A fresh breeze in the PR-Team

Who is that small girl sitting in the INTERNeX office? It is me, Kerstin. I am now joining Bart and Mandy as a member of the PR-Team. Some of you, I already met this weekend on the ice or in the Yale Saloon. For the rest, let me introduce myself.

kerstin

I am 22 years old and currently studying International Leisure Management in Breda, an awesome city in the Netherlands. This practicum at INTERNeX is part of my study program. And no, I am not Dutch – I am German, from a city called Aachen in the western part of Germany. I really do like the Dutchies, but I decided that it is time now for a new challenge here in Canada.

I enjoy making plans and organizing ahead, so I keep lists and notes for everything and I am happy whenever a plan is working out properly. Since I love the sea, mountains, but also busy cities, I think that Vancouver is the place to be for me. As a scout, I am prepared for the Canadian big city and wildlife. I can be enthusiastic about the smallest things and I am always in for new actions.

So, the PR-Team becomes international from now on. Until August, I will make sure that you can experience many fun activities with us here in Vancouver! I am already excited to ski, hike, party and play games with you!

I am looking forward to meeting all of you at our PuBNiGHT tomorrow. See you there!

Laser tag @ Laserdome

Saturday, September 13th, we’ll have a fun and thrilling evening playing laser tag! For those of you who don’t know this game… well, it’s quite simple. You’ll be equipped with a west and a special plastic gun. It’s all about shooting others while of course avoiding being shot yourself. And yes, it’s totally harmless, and it doesn’t hurt when you get hit.

The price is 15$ per person for 2 games of 15 minutes each. The game starts at 4pm, so we’ll meet up at 4:40pm. And remember not to be late. Otherwise the empty spaces will be overtaken by other people. You’ll need to sign up for this event Wednesday, September 11th, at the very latest. In this way it will be easier for me to make a group reservation. You can sign up here. You won’t have to pay in advance, since we’ll be able to pay separately at the entrance.

This cool event will take place at Laserdome, 2455 Dollarton Hwy #110 in North Vancouver.

INTERNeX Canada: Whistle Weekend Review

After the last weekend we can look back to an amazing Whistler trip! We had so much fun in these two action-packed days! Exciting hikes to lakes and a suspension bridge, fascinating bike rides with gripping lake views, thrilling ziplines and literally breathtaking bungee jumps!

We started off on Friday and our bus ride was filled with the foggy and mysterious-looking landscapes of the famous Sea-to-Sky Highway. In Whistler we checked in the HI hostel and were happy to discover our rooms to be in a private unit with bathroom facilities – just for our group! Friday night we enjoyed the nightlife of Whistler Village: we went for pizza, had drinks and watched sport highlights of the day in a pub, danced the night away in a club where a fire breathing bartender entertained us even more.

Our Saturday trip started with a hike to Lost Lake that actually was quite easy to find :-). Later, some of us rented bikes to continue a sunny tour around the beautiful Whistler lakes. Others had probably the most thrilling experience of their lives: we jumped from a 50m high bridge over the Cheakamus River! A moment that will stick with us forever. In the evening rain took over in Whistler, so we stayed in the hostel and had a tasty dinner with hamburgers and salad. A spacious and fully equipped kitchen was perfect to prepare food for the whole group and was a lot of fun for us all! It was a relaxed evening at HI Whistler: we hung out in the comfy chairs of the hostel’s common area and used the TV room with the huge screen for a movie night!

The hostel also provides a convenient dining room and café for breakfast, which was amazing for an early Sunday morning. We began our day with a hike starting right next to the hostel and discovered a suspension bridge on our way! Some of us went for another adrenaline shot and zip lined high up the Blackcomb Mountain. To end our perfect Whistler experience we took the Peak2Peak Gondola to see the graceful mountains expand in front of us and, once on the top, we spotted the famous Inukshuk Olympic symbol! It was a spectacular view!

Thank you everybody for joining this amazing trip and making it an unforgettable experience!

Cheers,

Xenia
