My weekend was great! Thanks to you! You made this weekend a weekend I will remember. Everyone survived, except our new friend Bob. Are you curious what we all did in Whistler? Good! Keep reading and you will find out.
It was an early Saturday morning. Time to get up and prepare myself for a fun weekend. We took the bus and drove a beautiful road all the way up to Whistler. Right after check-in it was already time to go to the bungee jump office. We drove with a van into the mountains where we stopped at a bridge. This is it, there is no way back now. We nervously waited on the bridge till it was our turn to jump from it. I got even more nervous when it was my turn to jump. I still remember the instructor saying: “Just look at the treetops and try to catch them”. So I did. Without thinking I jumped and a second later my view went from the treetops to the river underneath me. At that time I realized how high this was. Those were the most terrifying seconds of my life. Then I felt the rope that broke my fall and I felt so relieved and free. I did it! After everybody jumped and saw their pictures we went back to the apartments.
We decided to do a more relaxing thing now, so we decided to go in the hot tub. While the rest of the group was in a minus 32 degrees room to taste some vodka, we were swimming in a 32 degrees hot tub. There have to be some difference. When we went back to the apartments, we made some delicious spaghetti and did some fun games. When the time was ready, we decided to explore Whistler village to check out the clubs. We went to Tommy Africa’s, a small but fun club were we enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor, in the pole or at the bar.
Next day, everybody woke up happy and full of energy. Maxine and Marvin made us some really tasty eggs. After breakfast we went to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre to learn all about these two different cultures. We watched a movie, did the tour and made a bracelet out of wood. When the tour was finished we went to the village to get some lunch. The last few hours in Whistler we played the Scavenger Hunt Game. Besides people proposing strangers, doing a dramatic earthquake scene, dancing the Macarena, earning money as a street musician and doing a breakdance on the street, nothing weird happened. Unfortunately, time was already there to go back to the bus.
I hope you enjoyed the Whistler trip as much as I did. Thanks again for being part of this experience, it wouldn’t be that fun without you. You all get the greetings from Bob as well. There will be no pub night at Wednesday, but I hope to see you all tomorrow at the Halloween party!
