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!

INTERNeX Canada: Trip to Victoria

Hello everybody,

today’s post will hopefully put y’all in the mood for our big Victoria trip in the end of this month. Thinking that a few of you still may not be sure whether to sign up and come with us, I will give you a little overview of what you would be missing out on. And for all who already decided to join us: That’s where you will be going 🙂

Victoria – also called the “City of Gardens” or the “City of the Summer Asian Invasion” –  is the capital of British Columbia and located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, right off Canada’s Pacific coast. Its name itself is a tribute to the British Queen Victoria and it is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific North West. Therefore, the town is still defined by many historic buildings, as for example the British Columbia Parliament Building. These are located at the Inner Harbor and a ‘Must See’ for every tourist.

And of course, like more or less every other bigger American city, one of Victoria’s neighborhoods is Chinatown. However, the interesting thing about this part of town is: It is the second oldest Chinatown in North America after the one in San Francisco!

Besides these two details, we are planning to visit the Royal British Columbia Museum also located downtown. The museum includes three permanent galleries: modern history, natural history, and local First Nations’ history. It is supposed to be one of the most interesting educational places one can visit in B.C. So let’s find out.

Another highlight of the trip will be our tour to the Craigdarroch Castle. A Victorian-era Scottish Baronial mansion built in the late 1800s. Originally, it was constructed for a wealthy coal baron and the mansion has over 30 rooms, which are known for their luxurious design and furniture.

Last but not least, I want to mention Beacon Hill Park. The park itself is for recreational purposes and offers some beautiful shoreline trails, as well as the “Mile 0” of the famous Trans-Canada Highway. Also, as a little bird told us, if you know where it is THE of best place in town to get ice cream. And guess what? We know where! So imagine yourself strolling around, enjoying your ice cream, watching out at the Ocean… Still not wanna come with us??? Come on, give yourself a start. You can still register (and pay) at tomorrow’s PuB NiGHT or until the 20th at the INTERNeX office. We are waiting for you!

 

Best,

Annika
