Highlights of the month June

July welcomed us with sunshine and Canada day, it’s going to be a beautiful month! However before we really start July lets see what we did in June and we are going to do in July.

We started June with a White Water Rafting / Camping trip to Chilliwack with the one and only Lee. He picked us op on Saturday afternoon and we drove down to Chilliwack. There we set up our tents and enjoyed the night. The next morning it was time to go rafting and after an amazing time on the water we came back to the camp for lunch and a last game of volleyball.

On the 21th of June we went to the Pint to watch the soccer game Germany against Ghana. We had a nice little brunch before the game started and afterwards most of us decided to enjoy the sun by either going to the beach or for a bike ride around Stanley Park.

We ended the month with a Pub&Club night where we also sadly had to say goodbye to our intern Daniela. We will miss here, but we are sure she will have a blast traveling and wish here all the best for the future.

The first of July will of course be celebrated with joining the parade and watching the fireworks. On the 12th of July we will relax at the Khatsahlano street party with music performances, little markets and food trucks. On the 20th of July we will to for a hike at the Grouse Grind and on the last weekend of July it is time for our monthly overnight trips. This time to Victoria.

As you just heard we have many fun activities planned for you in July, so make sure you check Facebook regular or come to our pub nights to get the newest information about the activities. (ps: our next pub night will be on the beach again!)

We hope you enjoyed our little video and let us know what your favorites were in June and what you would like to do while you are here!

White Water Rafting Review

What an amazing weekend!! We hope you had so much fun as we had. On Saturday the 7th of June was THE day were our awesome rafting trip started. Our crazy tour guide Lee from WestTrek picked us at 2pm with a sweet van on Waterfront station up and we made our way to Chilliwack. On our way we stopped of course to get some snacks and drinks (a lot of drinks ;)) for the campfire that night.

We arrived in Chilliwack around 4pm and after we setting up our tents (which mostly we girls did!!), close to a big camp fire place, we started playing volleyball, which was pretty fun. Of course we started already drinking, so you can imagine how funny the volleyball match was. At around 6pm our dinner was ready. There was a buffet with good food, we enjoyed the food while sitting outside in the sun. After dinner we went straight back to the volleyball court and had a exiting match agains the yellow team (high school kids) which of course we won ;).

After the beach volleyball match it was time to start the campfire. We all gathered around the campfire. We spend the whole night drinking, kind of singing, looking at the stars and sharing crazy stories and watch crazy Alex falling down 🙂

The next morning we woke up at around 8am in the morning for a great breakfast with pancakes, eggs and coffee. After a safety talk, which made everybody scared as hell, it was finally time to go Rafting!!! They brought us to the river in old retro school busses and we went on the river with 3 boats with in total about 25 people. There were lots of crazy rapids and the surrounding was stunning! After rafting for about an hour we stopped and dragged our boats on shore. We hiked up to an amazing waterfall and walked through the waterfall, it was breath taking! When we got back in our boats and on the river the rapids kept getting bigger and faster. Three hours later we got back to camp, but it was not over yet! For the real Die Hards there was the possibility to go back on the river again and experience the biggest rapids. Of course all the INTERNeX candidates were up for that. We went back on the river, it was insane! The river was super wild, awesome!

After we came back to the camp our lunch was already waiting for us. We had a last volleyball match and than we made our way back to Vancouver. We arrived in Vancouver around 4pm. Of course we have all the picture on Flickr.

I hope you guys had so much fun as we had 🙂

 

 

We hope we will see you on Wednesday at our weekly Pub Night @ the Doolin’s.
