New ‘Kids’ on the Blog

Half the week is already over and once again it’s finally the day of Pub-Night.
And Wednesday, also means you get to meet the new INTERNeXer, that joined us at the beginning of this week.

And this week you might have to take some notes, as we got 5(!!!) new people joining. 
Therefore lets not loose anymore time and let’s talk about our Newbies! As a group, I would like to refer to them as “the Islanders” (I’ll explain that later on).

The bright smiling sunshine on the right hand side, is called Anton. Anton is 19 years old and from Germany. He actually made a very brave step moving from a small village to our beautiful Vancouver, intending to find out if he is made for the city life. And yes, some of you be like “Vancouver isn’t even that big”. But as a person moving here from a small village myself, I absolutely get it. And I think it is quite a decision to make. So welcome from one ‘villager’ to another. I hope you will have a wonderful time here and you will hopefully fall in love with the city, as fast as we did.

Moving on to Maria. With her sweet 18 years, she is the youngest one out of the Islanders. Luckily, tonight, your age won’t stop you from meeting the INTERNeXer, as the Two Parrots welcome minors as well. Maria was looking for an english speaking country to improve her language skills. Because of a family recommendation she decided to come to Vancouver and from here, this lady is ready to go on some adventures, like traveling to Seattle and doing Bungee Jumping (soo cool!).  

Next one in line is Lina. She has been dreaming of this for such a long time. But because of university and life always getting in her way, she wasn’t able to do it earlier than now. But hey, I am actually very glad it worked out this exact way. Otherwise we might have never met you, so let’s call it faith. Plus she got to finish her masters in psychology, which is (just after meeting us) also a pretty good turnout :P. She also mentioned, that she is here to meet new people and is open to new experiences – well Lina, it seems like you are a perfect fit to our group then :).
 
The young men on her left hand side is Felix and yes you might have guessed it – he is also from Germany. And I get the feeling, that we can learn a lot from this one, as he proved to have a very creative mindset! The reason why Felix is here, is everything but one of the regular stories you get to hear.
As we all have had a job interview before, we know the struggle that comes with it.  Technically it’s all about presenting your best possible self and Felix here, is clearly a master in that! As he got asked why is only applying for the job in 2020 and not 2019, he clearly couldn’t admit that he might have missed the time slot for it. So mentioning a planned gap-year seemed like the perfect excuse instead. And once it was said, he was being a men of his word, got in a plane and now joined the INTERNeX gang for a practicum! Felix is very interested in sports and can’t wait to see the Super Bowl. I promise you, you will meet our enthusiasts tonight, that will be very happy to watch it with you! 
Last but not least is Theresa. Guess where she is from? … Ha, got ya – she is from Austria. Anyways Theresa here also just graduated and is now gaining some practical experiences here in beautiful British Columbia. Theresa didn’t really feel like working yet, so she said goodbye to her previous job and to Austria, packed her bag and made her way across the ocean to have an incredible time here. And fun fact, I think she has the coolest voice ever! I am sorry, for pointing that out like this, but I love it!

Anyways as we where sitting together getting to know each other, it turned out all of these guys have Vancouver Island on their bucket list. As this is a classic, please pass on helpful tipps and tricks as you have already been there or simply sign up to the adventure-bus of the ‘islanders’ to see Vancouver Island together with them.
However now that the snow is gone, there won’t be anything getting in the way to get together at tonights Pub-Night at the Two Parrots.
To the Newbies: don’t be shy, everybody is already very excited to meet you! 
Have a wonderful day/night. 
See you soon, 
Cheers,

New “Kids” on the Blog!

New Year. New Week. New “Kids”!
So let’s send out a warm welcome to the first 4 candidates of 2020.
Yes 4 candidates, a fantastic start into the year, even if we are still trying to get over the heartbreaking goodbyes we had to face just before and after Christmas.
Heads up to the future:

8ca54f1d-eab8-4e40-b3d5-f4da7ff71410Starting of with our lovely Laura here (first on the right hand side), 24 years old and from Germany. Laura is taking part in the Practicum Program, but not just in any placement … nooo, all I am saying is, it’s got a lot to do with chocolate! So besides being everyones new best friend, Laura is planing on keeping herself busy and get to see as much as possible. In fact she already spent the last 5 months in Ottawa, so almost a Canada expert I’d say! So now the Rocky Mountains, Vancouver Island and many more are still on her bucket list. And rumours occur she is still looking for some travel companions ;-). 

Next up are the twins. Okay well, maybe not exactly twins, maybe not even siblings, or even the same age – but I like it, so I’d say we just go with it.
Nathalie and Victoria are also from Germany and came here to take part in the Practicum program as well. These two power-ladies came here together and are gonna stay for the next three months. Also they are working in the same placement which is a child development centre. (Do you see now where I am coming from?! :P). Victoria has actually been here in our beautiful Vancouver before, but as 3 days just weren’t enough (I think we all agree on that with you Victoria), she decided that she had to come back. I am glad your plans have worked out ;-).
From there these two are planning on doing some travelling and already have a very exciting trip planned to Hawaii at the end of their stay … I am very very jealous! So if you guys find some space in your luggage, I’d be more than happy to squeeze in!

To complete the German squad of the week, we’ve got Christian joining us as well. He is one of our Work&Travelers and therefore obviously up for facing some great adventures.
Christian got inspired by his French-teacher to come and visit this beautiful country, oh yeah right he also speaks French, as he has lived there in the past 3 months. Very impressive! So if you are lucky, you might get to catch up with your french skills in the upcoming 5 months. Unfortunately after that he will have to go back to Germany to go to University. 

Therefore guys, don’t loose any time and meet these 4 fantastic newbies at tonights Pub-Night at the La Casita.
Same as always – 7pm, two pieces of ID and minors are welcome! 

Can’t wait to see you ❤ 

Cheers,
