiking trails in and around Vancouver. Another lovely way to enjoy sunny weather in Vancouver, is by relaxing on one of Vancouver’s beaches.

What to do on the weekend?

It might not be the best weather today, but the weekend is starting today, so at least some good news, right?! And it gets even better, because it’s going to be a long weekend. Here are some ideas, as to what you could do this weekend.

Monday is Victoria Day, which celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria. Who is Queen Victoria you might ask? She was the Queen of England and head of the British Empire when Canada became an independent country.

On Saturday, we are going to go bike riding in Stanley Park. We will meet at 12 pm at Yes Cycle at 687 Denman St. The first hour for the rental of the bikes will be $8 and the second one $7. So join us and explore Stanley Park.

For all of you who enjoy the Yale, I have an interesting tip for you. This weekend, from the 17 to 20 May is the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair in Surrey. It is one of North’s Americas longest running Rodeos, with additional entertainment and food. Tickets are $10 and up.

market

On Saturday and Sunday is the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The event features an exhibition and a vendor fair with hundreds of creators from around the world. There will also be readings, panels and workshops. The festival will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping and want to find some unique things, it might be worth checking out the Eastside Flea Market on Saturday or Sunday. This is not your average flea market. You will be able to find vintage clothing, quality handcrafted items, jewellery, natural locally-made body care, art, vinyl records, food and many more interesting items. There will be over 50 vendors, so there will be plenty to see. Admission is $3.

Have a wonderful weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!
