Smart Saver

It’s here again. It’s time for Smart Saver and your chance to save money without having to do the research on cheap ways to have a fun and exciting time in and around Vancouver.

Ok, so it isn’t actually Monday, September 15th, yet… but keep your eyes peeled for this date. Every month Fortune Sound Club arranges a hip hop karaoke night. This is definitely not the ordinary type of karaoke. Not only will you be able to watch both good and bad karaoke performances, but you’ll of course also have the chance to try out your skills. The crowd is generally very supportive, so don’t be afraid to take on the stage for a performance. A playlist will be made beforehand, so you Just need to sign-up for a performance a couple of days before the event. Practice a bit beforehand and then you can have you’re five minutes of fame. And it won’t cost you a Dollar! For more information click here and here.

If you’re not so much a fan of karaoke, you can of course also do something completely different. How about a trip to Westminster Pier Park? Here you can play volleyball, basketball or just walk around the park and have a look at some public art. It’s all free! You just need to bring your own volleyball and basketball. Perhaps you can join in for a game, or you can bring your friends. In case neither you or your friends have a volleyball or a basketball perhaps you can get one very cheap at craigslist.ca. Click here for more information on Westminster pier Park.

White Water Rafting Review

What an amazing weekend!! We hope you had so much fun as we had. On Saturday the 7th of June was THE day were our awesome rafting trip started. Our crazy tour guide Lee from WestTrek picked us at 2pm with a sweet van on Waterfront station up and we made our way to Chilliwack. On our way we stopped of course to get some snacks and drinks (a lot of drinks ;)) for the campfire that night.

We arrived in Chilliwack around 4pm and after we setting up our tents (which mostly we girls did!!), close to a big camp fire place, we started playing volleyball, which was pretty fun. Of course we started already drinking, so you can imagine how funny the volleyball match was. At around 6pm our dinner was ready. There was a buffet with good food, we enjoyed the food while sitting outside in the sun. After dinner we went straight back to the volleyball court and had a exiting match agains the yellow team (high school kids) which of course we won ;).

After the beach volleyball match it was time to start the campfire. We all gathered around the campfire. We spend the whole night drinking, kind of singing, looking at the stars and sharing crazy stories and watch crazy Alex falling down 🙂

The next morning we woke up at around 8am in the morning for a great breakfast with pancakes, eggs and coffee. After a safety talk, which made everybody scared as hell, it was finally time to go Rafting!!! They brought us to the river in old retro school busses and we went on the river with 3 boats with in total about 25 people. There were lots of crazy rapids and the surrounding was stunning! After rafting for about an hour we stopped and dragged our boats on shore. We hiked up to an amazing waterfall and walked through the waterfall, it was breath taking! When we got back in our boats and on the river the rapids kept getting bigger and faster. Three hours later we got back to camp, but it was not over yet! For the real Die Hards there was the possibility to go back on the river again and experience the biggest rapids. Of course all the INTERNeX candidates were up for that. We went back on the river, it was insane! The river was super wild, awesome!

After we came back to the camp our lunch was already waiting for us. We had a last volleyball match and than we made our way back to Vancouver. We arrived in Vancouver around 4pm. Of course we have all the picture on Flickr.

I hope you guys had so much fun as we had 🙂

 

 

We hope we will see you on Wednesday at our weekly Pub Night @ the Doolin’s.

PuB NiGHT Announcement

It’s Wednesday again and that means it’s time for another great PuB NiGHT. As we are really lucky right now with this amazing weather we decided to have another OUTDOOR PuB NiGHT @ the Sunset beach. We will be there around 4pm (so straight after work) and we hope you will join us at any time you want. We will meet at the same spot as last time where we watched the sunset. 

We will stay at the beach to watch the sunset and we can go afterwards of course in a pub for some beers. The Sunset beach is located in the mouth of False Creek. It is the best if you take the bus number 22 from West Pender corner Seymour or Granville Street and hop off the bus the last stop before the Burrard bridge and than just walk down to the beach. So bring your towel and some food to your work and join us afterwards at the beach.

We will take a volleyball, a Frisbee and some playing cards with us 🙂 

If you can’t find us or have any questions about how to get there, just give as a call or message us: 6043680816

 

We hope we will see you all for this great OUTDOOR PuB NiGHT this Wednesday 🙂

Picnic at the Beach review

On Saturday we had a nice small picnic at the beach. It was a lovely sunny day in Vancouver and the city turned it to a beautiful place with crowded beaches and sports everywhere.

We met at the boathouse in Kitsilano and from there we looked for a nice spot on the beach. Once we found we we unpacked all our blankets and started our tanning session. ATTENTION: do not forget to get yourself some sunscreen! The sun is very strong in Canada. We had crackers, chips, strawberries, bananas and many more for picnic. Even some went for a short swim between our tanning sessions.

After the picnic it was time to do some sport, there was a volleyball tournament going on, but once it was finished we could play some volleyball or Frisbee. The warm weather stayed till late in the afternoon and so we left to beach to get some dinner and came back to the park to eat. We finished our day at the beach at around 8pm.

We hope you all enjoyed the nice weekend and we hope to see you at the pub-beach-night this wednesday. Tomorrow we will give you more information about the place and time!

Enjoy the warm weather!

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
