How was your weekend?

The Thanksgiving weekend is over. Four days of relaxing, eating and spending time with family and friends! Unfortunately the time runs so fast. Now it’s Tuesday and the only thing we can do, is having a review of the things we did:

IMG_2823 copy
My weekend started Friday in the evening. After finishing work, we had a Thanksgiving Potluck in the INTERNeX Office. Everyone prepared something for the evening and so we had a mix of different food out of different countries in there. It was pretty cool. We listened to music, played some karaoke, talked about a lot of different things and enjoyed the time together. Afterwards some of us decided to go to the Metropole Pub, where we also had some good hours. This is how the Friday came to an end!

The Saturday morning was a tensely morning. Due to the long night, I was very tired but I promised my roommate to go on a hike. So we took the bus to Grouse Mountain and started the hike. It was exhausting and not as easy as I hoped! The moment we arrived at the top was awesome. The beautiful view was the reward for the strenuous hike. We were lucky. Based on the good weather conditions on Saturday, we were able to see Downtown, the Stanley Park and a lot of more places in Vancouver. Really, you should go to the top of Grouse Mountain. It’s terrific!

The Sunday was about relaxing and getting some rest. In the evening I went out to meet some friends at the Pint. There was a “Oktoberfest evening”. It’s a german topic, so we decided to check it out. The evening in common, was pretty cool, but not really what we expected. However we had a lot of fun! 😀

Special for this weekend was the day-off on Monday. It was time for me to have a look at the Vancouver Aquarium. It was one point on my bucketlist. It was really likely and I can recommend it to everyone who is interested in Sealife.

This was my weekend! Hope you had a great weekend too and maybe we will see us tomorrow at the Mahony & Sons for our next Pub-Night 🙂

How was your weekend?

Mond… uh, Tuesday again. That means weekend is over and back to normal life. We could enjoy one extra day off because of thanksgiving. A day I spent well. If you are curious about what I did this weekend, keep reading and you will find out.

We celebrated Thanksgiving a little earlier than the rest of Canada. On Friday we went to White Spot to have diner together. For me a thanksgiving diner is not complete without turkey, so turkey it was. After we finished our meals, we took the bus to Granville to continue the night in the Yale Saloon. We learned how to line dance and we rode a bull. Yale saloon is a fun place where I will definitely go back again.

This weekend I also did the Grouse Grind. Man, what a lot of stairs! It took us 1 hour and 8 minutes to get to the top. We enjoyed some food with a nice view. When we finished our food we went to the bears and saw the Lumberjack show. Afterwards we ate something at the Warehouse and we closed the day in the Bourbon.

On thanksgiving we rented a boat on Granville Island. We drove past the Lighthouse Park and Bowen Island all the way to Anvil Island. We saw a lot of seals laying on the rocks. Despite driving a boat was harder than I thought, it was a very relaxing day. I hope you all had a weekend as fun as mine and I see you at PuB NiGHT tomorrow!

Tonight we are going to the White spot to have a thanksgiving turkey diner. We hope to see everybody there to have a nice real thanksgiving experience while you’re in Canada. Afterwards we will go out all together.

Saturday is a good day to visit the look out tower. Tickets cost $17,50 (or $12,50 for students). But because it’s thanksgiving weekend, we want to thanks giving some tickets away for free. The only thing you have to do is sending a video with your best turkey impression and send it to us. The ones with the best impression gets their tickets for free! Winners will be announced tonight. Not a fan of heights? You can also go to the Vancouver Wild Salmon Caravan 2017 Parade this Saturday.

On thanksgiving Monday, you maybe want to visit Granville Island. A Granville island turkey trot is happening this day. This is a run for kids with all kind of side activities on Granville Island. Or go to the Vancouver Aquarium to come nose to snout with Steller Sea Lions.

Review: Thanksgiving dinner

Yesterday we went to the pub the Irish Heather for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. We meet up inside the pub where we could take shelter from the pouring rain outside… Finally the rain came to Vancouver and the city lived up to its reputation as Raincouver. But the rain definitely didn’t take the good mood away from the crowd gathering inside the Irish Heather. Before getting seated we had the chance to have a little chat until the chef rang the bell and the dinner was served. Everybody was seated at one long table, which made it possible to have a chat with people you never met before.

The dinner was really great! It included mashed potatoes, and a pie stuffed with turkey and other kinds of nice fillings. And on top we also got beers specifically selected for the turkey dinner. Really nice to get some nice food in good company. It was good to hear that you guys are interested in the Portland trip. Remember that you still have a chance to sign up for this awesome trip. Just visit the INTERNeX office to sign up and pay in cash for the trip… we’re open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm. Also remember that we’re warming up to Halloween with our costume shopping next Saturday. Look for more information here. And to finish off the month of October we’re dressing up in our costumes for a Halloween party on Friday, October 31st. Nobody really voted for a preferred place but it’s our feeling that you’re more into the cheaper alternative… for sure this will be great too! We will find a place to go.

You can see a few more pictures from the Thanksgiving dinner here.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
