What to do on the weekend

Sun is out and it is almost weekend! I hope you are excited as we are, since it is Canada Day weekend. That means there is a lot to do, especially since the weather forecast is looking great! Since there are a lot of places to go to on Canada day, it can be hard to choose.

If you have no clue yet, it is always easy and super fun to join our trip to Victoria on July 1st. We will meet at Tsawwassen ferry terminal at 8.30 am and from there we will take the ferry to Swartz Bay at 9 am. You can purchase your ferry ticket at the terminal. From Swartz Bay we will use public transport to get to Victoria. There will be free concerts starting at 12 pm at the inner harbour of Victoria and there is a lot to see in general. You can see all the details here.

When you decide to stay in Vancouver, a great place to go is Canada Place. The daytime SONY DSCfestival on Saturday will be held from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm and on Sunday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Highlights are live performances, citizenship ceremony welcoming 150 new Canadians, the North Point Lounge serving beer and wine and on Sunday you can enjoy a nice pancake breakfast. But the best of it all must be the fireworks, which start 10.30 pm on Saturday.

If you rather escape the big crowds on Canada day, it can be nice to do some hikes this weekend. The famous Grouse Grind is open now and it will be a great challenge to complete during your stay here. You will find easier hikes in Deep Cove and Lynn Canyon, which will give you great scenery. Besides that the weekend is also there to relax a little bit, and therefore it could be nice to find some peace on one of the beaches of Vancouver. We just uploaded our new episode of the INTERNeX Explorer, where we show you Vancouver’s most famous beaches, so that might be worth checking out!

We wish you a happy (and for some of you long) weekend with a lot of sunshine, red and white shirts, and we hope to see you all in Victoria tomorrow!

Victoria – Trip

A new month means another overnight stay. Since the sun is out and the flowers are blossomed it is time to visit the capital of BC, Victoria.

We will leave for Victoria on Saturday 26th of July at 7am from Waterfront and will take the public transport to the ferry terminal in Tsawwassern. From there we will hop on the ferry and continue or travel to Victoria. In Victoria we will firstly check-inn our hostel from where we than well explore Victoria.

Victoria is the provincial capital of BC and second largest city after Vancouver. Victoria is located on Vancouver Island which is rated as the top island in the Continental US and Canada and is voted as one of the top ten islands in the world in 2012 by the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. Victoria is a combination of heritage architecture, colourful gardens and many outdoor activities as well as culinary experiences and a vibrant art and culture scene.

We will end our night with some drinks in one of Tim’s recommended pubs. The next morning we will have some more time to explore Victoria and who wants can join one of the many outdoor activities, such as kayaking, sup or biking. We will start or return in the late afternoon and will be back in Vancouver around 9-ish.

This fun trip will be exclusive for INTERNeX and will cost you just $90, which includes the accommodation and the ferry. This means that the cost for the public transportation in Vancouver and Victoria is not included, however we hope you understand that you can use your monthly pass for this or a zone 1 ticket since it is in the weekend. The bus in Victoria from the ferry terminal to the accommodation will be $2.50 each way, so please make sure you have this in coins.

We hope many of you will join us for this fun trip to the beautiful Victoria. If you have any further question, do not hesitate to ask us!!

INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the week

This week we have a special picture for this episode of picture of the week. Paw is doing the eagles ad raptors project in the Delta area and has sent us an amazing picture of an eagle. He saw the eagle on his first day in Canada/Tsawwassen. He arrived at his home stay and the man of the house asked him if he would like to drive around in het area so that he can see how beautiful it is. They saw the eagle from a distance and Paw asked if they could get closer to the eagle. They came closer and it seemed like the eagle didn’t care, that they were parked so close under the eagle. I made some sounds like when they are screaming, it reacted a little but it didn’t flew away.

Paw took the shot close to Bounddary Bay and the eagle is sitting in a top of a phone pole.

Paw thank you so much for sending in your picture of the week.

Cheers,

Petra
