INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

It’s such a beautiful day!

OMG! It isn’t supposed that Vancouver is a raining city? Today the sun is shining more than ever and the rest of the weekend will get better, as we can see at the weather forecast.

Impossible to stay at home, not? Well, start to preparing your shorts and sunglasses because we have a lot of plans for you!

Vancouver International Burlesque Festival

Do you like burlesque? I think Vancouverites love it, judging by the strange customs that the people use to wear during a typical Monday at 14:00 in the middle of Grandville St.

The burlesque, a kind of cabaret or variety show, nowadays, has emerged from the pubs in the suburbs to become a very famous fashion due to celebrities like Dita Von Teese. If you would like to attend it, you can buy the tickets in the following link.

  • When: May 2-4, 2013
  • Where: Depends on the day. Check the website for more info (click on 2013 schedule).

Visit the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG)

If a large number of semi-naked woman are too much for you, here you have a more relaxing plan: visit one of the most important art galleries in Vancouver. The CAG it’s a free space with international recognition, which advocates for news talents and the public access to art. One of the most awesome exhibitions is As It Comes for the Canadian artist Raymond Boisjoly. The title of this exhibition is the title of the one of his pieces too, which appears at the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station as you can see at the picture below.

  • When: Tuesday to Sunday 12 – 6 pm, FREE.
  • Where: 555 Nelson Street, Vancouver, British Columbia MAP.

Take advantage! It’s such a beautiful day!

Kisses,

Clara.

Sleep-less in Seattle

So I just came back from a weekend in Seattle and I had an amazing time! I swiped the plastic quite a bit and wracked myself up a nice little bit of debt but it was totally worth it. The shopping in Seattle is well worth the 2 1/2-3 hour drive because there is so much choice for quite a reasonable price. I bought two pairs of gorgeous shoes, some jeans, shorts, and a bunch of tops and definitely got a great deal. For those of you who don’t own a car and might have some difficulties in trying to arrange all the necessary steps towards taking a road trip to the states I think i might have an option for you. One of  our partner companies, West Trek, offers a Budget Shopping/Sightseeing tour in and around Seattle. You have two options:

1) A Budget Shopping Tour which includes; a) round trip school bus transportation, b) 4-5 hours of shopping (duty free too) and c) a friendly Canadian guide

or…2) A Deluxe Shopping or Sightseeing Tour which includes; a) round trip deluxe bus transportation, b) 4-5hrs of shopping with a discounted coupon book or a guided sightseeing tour with discounted attractions

These trips will be offered generally at least one a month so if you are at all interested or would like to find out more information about the trip itinerary itself, prices, etc please do not hesitate to email me at pr@internexcanada.com
