INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Our weekend was pretty amazing! I don’t know you guys, but we spent a very nice evening in Stanley Park the last Saturday.

As you maybe know, this weekend was the Stanley Park 125th Anniversary. So we decided to go there to take a look. So many activities were organized in the park! Fortunately, the weather was amazing and we could enjoy the beautiful park more than ever.

I went there so many times but I have to say that it was definitely the better one. The entire place was full of people and you could find interesting things to visit everywhere!

The first thing that we saw was the Vintage Car Display just next to Lost Lagoon.  I’ve never been interested in cars, but here in Vancouver I’ve become a fan. There are so many beautiful vintage cars! I’m so jealous about the people who can afford that.

Then we visited the Rose Garden, where we could see a group of children making a Shakespeare show. Then we almost made a walk tour (there were like three different tours at the same time), but finally we decided to go to Beaver Lake.

It’s such a beautiful place. It’s a little bit hidden; so many people usually skip it. But definitely is a must-to-go inside Stanley Park. It’s completely full of vegetation, and surrounded by trees.

Talking about beavers, we continued our route through the park and we found a place with many stuffed animals, in the ecological center. We saw an enormous stuffed beaver called Rob. The guide told us that it was one of the biggest beavers found in Canada. I’m still trying to decide if it was scared o terribly funny.

And that’s was the end of the cultural part of the day. A music festival was organized in Second Beach, so we went there to have fun. It was the best part for me. We could see some people playing Giant Jenga (if you are a Big Bang Theory fan, you must to know about what I’m talking). After enjoy a couple of concerts and eat some food, we decided to go to buy an ice cream and go back home.

And we have some amazing ideas for the upcoming events, so stay tuned! And of course if you want to make a suggestion about what we can do together, leave us a comment below!

Cheers!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend

There’s A LOT happening in Vancouver and Toronto this weekend and the weather is going to be absolutely spectacular! Don’t know what to do yet with the hot days ahead? Don’t worry, here are some great tips for you and your friends:

VANCOUVER

Volleyball on the beach

There are so many beautiful beaches in and around Vancouver. Why not buy a cheap volleyball at the Dollar Store and head to the beach in Kitsilano or near Stanley Park? This is a great activity to do with a big group of friends and you can even buy a volleyball net for really cheap as well if you wanted it to be more like the real thing.

Outdoor swimming pool @ Second Beach

The pool at Second Beach in Stanley Park gives everyone the great opportunity to cool down after a long day spent in the hot sun; unfortunately the ocean is just a little TOO chilly to jump in . The outdoor pool is heated, 5ft deep and 50m long. For the hours of operations click here for more information.

It is very hard to pick only one picture, since there are so many great places in Vancouver. But I decided to use this beautiful picture of Second beach in  Stanley Park. Last summer I went there very often!

It is very easy to choose my favorite Leisure activity, namely snowboarding. Last weekend I went to Grouse Mountain, the weekend before I went to Whistler, and upcoming weekend I will go to Lake Louise! It really enjoy it that I can go snowboarding every weekend! In my country, Holland, are not mountains at all! So this is paradise for me!

How was your weekend?

Hi everyone,

It was a beautiful weekend in Vancouver, the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the trees are yellow, orange, and red! It was a great weekend to go and enjoy the fall in the city of Vancouver!

On Saturday I went to Stanley Park, English Bay, and Second Beach. I saw many racoons in Stanley Park.


On Sunday I went to Vanier Park, the view from this park is great! you can see Stanley park, and the beautiful skyline of Vancouver Downtown.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, but very soon the winter will start, and I cannot wait! In Vancouver are many possibilities to go snowboarding! For example Grouse Mountain, Seymour Mountain, and Cypress Mountain!

How was your weekend? let us know! by sending an e-mail to pr@internexcanada.com! The writer of the best story wins a price, and the story will be posted in the ‘How was your weekend’ blog!

Cheers, Lydia
