Hejdå friends!

So it’s time to say goodbye as I only have a few days left of this week which happened to be my last in Canada before I fly back home to Sweden. My sixteen weeks here have been great, a time full of new impressions and experiences, laughter and adventures and not a day has passed without me singing of joy, haha. 😉 If you know, you know, I sing melodies when I’m happy. 😉 The longer I stayed in Vancouver, the more I fell in love with this city. In the beginning it was a lot to take in, I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t used to the ‘Big City’ life at all, but I’ve experienced so many new things, gone on many trips and I’ve met so many new people who’ve become my friends. I know we will meet again somewhere in the world in the near future. Thank you for making my stay in Canada the best! 🙂

The trip to the Rocky Mountains, which was also my Kick-off event with the INTERNeX-family was an awesome four-day trip with an amazing group experiencing Canada’s incredible nature together. Such a great start of my Internship as a PR-coordinator at INTERNeX and I got a lot of new experiences that turned out to be the best ones ever. Definitely one of my many highlights 🙂

Hiking the Grouse Grind, a trail that is 2,5km long and has 2830 stairs, was another of my highlight events. It was such a great day of hiking, a bit challenging but absolutely worth it. If you are looking for trails near Vancouver with a beautiful view and wildlife I highly recommend this one. Vancouver in general has it all – city-life, mountains, forests, ocean and all the activities that come with it 🙂

Last but not least I have to tell you about the four-day trip to Vancouver Island, including Tofino and Victoria. During this trip we experienced a bunch of things such as stargazing and bonfire on the beach, whale watching, we went to the Long Beach where they filmed scenes of the first movie of The Twilight Saga which was so cool!! I also got the chance to feel the sea for the first time (it was dark outside and I was a little too close to the water so the waves hit my legs, haha, me in a nutshell) but it was such a great, happy moment. 😉

I also had the chance to coordinate the last monthly trip of the year: a three-day trip to Whistler. What a challenge, but I’m so happy we managed to go there in their peak-season. I definitely gained new coordinating skills and I really love how just a few thoughts turn into reality – this ski/outdoor-trip was a great end of my stay and I will live long on this one. 🙂

I must say that there was way more that brought value to my time in Vancouver than these trips, I’ve grown both professionally and personally and I have to thank the INTERNeX- family for that. I can’t wait where the next adventure will take me. 🙂 

You know what else is great? It’s Pub Night tonight, let’s party and say goodbye! 😉 

Cheers

Ida
