INTERNeX Canada: News /Fun Facts

Today I just want to share my personal opinion about this amazing city! Vancouver it´s the third best place to live in the world! Of course no one of us is stupid at all choosing Vancouver for doing our internship, working or improving our English here!

But why is Vancouver on the top ten?

I don´t know how is in your cities, but in Madrid it´s no possible at all sailing and in the same day skiing! But here you can do both or even change the skiing for a beach day! Awesome!

The first days that you are in Vancouver you think: Oh what a big city with all these skyscrapers but then once you have been living for a while, you realize how small Vancouver is! It looks like a big city but is like a village! It has the best things of the big cities: a lot of shops, cinemas, theaters, everything you can imagine… but also the best thing of living in a “village”: everything is near, you can walk everywhere and in a short period of time you will know the most of the people around you, your bus driver will be YOUR bus driver, you will know the most of your neighbors and you will find them everywhere! If you love the party you will see that the most of the people, even the international people like us that just stay for a while, are always the same! So this city is perfect to make friends! (And maybe not that good if you have enemies)

So apart of being a great city with a lot of beaches, mountains, it is also SO green! There are parks everywhere what are especially nice on this time of the year! Stanley Park is simply amazing! Every time I ´ve been there I think the same: it is not fair that not everybody can see it! I would love that all my friends to have the possibility of seeing and enjoying it!

Vancouver as you all can see, it is so international! There are a lot of Asiatic people, European, Latin Americans… A city plenty of international and young people, it´s like impossible don´t have fun!

And what do you think about Canadian people? Can be they been more polite? They have always nice words and they always try to help you!

Maybe it´s a personal opinion, but I find Vancouver one of the most interesting cities I´ve never been!  I understand that tons of people that just come here for a little period of time then fall in love with this city and want to stay forever. Absolutely comprehensible!!

If you have never been here and you have the possibility, come to Vancouver! If you are already here, enjoy every day like there is no tomorrow!

Let´s enjoy Vancouver!

Cheers,

Irene

Exposé of the week – Tofino

Tofino is a district of about 1,650 residents on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island. It was commanders Galiano and Valdés, who discovered the place and decided to name it in honour of Admiral Vicente Tofiño under whom Galiano had learned cartography.

Tofino is a popular tourist destination – especially in the summer where its population swells to many times its winter size. It mainly attracts surfers, campers and whale watchers, but also people who just want to be close to the nature.
It is not as busy in the winter time, but still manage to attract a good amount of people, who mainly comes here to watch storms on the water (which is quite a view!)

Just 45 kilometres north of Tofino, nearby Maquinna Marine Provincial Park, you can find the hot springs cove, which is located next to the sea. You can only reach the hot springs by boat or float plane, which makes it a very popular day-trip.
Tofino is also known for being one of the best places to spot whales. The best period for spotting whales is between March and April, where the migration of thousands of grey whales takes place. There are many hiking trips available as well and especially the trails along Long Beach are quite scenic.

From Vancouver the easiest way to get to Tofino is by boat from Horseshoebay to Nanaimo. From there you can either rent a car or go with the bus. Another way is to go by sea plane, which takes off from the harbour area of Vancouver. If you have not been to Tofino yet, now is the best time of the year!

Exposé of the week – Kelowna

Kelowna, a beautiful place located in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and also a place that you should definitely visit when you are in Vancouver. It counts a population of approximately 112,775 inhabitants. This city is famous for its warm temperatures in the summer and therefore also known as the Summer City. However the winters could be quite cold though. The city of Kelowna is one of the Canada’s most popular vacation destinations, because of the good weather.

No matter what time of the year, in Kelowna there is always something to do. Many of the touristic attractions you can visit them year round. If you like water sports – sailing, house boating, kayaking, rafting and fishing – you will love Kelowna! It offers a breath-taking landscape of lake, mountains and parks. The city counts a large number of cafés, bars, restaurants and vibrant nightclubs. For the people under us that like some culture, Kelowna offers a wide range of unique boutiques, heritage buildings and modern architecture, art galleries and museums and music and theatre.

Visit Kelowna in the summer and go to one of the beautiful beaches you can find there! Kelowna is around a 4-5 hours ride from Vancouver, so definitely worth to visit!
