What to do on the weekend?

All good times somehow come to an end and unfortunately this weekend is going to be my last one. I’ve made so many good friends here with INTERNeX and will miss them a lot when I’ll be back in Germany. But there is a phrase which goes like: We will see us a second time in our lives. And for me, I truly believe in that phrase. Nevertheless, I want to give you a last time some recommendations on what to do on the weekend.

Dunbar Haunted House

Starting with the first one: Fright Nights! =) Since Halloween is around the corner, why not get the spooky season started with a Fright Night at the PNE Playland? You can go to 7 haunted houses and get thrilled all the time. I’ve heard from a friend that there are some guys chasing you, how awesome but terrific at the same time! If you are not scared enough by that you can put up your adrenaline level with some night ride attractions. Be sure to not miss this event since Halloween is only one time in a year and why not experiencing it in another country? 🙂

If you want a more resting or more quiet weekend you can also go to the Capilano River Regional Park exploring the Capilano Cleveland Dam, Capilano Canyon and the Salmon Hatchery. With trails and paths along the river you have lots of opportunities to see beautiful nature. The easiest way to get there is taking the sea bus from Waterfront to Lonsdale Quay and taking the bus to the Park. Besides the fact that you can walk through some of the best nature places in Vancouver, you can also see some fish there by visiting the hatchery. Right now is Salmon Running Season and your chances of seeing them jump is high. You could see the typical salmon with the red and green colour named Sockeye Salmon. For the ones of you who watch Disney movies: It is the same fish that the two bears in “Brother Bear” fish together =). But also if you don’t like watching fish you can walk up a trail and enjoy the view at the Cleveland Dam. I’m sure you’ll find a nice activity to do in the Capilano River Regional Park.

Vancouver Fashion Week 2013

Since Vancouver is also a very high fashion city with lots of trendy shops we can recommend you going to the Vancouver Fashion Week this weekend. Depending on the show you want to see and the brands showing up the tickets can range from 30-150$. It’s a nice experience to see the new trendy clothes presented on a catwalk with the models walking by. I personally think some styles and old looks will be trendy right now and have a rebirth on some models. What is your fashion prediction?

Now caused by the weather of Raincouver this weekend, I have another fun recommendation for you! Why not spending time in the Extreme Air Park in Richmond with an indoor trampoline park? You can have fun jumping around, playing some jumping games or being a ninja warrior. With 42000 square feet room inside their walls, they can offer some awesome jumping areas. You can expect somethings like zero gravity basketball, air zone, foam zone, a half pipe, 3D dodgeball, bounce balls or vertical volleyball. I’m pretty sure you’ll find something fitting for you and your personal jump ability =).

Extreme Air Park

Whatever you are going to decide on, we wish you a nice weekend with everlasting memories and a lot of fun!

See you next week!

Cheers,

Tino =)

Year Review – Part 1

Finally a new Blogpost. I know you must miss the daily INTERNeX Blogpost incredibly over the holidays. And because we don’t want you to be too heartbroken, we have something very special prepared for you in the upcoming days:
As the year of 2019 is coming to an end, this is the perfect opportunity to take a look at what happened the past year. There were truly some great highlights and events, that made the year 2019 very special. So we should take a closer look at the past months and thank everybody who made it as special as it was.

