INTERNeX Canada: Whytecliff park review

Hello there!!

Last Sunday we went to the great Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver!

The bus took us until Horseshoe Bay and there we walked a little bit until we arrived there! We weren´t sure of the trail to follow, but our super instinct leaded us to the correct place!

All the area was just spectacular, there weren´t a lot of houses but the few there were, were simply amazing! We were joking about meeting our future husband/wife there or try to get a house family in that area! Yeah definitely It wouldn´t be hard to look throw the window and see the sea, the park, the islet…yeah could be worse!

We were 7 people because one of our candidates called Torben is never able to be on time so he almost arrived when we were going to come back! It was so funny to call him and he was replying “I am in the bus to go there” but he never arrived! Ay danish danish you are a disaster!!!

The park was really nice with the beach, the islet and it was so sunny! It was really idyllic!

We came up to the top on the islet and the views from there were just beyond description! Just the sun, fresh air, the sea and good company…Can´t ask for more!!

I just can´t stop thinking about how beautiful Vancouver is! You just need to take a bus and you appear in such an incredible park!

Do you want to check the pictures out? Just have a look in our flickr page!

We are open to organize some different plans wherever you want so just let us know what you want to do and we will try to do it together!

Let´s enjoy Vancouver!

Cheers,

Irene

Picnic Locations and Recipe

With so many restaurants around town, it can get expensive always going out for lunch and dinner. This weekend, why not go out for a picnic with a friend or loved one? Take advantage of the beautiful weather and visit one of Vancouver’s many picnic sites.

Stanley park is a beautiful oasis, surrounded by plenty of trees and nature. It also has many beaches nearby to splash around in, or, you can simply enjoy the sounds of crashing waves. In west Vancouver lies Whytecliff park, where the coastal scenery is beautiful.

Buntzen Lake is perfect for an outing with a group of friends. There’s tons of grass and tables available for your food. Bring a few fishing rods with you, ’cause you never know what you’ll catch! If you’re looking to put your hiking shoes on, Stawamus Chief is a great way to work up your appetite. Also known as “The Chief”, this area is north of Squamish. To get to the top you must hike 1 and a half hours – but it’s well worth it! The views of Howe Sound, the Squamish Valley and the Garibaldi Highlands are just amazing!

No picnic is complete without potato salad! Here’s my very own recipe for you guys to try out – it’s delicious!

Potato Salad

  • 8-10 red potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/3 celery stalk, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • Fresh dill ( I use about 3 tbsps)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place your eggs in a pot of water and boil for about 10 minutes. Let them cool, then cut into chunks.
  2. Place the potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 12 minutes, or until they slide off of a fork when you pierce them. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl to cool.
  3. Chop up your celery, onions, green pepper and red pepper into small pieces. Cut your potatoes into chunks as well after they have cooled.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, eggs, vegetables and dill together.  Pour over the potatoes, and gently toss to coat. Chill at least 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving.

That’s it! Hope try out this recipe and enjoy one of the picnic locations! If you don’t try the potato salad, there will be a ton of it at the INTERNeX BBQ KICK-OFF (hint hint).

Cheers!
