Review: Soccer World Cup – Germany vs. Ghana

Last Saturday we met to watch the Soccer World Cup match Germany against Ghana, the second match of both teams in this world cup. So we all were at 11 am at The Pint, ordered some food and drinks to be ready for an exciting soccer match. While we waited for the kickoff we discussed about the world cup and about our bets for the match, everything was about soccer, which was really fun.

After the kickoff all of us followed the game very curious. It was a very nice atmosphere in The Pint. A lot of Germany-supporters and some support-chants during the game. Even when the match wasn’t that good from Germany. In the end it was 2-2, maybe some of was were a bit disappointed, but now it is up to the third match. We will let you know where we will meet us for this match in the next days!

 

After the match most of us decided to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach or with a bike ride around the Stanley Park. After we rented our bikes we followed the way into the Stanley Park to enjoy the sun and the amazing view when we biked along the Seawall. It is really fun and enjoyable, if you didn’t tried it before, you really should do it while you stay in Vancouver!

 

We hope you enjoyed your weekend and be ready for the upcoming week. Please remember that there won’t be a PuB NiGHT on Wednesday because of the PuB & Club NiGHT on Friday!

Bike Ride through Stanley Park

Let’s explore Stanley Park all together with a amazing bike ride. We will do the Bike Ride through Stanley Park on Saturday the 14th of June. We will meet at 2pm at Denman Street corner West Georgia Street and get our bikes. The bike rental will be about $6 per hour. Please make sure you have enough money with you.

For those of you who don’t know, Stanley Park is Vancouver’s biggest park, located on the edge of Downtown Vancouver. Every year Stanley Park attracts an estimated of eight million visitors every year, who come to check out the beauty Stanley Park has to offer. Also Stanley Park is 10% bigger than the New York Central Park, so pretty big.

The bike ride is about an hour and takes you all around Stanley Park. After we finished the round we can make a stop at one of the amazing beaches over there and enjoy the weather. The Seawall is a 22 km (13.7 miles) path that starts at the Convention Centre on Burrard Inlet (Coal Harbour), then goes around Stanley Park and False Creek, past Granville Island and ends at Kitsilano Beach Park. We will follow the Seawall part that goes around Stanley Park.

As the weather in Vancouver can change at a moment notice, be sure to check out our blog frequently. Should the weather be really bad, we will post a notice on the blog saying if we are cancelling or not. You can also send us a message (604 368 0816) to check if the bike ride is still on!

We hope we will see you all on Saturday for the bike ride.

INTERNeX Canada: News/Fun facts – My top 3 in Vancouver!

So my last weekend in Canada has finally arrived.. Therefore I want to write and share my top 3 things to do in Vancouver!!

#1 – Rent/Ride a bike!
Really the coolest way to see this amazing city is by bike. The last 14 weeks I rode over 1000km through the city of Vancouver! The best way to rent bikes is around Stanley Park (Denman/Robson St.) There are lot’s of renting facilities around this street. Normal prices are between 30-40 dollar for one whole day and 20-30 for half a day. Below you can find some companies that I recommend:

The best thing to do is make a tour in and around Stanley Park. You can take the easy seawall to make a round (12km). If you have more time bike the Lion’s Gate Bridge as well!

Last Friday, my very last day riding my bike to the office, I discovered a flat tire! How peculiar? 😉

#2 – Go by ferry to Granville Island MAP
This spot is one of my favorites! The island is easy-going with lot’s of special food and other things to buy. They have an enormous market with more local products then you can imagine! The best way to get there is with the False Creek Ferries! These small boats are sailing all over False Creek. The oneway fee is between $3-5 dollar.. But for this price you get a great view of the harbor, boats and the Yaletown skyline!

#3 – Visit Gastown and all his pubs!
A awesome place for me during my stay in Canada! Because the office is in the middle of Gastown, it was not that hard for me to discover this place.. I was really surprised by the Irish and British culture influence in this area. Most of the pubs and bars are built in this style. Maybe that’s the reason that I like this place so much!

The places I like and recommend in Gastown are: LampLighter Public House, The Black Frog, The Blarney Stone & The Steamclock.

So that’s it. Hope you like my small list. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Cheers,

Jelle

INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the Week

Last Sunday some of us enjoyed the beautiful weather in Stanley Park. We rented bikes and had an amazing ride around the park. For all of us it was the first time exploring the Seawall, so we stopped for a lot of pictures. With such beautiful views in the background, Oliver tried some cool bike stunts that now make a great picture of the week. This pic captures it all: Vancouver, spring and outdoor activity, a perfect motivation for the coming summer!

Have a nice weekend,

INTERNeX Canada: BiKE ToUR @ Stanley Park

Get ready for our big bike ride at Stanley Park this weekend. We will rent bikes (or bring your own) and spend the afternoon cruising around Stanley Park! It will be a sunny weekend in Vancouver – the right time for some outdoor activities after a long rainy winter.

We can bike the 8km-Stanley Park section of the Seawall right on the edge of the water. Did you know that the Seawall was renewed in 2010/2011? It is now the most popular (and the most beautiful) place to bike and skate in Vancouver. We can also take a look on wildlife and sights inside the park. The Lost Lagoon or the Totem Poles wait to be discovered!

When: Sunday, May 27th, 1 pm
Where: Meeting point is  the intersection West Georgia St/Denman Street in front of the bike shop. We will get our rented bikes and head towards the Park.

See you there!
