Review: Trip to Deep Cove

On Sunday it was time for our trip to Deep Cove, one of the nicest places around Vancouver. Unfortunately we were not lucky with the weather, it was a really cloudy and rainy Sunday.  But in hope that the weather will change later we decided to make us on the way to Deep Cove by bus. After the 45 minutes bus drive we arrived at Deep Cove but the weather did not change but that was no reason for us to do not enjoy this Sunday at Deep Cove.

 

First we went to a small, cozy cafe where we all had some coffee, muffins and of course doughnuts. Already before we went to Deep Cove a lot of people told us, that we should try the doughnuts there, they were right. When you go to Deep Cove, you definitely should try them as well! We used this “coffee time” to talk about a lot of different things, like our next plans, what to do on a rainy day in Vancouver and gave each other some tips and helps.  It was really nice in this cafe, so we stayed a really long time in this cafe. Later we walked along the coast of Deep Cove, it was still rainy but still nice to see this nice place. We definitely will do this trip again with sun and some kayaking or paddling! Afterwards we took the bus back to Downtown, most of us used the rest of the day for some shopping or even other activities in Vancouver.

 

Hope you all had a nice weekend and a great start in this sunny week. See you at the upcoming events!

Trip to Deep Cove

After this great weekend and the great Canada Day we are looking forward to have fun at the next weekend. Unfortunately we have to change our plans for the upcoming  weekend! Instead of playing paintball in North Vancouver we will drive to Deep Cove for having some fun together.

We will meet us on Sunday, 6th of July, at the bus stop at Pender Street / Seymour Street at 9:15 am to take the bus to Deep Cove. Please make sure, that you will be there in time because the bus departures just a few minutes later. It is weekend so you can drive with a zone 1 ticket, the bus drive takes about 45 minutes to arrive at Deep Cove. (bus schedule including map)

Deep Cove is the most famous place around Vancouver to kayak. In a circle of mountain you will appreciate the unique landscape. So we will use the time at Deep Cove for kayaking (about $40 – $50), stand up paddling (about $20) or maybe something else. Afterwards we will have lunch together and go for a short hike which is just about 30 minutes but hopefully with some great views and lots of fun.

Please note! – If you are under 19 and you want to rent a kayak or something else, please tell us before via Facebook, Mail etc. because you will need someone who signs for you! 

So let’s cross the fingers that the weather will be nice on Sunday so we will have lots of fun together! We will be happy to see you there!!!

PuB NiGHT Review

What a great “Pub NiGHT”! We decided to chance the PuB NiGHT from a Pub to outside to enjoy the beautiful weather here in Vancouver. We went to the Sunset beach which is located in the mouth of False Creek. We met around 5pm and found a nice spot next to the water. Some of us played a lot of Volleyball and also Football and Soccer and the other just relaxed at the beach. After a while we changed the spot so we had a better view to watch the amazing sunset there and we were also lucky enough to see a sea otter who eat a fish in the water.

After the beautiful sunset we went out in a PuB called Marine Bar & Grill where we had some drinks and ended the night there.

If you want to see more pictures, please click here.

 

We hope you enjoined the “PuB NiGHT” at the beach as we did 🙂 

 

PS: the next PuB NiGHT will be on Tuesday the 6th of May @ the Metropole

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Hello guys,

Another work weeks begins today! So let’s discuss this amazing and sunny weekend! On Saturday we went together to the Celebration of Light at English Bay. This is one of the biggest firework festivals in America!

 

First we met at the Starbucks. We had some cool frappuccino’s and other drinks.. After that we went down to the beach. It was early, so there was not a big crowd yet! We found a great spot in the middle of the beach.

Because we had to wait a few hours there was enough time to buy some food, and enjoy the sun! There were already a lot of people, but it was nice and friendly.

Around 8 pm the sun was getting lower and lower.. As you can see on the picture a big boat pumped water up in the air! After 9 the sun was gone. The skies were pretty clear, great weather for a big firework show!

 

At 10 pm the show started. This was the first night of the event! It’s really worth the wait when you see the show. I never saw so much fireworks before. And there will be 2 more of these great nights! 

  • Wednesday July 31 10:00 pm (host: Canada)
  • Saturday August 3 10:00 pm (host: Thailand)

So there you go! What do you think? Hope your weekend was awesome as well!
Enjoy your Monday today!

Cheers,

Jelle
