Highlights of the Month June 2014

With June beginning it is time to review the month of May and preview June and of course we do this in style… with a video.

We started the month of May with a visit to the extreme air park in Richmond. It was so much fun there if you did not had the chance to join us it is definitely worth going there! On the 9th of May it was time to do some relaxing activity with a visit to the cheesecake etc. Cheesecake etc is famous for their cheesecake and is only open at night. It is a really nice cozy restaurant and the cheesecake is delicious, afterwards we went to the Doolin’s for some drinks. In the mid of May we had our monthly overnight stay in Tofino. We went to Tofino for three days and had such a great time, we went surfing, whale watching, bear watching, kayaking and we had a little campfire near the hotel. After the Tofino it was time to go partying again in Vancouver with a Pub & Club night at The Pint.

In June we will go White Water Rafting in Chilliwack with Lee. In the second weekend we will go for a bike ride around Stanley Park and have nice little rest at one of the beaches. On the 21st of June it is time to support our German soccer team with some drinks and food. We will end the month of June with a Pub & Club night were we also sadly have to see goodbye to Daniela, so make sure you are there! And of course we will have our weekly pub nights on Wednesday’s so keep your eyes out on Facebook.

 

We hope you enjoyed May and will enjoy June, see you at the activities!

Pub Night Review

Yesterday was our favorite day of the week again, which does not include Saturday and Sunday of course. We had again a super nice pub night at the Cambie.

We actually planned to have our pub night at the beach, but since it was pretty windy outside we decide to go to the Cambie instead. The Cambie is nice pub, which has long tables and you can even sit outside! As usually our pub night started at 7pm. We were lucky enough the get one of the tables outside, so we could enjoy the sun a little longer. We ordered some food and drinks, I definitely recommend the burgers there however this time I went for a caesar salad which is also delicious. After a while it got a chilly outside so we went inside to continue to Pub Night.

We had a lot of laughs last night and we are all exiting for the summer months and the fun stuff you can do while you are here in the summer. For those we do not join us this weekend to the rafting trip, we would recommend you to go for a hike near Vancouver, maybe Grouse Grind?, and afterwards you can relax on the beach. Or maybe rent a bike for a day and go around Stanley park and bring some lunch so you can have a little break on one of the nice beaches.

We hope you enjoyed the Pub Night yesterday and we will see you on the Rafting Trip

INTERNeX goes White Water Rafting

With the Rockies behind us and Tofino upcoming, we decided to do a bit more action in June. And what is better than going White Water Rafting in Chilliwack with the best guide there is, the one and only Lee! 

Chilliwack is a 90 minutes drive from Vancouver and it’s a tourism destination, which is famous of course for the best spot in British Columbia to do Rafting. INTERNeX goes on the 7th till the 8th of June to this awesome adventure. What is included in this trip?

We will make our way to Chilliwack on Saturday the 7th of June at around 2pm with a Van, which Lee is driving. We will spend the day in Chilliwack and on Sunday morning we will do White Water Rafting. We will arriving in Vancouver at around 6:30pm on Sunday. As we had to rent a Van for this trip, the space in the Van is of course limited. So we can only take 12 people with us, that’s why the trip is on the “FIRST PAY, FIRST SERVE” basis. So make sure that you get a spot and pay for the trip asap. The amazing White Water Rafting Trip cost $220 for INTERNeX-members, for NON-INTERNex-members $230. Please keep in mind that we are only accept cash and we only have 12 SEATS on the Van.

We hope you stay tuned for the next Blog Post about the White Water Rafing 🙂

INTERNeX Canada: Jelle says ‘Goodbye friends and Vancouver..’

Well, that’s it.. Today I will end my 15-week internship at INTERNeX. In my final blog I want to look back and thank everybody for this awesome time.

I still remember the first week in the beginning of May.. I just bought my bike and with a big jetlag I took off for my first day at the office. It was a bit confusing to hear all your upcoming tasks when you are half asleep ;). But absolutely everyone that works here gave me a really nice welcome! I was overwhelmed by the friendly attitude of Canadians and my colleagues.

I will remember this stay for many, many years. We did so much fun stuff together! Our weekly pub nights, the cool trips/events in the weekends, the water rafting in Chilliwack, aaaaand of course the big Rocky Mountains trip! That was just: WOW..

To Tim and all my colleagues at INTERNeX, thanks for making my stay so comfortable, amazing, fun and AWESOME! I learned so much about working with people from a different culture. I’m happy that INTERNeX gave me this opportunity. It’s a lifetime experience.

It will be a bit strange to leave Vancouver Friday morning. Right now this city feels like a second home for me.. After my holidays in the USA I will start my third year at Tio University. No more weekly pub nights and big trips. Instead of that I will continue my international tourism education.. But I’m motivated and ready to go for this last year!

At last I want to give a big thanks, hug and goodbye to everyone that I met during my stay, and that gave me one of my best summers ever, thank you!!

Goodbye, Auf wiedersehen, Adiós, Farvel, Adjö, Arrivederci, Tot ziens

Cheers.
