Join us for a real Canadian experience!

GO CANUCKS GO! There is a Canucks fever gripping the city, everyone is preparing for the playoffs. For people who don’t know who the Canucks are, it’s Vancouver’s icehockey team but here in Vancouver it’s almost a religion.

The playoffs are really important and exciting! The Chigaco Hawks beat the Vancouver Canucks already twice but this season the Canucks are better than ever. Will there be a chance that the Canucks win the championship this year?

To find out we need to see the games. It’s a real Canadian thing! The streets will be empty and the pubs crowed. You can’t miss this experience! We will go to the Malone’s, a real Canadian sports bar, on Friday the 15th of April to see the Hawks against the Canucks. The game starts at 7 pm, be on time to get a good seat. Malone’s has a pretty good and cheap food menu, so that you can enjoy the game with en burger and a beer ;).

See you Friday?

Cheers,

Your PR-team

Head down under – Head to New Zealand!

The world we live in is a large and beautiful place. There are approximately 195 countries on earth, all offering different landscapes, cultures and languages. So, have you been exploring yet?  Maybe you’ve only been thinking about traveling, or maybe you’re currently planning your next move. But, if you’re searching for a destination where the landscape is green and the mountains soar as high as your dreams – you’re searching for New Zealand.

New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful landscape includes vast mountain chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiords and lush rainforests. Comparable in size and shape to Great Britain, Colorado or Japan, New Zealand has a population of only 4 million – making it one of the world’s least crowded countries. It is a haven for those seeking peace, rejuvenation and relaxation as well as a playground for thrill seekers and adventurers. A temperate climate with relatively small seasonal variation makes it an ideal year-round holiday destination.

Start planning now and you could be on your way to New Zealand in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup – the premier international rugby union competition. Canada, Australia, England, South Africa, USA, France, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Samoa, Fiji, and Tonga are just a few of the competing countries! This is the third largest sporting event in the world, behind the Olympics and the Soccer World Cup.

Women’s Gold Medal Game

Canada captured a third consecutive Olympic women’s ice hockey title on Thursday, defeating arch-rival United States 2-0 in an emotional championship match on home ice. Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice in the first period and goaltender Shannon Szabados made 28 saves to bring Canada the victory and bragging rights in a border war arch-rivalry between the sport’s only two women’s powers. The Americans, two-time reigning world champions, settled for a silver medal while Finland took bronze with an earlier 3-2 overtime triumph over Sweden.

“We have no excuses. They played well,” US coach Mark Johnson said. “Their young goaltender played well. She didn’t give us many second opportunities. She came in with the pressure of a nation on her and she never cracked. Szabados surrendered only one goal while making 50 saves in Canada’s undefeated run to gold. “She was awesome,” Canada’s Gillian Apps said. “She was amazing – no other words to describe it.”

The Americans had hoped to spoil Canada’s party on home ice as the Canadians had done to them in Salt Lake City in 2002, but now they must wait until Sochi for another chance at Olympic revenge. Better luck next time US!
