INTERNeX experiences Whistler

Past Friday we started our amazing weekend trip to Whistler. During our bus ride we collected some power for the night. Whistler received us with rain and the way from the bus station to the hotel therefore was not that enjoyable, especially because we all had to carry lots of food and of course our baggage.
Furthermore the challenge for me was to guide all people, with suitcase in the one hand, IMG_2008mobile phone as a navigation system and umbrella in the other hand, to our accommodation.
After arriving there we divided all the food (more or less) fair and got ready for having dinner.
I was wondering that we managed to go out togetherbecause actually it’s always a little difficult to handle so many people. Therefore I’m glad we made it! Afterwards we met up in one of our rooms for celebrating the rest of Vivien’s birthday. In addition to that we partied into Yannick’s birthday. We had lots of fun!

IMG_2072Concerning the weather the next day was a way better than the day before.

Luckily the sun was shining the whole day. Perfect requirements for doing all the activities we had planned. Most of us did zip lining which is really amazing and it’s also a lot of fun! I have done that before so I just went hiking with some other girls. We bought a ticket for one of the gondolas and enjoyed the gorgeous view on the peak of the mountain. Some girls also did bungee jumping. I would never do a bungee jump or something comparable. I’m not afraid of heights but I don’t trust the equipment. However the girls really had fun and would like to do this again. Unbelievable!

As I already mentioned two of our INTEReXers had their birthday this past weekend so we had a good reason to party a lot. That’s why we went out to have some drinks after we cooked dinner on our own. That night was just awesome!IMG_2075

Sadly we didn’t manage to go out as a whole group because some preferred to go to a Club and some only wanted to go to a Pub. I decided to join the “Pub Crawl”. We played darts and some drinking games. It was so much fun!

Even on Sunday our group was separated. I was part of the “Adventure Group”. We wanted to go to Alta Lake, which is actually very close to Whistler Village, and our plan was to rent a canoe but instead we experienced the surroundings (even if it was involuntary…). Nevertheless I guess there are worse places to spend your Sunday afternoon. The weather was beautiful and for that reason we relaxed on a jetty and enjoined
the amazing view we had on the mountains, the lake and the houses around the lake.IMG_2079
And then the weekend trip was already almost over again. Time flies a way too fast especially if you are having a good time and that’s what we had.

 

Hope you enjoined the trip as much as I did!

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of the week Ep. 7/2013

We would like to present the new episode of HiGHLiGHTS of the week.

This week was a special week because of Canada Day on monday! As you can see in our picture of the week we prepared well for this real Canadian party. So we tried some red and white outfits in the office!

Last Wednesday for our weekly PuB NiGHT we went to the Cambie Bar in Gastown. We spend a wonderfull night drinking beer and eating hamburgers outside on the terrace. Thanks for coming and joining us!

INTERNeX Explorer
This week we are doing a special episode (mostly made for the girls) of the INTERNeX Explorer. Mercedes went to see Craig in his salon tangledthoughts.ca. He is one of the best hairdressers in Vancouver, enjoy!

 

Craig: “Hi Mercedes we are going to do your hair today, that will be fun! I wanna get to understand you. Because, in order for me to have a great experience with you, and you to have a great experience with me, I have to be inside your head.”

First Mercedes got a hair massage. After that her hair was washed with a shampoo specific for her hair type. Then it was time to exactly cut her hair. Not to much, only taking of the end. This makes the hair a lot easier to manage. The next thing was to dry the hair carefully, and brush it of course.

 

Craig: “I like to brush the hair because it makes it all nice and uniformed and pulls out any hair that’s fallen out and it brings all the oils down, I like hair just to be smooth and natural.”

Mercedes was very happy with her new hair style! But she also asked you; so what do you think? 😉 Do you like it?
If you have any questions about the products that where used by Craig you can check out his blog. You can even get some coupons there!

Check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge!

One of the first things I saw when I came to the city was Vancouver’s oldest tourist attraction. The Capilano Suspension Bridge, originally built in 1889, stretches 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. Since then much has been added to the twenty-seven acre park. Of the many things to do, Treetops Adventure is the park’s newest attraction – seven suspension bridges through the evergreens taking you up to 100 feet (30m) above the forest floor.

Guided nature tours, the Kids’ Rain forest Explorer program and Living Forest exhibit enhance this unique rain forest encounter. Enjoy musical entertainment and First Nations carving demonstrations. Take photos at the Totem Park and with the Capilano Tramps. Top it off with a visit to the gift shop full of quality merchandise from all over Canada and great homemade fudge!
