HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND? + FlyOver CANADA REVIEW

Yesterday we went to the pretty popular FlyOver Canada to enjoin “The Ultimate Flying Ride” across the most gorgeous places Canada has to offer.DSC00708 It was quite an amazing experience and everyone was excited!

Luckily it wasn’t raining since we met up outside at Canada Place there where you can buy the tickets. During the short time we waited for everyone to arrive we could see a lot of seaplanes landing on the water near Canada Place. Lisa, one of our interns, told us about her awesome experience flying with one of those seaplanes. Accidentally we met another intern with his girlfriend. They also planned to go to the FlyOver Canada and so they summarily decided to join us. We were a group of 8 people that heade down to the entrance of FlyOver Canada. Surprisingly there was no line up and we quickly could enter the room where you get introduced in special personal views of Canada. You got so many different impressions and actually you didn’t even know where to look at but I definitely mean it in a positive way though.FullSizeRender I guess everyone who already did the FlyOver Canada knows what I am talking about. After that kind of introduction we finally got seated in the chairs, the floor underneath the chairs was being rolled back and we could see the full size of the giant screen: We were ready to take off.

To make that experience even more realistic the chairs were moving around, a bit of wind and water was blown into our faces, and of course we could also hear the sound of the helicopter. We truly believe that this was just amazing and they really did a great job shooting all these gorgeous locations and putting together such a memorable fly.

This experience can definitively be recommended to those of you who couldn’t join yesterday. Bring a couple of friends, and for sure you won’t get bored.

After that great event we could watch how a huge cruise liner left the harbour. Since it was already quite cold yesterday evening we decided to go for having a hot chocolate/coffee at Tim Hortons at the Pacific Center. We sat there till the security staff asked us to leave considering that they wanted to finish work.

Besides that, a friend and I went to the cinema but not for seeing the new James Bond movie, as I suggested in my last post, but rather for seeing “The intern” which was a pretty funny movie. At the beginning I was a kind of afraid of not understanding what the movie is about or what they are talking about. Therefore I was even more proud of myself that I was able to understand nearly everything. Next time I really have to see “Spectre”, maybe some of you guys would like to join me?

BLOOD MOON

For the Total Lunar Eclipse, sometimes also called Blood Moon, you don’t require any special equipment and that’s why we watched the Lunar Eclipse with the naked eye the day before yesterday. We met very early at Waterfront Station and walked all the way down to Stanley Park. I actually hadn’t expected that it’s such a long way but it took us more than half an hour to get there.IMG_1935
However the weather this past Sunday was just incredible and so we could enjoy the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Even though in my opinion the skyline and the harbour were much more spectacular or beautiful than the moon, we actually came together to watch this really rare phenomenon. Luckily we had a clear sky and from Stanley Park also a perfect view to the east horizon where the moon rose. It was pretty cold (at least for the girls) but that didn’t deter us from taking a lot of pictures. It was really a great chance because the combination of the Lunar Eclipse and the Supermoon doesn’t happen very often. IMG_1953The last one occurred in 1982 and the next one will be in 2033. A Supermoon is actually nothing more than a full moon except the fact that it’s only called Supermoon when the moon makes its closest approach to the earth. In addition to that the sun, the earth and the moon were “perfectly” lined up for the Blood Moon. But I think that was enough information for you concerning this highlight.

Hope you enjoined it!

See ya!

INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the week

Today Petra would like to share a beautiful picture with you guys! Petra just arrived in Canada and she made already lots of beautiful pictures!

I took this picture on Thursday when I was walking towards downtown Vancouver. The view was so amazing and I just needed to take the picture. I love how the sun shines on the skyscrapers and how the boats look in the harbour. This is my first real visit to Vancouver and I find it beautiful that you are able to see the mountains so close to the city. When you would walk on Granville street bridge on a day without clouds the mountains are just so close that you can see the snow on top. I am looking forward to finding out more about this beautiful city.

 

I would like to thank Petra for sharing this beautiful picture with us!

Do you have a beautiful, funny, interesting picture? Yes? Then send it to us, because you can win awesome prizes, and we might post your picture as ‘picture of the week’!

PuB NiGHT Review

Hey Guys,

Yesterday there was again an awesome INTERNeX PuB NiGHT at the “Bridges” on Granville Island.

The Bridges is a really nice Pub, it is located next to the Public Market and Granville Bridge which offered us a magnificent view of Vancouver’s waterfront and downtown!
The atmosphere was great and as always there were new INTERNeX people that have joined us. WELCOME!!

For more pictures click here

After we had paid, we went all together to the next Bus station and on the way to there we have seen sea lions eating fish on the Harbour Bridge!!! It was really amazing!!
I am sure that everyone enjoyed the INTERNeX PuB NiGHT and I am looking forward to see you on the next PuB NiGHT next Wednesday!!!

Cheers,

Claudio
