INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

I can’t believe how fast March is going by, because there is only one more week to go before April! This weekend is the Easter Long weekend…and most importantly, on Friday we will be on our way into the Rocky Mountains -finally! 🙂 But even if you aren’t joining us on this trip, don’t worry we still have so much more to do!

Euro kidsThe Rockies Trip -finally here!

When did the time go? No need to be dreaming about the Rocky mountains anymore, because in just a few short days, we will be on that bus heading towards the beautiful mountains! Even if we leave quite early in the morning on Friday, you can just sleep on the bus! But I think I would be too excited to sleep. For information on what to bring/pack, last minute updates, etc. please come out to our pub night this week! Countdown: 3 days, 20 hours, 31 minutes, 20 seconds!!!

Are you ready?

When: Friday March 29

Where: Canadian Rocky Mountains

Richmond Go-Kart!

They told you that you can be anything…so last weekend you became a soldier, fighting in an epic battle and dodging paintballs. But don’t let it stop you there, how about becoming a race car driver? We will be going to Richmond Go-Kart for a fun day of racing! They offer one of Western Canada’s largest kart tracks at a half mile long. Are you the best driver? Find out soon! This event is weather depending but don’t worry, we’ll have a back up plan if it rains! Party must go on, right?

More information to be updated soon, keep checking our Facebook page and blog posts!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Tim Hortons VS Starbucks?

I was just casually looking through the Vancouver Sun today, as one does, and I read something really interesting. Apparently, there are more Starbucks in Vancouver than Tim Hortons! Could this be a battle between Starbucks and Timmy’s (short name for Tim Hortons)?! Dun Dun Dun!  The Vancouver Sun reported that there are more Starbucks in Metro Vancouver! More specifically in Richmond, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Delta and Port Moody! But places like Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford have more Tim Hortons!

I find this very interesting, because Tim Hortons is Canada’s number one place for Coffee and Donuts! It symbolizes Hockey as well as Canadian pride! Even the commercials for Tim Hortons really focuses on creating a brand name that represents Canadians. And let’s not forget the fact that Timmy’s is genuinely Canadian, being named after a Canadian hockey player! Starbucks on the other hand is American. Yet, according to the Vancouver Sun, there are more Starbucks than Tim Hortons, which then might suggest that the majority of Vancouverites prefer Starbucks?

…Okay I’m not going to lie, I actually prefer Starbucks drinks over Tim Hortons. There, I said it.

Whose side are you on -Starbucks or Tim Hortons? Or Neither? Comment Below and tell us! And if you want to read more up on this coffee chain battle, click here!

Hope everyone is having a superfragilisticexpialidocious weekend 😉

Cheers,

Special PuB NiGHT – Review

Yesterday we had a special PuB NiGHT going on at the Bourbon on Cordova St. Together with some of our INTERNeX partners we arranged this special event for you! The night started at 9pm when some of our INTERNeX candidates entered the pub. The theme of the party was ‘Been Around The World’ so a lot of people where dressed as their own country. To give you a good example, our candidate Flo from Austria was wearing his ‘lederhosen’ to the event, which was absolutely awesome!

Moose Travel was hosting some fun games during the evening. Some of our candidates wanted to play, so they were divided into teams. In the first round the teams had to crowd surf one of their team members, who had to drink beer with a straw afterwords. The second game was quarter bounce, where the players had to bounce several quarters into a cup. In the last round there was a real battle between the teams. Every team had to pick one team member to battle against the other team. Those persons were blindfolded and were wearing a helmet with an empty can on top of it. In the battle the players had to try to hit the can off the helmet of the other team player! Of course there were prizes to win last night, and team Jet Wild was the winner of the evening! They won Moose Whistler tours, tickets to the Giants playoff game and t-shirts!

The games were a lot of fun to watch and everyone was enjoying themselves. We had no cover, no line up and drink specials the whole evening, so basically we had a GREAT evening! Thanks for coming everyone. Check out the pictures from last night at our Flickr Page. Hope to see everyone next Wednesday!

Cheers,
