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:


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,

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend

Well, September is officially here! And it is full of amazing plans that we will show you in our weekly “What to do on the weekend”.

Vancouver always offers a large number of events, festivals, concerts, markets… maybe so many, for that is very easy to miss  something. Then, the next week arrives and you realized that you lost something that could have been very funny. But no worries, because every Thursday you will have the best selection of the Vancouver’s entertainment.


Of course, the main event this weekend is the party that we have at  HI-Vancouver Jericho Beach! And apparently, the weather will be OK!

To get there, we can meet at 3:30 PM at the closest bus stop, and you can check the best route for you in Google Maps (Get directions). The name is WB w 4 Av FS NW Marine Dr (ID stop: 50594). Then, we can go all together by foot. If you need to arrive later, the Hi-Vancouver location is this (MAP), you can go there on your own. If you have any problems, just call us!

Here you have the Mercedes’ number: +1 778 859 7626

  •  WHEN: Saturday, 7th September at 3:30 PM
