Since we have many people joining us this weekend, we’re planning more Internex Events, how cool is that? 🙂 Therefore, I want to give you some informations and inspirations on what to do on the weekend!
Starting with our first event, the Richmond Night Market on Friday evening. This market is a seasonal market with lots of asian food trucks, vendors, games and shows. You can expect colourful lights everywhere and lots of exotic food to try, from Chinese food, over Japanese food or even Thai food, there’ll be something for everyone =). If you’re into this event, take the Canada Line until Bridgeport Station and walk 4 minutes to the market. You can meet up with us at 6:15 PM in front of the entrance. I’m so excited, are you? =)
Next up we have a wonderful trip this weekend: Whistler. Whistler is a valley and a municipality north of Vancouver which was a venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics. It’s great to stroll through Whistler Village past the hotels and countless shops, you can also still see the olympic sign from the Games here. There’s lots of things to do in Whistler, e.g. rent a bike and go for a ride along Lost Lake or Green Lake or maybe go for a hike? If you take the gondola up the mountain you have an amazing view over the valley and other mountains next to Whistler. You can expect lots of wildlife up there, from little squirrels to big bears, so be careful and pay attention when you see one ;). If you’re into shopping you should definitely check out Whistler Village since it’s home to cool souvenirs shops and other things. You can also check out the Squamish Lil’ What Cultural Centre which is located on the shared traditional territories of First Nation’s people. Whistler has activities for everybody, so be sure to check it out and don’t miss out!. For me, I’m most excited for the nature and the mountain views since I’m very into nature. What would you like to do most in Whistler? =)
If you’re more of a sportsman and you want to support the local sports clubs here, I would recommend you going to a sports game. On Saturday the 1st of October for example, the Vancouver Whitecaps Football Club is playing against the Austin Football Club. Usually they have tickets until the game starts for around 30$ which is a very good deal for a great soccer game! Let’s go support our favourite city of all time, Vancouver! =)
I have one last recommendation for you. From the 29th of September until the 9th of October there is the Vancouver International Film Festival. Each year, there are some film presentations, talkshows and lots of newcomer movies to enjoy. If you’re interested in the VIFF, go on http://www.viff.org to buy a ticket for your selected movie. There’s very interesting movies for every taste of genre: Horror, Drama, Comedy, Family, Action, Thriller. Maybe you’ll meet one of our INTERNeXer’s working there! What else could you want? =)
We wish you all a great weekend with lots of fun stuff to do, even if you’re not joining us! =)
See you soon!
