How was your weekend?

The next weekend is over and it was an incredible one. It was our Whistler-weekend and at the same time also my last real weekend in Canada. So two reasons why this weekend had to be awesome! But let me tell you a bit more about it:

IMG_3978Friday in the late afternoon, me and a group of 16 others met at Burrard Station to start our Trip to Whistler. The first surprise: Nobody was too late and even the Bus was in time. What an unbelievable start! 😀 After loading our luggage in the bus, we started our 2 hour journey to Whistler. Arrived in Whistler we checked-in our Lodge and started to prepare for the evening. The first point on our time schedule was having diner, so we ate together. Due to the long day we had, nobody was in the mood to go out. We decided to stay together in one room ,where we had some games and a lot of fun! Around 2 o’clock in the morning the first day was over and everybody went to bed!

Saturday was the only complete day of our stay in Whistler, so I don’t have to mention that it was our activity day. We started our day with having breakfast all together. Afterwards the first group departed. 10 of us went to the Zipline-Office, where they signed in for a 3 hours tour. While the first group was already on their tour the second group, my group, prepared for their first Bungee-Jump. With a shuttle we drove out to the bridge and to be honest by coming nearer to the point of jumping I became nervous and more nervous. A bungee-jump was something,I wanted to do my entire life and know I had this big chance. Unfortunately I was the last of our group so I had to see how the other guys jumped down this bridge and yeah my feelings didn’t become really better. After a few minutes, which felt by the way, like a few hours, it was my turn. I stepped to the edge and waited for the “go” to jump. 5,4,3,2,1 and jump. Without thinking about I jumped down and wow the moment of free fall was amazing. You felt so free, free like an eagle.. Back on the bridge I was still a bit flashed and confused. Did i really jump down a bridge? Yes I did it and it was unbelievable! The third group went out for a hike and enjoyed the beautiful nature surround whistler!
Back in our Lodge, we meet the rest of the group and we told each other about our days and experiences while having diner together. Afterwards it was time to check out the Spar area of our Lodge. Hot-Top and Pool built an amazing combination. Unfortunately this combination was so good that we spent their a lot of time. Back in our apartmens everybody was in a relaxing mode, what had as consequence that we changed our evening planes. Instead of going out, we spent the Saturday in one room partying! It was a very long night!

IMG_4305After a few hours of sleep it was breakfast  and checking out time. We drooped all luggage in one room and went out again to explorer Whistler a last time. Some of us checked out the Squamish Museum, wich was by the way, very cool and I can only recommend a visit. The other part of our group bought some stuff in Whistlers “Shopping area”.  In the afternoon we went back to Vancouver again. This was already the end of our weekend. A weekend, where the time passed too fast. But isn’t that always the case when you enjoy something? I think everybody had an amazing trip and made some good memories! 🙂

Thank you for that!

News / fun facts

So you think you can cross Vancouver off your list as “been there done that”? I have gathered 5 things I am sure you have not done yet and might still be a lot of fun!

1. First up you can go on a tour where you get an insight into Vancouver’s darker side. Murder, prostitution, and the drug trade, it is all a part of the tour. The tour is organized by the Vancouver Police Museum’s “Sins of the City” walking tour.

2. Do you like to sing and show of your skills to people who really appreciate it? Then maybe you should try one of the many Japanese-style karaoke bar’s around Vancouver.

3. With summer knocking at the door it is time to get into that wonderful nature and experience “the real Canada”. One way is to go hike, another one is the Zipline between the mountains at Grouse Mountain. With a top speed of 80 kilometres per hour it is sure to get your adrenaline up.

4. Have you always dreamt of mastering a sword? Then you are definitely in the right place! Learn how to master sword arts such as the rapier, side sword, sword and shield, and long sword at Academie Duello.

5. It is dificult not to fall in love with Sushi while living in Vancouver, but the Japanese food and drink culture has much more to offer. Sample three different types of locally handcrafted sake at Osake on Granville Island.

There you go, a few tips for those of you, who are looking for a different Vancouver experience.
