How was your weekend?

“Lonely. I am so lonely. I have nobody …” dadadadaa. 🎶
Well, I am not that lonely, but still am the only PR-team member left now and I feel as sad as Akon in the song that I just got in your heads. 😉
But let me tell you about my weekend because it was actually not that lonely.

Friday was a great kick-off for the weekend: We finished work earlier but still stayed in the office to enjoy Nadine’s last hours there. We played some games and just chatted for a long time. When we finally managed to call it a day, we went on to BierCraft on Commercial Drive. With a group of around 9 people, we spend Nadine’s last evening in a relaxed, yet fun way. At around 1am we decided to head home. It was sad to say goodbye, but we all knew, that it would just be a goodbye for the moment – we will sure as hell meet again! 😀 – Yeah, Nadine, you signed up for this. ❤

Saturday was just a really calm day for me. I talked to a friend back home in Germany and started to get my stuff sorted and packed. Yeah, soon it’s also time for me to leave – but let’s not get into that right now. So, I did laundry, got my suitcase out of the closet and packed some first things. Basically, stuff that I won’t need for my last time here.

Nevertheless, 13 of you showed up and boarded the ferry at Horseshoe Bay with me! Thanks for showing up and enjoying this day. Once we arrived in Snug Cove, we had a short restroom break but started quickly after with our tour around the island. After 30-45 Minutes, I already heard some of you asking for a lunch-break, so I was happy when we finally arrived at the picnic spot. Being fed and ready to hike some more, we made our way around Killarney Lake, enjoyed the views and nature. 42499125010_6a0ac66ce2_nShortly after we finished the round trip around the lake we arrived back in Snug Cove and had to wait for the ferry. While waiting, we bought some locally produced ice-cream, which was just tasted amazingly good! Once we arrived back at Horseshoe Bay, we took the bus back home. I arrived at my place around 6.30pm and was dead and done. Even though we didn’t do much, I felt really exhausted. So, I just collapsed in my bed and called it a day.

I hope you had a good weekend, despite the grey weather. See you on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT at Mahony and Sons!

PuB NiGHT Announcement

Just when you got rested after the long weekend the next INTERNeX event shows up. You know why? Because we like hanging out with all of you too much! ♥ ♥

This week we will be meeting up at Malone’s at 19.00/19.30. Address: 608 West Pender Street.

On Wednesday’s West Trek organizes their Wolfpack reunion for the Rockies trip there and we are going to join them! Why you ask? Well, we just want you to get a glimpse of what this tour has to offer, and what a crazy amount of fun it will be to join this trip with INTERNeX.

There will be several guides whom you can ask everything you have always wanted to know about the tour and these famous mountains.

Not only will we be going to Malone’s because of the Rocky Mountains trip. Malone’s is a great place to meet up with friends and they serve good beers and food. This night there will be a burger and beer combo on special for only 15 (fifteen yea) bucks!! And from what we have heard, the burgers are finger licking good.

Anything else? Nope, that’s all. See you guys tomorrow!

Pub Night Announcement

Russel Crowe once said: “I have respect for beer”. And who has not?

Let’s put that respect into practice on tomorrow’s pub night.

We would love to take you to The Morrissey on Granville and Davie St. (1227 Granville Street) this Wednesday at 7.30 p.m.

Pretty cheap drinks I’d say:
1516 Lager – $5,75
Black Buck Ale – $5,25

And many more beers enjoy.

For those who crave food: a veggie burger for only $6,00

Good news for wine drinkers too:
$4,50 for either a glass of red or white wine 😀

And, we have been thinking.. Guys, bring your ultimate travel photo, which holds a great story, and be ready to share it! We’ve got some new faces in our group and it would be nice to get to know each other a little better, wouldn’t it?

Catch up later fellas!

INTERNeX Canada: Highlights of the week

Have you ever thought about the fact that there are 168 hours, 10,080 minutes or 604,800 seconds in one week? And what would you say, how many of these hours, minutes and seconds in this week did you actually spend on doing something you really enjoyed? I know, there’s always work or a job hunt or simply a lack of money in the way but at some point, we all have to actively make a decision for joy. It doesn’t just come to you like spam emails. Luckily enough, even if Vancouver has lately been showing itself from its very authentic side as far as weather goes, there were tons of opportunities to enjoy ourselves in the last 168 hours.

I guess I personally covered almost all the hours dedicated to ‘fun’ in Whistler last weekend and rather took it easy during the week for this reason. So last Saturday, a group of 16 INTERNeX-ers and friends headed north to the beautifully fall-like village of Whistler. We spent our time eating, shopping, hot-tubbing, drinking, partying, bungee jumping and just hanging out at the lodge. We, the PR-team, were glad everyone had such an awesome time and we all got back to Vancouver safe and sound but tired on Sunday night. Check out the full report on what we did in our INTERNeX blog.

After three days of work I was definitely ready for another PuB NiGHT, though – I’m telling you. The Cinema Public House on Granville St was the perfect location for a chill night with almost 20 people attending. We enjoyed wine, cocktail and beer specials before I called it a day comparatively early this time (not very typical of me, I know ;)). I’m sure the others stayed way longer and maybe even put on a fussball (=table soccer) tournament or something.

I hope you had enough fun too – whatever ‘enough’ means to you personally. And make sure this weekend is not a waste of time, okay? My tip for Sunday afternoon: Join us for a tour of the BC Sports Hall of Fame Museum at BC Place Stadium! Just show up at noon right in front of the entrance to Gate A and get discounted INTERNeX tickets for $10 instead of $15! 🙂

See you there,
