PR-team Adventures

18386724_1745195368829240_1548844133_nAs you guys all know we organize a lot of stuff for our INTERNeX family. PuB NiGHTS, weekly events and monthly trips, all of these are organized to make your experience here the most memorable it can be. Because of all these events we have a really nice group who not only attend our events, but also decide to go out together every now and then.

So Saturday we decided to go on a boat party. Some of us got pizza and did a few pre drinks before we headed to the boat, where we met up with the rest of you. We first sat down in the inside area, but quickly decided to go up to the deck to enjoy the view. When we took off you could hardly hear the music, so we made some awesome pictures and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

It was super fun and we made some great memories! After the boat party we all got in cabs and went to Studio Records for the after party.

I had an amazing night with all of you and even though this might not have been an INTERNeX event, we where there with 15+ people from INTERNeX. It was really nice partying with all of you!

INTERNeX goes Rockies May 2015 – Part 2

As promised: part 2 of the Rockies trip review..

DAY 3

Well, everyone was there except for Sambo, Papa Wolf’s right hand on the tour. Sadly we only saw some elk on the tour, but on the other days we saw two black bears and one grizzly bear. APPLAUSE!

We got breakfast from Tim Hortons and we went to see more lakes and went to the top of Sulphur Mountains in a gondola. On our way to the top the view over the mountains was breathtaking, even though it was cloudy we could still see a lot. It was freezing on the top and there was still quite a lot of snow. The weather on the top changes rapidly which was very interesting to see. Another awesome thing on the top of the mountain was the ‘West Trek photo shoot’ – we had to jump or make a Matrix like move while Sambo took a picture. I am excited to see the end result.

Lake Louise and Emerald Lake are a huge highlight of the tour and which is where we went afterwards. Lake Louise is still partly frozen, but the scenery is amazing nonetheless. Highlight of the tour for many people was Emerald Lake. Most of us rented canoes here and got onto the lake and paddled around – absolutely fascinating. This lake has turquoise coloured water, which makes the lake very special. Plenty of selfies were made and a big wolf howl was done by all the baby wolves on and around the lake.

Another huge highlight of the tour was the cabins. Wooden cabins built on the mountain between the trees with a cosy fireplace area. We had a lovely barbecue here, tasted some wine and sang songs around the campfire. Papa Wolf finally shared his bear stories with us and we got to see the Milky Way as it was so dark at the view point. We also had a birthday girl amongst us, so we sang for her, we drank more beers, had more fun and some people only went to bed at 4 a.m. Good job guys!

DAY 4

The very last day of our trip we mostly sat in the bus because we had to head back to Vancouver. But before we headed back to the city we visited a buffalo sanctuary where Leo, the host, told us about his cattle and showed us how native Canadian people used to make fire back in the days.

Then we got to see some real wolves and howled with them, quite an experience I’d say.

We were lucky to have a very warm and sunny day, because we went to Kelowna where some of use dived into the lake; a nice and refreshing end of our trip. We headed back to Vancouver and arrived there around 7.30 p.m. We were sad to leave the Rockies, but we all were very satisfied and happy that we got to go on this trip. Also, almost all of us had new nicknames!

INTERNeX’ers, thank you so much for the great great Rockies trip.

WOLFPACK 1.. 2.. 3..

AAAAAA-HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

ABOUT INTERNeX: The INTERNeX Team!

What’s so special about participating in one of our programs in Canada is that you will meet people from all over the world who have had unique experiences and backgrounds! There is never a dull moment because you are constantly immersed in and learning about different cultures and ways of life.

Just like you, our INTERNeX team in Vancouver have come from various parts of the world! Most of us have fallen deeply in love with this city and have settled down here, while others are just soaking it all up for a couple of months. The differences in each person are what make us all unique, but are crucial to helping us to understand YOU- our candidates – better. We pride ourselves in having the opportunity to experience the international community, and in turn, providing this experience to our candidates.

Not sure who we are or where we are from? We took a new photo of the current INTERNeX team in Vancouver and thought it would be nice to share it with everyone!

From the left we have Mayuko – our administrator (originally from Japan), Barbara – our Placement Manager (from Canada), Mina – our Program Director (originally from Korea), Tim – the President (from Canada), Marianne (from Germany) and Queenie (originally from Hong Kong) – two of our Public Relations Coordinator and Patrick – our Volunteer Program Manager (originally from the Netherlands).

Baring in mind that Martina – our program manager (who originally from and is currently away in Germany), Simon– our IT and PR manager (also from Germany) and Irene, another one of our public relations coordinator (from Spain) is missing from this picture!

We aren’t so scary, are we now? We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have so don’t be afraid to email, call or come find us! Feeling homesick or lost? Just come for a chat! We love working with you and are looking forward to getting to know each one of you better.

Cheers,

Smart Saver Vancouver

You’ve just arrived in Vancouver and don’t know where to stay, or maybe you’re visiting Vancouver for the weekend, or perhaps you live just outside of Vancouver and want to spend a night out on the town or at the beach without having to worry about an expensive cab ride home. So.,  HI’s Vancouver hostels are a great solution to your travelling woes!

Hotels in downtown Vancouver will cost you an arm and a leg, and lack the culture and atmospheres that youth hostels offer.  Hostelling International is great because they have three awesome locations in Vancouver.

HI- Vancouver Central
Central is in the name, because that is exactly what it is! This location cannot get any better for those of you who want to be in the midst of it all.  It is located on Granville Street and just steps away from bars, clubs, restaurants, shopping, as well as public transit.

Not only is the location great, but there are a bunch of extras included when you stay here. This hostel offers a free breakfast and free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building.  What’s more fitting for Smart Saver than a free breakfast??

The HI- Vancouver Central is the perfect location for city dwellers to bask in everything Vancouver has to offer! You get a place to stay for great prices without compromising on security or cleanliness, but maximizing on socializing and a fun community feel.

If you are interested in more of what HI – Vancouver Central has to offer you can check them out here

HI – Vancouver Downtown

The second Hostelling International location in Vancouver sits in the beautiful West End, where you get that neighborhood feeling, with tree-lined streets, safety and parks while being just blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  HI – Vancouver Downtown is just one block away from vibrant Davie Street where there are endless amounts of cafes, restaurants, shops and bars to suit your every need.

This location also offers a FREE breakfast buffet and free Wi-Fi access throughout.  Again there is a great community feel where you can hang out and meet new people in several of their common areas, games room, library and of course the large kitchen!

If you feel West End living is more your style, click here to find out more on HI- Vancouver Downtown


HI-Vancouver Jericho Beach

Summer is just around the corner therefore; there is no better place to be in Vancouver than at the beach!  It’s pretty awesome that Hostelling International has a location right at Jericho beach, which sits just 20 minutes away from downtown and 10 minutes away from the beautiful UBC campus.

This is a great option if you want to experience the Vancouver beach scene, and city life all at one go. HI – Vancouver Jericho Beach is not only surrounded by sandy beaches, but parkland, stunning downtown and mountain views are all at your doorstep!

This hostel has an onsite restaurant run by the North Shore Culinary School, if you are looking for a delicious meal.  And, of course there is a large self-serve kitchen if you do not feel like spoiling yourself with a professionally prepared meal every day.

This hostel is the only beach retreat hostel in all of Vancouver, so it really is a unique and one of a kind opportunity to stay in.  If you would like more information about this specific location, you can find all of it here on their website.

Cheers,

Kristina
