How was your weekend?

Friday 9 pm. We were sitting in the park. Waiting for the party to begin. Only ten minutes left. Our tickets work, we are in. The party can start. That was the moment my weekend could finally begin.

This Friday we went to DubVision, a party in the Harbour Event Centre. DubVision is a DJ duo from the Netherlands. We went in with our free tickets we received. When we walked in around 11:30 pm, the club was still not that crowded. We bought a drink and the club was becoming more crowded. There were two DJs playing nice music, but we still don’t know if that were guys or girls. There was another DJ playing music before DubVision was on stage. After a couple hours we went home.

Rise and shine, next day has arrived. After all the stuff I needed to do, we went to the sushi bar to eat sushi together. Afterwards we took the skytrain to Granville street where the pub crawl began. We first went to the Cinema Public House, where we began the night with a drink. After 45 minutes it was time to go to the Morrissey, where we sat on the couch singing German songs. So now we had the Oktoberfest part from the pub crawl. We went to Donnellans where we had our own space with tables and bar. We closed the night in the club Belmont Bar. After we danced our asses of, it was time to say goodbye.

Sunday was a lazy day. We went to a jazz thing in a church. After 30 minutes we saw it all, so we decided to go for a coffee at Take Five. Tip: the coffee with Caramel and Sea salt is actually salty. We sat and talked till it was time to go home for dinner. Hope your weekend was great as well.

See you at PuB NiGHT!

PuB & CluB NiGHT Review

Last Friday it was time for another PuB & CluB NiGHT and sadly also time to say Goodbye to Danie. We all met us at 7:00 pm at The Cambie ordered some food and of course some drinks, especially some Pitchers of beer for the beginning.

The weather on Friday was really nice, everyone was in a good mood so everything was ready for a great party.  We had a lot of fun together, talked about what we did during the week and what we are going to do on the upcoming weekend including Canada Day on Tuesday, some of us were really lucky because they had a long weekend until Wednesday. So we laughed a lot, had nice conversations, some good drinks and even another great PuB & CluB NiGHT.

So unfortunately it was Danie’s last PuB NiGHT and even the last day as practicum student for INTERNeX. We all said her ‘Goodbye’, which was really sad, and wished her the best for the future and a nice travel along the West Coast. For sure some of us will still keep on touch with Danie.

Hope to see you guys at one of the upcoming events. On Sunday we going to play Paintball in North Vancouver, don’t miss it!

Pub & Club Night Review

Friday we had another great PuB & Club NiGHT!! The pub Pint was really cosy and we all had a lot of fun. This was a great night to meet a lot of people. We all started of with pitchers or highballs to make us all loosen up to the music which got us all in the moods for the Club. The club kept our feet moving to the beat and danced the night away. Once people started to loosen up, they started to break out their awesome moves on the dance floor. All in all, a crazy night! Thank you all for sharing this amazing night with us. We can not wait for the next time.

 

However if you missed it do not worry this week we are going to have another change to meet new people, go to a different part of the city and learn another new pub. This Wednesday it’s time for the Bismarck

 

We hope you had also an awesome time and we will see you all on Wednesday @ the Bismarck for our PuB NiGHT.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend? ‘Rocky special!’

Hello there!

WOW… This weekend was amazing! With 19 other people from INTERNeX and in total 150 students we went to the Rocky Mountains with West Trek. The trip was special because we travelled with the party bus! There was a bottle of free champagne of all the girls and tons of good, loud party music!

But of course there was more then only party time. Let’s talk about this weekend, what we did, what we saw and why it was so awesome!

SONY DSC

Early Friday morning around 7am we left Vancouver with one of the party busses. We drove via Hope and Kamloops to the Spagath Falls. On the bus we did some games, sang songs together and enjoyed the sceneries.

We spend our first night in Valemount. After dinner we had the change to play some real Canadian hockey on the parking lot.. Together with some beers this was a really cool first night.
Next morning we left early in the directions of the Rocky Mountains! Our first stop was Mt. Robson. This HUGE mountain is with 3954 meter the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. We took some cool photographs from the cloudless top.

SONY DSCNext stop Jasper. This was the last stop before we headed to the famous Icefield Parkway. There was some shopping time at the village to get some lunch and snacks. After that we drove into the bigger mountains. Endless peaks covered with snow and ice and light blue or green colored lakes makes this place one of the best on our planet. We stopped at the Athabasca Falls and the Columbia Icefields. From here we went on one of the big special busses all the way up on the glacier! When we arrived up on the ice  there was time to discover this place. If you brought a empty bottle you had the change to fill it up with some of the most fresh glacier water in the world!

After a funny ride back to the base-camp we boarded our own party bus again. With some nice music we stopped at Peyto and Bow Lake. At Bow it was time for some polar bear swimming! Almost the half of the people put there swimming suits on.. After a ‘wolf speech’ of Lee it was time to run into this 5 degree cold water! These experiences makes this trip so special!

Our last drive for today was from the lake to Banff! Around 8pm we arrived in this small and friendly city. After a hour of relaxing in the big hotel-rooms it was time to go partying!! First we went to the pub to catch some drinks and shots. Some of the group we’re wearing some crazy outfits.. At 11pm we left the pub for the big nightclub! That night was a big party for everyone!

Sunday morning and the whole bus with a hangover… 😉 We we’re lucky that the next stop was only 5 minutes away; the Banff Gondola! With a small cable car we went up the mountain! From the top you had one of the best views of the Rockies.
SONY DSCNext we’re some free hours in Banff to catch lunch and buy some souvenirs. In the afternoon we continued our drive up to Moraine Lake and Lake Louise. These two lakes are absolutely stunning and one of the highlights of this weekend! The blue color, the snowy mountains and the endless trees makes these lakes one of the best in the world. (see the picture!)

It was already late afternoon so we drove as fast as we can to our last hotel in Golden! When we arrived we could eat some hamburgers fresh from the BBQ. At night we lighted the campfire and enjoyed some roasted marshmallows. Lee told us some cool stories about bears in the Rockies.

The next and last morning was a long day. We had to drive back to Vancouver so we made a lot of kilometers. We still had time for some funny, nice stops. The first one was at the flea market. Everyone on the bus had to buy something crazy for another person. It ended up with guys in dresses and girls in boxers!

Later we stopped at Othello Tunnels for a nice walk. After this stop is was time to go back to the city of Vancouver!

We had an awesome, amazing, funny, crazy and really great weekend with everybody!

Thanks guys for joining us and West Trek to the Rockies! The pictures and video’s are following (very) soon 🙂

Cheers,

Jelle
