How was your weekend?

It’s Monday, so sadly the weekend is over. I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed the extra day off. Here is a little recap of what happened over the weekend.

Despite the weather forecast, it was great weather on Saturday and Sunday. So on Saturday, a few of us met up to ride bikes in Stanley Park. Once we got our cruisers, we were on our way. We followed the bike path around the park by the seawall. Thus, we had spectacular views the whole time. Further, we were able to see the water planes take off, which was quite impressive. We stopped a few times to take some nice pictures. One of our first stops was the Brockton Point Lighthouse.

After a while we split up as some wanted to make more stops and also hung around at some spots and enjoyed the view. Some of us continued with the bike ride. We saw Lions Gate Bridge, which leads to North and West Vancouver. We also saw the Girl in a Wetsuit, which is a statue on a rock out in the water. Afterwards, we passed the amazing beaches the park has to offer. At Third Beach we had a break to have some ice cream. Towards the end of our bike ride, we passed by the Lost Lagoon, and there were a lot of cute baby geese. Overall, it was a fun and cool way to explore the park. Thanks to everyone who came and joined us!

I actually enjoyed Stanley Park so much, that I went there the next day again. But this time I walked, which was a bit more relaxing. On Sunday, I also explored the center of Stanley Park. It was really neat and remarkable to see, how much nature there is, considering that we are in a big city.

Stanley Park is beautiful and has so much to offer. I highly recommend visiting the park, if you have not done so yet. Especially, if you want to get away form the stress of the city,  it’s the prefect place to relax.

Have a good day!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Mahony and Sons

What’s up peeps! It is a beautiful day here in Vancouver and it is time to try remembering what happened last night at our PuB NiGHT. In few words: it was a long night with a lot of people.

img_20190327_205948.jpg

Night started at a pub called Mahoney and Sons. It is located at False Greek, at Stamps Landing and the view across the water to downtown is so beautiful. There was almost 25 people altogether and our tables were getting crowded. I was glad to see so many new faces at the pub night and everyone were making some new friends once again. We also joined the trivia night, a bit late tho, but it did not really matter since we were not that good at knowing the answers. We did got couple of them right!

We also had a reason to celebrate yesterday since it was Sara’s birthday! The waiters brought a piece of cake and ice cream for her and we also bought her the most disgusting shots the bar has to offer. You can guess which part of the present she appreciated more. Once more, Happy Birthday Sara!

Surprise surprise the night continued after Mahony and Sons. Some of us felt like the night was not over and we headed to a country club called the Yale. It was a pretty quiet last night but we didn’t mind. We had our own gang to create a party with. It was nice to play some pool because usually the club is so crowded that you don’t really have a chance to do that. I also tried riding the rodeo bull they have at the club and lets just say that I really need some more practice with that.

Big thanks to everyone who showed up, I had a great time with all of you!

On Sunday we are going to have a fun night playing laser tag. Remember to check the Facebook event for more details.

INTERNeX Explorer Ep4 – 2017 behind the scenes

The fourth episode is already online for a week again, so we wanted to give you a little peak behind the scenes. It gets easier and easier every time. Since I now know how to make the scripts, do the filming, the voice-overs and editing.

April was the month of the big Rockies trip. Since we always make after movies of the trips we do, I also needed to develop a video of the Rockies. This was a rough part for me to do, because there was so much material and we had so many great moments there. It makes it hard to choose what material you want to feature in the episode. So once I was done there was a video of about 3 minutes, which is way too long. With a little pain in my heart I started deleting and cutting scenes. I hope it still captures the experience we had in the Rockies and you like it.

Another challenge was that Danielle was not here for filming since her family was visiting her, which is amazing of course! When I was writing the scripts I didn’t realise this though, so I just made a script for her. When I found out she wasn’t here we had to change fast, which meant I was suddenly in front of the camera. So in this episode you may see my face quite a lot.

On the other hand I had so much fun making this video again. Especially wheninternexexplorerapril I had to go on a little fieldtrip in North Vancouver with Iris. After taking the sea bus we first decided to have some ice cream, because you can’t film on an empty stomach. Besides that it was such a beautiful day, which made filming and walking around not a problem at all. We took a little advantage of it and had some lunch outside in the sun. It probably was the best “office-day” of the entire month, especially because when we got back Danielle’s boyfriend arrived and we went to the Lamplighter with all the colleagues to celebrate.

