Experience IT Review – Museum of Anthropology

On Thursday evening we went to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC for a more cultural evening, thank you all for coming!

20217312_10203374196551397_520178885_nThe Museum of Anthropology houses one of the world’s finest collections of First Nation art from the Pacific Northwest. Besides that they also have big collections from different cultures from all around the world and a wide range of temporary exhibitions.

When we got to the museum we first walked into an amazing room with a lot of totem poles and first nation stuff, then we went to the Amazones and saw a lot of accessories. After the Amazones we saw calligraphy from different cultures and we went into a black box where they made the calligraphy come alive, which was amazing to see. They also had a lot of object from cultures all over the world and we saw different kind of plates, like the Dutch Delfts Blue.

After the museum we decided to go to Wreck Beach where we got to watch an amazing sunset.

Thank you all for coming and I hope to see you at PuB NiGHT!

PR-team Adventures

18386724_1745195368829240_1548844133_nAs you guys all know we organize a lot of stuff for our INTERNeX family. PuB NiGHTS, weekly events and monthly trips, all of these are organized to make your experience here the most memorable it can be. Because of all these events we have a really nice group who not only attend our events, but also decide to go out together every now and then.

So Saturday we decided to go on a boat party. Some of us got pizza and did a few pre drinks before we headed to the boat, where we met up with the rest of you. We first sat down in the inside area, but quickly decided to go up to the deck to enjoy the view. When we took off you could hardly hear the music, so we made some awesome pictures and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

It was super fun and we made some great memories! After the boat party we all got in cabs and went to Studio Records for the after party.

I had an amazing night with all of you and even though this might not have been an INTERNeX event, we where there with 15+ people from INTERNeX. It was really nice partying with all of you!

BLOOD MOON

For the Total Lunar Eclipse, sometimes also called Blood Moon, you don’t require any special equipment and that’s why we watched the Lunar Eclipse with the naked eye the day before yesterday. We met very early at Waterfront Station and walked all the way down to Stanley Park. I actually hadn’t expected that it’s such a long way but it took us more than half an hour to get there.IMG_1935
However the weather this past Sunday was just incredible and so we could enjoy the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Even though in my opinion the skyline and the harbour were much more spectacular or beautiful than the moon, we actually came together to watch this really rare phenomenon. Luckily we had a clear sky and from Stanley Park also a perfect view to the east horizon where the moon rose. It was pretty cold (at least for the girls) but that didn’t deter us from taking a lot of pictures. It was really a great chance because the combination of the Lunar Eclipse and the Supermoon doesn’t happen very often. IMG_1953The last one occurred in 1982 and the next one will be in 2033. A Supermoon is actually nothing more than a full moon except the fact that it’s only called Supermoon when the moon makes its closest approach to the earth. In addition to that the sun, the earth and the moon were “perfectly” lined up for the Blood Moon. But I think that was enough information for you concerning this highlight.

Hope you enjoined it!

See ya!

How was your weekend?

The weather this past weekend was just incredible! As if trying to prove itself the sun powered up and showed us the summer we will be missing from now on. So, to celebrate the end of summer we decided to have a BBQ which was most likely the last one of the year!

We all got together in Stanley Park right next to Second Beach. Everyone brought a little
something and the area on the grill quickly filled with lots of different kinds of meat and also some marinated potatoes.

Even though we were quite hungry we still had to wait for a bit but patience is a virtue, right? In the meanwhile, we chatted or played catch with the football and Frisbee we had brought along.
After only a short wait, the food was finally cooked and we could get started. It tasted amazing! However, we realized we should have done this a lot more often.
Because we had so much food the grill was constantly busy but eventually, around sundown, everyone was contentedly rubbing their stomach. And although it had been quite cloudy all day the clouds dispersed at the end and we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset.

Thank you all for coming!

How was your weekend? – Victoria Day Trip

Oh Yesterday! It was a cool Sunday morning when we gathered for our trip to British Columbia’s capital city. It took us quite a while to get down to ferry at Tsawwassen Bay. And shortly before 11am we were finally able to board the Spirit of Vancouver Island. On the ferry we first had to figure out our way around, but eventually ended up on the open deck where we enjoyed the sun and the open water all around us. At some point there was even an interesting presentation on sharks and stingrays that live near Vancouver.

Finally, we arrived in Victoria after taking another bus from Swartz Bay. The first thing we noticed? No skyscrapers! Also, everything looked quite different from Vancouver. Before, going on this day trip I had heard Victoria looks very European. And it’s true! The capital really had a European-ish feeling to it.

Our first stop took us to Craigdarroch Castle which seemed to be home to a deer that came by to check out the property. It’s amazing how nonchalant it looked. It seemed like it was just taking a stroll in its backyard.
Later we walked around Downtown, just taking in everything around us and when our stomachs started complaining we made our way to Fisherman’s Wharf for some Fish &Chips.

Time flew, so we headed back to catch the ferry in time. On our return we were able to see an amazing sunset which completed our day.

Next weekend: INTERNeX Goes Rockies! Can’t wait!

PuB Night @ the Beach Review

Yesterday we had our PuB Night at the Sunset beach. 

We met at 6pm, however some of us joined later. Since it wasn’t as hot as the days before it was really nice when we arrived there, but it got a little cold after the sun was down.

We watched the nice sunset and talked about different trips we are thinking to do and gave each other tips about a lot of activities in Vancouver. Of course we discussed as well where we want to go for the last soccer match on sunday. So for everybody who wants to watch the match, we are definitely going somewhere together, but since most of the pubs don’t do reservations on this big day or want to charge us a $10 entrance fee we are still looking for one where we might get in for free.

We had a great time, enjoying the sun after work and we hope that the weather will stay like this, so we can have a great summer and lots of outside activities in and around Vancouver.

PuB Night Announcement

The Sunset Beach is great to (of course) watch the sunset and after the sun went down we can leave the beach and have some more drinks at a pub nearby.

 

Some of you can of course bring a blanket or a volleyball or whatever you would like to do at the beach. And remember that it will be Oles last PuB Night, so we hope to see many of you there.
