Rockies Trip Spring Review II

The second morning was another early morning, we had breakfast at 7:45 and hat to be in the bus at 8:15. Too bad for our German boyband that they were just seconds too late, lucky for us that we did not have to sing. No worries the boyband did a great job in singing “Mamor Stein und Eisen bricht” and got some back up from the other Germans in the bus.

Our first stop of the day was at Mount Robson, the highest point in the Rockies and the second highest peak in British Columbia. We were luckily to see the top of the mountain for a couple of minutes before it disappeared in the clouds again. We shot some nice pictures and headed towards Jasper for a lunch break.

Jasper is a nice town, which get really crowed in the summer because it is so close to all the outdoor activities. Some of us stopped in the grocery store to get some food, others went into to a restaurant or walked down to Subway. After a short break and enjoying the sunshine it was time to get into to bus again and drive to our next stop.

The next stop was at the Athabasca Falls. This waterfall is not known because of its heights, but it is known for its force du to the large quantity of water falling into the gorge. It was a stunning view, especially the color of the water was very picturesque. After walking around the fall and seeing it form all different point we had to get back to the bus to drive to the Columbia Icefield.

The Columbia Icefield is one of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle. We drove in a snow coach, which is especially made for this and there are only 24 of those buses, up to a snow field were the wind was blowing crazy and it was freezing could and of course we all were again prepared super good with or sneaker and thin jackets on! It was a great experience, but I think everybody was happy when we were back in the bus again.

Our next stops were at the Waterfowl Lake and Bow Lake before we ended our day in Banff. In Banff we stayed at the Mt. Royal Hotel and some of us went out for dinner, pizza, McDonalds, Steaks and Ribs were on the menu. Afterwards we went out to a pub for some pre-drinks before we headed out to the Night Club for some crazy dancing.

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of the week!

Welcome to the HiGHLiGHTS episode 9!

This week we’ve made a review of the Khatsahlano festival in Kitsiliano. We spent a wonderful evening; the festival really was a success…a lot of concerts, shops, along the 4th avenue, during 10 blocks! We were so tired that Mercedes and Clara had to stop to take a break in the middle of the street. Lena took a picture for the picture of the week. Thanks a lot! 

And like every Wednesday, we choose the best pubs in Vancouver to hang out together and take a break in the middle of the week. This time we went to Malone’s in Pender, in Pender with Seymour Street, in Downtown. The place is pretty cool and the prices are ok.

And this week we made a special INTERNeX Explorer. We went to our partner’s from West Trek to ask them questions about the big Rocky Mountain trip in August. West Trek are the Rockies experts of Canada! We asked them with how many students they go each year, what the most special thing is in the Rocky Mountains and what the party bus is…

About the upcoming events, this weekend, we have a very cool plan for you. We will go to Deep Cove! It’s a beautiful area in the district of North Vancouver. It’s a very beautiful place to visit, we can go to the town, the bay, and after go to the mountains to hiking inside the rainforest. It isn’t pretty hard and you can enjoy an amazing view on the top and we can have a lunch there.

We hope you enjoy the following video and please, don’t forget to share, like and comment!

Cheers,

Clara.
