What To Do on the Weekend?

Is it only me or did this week just past so fast? Hope you’re all ready for the weekend because the weather forecast looks really good! 

Let’s start with a fact you might not have known…Tomorrow, March 14th, is INTERNeX Canada’s 21st birthday! Sooo HAPPY BIRTHDAY ! 🙂 Good for us that Tim founded this company in 1999 because otherwise we probably wouldn’t be where we are right now!!

But if you’re still trying to figure out what to do on the weekend – Here are some ideas:

I guess most of you already know, but next week is St. Patrick’s Day. Too bad that it’s on a Tuesday. But actually it doesn’t hold us off celebrating it. We just do our own St. Patrick’s Day event.
So all of you who want to go out on Saturday and have fun (and is 19 or older!) should come to our Pub Crawl tomorrow! We meet in front of Waterfront Station at 8pm. Let’s get green together !!
And for those of you who didn’t know why people celebrate it – Here’s a short summary:
This day remembers St. Patrick – a missionary. He converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century.

Of course I do have some suggestions for the minors. Since it’s supposed to be sunny on Sunday you could go to Stanley Park. I can recommend you renting a bike or just stroll around. There’s plenty to discover.

The clue with the bridge is the fact that the entry isn’t for free. At Lynn Canyon Park there’s a suspension bridge too, which might be an alternative for you since this one is for free.
Besides that you can find some walking trails, waterfalls, an ecology centre and more.49056800877_4bfc249ec1_oI hope you have a great weekend! See ya and be safe! xx

What to Do on the Weekend?

How fast the week has passed by and we are again facing a wonderful weekend ahead of us. And what great things are there to do this weekend – have a read below!

Vancouver as a very outdoorsy and sportive city of course celebrates its 10 Year 46446596894_b7b6462bc7_oAnniversary of the 2010 Winter Olympics. So for all sports enthusiasts, on Saturday,
February 22, from 11am to 6pm, a free fan festival will be held at Jack Poole Plaza, which is part of the Vancouver Convention Centre, which was the International Broadcast Centre during the Games. The festival offers athlete meet and greets, stage performances, sport demonstrations, lots of food and drinks, the relighting of the Olympic Cauldron, and other fun activities.

For those of you who would like to learn more about the local indigenous tribes and their traditional performances, you should consider attending the Talking Stick Festival. It is running from Friday, February 21 to Sunday, February 23 in various locations. This indigenous performing arts festival features artists and scholars, who come together to celebrate indigenous performing arts with the help of theatre, storytelling, writing, music, spoken word, dance, film and visual arts. Its 2020 theme is Chén̓chenstway, “upholding each other, lifting each other up”.

Being concerned with the indigenous culture, Stanley Park Ecology Society hosts a walk & workshop on indigenous plant use this weekend on Saturday. By walking through the park’s forest with an indigenous guide of Coast Salish descent, you will learn about edible, medicinal, and survival uses of plants, as well as the traditional and present-day indigenous use of and relationships with local plant and wildlife. You can register for this event online.

49342121353_13a6080a89_oFor everyone motivated in spending a part or even the whole weekend skiing or
snowboarding, Grouse Mountain is opening its doors for 24 consecutive hours of winter
fun! From February 22 until February 23, including sundown to sunrise, you can dance, ride or skate the night away under the night sky as DJs play cool tracks. Ski down Grouse’s beautiful slopes as long as you want to or simply dance the night away on Vancouver’s mountain roof top. Complimentary shuttles will run to make it easier to access this great event.

And then, not to forget, there is the movie night at Anniina’s place!! Her apartment building offers a really cool movie theatre that you guys should check out this weekend. Find more info and the link to an extra group in our Whatsapp group.

I hope this blog post gives you some inspiration for your weekend, enjoy every moment of it!! See you very soon! 😀

How was your Weekend?

The first full week of January is about to start, and this means for most of you – let’s get back to work!
Let’s do it guys! 

This weekend the INTERNeX crew went to the Stanley Park Brewery. Located right in Stanley Park (as the name might have spoilered already), this very romantic, beautiful place provided us a beautiful evening. 

