How was your weekend?

Monday. Back to normal life. Half asleep going to work. Looking back at an amazing weekend. So many adventures done, so many memories made. If you want to know everything I did this weekend, keep reading and you will find out.

My weekend started Friday. After we finished our work at the office, we ate some tacos and went to the BC Place Stadium to watch the football game BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes. Everything I expected from a football game became true. There were big sacks of popcorn, cheerleaders, a mascot, lottery, commercials. Exactly as how we know it from the movies. It was really fun to see and experience a real North-American sport like this. Although we didn’t know the rules, it was real fun to watch the game.

The next morning my alarm went off way too early. We met at 8 am at the airport to pickup two cars and drove to Joffre Lake. After 4 hours driving (because of a cycling event on the road) we arrived at the Joffre Lake Provincial Park. After 5 minutes of hiking, we already saw our first lake. We made some pictures and went to the second lake. After an hour climbing over rocks, walking up stairs and a few picture moments we arrived at the second lake. This one was even more beautiful. After another 30 minutes of hiking over bridges and along a waterfall we arrived at the last lake. Amazing to see how beautiful Canada can be. We did our last photoshoot and hiked all the way back back to the car. After 3 hours driving back to Vancouver, I ate something and made myself ready to go out in the Bourbon. After a couple dances and drinks we went to the Cambie Bar were we ended this long day.

Good morning Vancouver, Sunday arrived. Time to go to the Vancouver Street Food Festival. After yesterday, I walked around like a zombie to search for some coffee to get awake. None of the food trucks were selling coffee. When I finally found some coffee, the Street Food Festival could begin. We ate a lot of nice food and listened to the cover band that was playing some nice music. After a while we got ourselves an airbrush tattoo and the festival was already near its end. I decided to go home and have a good night sleep. I hope your weekend was as fun as my weekend and I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT on Wednesday.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

A Secret place to discover

Hi everyone! How is your Friday going? Maybe, thinking in the weekend? Probably yes.

Today I want to tell you about one awesome place that Mercedes and I discovered yesterday. We were looking for a place to eat and suddenly we saw a little hidden place between two supermarkets: London Drugs and Nesters Market (Abbott St with Hastings St).

It’s a little square with picnic tables to eat and take a rest, and a basketball zone. Very lighting and comfortable. Have a look at the pictures and judge by yourselves!

Vancouver has a large amount of hidden places, but you are lucky, we are here to discover them for you.

Shhhh!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Erik went all out with his shorts and flip flops -I applaud you, sir!

Out of all of the pub nights and trips I have organized and attended, probably the most memorable event for me was last Friday.  We were all at the Morrissey pub on Granville street. It was such a fun night with everyone, I thought. Fun…and also very special.

It was actually different from our usual pub and club nights, because not only was it a Hawaiian theme, but also because Tim and our company partners from Denmark came to join us! It was so much fun to see every one enjoying their time, drinking beers, and smiling. I always know Morrissey is a great place for us!

Cheers to tequila shots!!!

As we were sitting at the pub though, I noticed people were taking turns and disappearing for a good five to ten minutes. Hmmm very interesting, I thought. When I asked where they were going, they said they needed to go to the washroom….that must have been a very long washroom break I must say. But later I found out why. My themed pub and club night turned into a my surprise goodbye party! Ilse presented me with a photo scrapbook with everyone’s comments in it. I was so caught off guard that I didn’t know how to react. I think that part of the night is what made it so special for me.

group photo!

Then after, we made our way to VENUE! Enough being emotional because we had to go party it up and dance the night away at the club! Even Joan and Maria joined us to buy everyone a round of tequila shots! It was very very sweet of them and I’m sure all of us really appreciated it (not going to say who 😉 )! Overall it was such a successful, emotional, hilarious, and incredible night!

Thank you everyone for coming out that night and celebrating!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Christmas Photo Contest Winner!

Are you enjoying the snow outside? It makes the city look amazing and gives that Christmas feeling, but the downside is that it takes twice as long to go anywhere, especially if you are driving.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in photos of their version of Christmas in Vancouver. It was a very tough choice… but CONGRATULATIONS to Torben!

He went looking for Santa, as you do during Christmas, and found him! We love all the beautiful colours in this picture and Torben looks like he is ready for winter to come.

Go out and enjoy your 2 sets of HP Ski or Snowboard Rental in Whistler! (Value of $120).

We loved Tamara‘s photo as well. Since she is from Germany, the Christmas Market made her feel like she is home even though she is miles away.

Tamara said, “I got to look at all the German Christmas decorations, eat some German Christmas treats and got to drink our yummy and well-missed “Glühwein” ( I am holding a cup of it in my hand). How can you feel more like home for the family celebration while you are abroad?”

Well said, Tamara. Happy holidays everyone!

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX NAFSA Reception (Class of 2011) – Thank you all for coming!

Yesterday the International Networking Event from INTERNeX took place at the Blarney Stone in Vancouver, Canada. It started at 8 pm and we stayed until late. Some of the guests were there earlier to watch the Vancouver Canucks vs Boston playing in first game of the Stanley Cup Finals. Because of the game there was already a great atmosphere before the event even started.

We had volunteers greeting our guests at the entrance and if you preregistered, you got a badge with your own name and personal QR-code. After that you were ready to go to our Photobooth, here we took photos for the INTERNeX Class of 2011 Yearbook, which will be online soon!

We had an Irish band, a great DJ, a host and showmaster to entertain everybody the whole evening. We also organized a Schoolbus to bring people from several place to our event. After all we had a great evening and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Thank you all for coming!

Photos will be published soon at the INTERNeX Flickr Page.

Regards,

The INTERNeX Team
