We are back from our amazing trip to Whistler. Unfortunately Henrik was sick and not able to join the trip, so we were just a small group of 7 people, but however we had a really great time.
We headed off for our adventure with the bus Saturday, September 27, at 10:30 am and arrived in Whistler round about 1 pm. After a short time of confusion we got the right bus to our Hotel, Coast Backcomb Suites at Whistler. The Hotel was pretty nice, we got two big rooms, each with a kitchen, a balcony, a bedroom and a small living room.
After the check in some of us went out to go horseback riding, which was pretty cool. The horses were well behaved and we saw the Alexander Waterfalls, which was really amazing. Our tour guide was pretty cool and looked like a real cowboy, he told us some really funny stories and even offers us a job as a tour guide, because he always need some.
The rest of the group went through Whistler Village, which is pretty nice with all the small shops, and enjoyed the sun.
In the evening we cooked some spaghetti with tomato sauce. It wasn’t the best dinner we ever had, but it was eatable. Of course it was also time to start drinking some cider and beer. Since it is allowed to drink alcohol even in the hot tubes, we took our bottles with us and enjoyed lazing around in the hot tubes. The hot tubes closed at 10 pm so it was time for us to go out to explore the Night Clubs in Whistler. You can imagine we had a really great night.
Unfortunately we couldn’t avoid a little hangover on Sunday, but after the breakfast with some muffins and waffles we all felt better. We checked out and left our bags at the hotel. During the boys went to Lost Lake just to hang out in the sun, the girls went up to the Whistler Mountain with Whistler Village gondola. Up on the Mountain we hiked to Harmony Lakes, which was really beautiful. We had amazing views over Whistler and the Mountains and totally enjoyed the fresh mountain air. Since the Olympic Winter Games 2010 were placed in Whistler as well, of course we had to take some pictures in front of the Olympic Rings. The bus back to Vancouver picked us up at 4:30. We arrived really tired but happy in Vancouver at 6:30.
I hope you guys enjoyed the trip as much as I did.

Because of Thanksgiving and Halloween there is no overnight trip in October but I hope many of you will join our next overnight trip to Portland in November for some Christmas shopping.
Looking forward to see you at our next Pub Night on Wednesday.