IMG_5613.JPGWe got to eat a fantastic dinner and of course got try out some different sort of beers brewed right there. One fly included 4 different kinds of beers, which you got to choose from a menu of 16 different beers. A variety I was clearly overwhelmed with. Whereas others actually made  logical decision based on the very fancy descriptions for every beer, I sticked to trusting the waiter with all my heart or just going for wild, slightly random picks. Cleary I am not a professional beer taster yet, even tho this little fancy glasses made you feel like one.  However, have you ever tried Coffee-beer? I just loved it, so in case you don’t know what to choose, this is definitely something I can recommend. And trust me, I actually sounds wilder than it tastes. 

After the dinner we went on to The Cambie, where we went back to the beer-classics and had some nice chats, while listening to a bit strange mix of music.
Thank you guys for a lovely Saturday!   

Next weekend we will be playing Lasertag, so whoever isn’t afraid to face my very professional ninja-skills is more than welcome to sign up for it on Facebook. And yes, once again  you will have to agree to this very huge and intense commitment of clicking the going button on Facebook (I know I am asking a lot here), if you want to be part of this battle of a century. 

If you have any question you can always message us or ask me at this weeks Pub-Night at the La Casita!

Have a wonderful week, 

Cheers

What to do on the Weekend?

The feeding has come to an end, or with other word, the holidays are eventually over.
I hope everyone had a fabulous start into 2020. If you had any New Years Resolutions, I am very sorry it didn’t work out. If you still have them, good luck ;-). 

Anyways, the first weekend of the year is coming up and I’d say let’s make the best out of it to set the year right from the very beginning!
This Saturday our INTERNeX family (we celebrated Christmas together, I’d say we are a family now :D), is going to Stanley Park! And not just anywhere but to the very well-known Brewery. And just as you do in a Brewery, we are gonna have a little Beer tasting there. And even if you are not 19 yet, you are more than welcome to join and watch us drinking beer. No I am joking, of course there are going to be non-tipsy making alternatives for you :). 81590461_10157832441207103_8936653467716419584_n.jpg
If you decide on joining, you want to be quick on clicking on going on Facebook, as we only have two seats left.
Besides that, here are some more inspirations for the upcoming weekend:
If you are planning on going for a wild night on Saturday, you might want to consider the MIA nightclub. They will be hosting the ‘Rave for Cancer’, which means fundraising for the Young Adult Cancer Society. I think this is a very cool and important thing and should remind us on how lucky we are ourselves! The only problems our peers should be facing is stuff like the previous breakup, the unwanted twinning with that girl in the club (crashing, I know) or the failed uni-exam. Okay well, my examples might be not the best here, but what I am trying to say it – be grateful guys and go and support the ones who aren’t as lucky! 

If you just want to do something less active and more laid back on Sunday, the IndieFlicks Film Festival might be just what you’ve been looking for. There will be deep, meaningful .. (list continuous..) short film from all around the world.
So get out there and have a beautiful weekend!  

Cheers,

How was your weekend?

Maybe we experienced the last bit of sun this weekend. But let’s see what we or I did this weekend.

My Friday evening was quite relaxed. I spent a wonderful evening with my host family in White Rock. First, we had a look at the renewed pier, because it was closed for a while. After that we went to a cool and well known restaurant, at least in the area. After nachos and something to drink, we enjoyed the clear evening air and drove back home.

Saturday it was time to meet with the INTERNeX crew. We went on a bike tour with some of you. We met at the Waterfront Station and rented bicycles. Then it started for us. We drove the complete sea wall. Thank God, we got good weather and the thunderstorm that came later didn’t affect us. We needed about an hour and 15 minutes and after we had finished our bike tour everyone went their own way. Since I was already in Downtown, I thought that I could browse a bit in the shops and yes, of course I bought something. I couldn’t hold myself back. Then I headed home and watched a movie with my host family.

On Sunday I went for a brunch in Fort-Langley in the morning. If you’ve never been there before, Fort-Langley is a super sweet little town with lots of small antiques shops where you can experience a real journey through time. At least I found it really exciting to see objects from 1920. I spent a few hours in Fort-Langley before I made my way back. And then it was finally time to eat something German again, I was invited to eat, and it was cooked extra traditional German food. After three months in Canada, which I do not want to miss in any case, there are times in which one misses the food from the homeland. I was really full after I finished the food, on the train I almost napped, but I managed to wait until I got home.

Hope you all had a nice weekend and even if it’s rather dull weather today, I wish you a good start into the week.

See you at the PUB NiGHT on Wednesday!
