What to do on the weekend?

It might not be the best weather today, but the weekend is starting today, so at least some good news, right?! And it gets even better, because it’s going to be a long weekend. Here are some ideas, as to what you could do this weekend.

Monday is Victoria Day, which celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria. Who is Queen Victoria you might ask? She was the Queen of England and head of the British Empire when Canada became an independent country.

On Saturday, we are going to go bike riding in Stanley Park. We will meet at 12 pm at Yes Cycle at 687 Denman St. The first hour for the rental of the bikes will be $8 and the second one $7. So join us and explore Stanley Park.

For all of you who enjoy the Yale, I have an interesting tip for you. This weekend, from the 17 to 20 May is the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair in Surrey. It is one of North’s Americas longest running Rodeos, with additional entertainment and food. Tickets are $10 and up.

On Saturday and Sunday is the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The event features an exhibition and a vendor fair with hundreds of creators from around the world. There will also be readings, panels and workshops. The festival will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping and want to find some unique things, it might be worth checking out the Eastside Flea Market on Saturday or Sunday. This is not your average flea market. You will be able to find vintage clothing, quality handcrafted items, jewellery, natural locally-made body care, art, vinyl records, food and many more interesting items. There will be over 50 vendors, so there will be plenty to see. Admission is $3.

Have a wonderful weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!

Newest member of the INTERNeX Team

Tomorrow is PuB NiGHT, and there will be a new girl joining you. Me. My name is Megan and I’m the new PR-Coordinator at INTERNeX. I will work alongside Jasmin the next few weeks and organize events, trips and the PuB NiGHTs, and of course inform you about them on Facebook and the INTERNeX blogMegan-03.

I guess, I should tell you a bit more about myself. I’m 24 years old and I’m from northern Germany, where I study International Management. Two years ago, I spent a semester abroad in Victoria, where I had the most amazing time and fell in love with the Canadian culture.
So when I saw the INTERNeX job posting for the PR internship in Vancouver, it was a no brainer for me to apply. It includes everything I like: meeting new people, adventures, and Canada.
Thus, you can imagine I was thrilled when I got the position. Getting to Canada wasn’t the easiest, but that is a story for another time. Now, I am here (…finally), and excited to see what the big city has to offer.

By the way, I am a foodie. So, if you are looking for somebody to go try new foods with, I’m your girl. Also, be prepared for some random dance sessions out of nowhere, paired with some clumsiness and maybe even some bad singing.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you tomorrow at Moose’s Down Under.

How was your weekend?

Phew what a weekend. This time I was spending my time to explore some other places in Canada. I didn’t want to stay too close to Vancouver so I thought what would be a better option than to travel all the way to Toronto. And that is exactly what I did.20190414_031519_0-1.jpeg

The long weekend started on Thursday evening with an overnight flight to Toronto and thanks to time difference we arrived in Toronto around 7 am. No matter how tired we were it was time to start exploring. The check-in for our Airbnb was only at noon so we decided to start off the day with a nice breakfast in downtown. Later on we got to our place, took a nap and really started to see what the city has to offer.

20190414_013920_0.jpeg

In a nutshell, we had some yummy dinners, great parties, amazing views and new friends. For me Toronto was an exciting place to experience since I’ve never been to a city similar to it. My friends thought that some parts of downtown reminded them of New York but in a smaller size. I’ve never been to NY myself but I could see what they meant since the busy streets were full of huge advertisement walls with their bright colors.

On Sunday we did a day trip to Niagara Falls. The bus drive is only a couple of hours and it goes by really fast. A round trip ticket to the falls was only 45 dollars, which I found pretty cheap. We stayed in Niagara Falls for about four hours and it was raining almost this whole time, but we didn’t let that get us down. The little town next to the falls totally surprised me. I did not expect anything like it, but it was like a small Disneyland. Four hours were gone before we knew and it was time to head back to Toronto.20190414_033439_0.jpeg

Toronto is a huge city with so much to do and see. Within these few days I feel like I only got a small peak of all the things there is to see. I am still very glad I decided to do this trip and would recommend Toronto and Niagara Falls to anyone.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend as well!
