I decided to come to Canada, because I wanted a time-out from my day-life and my job. I booked the practicum program, because I wanted to do something what’s good for my resume. It wasn’t the right choice. But that’s not the fault of INTERNeX. At the end I think it would had be better if I had choose the work-and-travel program. I was working at a manufacturing and export company.  I didn’t like it there. It wasn’t the right place for me. It was a practicum for event management.

In Vancouver I was at a homestay. INTERNeX found it for me. My first impression about Vancouver was: Wow, it was so big and full of people. I really love Vancouver/Canada. It was like in my dreams. I will definitely come back. As soon as possible 🙂

I joined every event. It was so much fun. I really enjoyed it. It was good organized and the people are now friends. I made a road trip with a RV from Calgary to Jasper, Banff, Hinton, Okanagan Valley, Vancouver Island and at the end Vancouver. There I stayed for 2 months with INTERNeX. I did a bungee jump when I was in Whistler. I was at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. I was at Fly over Canada. In the Look-out tower. So much else, I cannot list all of my adventures.

AnnI liked the friendly people the most about Canada. The wide, the nature, the wild. All of it. But definitely not the rubbish. The most memorable thing I did was whale watching. The first thing I did when I came home was eating some real bread, no toast 🙂

I got inspired to travel some more. First I want to go back to Vancouver 🙂 Then Australia and New Zealand. I love the connection with other people, the activities and of course I will recommend the service of INTERNeX.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday- Think different

Christmas time is here! Lights, special cookies, tree decorations…red cups in Starbucks, Christmas market… definitely is here! Even if we are still in November!

Probably for the most of us will be the first Christmas time without our families and friends at home, it will be strange I am not going to deny it! But it could be a really good experience to live with our “new families” here! We arrived alone, but nobody is alone anymore. Living without your family and friends makes you more open to the new experiences and it’s easier to know more and more people. It’s usual to establish some kind of special connection with some people, like if you already known them for a  long time;they are part of your life and will be forever!

Some relations are stronger than distance and time, I am far away from home an even if I would live here for long time I’m sure than when I come back the important people in my life will be still there, like always. And the same will happen in the future with the important people you met here.

You don’t forget anyone just because the distance… and right now the borders just mean paperwork, but nothing else.  If you want something, if you love someone just change the things, nobody can say you can’t. Live your dream, don’t dream your life. Everything is possible if you firmly believe that.

And after this little reflection, it’s forbidden to think more, it’s Friday! Let’s party with our new family here!


Happy Friday!
