How was your weekend?

Go Lions, Go! That was the motto of Friday night! Even though the weather was not much to enjoy (it was raining cats and dogs) – our Friday night at the BC Place was great. I hope you had a good Friday, and a good weekend, as well but let me sum ours up for everybody who had to miss out on it.

So on Friday, a bunch of about 20 INTERNeX clients who were interested in sports or wanted to experience another part of North American culture, went with us to the B.C. Lions football game. Even though it was raining, we didn’t care, the stadium was covered and we didn’t need to worry about a thing. Besides maybe about this: What are the rules, what team is ours, and how did they score now? Take a look at our Facebook pictures to get an impression…

However, the ground rules are: There are two teams with each an offense and a defense. They try to carry a ball to the other side of the field and score a touchdown. Those get the most points. The defense of the other team can try to stop them with loads of physical effort.  There are a lot more technicalities to it and you can look that up here, if you are interested. After having a general idea (some of us understood a bit more, others enjoyed kind of just enjoyed the atmosphere…), we can say that the Lions were absolutely successful this Friday! They won against their opponents, the Calgary Stampeders, 26 – 7. And since we were there with such a large group, we even were mentioned on the huge screen of the stadium and got a nice group welcome.

So guys, how was your weekend? Share some of your pictures online or comment below.

Talk to you soon,

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Erik went all out with his shorts and flip flops -I applaud you, sir!

Out of all of the pub nights and trips I have organized and attended, probably the most memorable event for me was last Friday.  We were all at the Morrissey pub on Granville street. It was such a fun night with everyone, I thought. Fun…and also very special.

It was actually different from our usual pub and club nights, because not only was it a Hawaiian theme, but also because Tim and our company partners from Denmark came to join us! It was so much fun to see every one enjoying their time, drinking beers, and smiling. I always know Morrissey is a great place for us!

Cheers to tequila shots!!!

As we were sitting at the pub though, I noticed people were taking turns and disappearing for a good five to ten minutes. Hmmm very interesting, I thought. When I asked where they were going, they said they needed to go to the washroom….that must have been a very long washroom break I must say. But later I found out why. My themed pub and club night turned into a my surprise goodbye party! Ilse presented me with a photo scrapbook with everyone’s comments in it. I was so caught off guard that I didn’t know how to react. I think that part of the night is what made it so special for me.

Then after, we made our way to VENUE! Enough being emotional because we had to go party it up and dance the night away at the club! Even Joan and Maria joined us to buy everyone a round of tequila shots! It was very very sweet of them and I’m sure all of us really appreciated it (not going to say who 😉 )! Overall it was such a successful, emotional, hilarious, and incredible night!

Thank you everyone for coming out that night and celebrating!

Cheers,

Flora

Last Saturday afternoon, we visited the Vancouver Aquarium!! It was really fun going around and looking at all the exotic underwater creatures! I felt so excited and nervous as we walked in, even though I had been there many times! And because there were so many things to see, I didn’t know where to begin! We decided that it was best to look around outside first since it could start to rain later during the day. As we went outside, we saw an otter swimming around. I think the otter was everyone’s favorite part of the day! Then we went to watch the beluga whale show and of course after we went to see the small penguins. And of course, we went to watch the special presentation on Sharks and Rays, which was really cool! We learned a lot about the history of sharks!

My least favorite part of the day was probably during lunch time, because we had to sit outside as we almost froze to death. Okay, I’m just exaggerating, it wasn’t THAT bad. But I really wish they had an indoor cafeteria or something. The last thing we did at the Aquarium was going into a theater to watch a 4D show on the salmon run! It was really cool because of the special effects and little surprises during the movie! If you haven’t been, I really think you should go check it out.

And to end the day, we all went to McDonalds for the free coffee! It was hilarious because there were so many of us and we all asked for the free coffee. Too bad the deal is now over!! Overall, it was such an awesome day at the Vancouver Aquarium, and the Sharks and Rays exhibition is still open till April so go now if you weren’t able to join us last weekend!

If you missed out on some our events last month, don’t fret because March is full of fun events! Join us for a movie/games/potluck night this Saturday and sign up for our Rocky Mountain getaway trip!

Cheers,

Flora

How was your weekend?

Hi everyone,

I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend! I did, this weekend was a very relaxed weekend for me! I went to the Art Gallery,which was very interesting! Furthermore I did some shopping in Robson Street. I had dinner with some friends, and we made lots of funny pictures in the city of Vancouver. As you can see on the picture below! Next weekend I am planning to snowboard again, I probably go to Whistler!


Felix and many INTERNeX candidates were this weekend in Lake Louise, tonight they will be back in Vancouver! I hope they had a great time and very soon Felix will post a Lake Louise Review!

How was your weekend? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

How was your weekend?

Hey guys out there,

This weekend was just great. I don’t know where to start but I guess the beginning is good 🙂

I planed to go with some friends to Kelowna, BC where we wanted to have a great long weekend. But unfortunately we haven’t planed our weekend with the weather stations. Half way to Kelowna, we came into a huge snow storm and everything stopped until the police told the highway is closed and we have to go back… so we decided to go all the way back to Vancouver and have our great weekend there, which we definitely did 😉

On Saturday then, we went skiing for the first time of the season, on Cypress Mountain, and it was gorgeous! We rented skis in Vancouver Downtown and as we arrived at Cypress Mountain, we skied for 3 1/2 hours in a row… just perfect!

On Sunday we took a ride to Seattle to go see the city and of course…Shopping! 😉 on our way back we also went to a huge Outlet and arrived after waiting nearly one hour at the Canadian border safe and tired at home 🙂

Just again an amazing weekend in Canada!

 

So I hope you had a great weekend as well! How was it?

 

Cheers,

Felix
