INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the week

Our picture of the week is, of course, four our new intern Tobias! He arrived last Monday to the office and his first week was pretty busy!

The Beautiful German Crew

If you don’t know, he’s a 21 years old guy from South Germany. He studies Business Administration, Department of Banking, in a program which combines 3 month training and 3 months at university.  He likes soccer and tennis and hang out with friends.

So this picture was taken in his first PuB NiGHT in The Metropole. We went there last Wednesday to watch the Hockey Game. You can read the entire review here if you are interested.

I made him a little interview about how was his first week here!

 

What was thing that most surprised you about Vancouver?

I think it is definitely the matter of fact that Vancouver is so multicultural. It’s kind of surprising how many people you meet whose origin is not Canada!

 

What was the best and the worst thing during your first week?

The best thing was that I experienced how nice and helpful people are in Vancouver especially my office mates and of course my host family!

The worst thing? I don’t remember any negative moments, because Vancouver is amazing!

 

What did you do to overcome the jet lag?

I tried don’t sleep during the flight from Germany to Canada. Hence I could sleep better the first night, but I was wrong: I only slept 4 hours! But I arrived on Friday, so I had Saturday and Sunday to relax.

 

One thing that you have to bring in your luggage.

Definitely your Letter of Introduction! I saw a few students waiting at Immigration for a long time, because they forgot them LOL.

So welcome Tobias! We are so happy to have a new intern, and we are sure we will have a lot of fun together!

Happy Sunday Funday!

 

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your Weekend?

Geez, Monday again!… I’m the only person who think that time goes so fast here? Especially during the weekend! The feeling that I have during the week can be described like this:

MOOONDAAAYYY TUEESDDAAYY WEEDNESDAAAY TURSDAY! FridaySaturdaySunday!!… MMOOOONDDDAAYYY…

So, I have two tasks right now: drink the huge cappuccino that I have in front of me and tell you how was our weekend.

It was a very beautiful Saturday morning, the sun was shining and the birds were singing, and we went to Hi-Vancouver located in Jericho Beach to have our beach party!

It’s was the first time for me in that part of Vancouver and I have to say that I’m so happy to have attended to this party because I could discover that fantastic place. The hostel is surrounded by the rain forest, a soccer field… very nice place!

Firstly, we had a BBQ! I was so hungry because I was sick on Friday day so I only ate chicken soup during the previous 24 hours… you can image my face when I saw the hamburgers and the chips!  Because we, the Europeans can be very proud regards food, but with hamburgers… there aren’t competitors for the hamburgers in North America and Canada.

Then we played some funny games (like try to hit one watermelon blindfolded) and we won a lot of things! Four people of INTERNeX won trips! We are so lucky in this kind of events.

Then, we decided to go the beach to laze a little bit. It was almost the sunset, and this place is so beautiful, with the mountains in the background… I felt very sad, because I have to leave Vancouver in two months, and those moments I realized that I’m completely in love with Canada. And love hurts. But I’m going to stop because if I want, I can be very cheesy and I don’t want to bother you with my weepy histories.

Take care,

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: Seattle After Party Review

We want to go back to Seattle, that was the conclusion during the SEATTLE AFTER PATRY. We all did something else in Seattle and now that we all told our stories of what we did and experienced we all want to go back and go do other activities. For example some went to the volunteer park others to the Music Experience Project Museum and others went to the underground tour. Seattle was AMAZING and the after party was a great opportunity to share all our stories.

Instead of pizza some of us went to the Blarney Stone and ate the most delicious hamburger you can imagine. At the time there was the St. Patrick’s parade after party at Blarney Stone , which meant that we enjoyed live music and we got some nice green hats.

So don’t miss out on the next big trip from INTERNeX.

The Rockies !!!
