How was your weekend?

Once again, the weekend was just flying by and we are back to our daily routine. And personally, I am looking back at a crazy weekend.
I’ve got a very special visitor from Germany here at the moment, so we spent the weekend with all the stuff you “need to see” around here. And for once, I actually get to be a tourist here in Vancouver one more time. IMG_5701.JPG
On Saturday our lovely Sophie invited us to a very special occasion, she finally turned 19! Therefore once again, Happy Birthday from the whole INTERNeX family!
On Saturday, the INTERNeX crew went to play Lasertag. One of the events I have been waiting for, for a while now. 
And to be frank, I only had one mission: Beating the Swedish self named “Lastertag-king”, just you know … because :D.
Anyways we got to play in an huge area over 3 floors and with new and overwhelming equipment. In three different games, we got to prove our fighting skills, by not only shooting with laser, but with using different special features as well. Turned out, no shield could have saved me. And if there would be any important Lasertag-war ever, you should probably not let me fight in it. Except if you are trying to loose, or challenge yourself :D. So you might figure, that I failed my very personal challenge to beat Bertil. 508c336f-fa65-4c9b-ac5e-0f16373806fa.JPGAnd not only that, I think I came last in pretty much every game. And yes I was very disappointed about myself, please be kind and don’t rub it in my face, even if I do deserve it .. at least a bit!
However, we had a fantastic time and I wouldn’t have thought that this would be sooo exhausting. I actually had to change my clothes afterwards, as all of this hiding, hunting and running around was worth a weeks work-out :D. On the way home, we took a nice  long sightseeing trip in the bus towards the opposite side of downtown. Now you might wonder, why would she do that? Well, I do have two explanations… either the bus driver randomly went the wrong direction or someone (maybe me) decided to take the wrong bus… I think the answer is obvious .. it was option 1 :P.
Thank you guys so much for joining, it was great seeing you all again.
Anyways, I am currently taking my time to recover from this active and adventurous weekend and hopefully see you all on Wednesday at Steamworks, 7pm. Till then, go out and enjoy the beautiful snow <3. 
See you soon 
Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Isn’t it weird how the night from Wednesday to Thursday always feels so much shorter than any other weeknight?! 
IMG_5648.JPGAnyways even though I am bit tired, I had a pretty good night last night again! 🙂
We went to the La Casita, which doesn’t just sound Mexican, but actually took us on a little trip down to Mexico right away. The music, the decorations, the drinks – everything was just perfectly getting you in the right vibe. 
So after some fantastic food, we made our way through the margarita menu. So that even our Danish margarita queen found something new to experience ;P. 
But there is still one massive question that has been bothering me ever since and unfortunately I couldn’t find an answer last night … so when do I get sugar and when do I get salt on the edge of my margarita glass?? So if anyone could please get me out of this sinister hole of cluelessness, please leave me a message. IMG_5638.JPG
Anyways Pub-Night wouldn’t be Pub-Night, if we wouldn’t have moved on to a different location to continue the celebrations of togetherness. Out of the two big favourites, we chose to go to the Cambie this time. Sorry Yale – Saloon, but you will probably see us soon enough anyways.  
A very exhausting game of Pac-Man, brought me closer to nervous break down than I ever wanted to be. Maybe it’s not really who we play against (literally any game), maybe it’s the Cambie itself, that brings out the most competitive side in everyone :D. (Careful, this was an inside joke and might test your loyalty to this blog).
However, afterwards we moved on to the Dance Floor and since we’ve got it all to ourselves, “dancing like nobody watches you”, wasn’t a phrase anymore :D. 
And I won’t lie, we learned some incredible and unique dance moves to show off at the next club visit. Usually you get three types of people on the dane floor. Type 1 would be the “right-tip-left-tip” type, so more the classical “I like to dance, but I am not going wild tonight” kind of A1488CFB-1F64-47F7-B4C9-BA97CC3DF34C.JPGdancer. Type two, which is the “move-your-hips” type, clearly knowing what they are doing and actually looking good doing it, simply born with rhythm in their blood. And then you get the “getting-jealous-looks-because-their-dancing-looks-like-so-much-fun-but-you-get-funny-looks-for-doing-it” type of dancers. (Wow what a handy and short name, well done Nadja.. getting right to the point here!).  
So I think all of us just transformed into type number three and honestly I don’t think I can ever go back from there! 😀
Thank you guys for honouring me with your presence :D. 
See you next week! 
Cheers,

The Year has come to an End!

