Thank you for everything

So, my time has come to say goodbye and hopefully I’ll see you again some day. I’ve had a fantastic time here in Canada, and sharing my experiences together with awesome people just made my experience even better.

Of course I want to say thank you to a lot of people. Thank you to Tim who gave me this great opportunity to work for INTERNeX, and who together with Simon and Mina supported me all the way through my time here. A big thank you to everybody at the INTERNeX office. I’m truly amazed by the efforts you’re doing to give everybody their time of their lives. Thank you to Alexandra and Selina for introducing me to my different tasks and thanks to Sophie for your great help. And of course thanks to all of you guys who participated in all the different INTERNeX activities… you’ve given me experiences that I’ll never forget! I hope that I’ve been able to give you something in return. I feel truly lucky to have found INTERNeX. I can’t believe how much I’ve gained both professionally and personally during the last couple of months.

I’ve travelled to a lot of different countries before, and I’ve also tried to lived in another country before I arrived here in Canada. I can definitely say that this country is like no other I’ve visited. My first trip to the Rockies showed me how beautiful this country is. Stunning mountains, lakes and waterfalls. And I’ll never forget Vancouver. This city really has it all: nice beaches, lots of great events to see and activities to do, and the great outdoors is just around the corner. And with another trip to Portland I also got to see the US. Watching hockey matches, basketball matches, doing stand-up paddling around Granville Island, watching a couple of crazy and entertaining parades, and not to forget all of the pub nights and much much more. What a fantastic time I’ve had here!

Once again thanks to all of you who have given me a great time here, and thanks to Julie and Lina for overtaking the arrangement of the pub nights for the next period of time. I’ll bring all of the great memories with me back to Denmark, and hopefully we will meet again somewhere, someday… who knows 🙂

All the best,

your INTERNeX PR-Coordinator Henrik.

Review: Vancouver Giants hockey match

Last Saturday we went to watch a great hockey match at Pacific Coliseum. We met up around 6pm and walked the last way to the stadium. We went to watch Vancouver Giants against Saskatoon Blades. The Giants are the younger hockey players trying to get their breakthrough to the Vancouver Canucks and the NHL. So it wasn’t the Canucks, still it was amazing to see how big the stadium is and how many people went to watch the match. And the atmosphere was fantastic. We got some pretty good seats behind the goal not too far away from the ice rink. The match had an awesome start with lots of intensity. All of the players gave it all they got, and the match really had all the drama you could possibly imagine… plenty of goals, a fight between two players, extra time and finally a penalty shootout.

And we also got to experience the teddy bear toss. A lot of people had bought teddy bears at the stadium to support kids in need. So, after the Giants scored their first goal teddy bears came flying onto the ice rink. What a fantastic moment! Teddy bears came flying from everywhere and it seemed as if it would never stop. During the breaks we were entertained by small kids plying hockey and a lot of different competitions.

The final score was 3-2 to Vancouver Giants after a nerve-wracking penalty shootout. Thanks to you guys who joined in for this great match!
