INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend!

Middle of August and we have to make the most of the summer and Vancouver !

If you don’t know what to do during the weekend here I give you some ideas.

Big Bus Route Map

On Saturday, we  go to the Big Bus Tour around Vancouver (Remember that the 3 winners of the “Best Rockies Trip picture” win a 2 day pass for free).

This hop-on, hop-off bus offers you the opportunity to go all over the wonderful and most important places in Vancouver and the best part of it is that you can hop on, hop off as often as you want to take pictures, to enjoy the views or just simply to drink a coffee.

Meeting point:  Gastown Big Bus Welcome. Stop #1  (On Water Street just 20 steps from the Steam Clock )

When:  Saturday 17th August, at 1.30 p.m.

Price: Student pass for 1 day: $37. Student pass for 2 days: $42

For those who prefer a frenetic journey, I have another idea, but this one crazier. The annual Zombie Walk is here. This walk has going for years, and each one is getting bigger and bigger.

Please, do not vandalize anything and obey the police. That’s very important !

If you want to survive to the Zombie Walk, check it out this map, which will tell you where to go to get the supplies necessary to battle the brain eating zombies.

Survival Map Downtown

Date: August 17, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (assemble around 3 p.m.)

Where: Starts at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the walking dead then proceed to roam the streets of downtown. The zombie infestation travels up Robson towards Denman Street. It continues to English Bay and ends at the laughing men statues.

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Fun Facts about Vancouver

Today, Stereotypes map of Vancouver! I found this map while I was looking for information about living in Vancouver. Maybe at the first moment, in front of your computer, in the other part of the world… this map can not seem very useful.

But after a few weeks… all makes sense. It’s very funny to see it after discover Vancouver. Of course it is only a joke; you don’t have to take it word by word. There are others wonderful things, which not appear in the map like monuments or parks. However, I’m totally agree with some descriptions:

  • “Hipster central”: The Mount Pleasant, stretching from Cambie Street to Clark Drive. A lot of hipsters over there but there are wonderful houses and a lot of shops too… it isn’t Downtown but is a neighborhood with a lot of things to do.
  • “Old European/ Asian/ Philippines”: It was funny, because I live right here. With a Philippines old woman. I have to say that is a beautiful residential area; each house has its own garden and it’s very quiet.
  • “Hoteland”in Downtown: It’s an obvious stereotype, but is the best zone for live the first days while you are looking for a house.

And you, what do you think about the stereotype map? It’s true?

Kisses,

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

My weekend was a lot of fun; I had a lazy Saturday with movies and going out. On Sunday Rasmus had his birthday and we all celebrated it in Stanley Park. We had sunny weather, which made a stroll trough the park really nice. We went to beaver lake and had a really nice picnic at third beach. After that we walked to the English bay and to the lost lagoon, which is a really beautiful lake. ( see pictures below)

 

 

I really enjoy my weekend and hope that we get such a nice weather next week.

 

Cheers,

Petra
