How was your weekend?

“Lonely. I am so lonely. I have nobody …” dadadadaa. 🎶
Well, I am not that lonely, but still am the only PR-team member left now and I feel as sad as Akon in the song that I just got in your heads. 😉
But let me tell you about my weekend because it was actually not that lonely.

Friday was a great kick-off for the weekend: We finished work earlier but still stayed in the office to enjoy Nadine’s last hours there. We played some games and just chatted for a long time. When we finally managed to call it a day, we went on to BierCraft on Commercial Drive. With a group of around 9 people, we spend Nadine’s last evening in a relaxed, yet fun way. At around 1am we decided to head home. It was sad to say goodbye, but we all knew, that it would just be a goodbye for the moment – we will sure as hell meet again! 😀 – Yeah, Nadine, you signed up for this. ❤

Saturday was just a really calm day for me. I talked to a friend back home in Germany and started to get my stuff sorted and packed. Yeah, soon it’s also time for me to leave – but let’s not get into that right now. So, I did laundry, got my suitcase out of the closet and packed some first things. Basically, stuff that I won’t need for my last time here.

Nevertheless, 13 of you showed up and boarded the ferry at Horseshoe Bay with me! Thanks for showing up and enjoying this day. Once we arrived in Snug Cove, we had a short restroom break but started quickly after with our tour around the island. After 30-45 Minutes, I already heard some of you asking for a lunch-break, so I was happy when we finally arrived at the picnic spot. Being fed and ready to hike some more, we made our way around Killarney Lake, enjoyed the views and nature. 42499125010_6a0ac66ce2_nShortly after we finished the round trip around the lake we arrived back in Snug Cove and had to wait for the ferry. While waiting, we bought some locally produced ice-cream, which was just tasted amazingly good! Once we arrived back at Horseshoe Bay, we took the bus back home. I arrived at my place around 6.30pm and was dead and done. Even though we didn’t do much, I felt really exhausted. So, I just collapsed in my bed and called it a day.

I hope you had a good weekend, despite the grey weather. See you on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT at Mahony and Sons!

Time to say goodbye…

Today it’s my last day at the INTERNeX office and I will end my 18-week internship at INTERNeX. Also that’s gonna be my final blog and I want to thank everybody for this awesome time here in Vancouver. During my 18-week internship I did awesome trips and activities but of course I also learned a lot of things, which are useful for my studies back home. That’s why I want to say a big THANK YOU to Tim and Simon. And of course thank you to Alexandra, Ole and well how can I forget him CRAZY Alex, you guys made my days in the office 🙂 

During my time here in Vancouver I saw a lot’s of amazing places such as Whistler, the breathtaking Rockies, the surfer’s paradise Tofino and had an adventure trip to Chilliwack for White Water Rafting. Also the hike’s here around Vancouver are amazing, the Chief, Bowen Island and of course the Grouse Grind, which you have to do while you here in Vancouver.

It will be really strange to leave Vancouver, because right now it’s like a second home for me. All the amazing people I met here made this time one of my best expierences so far.  After my holidays in the USA I will start my last year at the Hochschule Munich but I’m motivated and ready to go for this last year and afterwards of course I start traveling to see more from the world.

I want to say thanks and good-bye to everyone who I met during my stay here, I had one of the best 18-weeks here, THANK YOU!! 

 

Goodbye, Auf wiedersehen, Servus, Pfi’a de 🙂 

Cheers,

Danie
