Canucks game – Experience IT Review

Yesterday we finally went to a Canucks game. It was great to share this experience with all of you. Thank you all for coming!

The Canucks had to play against the New York Islanders. We were hoping that the Canucks would play well. We were becoming real fans as some of us had our Canucks shirt and/or hats on. We wanted to cheer for our Vancouver team!

17237213_10208456527391711_422730144_oWhen we got in, there were so many people in the Rogers Arena to cheer for the Canucks. We could not believe that so many people were going there to watch the game. The atmosphere in the arena was amazing with all those people together cheering for the teams. The Canucks were playing pretty well and the fans went crazy every time they made a goal. It was great to be able to compare this game to our previous junior hockey game. There were more breaks during the periods and this time we could actually see the puck flying around the field. Because they tied the game was extended with 5 minutes. Unfortunately, the Canucks were not able to score and therefore lost with the end score Canucks 3 – 4 Islanders.

After the game we went to the merchandise shop to do some shopping. There were lots of shirts, hats and even pucks. We looked around for a bit and some of you bought some souvenirs for yourself.

Seeing the Canucks was a great experience! See you next week on PuB NiGHT and have a great weekend!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Central City Brewpub

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Central City Brewpub. It was amazing to see so many different faces. Thank you all for coming!

Central city brewpub is one of the two brewpubs of the Central City brewery in Canada. It is the only one in Vancouver. The pub has many different beers; local, imported and of course their own brand. Their local beers rotate during different seasons. By changing the beers, they give you the opportunity to try out as many beers as possible. Besides beers, they also make spirits such as gin and vodka and they have their own brand of cider.

17197663_1663697853645659_564391158_nThe pub arranged a nice and cosy spot for us in the back. It was a very big space, but most people just squeezed in together. We started off talking about a road trip that some of you are planning. It was really great to hear about your plans and to get inspired by them. After that we got the chance to get to know each other even better. The atmosphere in the pub was really relaxed and open. Even though there were some new faces among us, we made sure that they felt welcome with us like we always do in our INTERNeX family.

I had a great evening and I hope you all did too! See you tonight at the Canucks game or next week at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

This time we only had a short week, because of Family Day. Even more reason to get outside, as you probably did not get that tired from this week. You don’t want to go back to your country and say that you haven’t seen everything, right?

For some of us the weekend already starts early, because we are going to Kelowna today! Kelowna is a beautiful city in British Columbia where you can do a lot of activities like hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing. However, you can also do other things if you don’t feel like being active on our mini vacation. There are several food and wine tours in Kelowna and there are a lot of opportunities for shopping.

Even though you are not joining our trip, it does not mean that you16237737_1615329781815800_1946877102_n should stay at home. Vancouver is a very lively city and there is lots to do here as well. One of the great activities held in Vancouver is Winterruption. This event is a winter arts festival that takes place on Granville Island. It already starts on Friday and will take place till the end of the weekend. During this event you can watch a lot of great performances on dance, music, film, arts and crafts. As it is on Granville Island, which is known for its public market, you also have enough choice regarding food.

There are several sports games during this weekend. On Saturday, the Vancouver Giants are playing against Red Deer at 7 pm at the Langley Events Centre. The Canucks are also playing this weekend on Sunday. They will play at Rogers Arena at 7 pm. When you are in Canada, you should definitely go to one of these games!

Are you more into movies? Vancouver got that covered too! For only $2.99 you can watch MVP: Most Valuable Primate at some Cineplex theatres. The movie already starts at 11 am, so you probably should set up the alarm. However, going to the movie for such a cheap price is normally not possible in Vancouver, so it is definitely worth the try.

Enjoy your weekend and see you today or next Wednesday on PuB NiGHT!

Review: PuB NiGHT @ The Pint

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was great! Thank you all for coming! Most of us were still recovering from New Years Eve and going back to work again, but it was lots of fun.

The Pint is a pub in Downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means fullsizeoutput_19c4that their wings in 40 different ways are only $4.50. There are also a lot of TV screens to watch sports and a downstairs area with a pool table.

In the beginning of some of us watched the Canucks game on the screens in the pub and others were playing some pool. It was fun to talk about the amazing New Years Eve we had and hear all the stories. The night ended earlier than other nights because of the fact that most of us were still tired from New Years.

I had a great evening and I hope you all did too! See you next week!!

Orientation Week with the Scandinavians

img_5661This week was a busy and great week with all the Scandinavians in Vancouver. They were here for only 3 days; right now they are heading to their work in a ski resort. Most of them arrived on Tuesday evening and already met each other at the airport and went straight to their hostel.

On Wednesday we had a long day full with orientations. We picked them up at 8 AM, went to the SIN office and after that to the bank to get them a bank account. When all of that was sorted out we walked to the INTERNeX office and ate pizza. After the lunch break we did the INTERNeX orientation, sorted them out for PhoneBox monthly plans and gave them an introduction about TaxBack. Finally all parts of the orientation were done and we went to the Bismarck Bar for a PuB NiGHT where the other candidates from INTERNeX also came along to enjoy a great PuB NiGHT.

On Thursday we did a Stanley Park Tour which was a long walk, but lots of fun. We first walked to the Waterfront, from there IMG_5654.JPGon we walked to Stanley Park where we started of with seeing the Totem Poles, afterwards we walked into the actual Stanley Park. We saw a lot of beautiful things, a really big tree where we could stand in and the Lost Lagoon. We also saw squirrels and even a raccoon!! Then it was already the end of the tour and went back to the hostel to get ready for the Canucks game. We gathered around 6 PM at the INTERNeX office to get the tickets and went to see the game. The Canucks lost, but it was still a great experience to see a hockey game!

On Friday we planned another PuB NiGHT at Blarney Stone to end the great time with the Scandinavian candidates before they leave to the ski resort. We had lots of fun!

We hope you all will have a great time working at the ski resort!!

Smart Saver

Smart saver Sundaaay again. Time to safe some money guys.

That’s easier said than done. It’s getting cold outside, so the free stuff like walking through the beautiful nature is not that attractive anymore. And of course hockey season started, so no tickets for the cheap hockey pre-season available anymore. Tickets for the Canucks starts from 70$, that’s pretty much.
Buuut no worries. We have a really great alternative for you!!
…….Vancouver GIANTS…..!!!!
Tickets for the Vancouver Giants cost between 19.50$ and 24$. So how does that sound???

As you can imagine Vancouver Giants are not such good players as the Canucks, but you get an entertainment, which is at least as impressive as a Canucks game. The Giants are playing more aggressive than the Canucks ( could be so much fun to see them “fighting”) and there is more pressure in the stadium.
Get more Giants-information here and buy your ticket for a great game here. Enjoy the game!

Wish you a great Sunday and an enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.

Halloween is soon, so don’t forget to vote for your preferred Halloween Party here.
Aaand join us for our upcoming Portland trip.