First of all, we have to point out, what a great group of people joined the INTERNeX family this year. So many who decided to spent this very outstanding time in their life along side of INTERNeX, thanks for being as great as you are. We are sure the experiences you made here in Canada (or the ones you will be making) will stay for a lifetime!
Furthermore we had a great group of PR-Coordinators making everything possible, organizing trips and events and just making this time unforgettable. And of course, thanks to the partners of ours that also put in a big impact of this very successful year!
img-20190302-wa0043-1-e1552434605363.jpgThe year started with Jasmin, coming all the way from Finland and taking over the job of the first PR-Coordinator in 2019. Starting from there we had a lot of stuff coming up, to keep everyone busy and well entertained. Thank you for doing a great job. Unfortunately I never got to meet you in person, but I heard many stories :-D. You will never be forgotten <3.
As the weeks passed by there was one major highlight coming up. img_20190317_123723-e1552952465741.jpgThe INTERNeX-crew made their way to Seattle, to smell some American Air for a change. Together with West-Trek the INTERNeXer got to leave Vancouver and see one of the most beautiful cities ever (right behind Vancouver of course ;)). Since I am only summarizing this, you are more than welcome to check out the whole story around it, the following link, will bring youright away to the post about it (https://internexcanada.wordpress.com/2019/03/18/how-was-your-weekend-91/). Last but not least, the INTERNeXer got to attend a very special event in Vancouver. img_20190323_173411-e1553560515397.jpgThe Fashion Week, and I am not talking about just any Fashion Week, but THE Fashion Week. If you are all about it, this was definitely a very exciting event. As the year continuous any other highlights were just waiting ahead.
More photos will always be provided on the Instagram profile, so just in case you are not one of our followers yet, make sure to do so >> internexcanada 🙂

Our journey through 2019 will continue soon.

Until then, I hope you are having a great time and Happy Holiday everyone!

How was your weekend?

Here we are again, surviving through Monday. Did anyone else feel like the weekend went by so fast? I sure did. Maybe it is because the weekend was full of fun things to do. In this blog post you will get a sneak peak of the Vancouver Fashion week and on top of that some views from the Mt Seymour.img_20190323_173411.jpg

The INTERNeX gang visited the Vancouver Fashion week on Friday and Saturday. The event was full on both days so it was pretty hard to find seats at first. During breaks you just had to rush to get a seat and that’s what we did. Both of the nights included a lot of different designers and collections that were interesting to see. One of our candidates, Carolin, volunteered at the Fashion Week and it was nice to hear her voice at the show since she was the one introducing the designers and the names of the collections. The atmosphere at the Fashion Week was really nice. People were showing their respect towards the pieces they liked by cheering and clapping. Thank you to the ones who participated and I hope you all had a great time.

On Sunday the mountains were calling. Sara and me headed to the Mt. Seymour for some snowboarding. It was the season opening for both of us since I hadn’t been snowboarding since last year and it had been a three-year break for Sara. We still managed to survive without any broken bones. The view from Mt. Seymour was absolutely beautiful. We were also super lucky with the weather since it was quite warm, not too sunny and not snowing. The slopes were pretty empty so no lines for the lifts either. We spent a great day at the slopes and ended it with a nice dinner at a restaurant located on the mountain.

I wish everyone a nice upcoming week and remember to join us for PuB NiGHT @ The Mahony & Sons Stamps Landing

What to do on the weekend?

A busy weekend coming up? Don’t have anything to do? Or maybe you just want to do nothing? Well here are some ideas for you no matter what kind of weekend you were planning.

img-20190319-wa0017.jpgVancouver Fashion Week is in town and some of us are going to spend some fashion time tonight and tomorrow. I myself have never been to a fashion week so I’m really looking forward for this. To everyone who is coming remember to dress up, be on time and bring two pieces of ID. I will be updating the Facebook event about schedules so be sure to check that out.

The ski season is coming to an end so if you have the urge to ski I’d suggest doing it sooner than later. Good places to go are for example Mt. Seymor, Mt. Grouse or Mt. Cypress. Don’t worry if you did not bring your own ski gear from home or if you don’t own any because you can for sure rent all the necessaries from the ski resort. Some places also offer a shuttle to the mountain so you don’t have to worry about how to get there.

Another thing you might want to consider of doing before it is too late is going to the Canucks game. There are a handful of home games left and the future depends on how well the Canucks will fight to get through to playoffs. So make sure to buy your tickets and go cheer the Canucks for win!

Btw you can find an event for the Rockies Trip now in Facebook, make sure to check that out. I wish a great weekend for everyone!
