Rockies Tour Guide: Practical information

Only 2 more nights till we are going to the Rockies! We have been giving you a lot of information over the last couple of weeks, so make sure to read our previous blog posts if you want to know more. This time we are giving you some practical information.

On Friday we are meeting at Tim Hortons at 6.45 AM. The bus will leave from there or from the other side of the road, but we will see that as soon as we get there. Please make sure to be on time, as the bus will leave at 7 AM. As we are not in charge of the tour we can’t make a whole bus wait if you are not on time.  However, if for some reason you are delayed, please contact us so we can share this with our tour guide.

INTERNeX is going to Whistler!

Sad that you missed out on our last trip to Kelowna or excited to go on another trip with the INTERNeX family? Then this trip to Whistler on the 25th of March is perfect for you!

20106059240_04203fb028_oWhistler is a must see in Canada! It is a beautiful city close to Vancouver. It is mainly known as a skiing and snowboarding resort. In 2010, Whistler even hosted some events of the Winter Olympics. We will not be able to go skiing or snowboarding, but there are a lot of other activities to do!

Our one day trip includes a sightseeing tour on the beautiful Sea to Sky Highway, a stop in Shannon Falls and a walking tour in Whistler Village. So make sure to take your camera with you on this trip. After the sightseeing tour we have some free time. You can choose to ride the peak 2 peak gondola on top of the mountains, which will give you a beautiful view over the city and the mountains. Or do you still have snowmobiling on your bucketlist? Then the Whistler day-trip is the perfect time for you to cross it off. You can also let your inner child free by doing some snow tubing in the tube park. Other activities are snowshoeing, dog sledding or sleigh riding and if you want to do something more extreme, try out bungee jumping or ziplining!

I18591095366_e91541873b_of you want to join the trip, sign up and pay in cash at the INTERNeX office or during PuB NiGHT before the 10th of March. The trip costs $50 including transportation and the sightseeing tour. All activities mentioned above are optional and are additional expenses. To stay updated, check out the Facebook event.

There are only limited spots available for the trip, so make sure to sign up now!

INTERNeX Canada: INTERNeX goes Victoria – Review Vol. 1

Hi everyone!

IMAG0497_1Last weekend we went from Vancouver to Victoria to have our monthly trip (September). It was a trip with many special moments and experiences. Everything was fine, but then something unexpected happened….And the trip turned into a little (but funny) mess.

And here are the most important headlines:

……Someone missed the start of the trip! But WHO? And WHY?!……

……Two nights in a 40-men-dormitory!……

……The beautiful British Columbia Museum……

……Craigdarroch Castle……

……It’s raining men, Hallelujah!……

……Cast Away 2: ”All ferries are cancelled. You can’t leave Victoria today” – OH NO?!……

If you want to read more about this crazy trip to Victoria, please read the upcoming extended Version of “INTERNeX goes Victoria – Review Vol. 2”

See you,
Tobias
