INTERNeX Canada: Jasmin’s Pictures

Today I would like to share Jasmin’s story and her beautiful pictures with you guys. Jasmin participated in the picture your life, INTERNeX Canucks Contest. By writing this story she won a prize!

My new home….

… is having the possibility to celebrate a Swiss Holiday (December 6th) baking “Grittibanze” (bread-men) and enjoy this particular evening with my host family and new friends.

My new school….

…. and my view out of the window is quiet interesting. But because I really like to go to school it is sometimes a little bit distracting :).

My Favorite place in Vancouver….

…. is relaxing in front of the Public Market at Londsdale quay. Sitting with a Bean Around the World coffee and enjoying the beautiful skyline is one of the greatest things you can do on a sunny day.

My Favorite Leisure Activity….

…. One of my favourite leisure activities is sitting in a Bean Around the World or JJ Bean, drinking a very good coffee and do people-watch. This only counts if it is raining. If it is nice weather I love to be in the nature. These forest are huge and the trees seem endless!!

I would like to thank Jasmin for participating in the contest, and for sharing her pictures and story with is! I hope Jasmin will enjoy the rest of her stay in the beautiful city of Vancouver.

Cheers Lydia,

Easter Long Weekend!

So the four-day-long weekend is approaching and I’m sure you guys are looking forward to a little time off…I am at least. I will be using this time to catch up on all my school work but my calender is filled with so many fun events I might just have to take at least one night off from work…maybe two. But I was browsing through our ECal and saw a few events around Canada that I thought might be of interest to you guys.

First I have the 13th Annual Showcase Showdown presented by Burton this Saturday April 3rd 2010. Held up in our very own Whistler up on Blackcomb Mountain. If you like to party up in the Nintendo Terrain Park then this is the event for you guys! This Showcase Showdown features a VANS Off the Wall Waffle Breakfast, Samsung Best Trick Contest, a Bar-B-Que on the Hill and the Showcase 20 year Anniversary Afterparty!! If you are interested in this event or want to find more events up in Whistler then visit their website

Secondly, the city of Calgary the CBI Health Hustle for Hunger 2010. Hosted this Sunday, April 4th 2010 at the Eau Claire Market. You can still participate or just watch this run/walk and all the proceeds raised from this event will be going to the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. All participants will get a free technical t-shirt with entry along with goodies from our sponsors. See their website for registration and/or event details

These are just some of the events occuring all around Canada. If you want to find an event in your area keep checking our ECal and/or facebook page and for more information on INTERNeX related events you can also feel free to contact us at the office
