What to do on the weekend?

Yeah, weekend!!! Here’s some inspiration for you:

Next to the free outdoor cinemas, there is another opportunity to watch a show outside. “Theatre under the Stars” currently plays two different shows in Stanley Park. On the program for this weekend are “Cinderella” (Saturday) and “42nd Street” (Friday and Sunday). All plays begin at 8pm and the ticket prices start at $30. But here comes the special: Ask one member of the PR-Team and get to know how you can receive a discount!

IMG_20180719_231402Do you like Thai food? Then your place-to-be for this weekend is the Vancouver Art Gallery, North Plaza, where the 5th Thai Festival will take place. You can visit the culinary tent and enjoy some freshly cooked specialities. Or you can just sit back and watch Thai artists dancing. There will also be a marketplace and, for the first time this year, a fashion runway. Even more good news: the festival is accessible for free and takes place on Saturday and Sunday.

Our INTERNeX gang is going to explore Deep Cove on Saturday. After a small hike (not like last week, promised) to Quarry Rock, we can spend some time at the waterside and stroll through Gallant Avenue. If you want to join us on this day, meet us at 10.30am at Burrard Station.

The weather forecast predicts a hot Sunday. Time to relax, so that you can freshly start the new week.  Luckily, there are many beautiful beaches and parks in Vancouver. English Bay, Kitsilano, Jericho Beach, Queen Elizabeth Park… You name it, the choice is yours!

I cannot wait to hear all your weekend stories at our PuB NiGHT on Wednesday. Have fun!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual friday

This last two weeks INTERNeX office was especially busy welcoming all our newcomers! Panorama, Hemlock, Banff…was some of the destinations for our new candidates! We had the pleasure to meet them all before they start working in their resorts during the winter season. It’s amazing how brave they are! The most of the people are just nineteen! For some of them are their first time living abroad… for others, ski and snowboard are their passion so it’s the perfect excuse to come to Canada. Speaking personally with them I found them simply amazing! Studying in a sailing boat, diving in Australia, combating in Afghanistan… We shared short time together but they are all inspiring in their own way!

Definitely I love the “Viking” culture hihi of becoming bilingual and taking a gap year between high school and university! When you travel abroad and you meet so many new and diferent people you learn more about yourself and what you want for your future, what you want to study, what kind of profession would you like to have.

And I know of what I am speaking about, it’s really important to try and try again. If you think your dream will be, becoming a tour guide, just try  and you will realize if it’s your ideal profession or not, and it’s just an example, no matter what profession is your ideal, but until you don’t try and experiment for yourself you won’t know.

So parents, friends…before getting married with your University, College, try to understand who are you and what you really like for your future life, and when you’ll know just work hard to make that true, but it doesn’t make any sense just enroll whatever degree because you have to or because is what the people usually does. It doesn’t really matter to finish a degree with 22 or to finish YOUR degree with 26.

And if you don’t have any idea, travel, move to another city, learn another language, do an internship, go out of your “safety” circle, live new experiences… in some point you will know what to do next, and you will have enjoyed and learned during  the process.

Rockies People, thank you for sharing your time with us and being such an inspiration!

You will have the time of your lives up there! Enjoy!

Cheers,

Irene
