How was your weekend?

Unfortunately weekend is over, but let´s have a look on what we did the last few days. On Friday afternoon we enjoyed the good weather by going to Kitsilano beach. It was warm enough to wear swim wear and many people also went into the cold water. In the evening there was an amazing sunset and it was quite cool to watch it on one of the longest days of the year.

On Saturday we booked a trip to the Joffre lakes. Although it was a three hours drive to get there from Vancouver it was definitely worth it. The bus driver told us that the lower Joffre lake is the most boring one but already this lake was very clear and turquoise. However, we decided to hike the steep way up to the Middle Joffre lake. When we saw the blue color sparkling through the woods we knew we arrived. The bus driver was so right, because the Lower Joffre lake was nothing against the Middle one. The light blue water seemed so surreal. After making a short break and taking some pictures, we started to hike to the last aim: the Upper Joffre lake. On our way we came by the Holloway Falls, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in this region. The upper Joffre lake was just as turquoise as the Middle Lake and we decided to stay there for a while. While we ate our cookies some small birds joined us and so we had the idea to take some pictures with them. After that we unfortunately had to get back to our bus, but overall it was an amazing experience, that I can definitely recommend!

On Sunday we went shopping in the Metropolis Mall in Metrotown. It is pretty nice there and we all found something to buy. In the afternoon unfortunately we weren´t able to do our INTERNeX-BBQ at the beach, because the weather forecast predicted rain on Sunday. Instead of it we went to WhiteSpot, which is a typical Canadian burger restaurant to get something to eat there. We all enjoyed the good food! After it we wanted to visit the Jazz festival at the Robson Square, but unfortunately it was already closed. However, we experienced so much this weekend that we had nothing against going home.

 

 

Thanks to those who joined us at the WhiteSpot! I hope to see you at the PubNight on Wednesday!

How was your weekend?

Our Sunny weekend is behind us. Vancouver really treated us well during the past week and I really hope that this great weather continues. On Sunday the INTERNeX gang was enjoying the sun by hiking at Lighthouse Park.

Lighthouse Park is located in West Vancouver about 40min bus drive away from downtown. On Sunday we met at 1pm in front of Burrard station and took the bus 250 to Horseshoe Bay. Around 2pm we arrived at the park and started the hike, which was a pretty easy one. Lighthouse Park has many different trails so there is something for everyone.

We chose to do the Beacon Lane one, which takes you straight to the Lighthouse lookouts. After the lookouts we found our way to a nice spot on the rocks next to the water where we had our snack break. The sun was out and we decided to chill a bit more and just enjoy the beautiful view. After our tanning session we continued our hike. We took a different trail back. I don’t remember the name of it but it went through the forest and took us back to the beginning.img_20190428_153606.jpg

The day was great and relaxing. Thanks for everyone who showed up! See you on Wednesday at Malone’s for our PuB NiGHT.

How was your weekend?

I hope Monday has treated you well. At least the weather has been treating us very well through the whole weekend. Let’s do a little recap of what happened during these sunny days.

This weekend was a pretty chill one for me. On Friday we spent the night chilling with some friends. We made delicious dinner together and started the night of by playing some beer pong. We also checked this one veteran bar called The Legion where you can find pretty cheap drinks (just saying).

On Saturday I headed to White Rock to visit my friend. White Rock is located right next to the US border and it is pretty cool since you can literally see to the States while standing on a beach in Canada. Once again we enjoyed an amazing sunset at the beach. Yes I really am a big fan of sunsets.

Sunday it was time to gather up the INTERNeX gang and head out to play some Laser Tag! We played two rounds all together and I must say I did not expect it to be as sweaty as it was. It really was a work out. Especially in our first round when we had about 30 kids playing with us and running around like crazy. The second round was luckily a bit calmer since we had some adults playing with us. In the second round our gang was also divided into two different groups so we had the chance to compete against each other. Not mentioning who won and who didn’t but my team did play pretty well 😉

Big thanks to everyone who showed up. This week we have a lot of things coming up so make sure to stay tuned!

First things first, PuB NiGHT this Wednesday @ The Two Parrots!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friyay! I bet it is the favourite day of the week for most of us. If you have your whole weekend fully booked already that’s good news for you. If not, come to do something with the INTERNeX gang ☺IMG_20190321_194026.jpg

The weather seems so be nice for the weekend (not sure if it’s trustworthy) so if you have time you might want to go outside and just enjoy the sun. The sunsets here in Vancouver are also amazing and that’s really something worth seeing. Grab a book or go with a friend, take a blanket and some snacks and head to the beach. Here is a picture from English Bay Beach from few weeks back when I went there to enjoy the sunset.44322569234_3272b89b0d_o.jpg

Would you like to include something more fast and furious in your weekend? This Sunday the INTERNeX gang is heading to Planet Lazer to play some Laser Tag. You might want to wear something flexible and comfy since the game can get serious sometimes 😀 Other than that you only need to bring yourself. We will meet at Braid station at 5.30pm. Make sure you are on time but if you can only join later let me know. Hope to see as many of you on Sunday as possible. We will have a great evening for sure!

How was your weekend?

Beloved Monday is here and it is time to talk a little about what went down during the weekend. Ice Hockey, Hot Springs and Seattle; for me it was one the busiest weekends in my life but it was totally worth it!IMG_20190315_190624.jpg

Weekend started off with a Canucks game at Rogers Arena. It was my first ice hockey game here in Vancouver and as I had assumed the atmosphere was very similar to our games in Finland. I was accompanied with Sara and Carolin who I met two weeks back at our orientation. The game was entertaining although we didn’t get to see any good fights (the part I was most excited about). Sadly Canucks lose to New Jersey in the end with penalties but we still had a great time with the girls.

On Saturday I was facing a super long day. We headed to Keyhole Hot Springs with few friends of mine. Day started off with a four-hour car drive including one hour of driving the bumpiest road I’ve ever seen. In case you don’t have a jeep don’t even think of going because the car won’t survive. After the drive it was time for the hike and since none of us had been there before we got lost at first. In the end we managed to find our way to the hot springs and it was time to step into the steaming hot water. After chilling in the ponds for couple hours and making some new friends it was time to head back home. You have to hike back before it gets dark since the trail is pretty challenging already during daytime (also there are bears and other animals in the area). On our way home we decided to stop by for dinner at Whistler, which was pretty much half way. It was my first time in Whistler and by the short time we spent there it seemed like a Winter Wonderland.

Sunday Funday in Seattle! The INTERNeX gang headed to Seattle on Sunday with a tour organized by West Trek. Buss started from Vancouver Downtown at 8 am. It took about an hour to get to the boarder where we had our passport check and then about two hours until we arrived to Seattle. First we had a quick tour with the West Trek guide and after that there was about five hours time to do what ever. The guide listed us the main attractions such as the Space Needle, MoPop Museum, Gum wall and the first Starbucks. We also checked the Seattle Great Wheel which was only 16 dollars and absolutely amazing. All in all St. Patrick’s Day treated us very well and the sun was shining the whole day.20190317_042411_0

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and the amazing weather!

This week’s PuB NiGHT will take place at the Beaver bar @8pm on Wednesday.
