You asked for an Irish pub at a central location and because we do care about our friends’ happiness, this is exactly what you got last night! 🙂 A dozen INTERNeX–ers showed up at The Lennox Pub on Granville St and had a great time hanging out and enjoying a strikingly international selection of beer this week. We had the Danish bunch of guys who couldn’t resist the temptation of a nice and green bottle of Carlsberg while the Irish top export Guinness was very popular too, there were some Budweiser lovers (don’t even ask about the reason for that) and the more locally oriented ones of us indulged in some pitchers of Okanagan Springs 15/16 or bottles of Molson Canadian. Again, the drinks took their toll and we didn’t feel like going home at all for some reason. Ended up at Doolins Pub and The Cellar club…Fun times, fun times. 😉 But yeah, this is Canada – doing things you would usually not do at home, like partying in the middle of the work week and not regretting a single second of it. To everyone out there who is not quite sure if the PuB NiGHTs are relevant for them: THEY ARE! 🙂 Meet cool people from all over the world, practice your English, share your stories, make plans for the weekend with your new friends and have funnn!

Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Chris last night. He’s leaving Canada today and going back home to Germany after three months in Vancouver. I remember asking him for a conclusion of this experience over here in one sentence and after about 20 seconds of contemplation he was like: “I think I only need one word for it: Perfect.” Isn’t that something? 🙂 I’m glad I got to meet you, Chris, and hope we’ll see each other again at some point in our lives. Take care and safe travels!!
For the ones still in Vancouver, please keep our wicked Whistler trip with West Trek Tours on October 13th and 14th in mind! We want YOU to be with us on this adventure!! In case you work on weekends, try and make arrangements with your manager asap, it will make things easier if you start planning way in advance. Join the event HERE.