If you haven’ t seen the episode yet, you can see the video below.

Hope to see you all in The Pint tomorrow!

Smart Saver

This week with our smart saver, we’re going with great food again!

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for those who are not exactly early risers and don’t want to prepare their own stuff, we have found a super cheap offer. Subway is offering a $3 Breakfast Combo with a 6-inch breakfast sub and a coffee.

The Au Petit Cafe is a vietnamese restaurant, but offer $5 French-style sandwiches. Also their vietnamese food is pretty cheap. If you want to have a nice dinner with friends go to the La Taqueria. They’re offering tacos (which are awesome to share) for $2 (veggie) and $2.50 (beef). Check also out Wally’s Burger, their burgers are great, and huge! And the Deluxe Wally Burger, Wally Burger and Mushroom Swiss Burger are all $5 or less. But never forget the great “all food for $4.95” restaurants we have here in Vancouver. Those are the two different locations of the famous Warehouse and the dime, near Commercial Broadway. To be honest you should not eat anywhere else, their food is awesome and SO CHEAP, and they don’t only serve burgers and mac’n cheese but also healthy things from salads to quinoa. And they even make its cheaper! The dime offers 25ct wings on wednesdays (i’ve tried them, they’re delish!!) and at the famous warehouse they’re only 15ct! They also do an “all you can eat tacos tuesday” for $6.99.     So what are you waiting for?

Of course you need some refreshing dessert after this great meal. To save money why don’t you just make yourself an ice lolly out of you favourite juice or smoothy. You just need a small stick, fill your juice in a glass or even ice cube forms, put the stick in, freeze it and you have great ice cream which is nearly for free!

Hope all of you had a great weekend, enjoy the rest of your sunday and your day off tomorrow. You can sign up for our trip to the rockies until tuesday!

Picnic at the Beach

This weekend is going to be hot. The weather is forecasted up to 25 degrees, so get your summer clothes out and join us for a beautiful day on the beach!

Since the sun will come out we decide to have a picnic on the beach. The idea is kinda the same as our International Dinner, everyone brings some food along and we can have a big picnic party. Of course this time it does not has to be anything typical from your country.

We will meet at 2pm on the Kitsilano beach at the boathouse, from there we will find a nice spot on the beach for our picnic. If you are coming later, you can just give us a call or stroll along the beach and you will find us!
We can also make a stop at one of the five ice-cream shops, one even serves frozen yoghurt, in Kits or for some smoothies.

We hope to see you at the beach

INTERNeX Highlights of March 2014

We are about to launch our second Highlights of the Month video, be prepared for the best 2 minutes of your day. In the video we will talk about what we did in March and what we are going to do in April.

In March we had five fun activities planned for you. The first weekend in March we went for a two-days trip to Whistler, were we had an amazing time. Everyone could do what they wanted, bungee jumping, zip trekking, snow tubing and of course skiing or boarding. We made dinner together in the hotel and went to town afterwards for a crazy party. On the 14th of March we went to a Giants Game, many went for the first time. It was a great match with some fights, unfortunately the Giants lost 6-5.  On Monday 17th of March it was St. Patricks Day and we went out for green beer and celebrate st. Patricks Day. On Saturday 22nd we went to La Casita for a INTERNeX family dinner. We ordered Mexican food, sangrias and margaritas. Afterwards some of us went to the Cambie. On the last weekend of March we wanted to go to an Ice cream tasting but ended up going for coffee and cheesecake, because the weather was really shitty.

In April we will have our first international dinner at the office were everyone brings some traditional food from there home country. On the second sunday of April we will go to FlyOver Canada for an impressive 4D experience and to learn more about Canada. And than it is finally time for the rockies trip on the easter weekend! We, here at INTERNeX, are so stoked to go up there with you guys! On friday after the rockies we will have a after party to talk about the rockies, see the pictures and to meet up with the candidates which stayed in Vancouver.

 

We hope you enjoyed our little video and tell us what you would like to do in upcoming months!
