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!

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

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Hello everybody! Wonderful Monday it isn’t? We would like to talk today about our last PuB & CLuB NiGHT at The Pint! It was awesome! Thanks all of you for coming guys. The Pint is a really cool place. We started the evening with some food and drinks. All in The Pint is so big! We ordered nachos and a kind of pitcher that you could serve yourself.

We talked about the rafting upcoming trip. We would like to know who is interested in go with us so please leave us a comment o private message about that.

After a couple of hours all the people all of us started to dance. The dance floor was full of people, but we are always the best of the pub, of course. It was a little sad because it was the last day in Vancouver for Beatrice. She’s doing volunteering right now with animals… so good luck in Cochrane!

But it was a wonderful day to say goodbye. We hope to see you this Wednesday in the next pub night!

Cheers,

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Erik went all out with his shorts and flip flops -I applaud you, sir!

Out of all of the pub nights and trips I have organized and attended, probably the most memorable event for me was last Friday.  We were all at the Morrissey pub on Granville street. It was such a fun night with everyone, I thought. Fun…and also very special.

It was actually different from our usual pub and club nights, because not only was it a Hawaiian theme, but also because Tim and our company partners from Denmark came to join us! It was so much fun to see every one enjoying their time, drinking beers, and smiling. I always know Morrissey is a great place for us!

Cheers to tequila shots!!!

As we were sitting at the pub though, I noticed people were taking turns and disappearing for a good five to ten minutes. Hmmm very interesting, I thought. When I asked where they were going, they said they needed to go to the washroom….that must have been a very long washroom break I must say. But later I found out why. My themed pub and club night turned into a my surprise goodbye party! Ilse presented me with a photo scrapbook with everyone’s comments in it. I was so caught off guard that I didn’t know how to react. I think that part of the night is what made it so special for me.

group photo!

Then after, we made our way to VENUE! Enough being emotional because we had to go party it up and dance the night away at the club! Even Joan and Maria joined us to buy everyone a round of tequila shots! It was very very sweet of them and I’m sure all of us really appreciated it (not going to say who 😉 )! Overall it was such a successful, emotional, hilarious, and incredible night!

Thank you everyone for coming out that night and celebrating!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Pub Night Review

How can I write a review for our last pub night? Mmm… c o m p l i c a t e d! Ok, I will do two different versions of yesterday night!

The official version

Yesterday a lot of people showed up! We had a large table and another smaller for ourselves! Even if we were a really international team, yesterday was the special Swedish night! They were the most popular nationality, but we can’t forget the Danish representation, Dutch, Germans, Brazilian, Australian, Canadian and Spanish!

The New Oxford pub was a really nice place to hang out. There was some kind of club downstairs with a band playing in live! That’s the reason why the guys spent some time downstairs and not all together in the bathroom, that was what we though in the beginning haha

There were some specials cocktails and Hanna chose the worst one I am pretty sure! If you mix a cream, shampoo, a salad and I guess some alcohol you will get something similar to that one! Jesus! Absolutely awful! Haha but it was just the beginning, the rest of the cocktails were mmm!

Also important to remind that it was the last pub night for Johannes and Hanna…. Germans we will miss you! But you leave a good representation here with Yannick 😉 It was nice to have you during this time and we will miss you for sure!

After a couple of drinks together at the pub, some of us decided to continue the party at Joes Apartment in Granville Street…mm dancing, singing, chatting… so much fun!

The unofficial version

It was an absolutely blast, one of the longest pub night ever, but one of the funniest as well. I am super tired right now, so probably my grammar will be even worse than usual, but it really worth it. It was fun, crazy, you are nuts and I really enjoyed your company! Even for the unofficial version, there are some details that are better to keep in private, right? But if you want to know, just join us in our next pub night! Easy!

Cheers,

Irene
