Canada Day

The 1st of July is Canada Day, which means you are off work and can enjoy Vancouver by day. Vancouver city has many activities planned for this day and of course we do not want to miss this.

On Canada day the Canadians celebrate the ‘birth’ of their country. In 1867 three colonies were united into one country; Canada. Canada day is celebrated in whole Canada, but also Canadians outside Canada celebrate this anniversary. In 2011 the British Prince William and Kate visited Ottowa to celebrate Canada day.

We will meet at 6.30pm on West Pender and Broughton Street and will make our way to the Parade, afterwards we are going to try to find our self a spot to watch the fireworks at 10pm. However it is going to be very crowded and there are only certain spots from where you can see the firework. We are going to do our best to get a great spot to watch the fireworks. In case we miss the fireworks, no worries at the end of July and beginning of August the celebration of light is held were you can also see a beautiful dance of fireworks!

We hope to see you on Canada day and don’t forget to wear your Canadian outfit!

Upcoming events

We have tons of fun planned for you, here you can find a short preview.

Friday, May 23rd, Pub & Club Night

It’s feels like such a long time ago that we had a Pub & Club night, so what is better than getting rid of this feeling. On Friday the 23rd of May we will have another Pub & Club night for you, which means that there will be no Pub Night on Wednesday (May 21st). We will meet at The Pint at 7pm to get the night started with some drinks and food. We will probably stay at The Pint the whole night, since it will get pretty crowded and fun later the night!

 

Wednesday, May 28th, Pub Night

On Wednesday it is time to return to the Bismarck for our weekly Pub Night. The Bismarck is located in the International Village Mall on the side of the Mc Donald’s.

 

 

 


Saturday, May 31st, Bike Ride/Deep Cove

We will end the Month of May with a nice bike ride around Stanley Park or we will head out to Deep Cove to get our Kayaking on. Of course those activities will only find place when the weather is nice. If there is rainfall forecasted in this sunny city we will cancel the activity and find a nice coffee place to hang out.

 We hope to see you all at the activities!

Review: After Rockies Party

Last Friday we had our After Rockies Party which was awesome. At first we went to the Mexican restaurant called La Casita in Gastown for dinner and some drinks. We showed some pictures and of course the INTERNeX-Backstreet Boys video. We talked a lot about the Rockies and how much fun it was and also about the upcoming events such as the Tofino Trip in the middle of May. Afterwards we went out to the nightclub called Pop Opra. There was a white party, so everyone of us had something one which was white. We had some more drinks at the club and started to go crazy on the dance floor. We hope you had also a amazing time out. 

 

We hope we will see you all on Wednesday for our weekly Pub Night @ the Doolin’s

You get a Special-Jacket and a Laser-Gun and than there is only one thing to do:Shoot everybody from the other team who is crossing your way! It’s like Paintball but it doesn’t hurt because you shoot with laser and not with bullets! So everybody who is afraid of getting hurt, that’s your chance to have lots of fun and you won’t have black and blue marks the next day!

PuB NiGHT Review

Yesterday we had our Pub Night at The Pint on Abbott street. We introduced the ‘newbies’ to the INTERNeX family and welcomed them with beer and food.

We talked about Whistler and how much we fun we had on our trip to Whistler earlier last month. It is a definitely must-do while being in Vancouver. We had a super nice hotel with hot tub and swimming pool and we were located directly at the slope. So for the early bird skiers that was awesome. Also some candidates went Bungee jumping, zip trekking or snow tubing. We can just recommend you to go there as soon as you have time.

Of course we also talked about the Rockies trip which is only 2 more weeks away! How excited are you? We are super excited, those four days are going to be amazing. If you want to join the Rockies trip please pay in CASH before the 11th of April. Our office is open from 10am till 5pm every weekday. If you want to make sure we are in the office, drop us a line on Facebook and we will make sure that we are there when you pay.

For more pictures of the Pub Night click here.

Our next PuB NiGHT will be next Wednesday at the Blarney Stone. More information will follow soon.

See you at the International Dinner on Saturday!
