Guess what we did the other day? Well, our PR Team went on a trip to Whistler!
It was a promotional tour organized by Hostelling International and Moose Travel Network.
We started out meeting at Doolin’s Comfort Inn and took off at 3.30pm.
After about an hour drive we made an intermediate stop at Shannon Falls which has really beautiful scenery. Following our break there, we moved on to the HI-Whistler Hostel close to 2010’s Olympic Village.
At that point we were all pretty hungry, so Remy (one of our tour guides from Moose) fired up the BBQ while the rest of the group was shown the hostel’s facilities.
After eating our hamburgers, hotdogs and salads, everything became quite fast-paced. We quickly got ready because we wanted to catch the bus for a night out at the Village which turned out to be a Pub Crawl! That’s right. We visited several bars and clubs where we could 1 free drink at each one! We even ran into countless bachelors and bachelorettes. The Pub Crawl was crazy fun!
The next morning breakfast was pretty early from 7.45am-8.15am. The reason we forced ourselves out of bed after such a night? That’s because we had a mission. We had to return to Whistler Village. This time, it was in order to go zip-lining. Now, what is that exactly? First, you are strapped into a harness from which you will then hang and ride across a wire hundreds of meters above ground at speeds up to 80km/h! I have to admit that I have a slight fear of heights which made me quite nervous on the first zip line. However, a few seconds after jumping off and realizing I’m not going to die, the experience was incredible!
For anyone out there who’s fighting against a fear of heights as well, this is a great first step to conquering it. I was even a little disappointed that we could only go for 5 times.
Afterwards, we had a drink at the Longhorn Saloon and made our way back home to Vancouver, stopping at the Porteau Cove for an in-between break.
Thank you Moose Travel Network and Hostelling International for this great trip!
