INTERNeX Canada: Smart Save Vancouver

Ok, all the people know, Vancouver is an expensive city. But with our “Smart Saver” guide, you can take notes about our little tips to keep your budget safe. Today, cheap Tuesdays!

Sometimes is really hard to find good deals in our dear Vancouver. Cheap and clean at the same time… is not an easy issue… for the common people. Not for us.

One trick is go to eat or drink something in the less busy days during the week. Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays are usually days without a lot of movement in the pubs and restaurants, so they try to attract customers with special deals. Today is the turn of Tuesdays!

 – The Backstage Lounge: $1.59 draft beer. This place is pretty far away, in Granville Island. But is a place that you have to know, I recommend to take a taxi boat. It’s around $5 a trip to Yaletown – Granville Island.

WHERE: 1585 Johnston Street MAP

 – The Moose: 25 c chicken wings! I’ve never been in that place, but I heard that the wings are amazing. If you decide to go, tell us about your experience!

WHERE: 724 Nelson St MAP

– The Metropole: $2 beer $2 tacos. Well, I have to say that I didn’t try the tacos but they look very good. And the beer… is cheap but a quite small (what did you expect?) and it is served in a plastic cup (sacrilege!).

WHERE: 320 Abbott Street MAP

I hope you enjoy my advice…

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Last weekend Mercedes and I went to Whistler, an amazing ski resort near to Vancouver, where the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games took place. We passed two incredible days enjoying the authentic taste of the Canadian nature.  I already knew that Canada had incredible woods, but, believe me, you need to go there to see it by yourself.

First, we stopped in the Shannon Falls (at Shannon Falls Provincial Park)to see the third highest falls in the province of BC. The place, as you can see in the photos, is very beautiful. There was a lot of families having a picnic day and playing sports.

Then, we arrived at the HI-Hotel. We had a BBQ during de sundown with enormous burgers (really, the best hamburger I never tasted), Canadians beers, and a great company.

Afterwards, we went to Moe Joe’s, one of the most famous clubs in the village. There was a pool table and a dance floor with DJs. Mercedes and I spent the night dancing and jumping with the other people.

But the next morning, we didn’t have time for sleep, because we had to take a bus to do trekking. Do you know something about trekking? Well, we didn’t. Somebody told us something about to be hanging from a cord. Ouch… I was a little scared. All my life I have been afraid of heights. Mercedes was very happy; she is braver than me. But, believe, was one of the best things I’ve never done! Hanging so high, gliding so fast, among the enormous trees, with the beautiful forest under your feet…you can feel like flying!

 

Finally, we went to the village to eat something and take the bus. We were so tired but very happy. In Vancouver, we came back to our houses with the feeling that we were we were in love with Canada more than ever.

Thanks to the organizers to invite us! If you want to go to Whistler, please contact with our PR Team!

 

Cheers,

Clara.
