What to do on the weekend ?

Hello boys and girls!

Another week is over, so we will check out what is going on in Vancouver this weekend. It seems that the weather will not be so good (Saturday cloudy/sunny, Sunday rain), but this would not stop our activities.  

All of you should know, that there is the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23. The huge three-day event will take place around the creek at Concord Pacific Place, Creekside, and of course, in the waters.  The city´s biggest Dragon Boat celebration will also feature live music, entertainment, food, shopping, family fun, and local artisans.  It is definitely worth a visit! There will be no entry fee.

In addition to that the International Jazz Festival 2019 takes place this weekend in Downtown Vancouver. If you are interested in Jazz music, you should come to the Robson Square. The festival lasts two days, namely on the 22nd and 23rd June. You don´t have to pay for a lot of concerts. On both days different musicians are going to perform between 12pm and 9pm. To see the exact entry-free concert program, look at the website www.vancouversbestplaces.com .

Finally I want to remind you of our INTERNeX event on Sunday. We have planned a Barbecue at the Spanish Banks Beach. If you look at the current weather report, there will be rain on Sunday. And a Barbecue in the rain is definitely not fun. 

Due to that we will go out for Burger eating all together. We reserved a table on Sunday, the 23rd June at the White Spot (405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1X4) at 6pm. 

We would be very happy if a lot of you come along for eating burgers with us. 48002939878_390603280c_o.jpeg

Those who have already paid for the BBQ can either pick up their money in the INTERNeX office or get it back at the dinner on Sunday.

 

Enjoy your weekend☺

International Dinner Review

The international dinner took place on Saturday the 5th of April in the INTERNeX office. We had people from Sweden, the Netherlands, Australia and of course Germany at the international dinner. We had a lot of food from different countries such as cinnamon rolls, Kaisarschmarn, Spaetzle and much more tasty food.

 

Thanks again guys for getting such a great dinner together. We all were eating a lot but we couldn’t eat all of the tasty food, because is was just to much for all of us. After we had enough food we went to the Cambie’s for a couple of after-dinner-beers and stayed there till around 2:00am and had an awesome night out.

Please keep in mind that the deadline to sign up for the amazing Rockies trip ends on 11th of April at 3pm and for the FlyOver Canada on the 9th of April (you can pay for the FlyOver Canada at the PuB NiGHT).

 

We hope you enjoyed the international dinner and we will see you all @the Blarney Stone for our weekly PuB NiGHT on Wednesday.

INTERNeX Canada: Cheap Pizzas in downtown

Okay everybody knows that Vancouver is an expensive city. But with our “Smart Saver” every week, you can take advantages with our little tips to keep your budget safe!

This week we’re going to talk about pizzas! I’m sure most of you guys like them a lot. Therefore we discovered some cheap places to buy this amazingly good Italian food.

It’s called Fresh Slice Pizza and it has a special offer on Tuesday that you can buy any slice for $1,25! It’s not only valid for the restaurant in Dunsmuir but for all the Fresh Slice Pizza restaurants in whole Vancouver! Sounds awesome right.

ADRESS

Second, we found a pizza restaurant on Granville street. The name of this one is Romano’s Pizza. They have the same offer as the other pizza restaurant and the pizzas are great! We already tried them out 😉

They also have some other special offers for you:

  • Any XL Slice Only $1,79
  • Any 2XL Slices & Can Pop $4,46

ADRESS
902 Granville Street

Where: We will spend the day on the Spanish Bank Beach, but our meeting point will be the Spanish Banks Loop which can be found on the seaside bicycle route

Sleep at the Athlete’s Village in Whistler!

On our trip to Whistler  Laura, Mette and me had the change to stay in the new HI  Whistler Hostel.

Before the hostel opened its doors it was part of the athlete’s village during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Since the opening, on July 1, 2010, it has been attracting people from all around the world.

My first impression  was that it is a modern and clean hostel. What I particularly liked is that you share the bathroom with 2 rooms. So instead of sharing it with an entire floor (what I am used to during my time backpacking in Australia) you only have to share it with the people in your room and in the adjacent room. The TV-room is really big and has some comfortable seats; I can picture myself sitting on the couch after a long day and watch a movie. The hostel also has a event board were the hostel staff posts the events in and around Whistler for the week!

The hostel has a lounge area that is perfect for reading a book or relaxing after a long day. The dining room offers more than enough space to have a relaxed dinner and if you would like some fresh air while eating you can choose to eat you dinner out on the patio! To see some pictures of the hostel, click here

The hostel is located about a 10 minute bus ride from Whistler, but with busses stopping there every half hour you will be in Whistler Downtown within no time!

Some facts about the HI-Whister:

  • Two floors of dorms with ensuite bathrooms
  • 14 private ensuite rooms
  • Family-friendly rooms
  • On-site café with outdoor patio
  • Theatre-style meeting room (seats 60)
  • TV lounge and large games room
  • Self-catering kitchen with dining room
  • Outdoor patio and BBQ deck with mountain views
  • State-of-the-art ski/snowboard/bike storage
  • A beauty of a fireplace

Want to go check out this beautiful hostel? Moose’s Sea to Sky tour give you the perfect opportunity to see all what Whistler has to offer in just 2 days. You will sleep in the HI-Whistler hostel, so don’t wait and sign up to for an awesome tour to Whistler! You can book your trip at INTERNeX! Would rather go by yourself? Check out the HI-Whistler website to see which dates are available!