MerryXmasBanner[2703].png

I know it’s a bit late for this, but better now than never:
Thank you for such a great Christmas Party everyone. I’ll have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people showing up, but somehow, we still managed.  Extra big thank you to the ones, that brought homemade food to share with everyone, this has truly been my personal highlight. Also thank you for bringing such creative and cool gifts for the Secret Santa, I hope everyone got to take something nice home in the end. (You should have seen me decorating those Gingerbread men I got, it was as if I’d be the happiest kid in the world.)
Besides that, we had some pretty good Beer-pong games going on.
After a while we moved on to the Cambie, as a nice last joined Pub-visit for this year. Also, this was the night of many farewells. To those leaving this beautiful country in the upcoming days or maybe left already: It was a pleasure meeting you guys and you will be missed! I hope you are having a wonderful reunion with your family and friends and that you think back to the time here in Canada with a smile on your lips <3.
Thank you for this crazy, overwhelming, funny, adventurous 2019 you all. Looking back there was so much going on and every single one of you made it as special as it was.  And because of that (and because you just can’t live without new blogposts right :D?!), we got something great for you in the upcoming days. From tomorrow onwards we are going to have a little flashback through the last year. So be ready and take a minute or two to reminisce with us!
Don’t miss it.

But most important, INTERNeX obviously wishes you a very happy holiday and a fantastic start into the new year.

Love

– Nadja xx

A little Rhyme for Christmas

Once upon a time there was a little girl, Christmasparty.png
never getting enough of the Christmas swirl.
Now she is older, but still quite small,
still loving this season most of them all.
Doesn’t care about all the presents and gifts,
only the spirit is what she’s trying to shift.
Knowing that all of us here in Canada,
are far away from where there learned their algebra.
Algebra you ask, well I must admit,
that girl can’t rhyme, not even a bit.
All I want is to celebrate with you,
our Canadian Christmas – woohoo.
As you may see,
this ain’t getting better,
so I’ll just stop and pretend it doesn’t matter.
Bring food and drinks and a party mood,
the Beer-Pong Tables will be prepared for good.
Don’t forget to buy a Secret Santa,
or you will be sent to Atlanta.
Since nobody wants to be there,
see you in the office,
Wednesday 7pm – yeahr.

If you still have questions about the Secret Santa or the Christmasparty itself (even tho this poem is a true masterpiece …) feel free to check out the Facebook event or sent us a message.

See you tomorrow,

Cheers,

PuB Night Review

What a fun (and late) night!!! I honestly wasn’t planning on having a big one but with the atmosphere of everyone enjoying theirselves it was hard to keep away from the drinks :). 

78929527_1024162374585864_6992190080529989632_n

I have been having many ‘firsts’ lately and I experiences what a night out at the Yale Saloon was like, and I loved it! It was too great to catch up with everyone again and talk about our week. The food went down a treat and was well needed for a big night of dancing and bull riding. It was so great that the +18 were able to join us for dinner and have a go at the line dance. It seems to be that the most wanted drink for the night was Jagerbombs, there were a few fireballs here and there but personally fireballs remind me of my second night in Canada (wasn’t a good one) hahaha.

After few more Jagerbombs and bull riding competitions we were then ready to move onto the Roxy where we enjoyed live music of some old favourite hits. While dancing I look into the distance and oh my, what did I see…… but a beautifully set up beer pong table, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing this table. It didn’t take long till we had taken over one whole half of the club with this intense beer pong game. As the night went on the live music forced us to the d-floor and the last of us danced and sung the night away. Before we knew it we were at Roxy Burgers at 2:30am reminiscing on our fun night and laughing over some burgers and fries. 

Thank-you everyone for such a great night, I LOVE YOU GUYS! I have been feeling a little homesick lately but you guys bring my mood back up and I appreciate you all ❤

How was your Weekend?

And it’s Monday once again. But since it’s December now, turn up that Christmas music and make the best out of it!
Personally, I had a great weekend to look back to and I hope you guys did too. Friday was my day to relax. As me and my roommate had friends over this weekend we just spent most of the time catching up and talking over a glass of wine at night. Saturday was a bit more adventurous after all. Starting with taking a look at Yaletown transformed into Candytown. And Saturday was also the day to meet my new Co-Worker Sabrina. I am pretty sure you guys are gonna like her just as much as I do. So pretty much anyone who knows me by now, could figure that this ended up in a night going out. We went to a Irish bar/club and danced to Christmas-music all night long. Also Sabrina got into the joy of her first fireball here in Canada. Obviously ;-).

Sunday was a pretty calm day, till I got to meet the INTERNeX crew again!
Because Sunday was the day, I was looking forward to since my very first day here in Vancouver. The Hockey game!

Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 2.32.04 PM

Starting this exciting event at the Beaver for some pre-drinks and food before the game. Thanks again to Moose Travel for inviting us over ;-).
From there we made our way to the Rogers Arena. Even if you had absolutely no idea were this is, you would never get lost.
So many people in the Canucks and Oilers clothing made their way to the stadium, so you simply had to follow their lead. Just like a huge colony of ants, the stream brought us right away to the entrance. From here everything went pretty quick. Security check and finding the seats turned out to be super ea
sy and uncomplicated. From there a great show was to be provided.
Starting of with the mascot opening the ice-rink. From there we got to see everything you want to see in an hockey game, many goals, a lot of cheering and so much tension. Even a little fight in the end.
Even tho the Canucks didn’t win in the end, we still had a great time.
This wasn’t the
