INTERNeX Canada: National Prototypes!

I am sure everybody who has spent some time in Vancouver has already noticed how international Vancouver is! The Canadian population for itself is a mix of different nationalities… It’s funny because all our candidates in their very first days always say…Oh but I haven’t see any Canadian yet…of course you did! This is Vancouver, the home for some many different people!

But what would be the typical prototype of a Canadian person? For example when someone thinks in a Spanish girl or guy they always imagine someone with dark hair and dark eyes… I am a good example that the prototypes are not always true! If you think in a Swedish or Russian girl probably you would describe them like tall, blond, and it’s true in some point but they are of course a lot of other kind of person, all kind of beauty…

So before coming here I imagined Canadians like blonds, tall and resisted of the super cold weather! And the only thing that I will agree with myself right now , would be that they are really made for the cold weather, well the most of them. I love the people who are wearing flip flops like if we were in summer, or running with shorts! So here is some tip of how to recognize a Canadian, if they are wearing springs clothes when you were twenty different  coat, probably are Canadian, if they have some coffee in their hands, probably are Canadian, if they  use Eh! For everything, hell yeah! Congratulations you meet a Canadian!

By the way, forget about the tags, the prototypes… every single person are special and unique no matter where they were born! And that’s the best! Can you imagine how bored it would be a world with the same kind of people?

Enjoy the differences!

Cheers,

Irene

Get Whisked Away!

British Columbia boasts one of North America’s number one ski and snowboard resort and the host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games! Whistler B.C. serves up more vertical feet, advanced lifts and various ski terrains than any other resort on the continent. In addition to that, add on three glaciers, 16 alpine bowls and North America’s longest ski season and you have yourself one epic ski vacation.

You can ski the Symphony Bowl and 7th Heaven, before having a quick lunch whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola can whisk you 2.73 miles between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain in a dizzying 11 minutes. This premier ski resort is a year-round playground. Once the snow begins to melt you can try out a self-guided off the road adventure over 3,937ft of park terrain at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park or learn to wakeboard on Green Lake. However, if moguls, chutes and steeps are not in your vocabulary, you can still appreciate Whistler’s après scene. You can indulge in a candlelit fondue dinner for two at a romantic chalet or rejuvenate at a day spa with a soothing hot oil, shiatsu or Swedish massage.

Browse at over 200 shops and boutiques in the pedestrian-friendly plazas of Whistler Village. And with the village boasting over 90 restaurants with some of the best dining and nightlife opportunities in BC there’s no need head down to the city. Anything ranging from funky sushi bars in the Creek or Village to restaurants serving tapas late into the night and live music that will have you dancing even after a full day of play in the outdoors, Whistler has it all! The public transit runs from 4:40am to 3:30am every day otherwise there are taxis and the free village shuttle…so need to worry club hoppers Whistler has your back!
