Week Thirteen: Baby, You Can Drive My Car

I have a confession to make. Despite watching Top Gear on a semi-regular basis, I know nothing about cars. So little in fact that 90% of the time I probably couldn’t tell you what model they’ve reviewed once the closing credits have ended. As I suspect many others do, I watch the show purely for […]

Week Twelve: Gotta Geocache ‘Em All

This week, I decided to try my hand at geocaching, an activity that I was first introduced to by my in-laws, who are keen proponents of the sport. The aim of geocaching is to find caches, which are hidden in locations all over the world, and at least one in space. Caches are typically waterproof […]

Week Eleven: Chicken Drops are the $h!t

On to my third and final Belize entry. It was our last Thursday in San Pedro, and my husband and I decided we wanted a night on the town, and perhaps a little flutter. Where better than at Wahoo Lounge’s ‘World Famous Chicken Drop’? “But JC, what is a chicken drop?” I hear you ask. […]

Week Eight: Battle of the Blades – Robson Square Edition

This week I decided to go ice skating at Robson Square in the heart of Downtown Vancouver after work. Like so many Vancouver attractions, skating at Robson Square was one of those things I’d kept meaning to do every winter, but never quite got round to. Now, spurred on by the afternoon’s nail-biting gold medal […]

Week Seven: Quelfing the Night Away

This week my husband and I were invited a board game night, where we played Quelf for the first time. Quelf is a party game for 3-8 players, aged 12 and over. According to the official Quelf website; there is only one rule… obey the card. Basically players roll the dice, land on a coloured […]

Week Six: Saying Ahoy to the Vancouver Maritime Museum

Thanks to Family Day, we currently have a long weekend in British Columbia, which coincided with my husband’s parents visiting. As my father-in-law has an interest in military and maritime history, for my new thing this week we visited the Vancouver Maritime Museum. The museum is only a stone’s throw away from our apartment, but, […]

Week Five: Homer, Socrates & Plato Walk Into a Bar. (My Intro to Ancient Philosophy)

This weekend I delved into the world of Ancient Philosophy by attending a one day introduction course at the University of British Columbia, focusing on Ancient Greek thought. Although I’ve always enjoyed Greek mythology for the stories alone, I have never read or been taught anything about philosophy. The entire field of study was a […]

Week Four: Life is Art. Unless I’m the One Holding the Pencil.

I’ll be blunt. Art was not my favourite subject in school. I loathed cleaning the paint trays at the beginning of every painting session, and the vicious weekly scrum to grab the best brush, clay knife, or whatever other piece of equipment was necessary for the assignment. Or, at the very least, not get left […]

Week Three: Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee. Shadow Boxing Like Muhammad Ali

Another week, another new experience. This week I decided to try shadow boxing. Approximately twice a year, typically in January and September, UBC Recreation hold a Shopping Week, giving people a chance to try out some of the many classes they offer. The trial classes are open to students, staff and the general public, and […]

Week Two: Laughter Yoga is a Serious Business

Every year, just before new programs start, the Vancouver Community Centres offer free trials of some of their classes. During the Christmas break I scoured the listings to find a new experience, and my eye was caught by Laughter Yoga. Not knowing the first thing about it, but assuming it was some sort of deep […]
