What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!

How was your weekend?

Another sunny weekend is behind us, where we had the possibility to explore beautiful Vancouver.

Saturday was a pretty chill day for me. I went downtown and did a bit of window shopping in the afternoon, which is always fun.

Sunday was another marathon in downtown Vancouver. I watched it for a while, and it was quite amusing seeing some of the participants dressed up in weird costumes. The atmosphere was great. Afterwards, I walked along the water by Coal Harbour and enjoyed the view as well as the weather.

By the afternoon, I got ready to go to the trampoline park in New Westminster. We met around 5:30, so we could start jumping by 6. In the beginning all of us were full of energy, enthusiastic and jumping around like little kids. Some of us were even able to pull off some flips. The trampoline park also had a foam pit, which was….interesting, as most of us struggled to get out of it. We also had a few intense matches of dodge ball. After one and a half hours we were exhausted but still hung around for a bit. Overall, it was a fun experience. Thanks to everyone who showed up.

Hope to see you on Wednesday at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, which means the week is almost over and there is only the weekend left. In case you still do not know what to do, here are some ideas to consider.

beach

First off, good news, it’s going to be sunny all weekend. So you should take advantage of the weather, and spend some time outside. You can go to one of the many beaches in Vancouver, for example Kitsilano beach. While you spend some time by the water, you can read, hang out with friends or even have a picnic.

lighthouse

On Sunday, you should join us at the Lighthouse Park for a hike. The park is located in West Vancouver by the shore, so we will be able to enjoy some beautiful views. It is a fairly easy hike, so it is suitable for everyone. Don’t forget to bring snacks and something to drink. More infos on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/240975033416074/

If you still need plans for tonight, and are in the mood for some action, you can go to the lacrosse game between the Vancouver Warriors and the Toronto Rock at the Rogers arena. The game starts at 7 pm. Ticket prices start at $20, and you can purchase them online or at the arena. More infos at: https://vancouverwarriors.com/schedule/game?id=3401425

Have a great weekend and hopefully I’ll see you on Sunday at the hike.

Picnic at the Beach

This weekend is going to be hot. The weather is forecasted up to 25 degrees, so get your summer clothes out and join us for a beautiful day on the beach!

Since the sun will come out we decide to have a picnic on the beach. The idea is kinda the same as our International Dinner, everyone brings some food along and we can have a big picnic party. Of course this time it does not has to be anything typical from your country.

We will meet at 2pm on the Kitsilano beach at the boathouse, from there we will find a nice spot on the beach for our picnic. If you are coming later, you can just give us a call or stroll along the beach and you will find us!
We can also make a stop at one of the five ice-cream shops, one even serves frozen yoghurt, in Kits or for some smoothies.

We hope to see you at the beach

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Hey there,

A new workweek has arrived! That means the weekend is over..
But before we start let’s look back at this wonderful sunny weekend.

We did several things this weekend. Clara and Mercedes went with some of our clients on Saturday to the Khatsahlano Festival, in Kitisiliano.

First we went to Downtown to drink and eat something in Downtown. The weather was so cool, we went to a terrace. About 4 pm we went to the festival by bus. It was crowded, a lot of stands with food, and things to buy!

  • The festival was along the 4th avenue, between Burrard and McDonsald Street
  • Concerts (indie and rock music). We watched two groups: Gold & Youth and Towers and Trees.

We walked visiting the different places, a lot of free things to eat (chocolate, cookies) and some performances like break dance and humor shows. We saw some very funny things: a lot of old women dancing electronic. A man with a horse mask playing the guitar on top of a caravan…
It was a really good festival, everything very clean and well organized, with the Canadian style 🙂

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Another monday, and another started week. I hope your weekend was awesome.

This Sunday, we wanted to hike out. The Grouse Mountain was the chosen place.

We wanted to go so bad, but unfortunately at around 8:00 a.m. started raining cats and dogs, and we had to postpone because we were afraid of a terrible rain during our hiking.

So we decided to go for lunch at  Tampopo, a “all you can eat” sushi restaurant in Denman Street, quite close to English Bay. It was an amazing lunch with wonderful views. The restaurant was located in a 2nd floor and we could see the ocean from there.

The weather changed and it turned into a sunny and wonderful day. So after our lunch, we decided to go to English bay and in our way we stopped to buy ice-creams and some frapuccinos.

It was full of people enjoying the nice weather, and we could talk and lie in the grass. We enjoyed the sun and the company.It was a very nice day.

I should admit i think I won’t be able to understand the weather in Vancouver: It rains during an hour, and suddenly the sky clears up and you can enjoy the beach. It’s amazing, isn’t it ??

Next time, I’ll hike the Grouse mountain whether it’s raining or not, because Van is unpredictable.

Best,

Mercedes
