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: Picture of the week!

left to right: Rie, Ilse, Sandra, Dylan, Daniel

This photo was taken during our pub night at the Railway Club! To me, it represents the start of something new…like new friendships, new people, and new places. And before that night, I have never been to the Railway Club before but I really thought it was special. It had a different feel to it than most pubs I know…it felt more personal. So I guess, it was a new experience as well. But I am so happy I got to know and welcome more new members to our group 🙂

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Pub Night Review

Yesterday we all met in the fancy Cactus Club Café in Yaletown!

There were a lot of people and new faces! Which is always great because here in Vancouver everybody leaves but new people are always coming too! And a lot of people brought their own friends! The more people, the more fun!

The venue was really cool, with a chic decoration and they had really good cocktails! They have a good specials too so it wasn´t as much expensive as you can imagine when you entered there!

I ordered Sangria and was the first place in Vancouver that Sangria tasted like real Sangria! Yep! No more peach juice with white wine! The real Spanish Sangria exist in Vancouver!

It was the last pub night of our great PR INTERNeX intern Xenia! She has been here for a couple of months but we all miss her sooooo much! I really don´t know what I will do without her in the office and in general in Vancouver! I will miss you so much! Katie and Petra left too! Oh my gosh, The PR “team” will miss you all, because you are our team!!You are the team!!!

It is always grateful being with you guys! And seeing more and more people every week is great!

Thank you so much!

See you next week!Or maybe earlier!Why not?

Enjoy this fastantic sunny day!

Cheers!

To all INTERNeX candidates…Your support is needed!

Hi everybody!

I hope you are all enjoying your time in Canada!

We are really impressed by your great input, such as the report about the last Canucks game that Florian sent to us (thanks, Florian!). It is a pleasure for us to be part of your experience in Canada and we are glad that you also want to share it with the rest of the world!

As you might remember, INTERNeX recently uploaded a video of the Snowtubing event on youtube. We received a lot of positive feedback and want to continue shooting short clips about INTERNeX events and more importantly your experiences.

The INTERNeX family of candidates is continuously growing. Therefore we want to provide potential candidates with your opinion on INTERNeX, the program you are on and your time in Canada. The idea is basically to film testimonials of YOU! Our INTERNeX family. If you would like to share your experiences, be on camera and on our YouTube channel, please don’t hesitate to contact us at pr@internexcanada.com! It will help folks just like you who are interested in coming to Canada and following one of our programs to get a better understanding of what the internship, hospitality, volunteer or city placement program is about.

It will be a lot of fun to film the clips since the set will not be in the office. We will go outside and visit some nice locations of Vancouver. Maybe you have an idea where to go? What is your favorite place in this beautiful city? Maybe we can drop by your placement company and do the interview!

 

Let me know!

Cheers,

Ziska

Star Wars: In Concert coming to Canada!

5 years after the final episode, Star Wars is back!! Fans of the Star Wars movies can enjoy the music during Star Wars: In Concert. The tour, which started in October 2009, is finally coming to Canada! The Canadian Tour will start tonight at the General Motors Place in Vancouver and will go to places such as Edmonton, Calgary and London(ONT)!


Star Wars: In Concert is a unique event that combines John William’s unforgettable music, performed by a live symphony orchestra and chorus, with specially edited footage for all six Star Wars Films.  Actor Anthony Daniels, for the Star Wars fans better know as C-3PO, will introduce each segment of the two-hour show, guiding you through the Star Wars story in a fresh an exciting way. John William, the creator of the Star Wars music, won the best-original- score at the 1978 Academy Awards. He was also nominated for the same award for The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983).
“ We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “
Besides the concert, you can also enjoy an exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props, artifacts, production artworks and specially created behing-the-scenes videos from the LucasFilm Archives. Many of these pieces are leaving Skywalker Ranch for the first time. The exhibit features many classic fan favorit artifacts, as well as several new, never before seen items, such as:
–          Full costumes for Jedi Masters Kit Fisto and Plo Koon
–          Never before seen props from the films, including blasters and helmets from Coruscant, Tatooine and other iconic Star Wars locations.

Tickets are still available, simply click here and start your journey!

Head down under – Head to New Zealand!

The world we live in is a large and beautiful place. There are approximately 195 countries on earth, all offering different landscapes, cultures and languages. So, have you been exploring yet?  Maybe you’ve only been thinking about traveling, or maybe you’re currently planning your next move. But, if you’re searching for a destination where the landscape is green and the mountains soar as high as your dreams – you’re searching for New Zealand.

New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful landscape includes vast mountain chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiords and lush rainforests. Comparable in size and shape to Great Britain, Colorado or Japan, New Zealand has a population of only 4 million – making it one of the world’s least crowded countries. It is a haven for those seeking peace, rejuvenation and relaxation as well as a playground for thrill seekers and adventurers. A temperate climate with relatively small seasonal variation makes it an ideal year-round holiday destination.

Start planning now and you could be on your way to New Zealand in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup – the premier international rugby union competition. Canada, Australia, England, South Africa, USA, France, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Samoa, Fiji, and Tonga are just a few of the competing countries! This is the third largest sporting event in the world, behind the Olympics and the Soccer World Cup.

Introducing Manouk – PR Intern at INTERNeX!

Hi everybody,

My name is Manouk van den Heuvel and today is my first day working at INTERNeX! I am completing my internship in communications, therefore I will be working side-by-side with Laura to bring you guys lots of fun events and activities!

First let me introduce myself:

I’m 22 years old and come from the Netherlands. I normally live in The Hague, for those of you who don’t know where that is, it’s somewhere between Amsterdam and Rotterdam.  During my stay in Vancouver I will live in the staff house – it’s an exciting place to meet people from all around the world!  I am currently in my third year of University, studying a Bachelor Degree in Commercial Communication Management.

I arrived in Vancouver last week, just in time for the Barbecue Kick-Off! I’ve already met a few people and hope to meet many more at PuB NiGHTS and other INTERNeX events. Be sure to come out to PuB NiGHT on June 10 at The Blarney Stone – I would love to meet you!

Since I’ve arrived, the weather hasn’t been very nice. I can’t wait for the sun to come out so I can see some of the beautiful mountains! If you’re new to Vancouver as well, I’d love to check out some places like Stanley Park and Chinatown, so let me know if you would like to meet up.

That’s all for now guys!

Manouk
