INTERNeX Canada: Rocky Mountains Trip Review!

Last weekend was an unforgettable experience for all 17 of us who went to the Rocky Mountains trip. Watching the beautiful scenery of snowy mountains and lakes really made me think how much I took Canada for granted. The bus we went on was named the “party bus” and it was a perfect fit.

Our West Trek tour guide, Lee, was amazing. Man, I don’t know how this guy had so much energy, considering we partied every night and woke up super early. And quite honestly, it was Lee who really made this trip so special for all of us. He has got the BEST jokes, music, games, and impressions of different accents with a comedic spin to it! Some inside jokes I will always remember are: BeCARFEUL monsieur! Japanese girl: ahhhhh~ and hi-cheese~!

Another great thing about this trip was the gorgeous weather. We really were a lucky bunch because it was sunshine and blue skies everyday! And because of this, we got to see all of Mount Robson, which is super tall! On our way to Valemount, we got off to look at spahat falls. It was so nice there!

The second day, we made our way to Banff, Alberta. This place was my favorite hotel! During the evening we went to their local pub and club for another night of partying! It was a lot of fun because everyone was drinking and having such a great time. One of the most memorable experience for me personally was the Columbia icefield. It’s a huge place and it was so windy! I thought I was going to be blown away by the wind. Regardless, the icefield was one of my favorite places in the Rocky Mountains. One person said he would come back to get married there…I won’t say who it was 😉

During this trip we went to so many beautiful places such as Lake LouiseBow Lake, Emerald Lake, and of course Banff Gondola! On the way home, in Kelowna, we all stopped for a small lunch break. Unfortunately, someone from the other tour bus wandered off! We all tried to look for him..our tour group suddenly turned into a huge search party. The police got involved and we waited for a couple of hours. Although it was stressful…I think it really brought all of us on the tour even more closer. We really bonded…and like Lee said, we were a wolf pack.

Overall…this trip is something that will be with me forever. I had such a great time and I hope everyone who went did too. If you missed out on this, don’t worry because I am 100% sure there will be another one quite soon!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Fridays

This weekend is a long one guys, because it’s Easter! When I hear Easter, I automatically think of bunnies, basket full of eggs, chocolate (of course), and flowers. But I always wondered why there are such thing as Easter bunnies? Why do they lay eggs? Where are the hens?

According to an old legend, Easter began with the pagan celebration of the goddess Ostara. She was associated with the Spring season and fertility. The goddess entertained children by turning her pet bird into a rabbit. The rabbit then gave colorful eggs as presents to the children.

If that wasn’t enough, I came across a short story for children that “tries” to explain…

Why the Easter Bunny Brings Eggs (adapted by Jean Warren)

Once upon a time, there was a King who had a very powerful magician at his court.  One day, the magician gave the King a hen that laid beautiful eggs for a present. The king liked the eggs but he was greedy and he told his magician that he would like the hen better, if she could lay eggs of gold.  So the Magician worked another magic spell and sure enough the hen started laying eggs of gold.

The king was delighted.  He became very rich and the envy of the other kings.  He kept his special hen in a golden cage next to his thrown.  He knew that someday, someone would try to steal his hen, so whenever visitors came,  he would have his magician come and hide the special hen and substitute an ordinary hen in the cage.

Sure enough, one day someone ran off with the hen in the golden cage.  The king was glad he had had his magician switch the hens.  He sent word for the magician to bring back his hen.  But the next day, when the king looked in his golden cage all he found was a white rabbit.  “What’s this!” said the King.  “Little rabbit, how did you get in here?  The King opened the cage and had his footman take the rabbit back out to the woods where he belonged.  Then he called for his magician.

“Where is my magic hen?”, asked the King.  I told you to bring her back. “I did bring her back,” said the magician.  “I put her in the cage”, I just didn’t have time to change her back into a hen.”

This is Rolo 🙂

They never did find the little white rabbit, but from that day forward, children found colorful eggs hidden all over the kingdom.  And some say, that every once in a while someone found a golden one.

Yeah right, I don’t think so. Actually, I have two rabbits at home named Rolo and Coco..maybe they will leave trails of golden eggs and make me filthy rich 😉

Happy Easter and have a great long weekend!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

The weekend is finally here! If you haven’t been able to get out of the house because of the horrible weather, this weekend is finally your chance! I checked the weather forecast and they said it’s suppose to be mixed sun and clouds tomorrow. So what are you waiting for? I’ve got a list of fun things you can do this weekend.

Call of Paintball!

Have you ever imagined yourself  fighting battles in call of duty? Well you’ll get to experience this tomorrow when we go paintballing! This game will have you pumped and full of adrenaline as you run for your life and dodging. And you’ll be shot at for sure…but don’t worry, it’s just paint 😉 I can’t wait!

Late Night Movies at Rio Theater!

Bored of just watching movies at home? Why not go out for late night movie at Rio? Plus you get to DRINK! This place is an independent art and movie house and they even have a full service bar up and running so you must be 19+. All screenings are at 11:00 pm. Tickets are available online in advance or at the door for $8 or $6 if you come in costume. Tonight, they are playing Blue Velvet, and next Friday they are playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 😀

Take a walk at Stanley Park (maybe go on the Easter train ride?)

Why not take a stroll down Stanley Park? This giant park is great for outdoor adventures, there is always something going on. And on a sunny day, it’s even better! You can watch birds like the blue heron or just simply watch the beautiful scenic view in the sun. OR better yet, why not hop on the Easter train ride? You might feel out of place with all the small children, but hey, everyone is a child at heart 😉

Have a great weekend everybody!

Flora
