Review: PuB NiGHT @ The Pint

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was great! Thank you all for coming! Most of us were still recovering from New Years Eve and going back to work again, but it was lots of fun.

The Pint is a pub in Downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means fullsizeoutput_19c4that their wings in 40 different ways are only $4.50. There are also a lot of TV screens to watch sports and a downstairs area with a pool table.

In the beginning of some of us watched the Canucks game on the screens in the pub and others were playing some pool. It was fun to talk about the amazing New Years Eve we had and hear all the stories. The night ended earlier than other nights because of the fact that most of us were still tired from New Years.

I had a great evening and I hope you all did too! See you next week!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the whole INTERNeX Team! The office was closed during and in-between Christmas and New Years. Everyone from the INTERNeX team had an amazing Christmas and New Years Eve. We hope you did to!

Also the INTERNeX Family in Vancouver had a few great days together! They had dinner together on Christmas Eve, which I was not able to attend. But hearing the stories they had a great Danish Christmas Dinner and Secret Santa. The INTERNeX Family also celebrated New Years Eve together; it was an amazing evening and night with a great dinner and a great game. Thank you for a great start of 2017!

Highlights of the Year 2016: October, November and December

Last but not least the fourth quarter of 2016. I hope you guys had as much fun as I had looking back on all the things we did!

October

October started of with a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium and a great Thanksgiving dinner at Ten Ten Tapas. We also had a lot of PuB NiGHTS organized. And a special night for Halloween.

October.jpgThe weekend trip of October was a trip to the Rocky Mountains. During this trip we went to the National Parks Jasper and Banff. We also went to Lake Louise, Mount Robson and Colombia Ice Field. We also enjoyed a night out in Banff and enjoyed a night at our Mountain View Cabins with a BBQ party around the bonfire. It was a great trip!

Also that weekend we went to Grouse Mountain for the ones that stayed in Vancouver. We did a great hike on the Grouse Grind and enjoyed the amazing view.

November

In November we started of with great PuB NiGHTs. We also went to CandyTown in November. It was raining a lot but still lots of fun to enjoy the Christmas spirit already!

In the last week of November a big group of Scandinavians were coming for a few days. The first day was full with orientations and of course a PuB NiGHT. The second day a Stanley Park Tour was planned. And on the last night we had a PuB NiGHT planned in the Blarney Stone. It was a great week!

December 

December was filled with PuB NiGHTs. We had lots of fun at the Met and the Bimini.christmas

On the third Wednesday of December we had a Christmas Party. We first went out for dinner at the Spaghetti Factory, which was great! When we all finished our dinner, we started with Secret Santa, which was lots of fun too! After the dinner and Secret Santa some of us went to the Met to end the night with some karaoke!

A big thank you to Sara, Andreas and Janel for organizing the PuB NiGHTS, events and trips in these months!

We hope you all will have a great New Years Eve and an even greater 2017!

HIGHLIGHTS REVIEW OF THE YEAR 2015: October, November, December

OCTOBER

Last but not least the fourth quarter of 2015. I hope you guys had as much fun as I had looking back on all the awesome things we did.

October started with our amazing overnight trip to Whistler with a group of 22 people. whistlerThe trip was the perfect opportunity to get to know everyone better and I must say that those people are just amazing. Therefore it’s no surprise that we had an awesome time in Whistler with a lot of fun. Additionally we were pretty lucky with the weather.
The sun was shining the entire weekend. On Saturday and Sunday most people did zip lining, some did bungee jumping and some just explored the amazing view on top of the mountains when hiking. We also had two birthdays to celebrate that means we had a good excuse to party.

Canadian Thanksgiving, one of the most famous holidays is celebrated at the second Monday in October. It is similar to the English and European Harvest festival, symbolizing people’s gratitude for everything given by nature or God that sustains them. ThanksgivingdinnerWhile the actual Thanksgiving holiday is on a Monday, Canadians may gather for their Thanksgiving Dinner on any day during the long weekend. The traditional dish for the Thanksgiving dinner is roasted turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pie.In celebration of the Canadian Thanksgiving the INTERNeX group certainly had a Thanksgiving Dinner. We spent a lovely evening on top of Vancouver’s roof. While enjoying our Dinner at the revolving restaurant in Robson Street we had an incredible view down on Vancouver.

 

NOVEMBER

 
In November 11 Canada  ‘celebrated’  Remembrance Day. We remember soldiers fallen in the line of duty, especially those during World War I and World War II. The date and the time on which the festivities are taking place certainly have a special meaning: The hostilities of World War I ended officially on the eleventh day of November 1918, in the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour. seattle space needleSo, every year at that time is at least one minute of silence to honor all those, we need to remember. Connected to this day is also the custom of wearing a red poppy the weeks leading up to the eleventh of November. This symbol evolved due to the popularity of a poem written by a Canadian writer and soldier John McCrae, In Flanders Fields. It is one of the most famous pieces of Canadian literature and represents the emotions connected to Remembrance Day.

 

We could also cross Seattle off our to-do list since we crossed the border to the States for a day trip to Seattle. As you can see on the photo we had amazing weather! And not only the weather was good. We had super yummy fresh fish at Pike Place Market and quite a lot to explore in downtown Seattle.

 
DECEMBER

Since a bunch of people will be here for Christmas we decided to enjoyed a nice Christmas Dinner together in association with doing Secret Santa. Besides that we also didn’t miss the chance attending at the annual Santa Claus Parade. We went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park seeing the hundreds of thousands of lights, the ‘German” Christmas Market and to the Bright Nights in Stanley Park23532018931_e42a616597_o

December and also 2015 are slowly coming to an end as well as my practicum here at INTERNeX. No reason for freaking out, being sad or becoming desperate though! Vivien, one of our candidates is taking over and is managing and organizing a couple of pretty cool events and trips for January and February. Of course we also won’t leave you in the lurch on New Years Eve!

For all the upcoming events check out our Facebook page and stay turned on our social media sites.

The only thing left to say is: HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope everyone will have a good start in the New Year 2016! Wish you all the best.

New Year’s Eve Special

New Year and especially New Year’s Eve is the date that marks the ending of the old and the beginning of the new year.

The last day of the year, so New Year’s Eve, is often celebrated with socializing, celebrations, dancing, eating, drinking and watching fireworks. Generally, most of these activities last way past midnight. In Canada, the festivities vary regionally but in general, there are special TV events, parades, sporting events and sometimes public service specials for the day or the late celebration hours. One famous show on New Year’s Eve is ‘Year of the Farce’, featuring sketches about major events and news of the year.

If you are still looking for ideas what to do and where to go, check out this website and you might be lucky…

Other than that the only thing left to say is: Happy new year and start off well into 2014!!!

Norqauy Mountain!

If you are an INTERNeX Candidate at Banff, you don’t want to miss this! Norquay Mountain helps Banff visitors celebrating the coming New Year with a torchlight parade down the ski mountain at New Years Eve. The parade takes place at 8 p.m. off the North American Chair and can be seen from town.

And another great thing! This Season the Norquay Mountain will celebrate their 85th anniversary. This means it is the oldest resort in North America. The first Thursday of every month in January, February and March they will be selling adult day passes for only .85 cents in celebration of their anniversary.

Have fun!
