Adios, amigos!

Oh guys.. Now it’s also time for me. Time for me to leave. Time for me to say goodbye.
It’s been a great time and I cannot call myself luckier to have come to Vancouver and live those 13 weeks of awesomeness!

I know it’s just been three months, and there were just a few of you that were present the entire time, but I feel that I’ve known so many of you for more than just a couple of weeks. I cannot count the many moments that I will keep in my mind forever, that made 37192266_10156379462734647_3702215724152913920_nme smile, that I’m thankful for and that just showed me how easy it is to make friends and bond over some random, weird stuff.

So many events, so many PuB NiGHTs, so many trips that kept me busy during my stay in Vancouver. It was tiring and exhausting from time to time, but there was not one single moment that I regret spending with you guys.

The trip to Portland, Oregon, which was also my kick-off event with the INTERNeX-gang, was just incredibly funny. Even though, we were missing out on sleep and were quite unlucky with the weather, I enjoyed discovering the American city with you and spending the evenings playing “complicated” card games. Who would include “Kiiiii” and “Queeeen” in a card game, if not us? 😂

Speaking of weird neologism, our trip to Vargas Island was definitely one of my favourite moments. The introduction of the word “Schnäck” and all the achievements we made during that trip really left their mark. The successful attempt of lighting up a fire out of wet wood, building up the tents in pouring rain and installing the tarp from scratch was something I will never forget.

And last but not least, our four-day trip to the Rockies. It wouldn’t have been the same without you guys. Just enjoying the breath-taking views of the beautiful nature was amazing. But spending the journeys in the bus with fun conversations and games made the trip so much more valuable. Thanks for joining all of this craziness with us.

There were so many more funny moments that I either can’t remember or that are just too insignificant to list now! But I guess you all have your own favourite moment and will keep it in your memory!

As the orientation video announces, the PR-team  “will make your stay unforgettable”… but I have to say that it was you – every single one of you, that made my time here unforgettable. The office-team at INTERNeX, you candidates at events and in general the City of Vancouver (or the Day 2Country Canada). I don’t even know, what was the most special of all! I guess it was the composure of it all: Having the incredible nature in and around Vancouver, having you to discover it with, and having the INTERNeX-team that made all of it possible.

I can just say, that this chapter of my life has a very important spot in my heart. I grew profesionally but also personally. As I said, I am thankful for every single one who was part of this. I will really miss the times.

Keep up the craziness, I definitely will. And all of you: Stay the way you are – keep travelling, keep exploring!
Chances are that we meet again!

See ya, bye!

It’s time to say goodbye. This makes me always sad therefore I prefer to say “See ya again” one day.
I’ve had an amazing time here in Vancouver and all of you’ve had a hand in it.
Thanks to all of you for making my time in Canada just incredible.
The time went by way too fast and I’m so sad that I have to leave already. On my first weekend(three months ago) I went to the Rockies and was impressed by the stunning nature of Canada. Since that moment I’ve started to love this country.
During my stay in Vancouver I’ve seen so many beautiful places like Vancouver Island, the Rockies, Whistler, Portland and Seattle.
One of my favourite trips was the hike to the Garibaldi Lake and the Panorama Ridge (33 km) in the Garibaldi Provincial Park. I was nearly dead after this hike but I’ve never seen something which is so breathtaking and gorgeous like this!!
I’ve never enjoyed my life as much as I did here.
You can’t beat this city – it’s possible to experience the big city life and the stunning beauty of nature at the same place.
A BIG THANK YOU to Mina and Tim for offering me the opportunity to do my practicum at INTERNeX. I’ve learned so much for my studies in Germany and especially for my life.
Another thank you goes to Henrik for introducing me in my new tasks at the PR-Department and supporting me all the time.
Last but not least – thank you to Lisa and Simon for the great and fun time in this office.

I’m going to miss Vancouver, Canada and ALL OF YOU way too much. For sure I’m going to come back some day.

Take care,

Sophie

Goodbye INTERNeX

Today is my last day here at INTERNeX and I sadly have to say goodbye to everybody. 

I had such an awesome time here in Vancouver, with not only lots of great work experience but especially a really good time with all of you. The time has gone way too fast and I am soo sad to leave already, but I really hope I can come back some time. It was so nice to get to know everybody here and to have lots of fun together at our PuB Nights and other events. I especially enjoyed the time in Victoria, which was my first trip with INTERNeX, but I am even more looking forward to our upcoming time in the Rockies from tomorrow on.

I also want to thank everybody for joining all the events and having such a great time together, and especially I want to thank all the members of the PR Team, Alex, Ole and Henrik for helping me out with all the tasks we had to do and for being really nice colleagues. Thanks to Tim for offering me the great chance to do this practicum and supporting me with everything here and also to Simon, Lisa & Mina for the great time in this office.

I hope everyone of you is enjoying the rest of their time here in Vancouver, you can be sure i’ll really miss it!!!! I’ll think of all of you during my travels for the next few weeks.

PuB NIGHT review

On Friday we had an awesome Pub&Club Night @ The Cambies. We met at 8:30pm and the pub was pretty full, but we were lucky and had a table just for us and the guy, who loved to share his fake teeth with us 😉

 
The Cambies is one of the famous pubs around Vancouver and furthermore you have the possibility to watch baseball and other sports on the TV screen – and of course: HOCKEY!


On Friday the Canucks had a game against Minnesota. The Canucks didn’t have the best of days –they lost 2:1! Hence, please don’t worry if you didn’t watch the game!

 

 

Some of us ordered food especially fries and we had some pitcher of beer. We stayed at the Cambies till they closed, so we had a great time out.

 

We hope you enjoyed the Pub &Club NiGHT and will join on Wednesday again for the weekly PuB NiGHT. Keep an eye on facebook and our blog.

 
See ya soon!

INTERNeX Canada: Pub Night Review @ Morrissey

Last night at the Morrissey pub, our awesome INTERNeX group gathered together to catch up, share some laughs, and have a few drinks. It was definitely great to see some people who we haven’t seen in awhile, and even some of the new members of our group made it! It was so much fun talking to them about what they have seen so far, their jobs, places they are going to see, and just listening to jokes and their stories.

If you haven’t been to the Morrissey,  you really should! Last night was actually the very first time I was there. The atmosphere was really great and we were seated right near the fireplace! The Morrissey has a very vintage, strange yet modern spin to their decor. For example, there’s a small metal looking bicycle hanging down from the ceiling and a knight statue standing on the side (which I thought was a bit scary)! But I loved the beautiful chandelier which made the pub look so cozy 🙂

If you were missing in action last night, come with us to Cypress this Saturday for a day of skiing/snowboarding! There will be great prices and special events going on that weekend on Cypress since it’s Family Day long weekend! For more information please visit our Facebook event page and of course, don’t forget to join by this Friday!

Cheers,

Flora

That means you get a drink in your hand and have a great time. Many of you might be hesitant…so here are some of the reasons why we think you should come out to our pub night this week at the Morrissey:

  1. because it was a long day at work 
  2. it’s only the middle of the week, which means you still have a few days to go before the weekend
  3. meet new people and make tons of cool friends!
  4. the doctor recommended a shot of tequila and a pint of beer once a week
  5. so you don’t get depressed
  6. flirt with a girl
  7. flirt with a guy
  8. make great memories
  9. get photographed by our PR team and get featured on our blogs
  10. you need a drink  drinks
