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.
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.
Thanks to everyone who came and joined us this weekend! See you at the Beaver on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT!
