PuB-Night review

What a fun night!

Since this was my first PuB-Night ever, I am so impressed by the amount of people I met last night! Thank you for being so nice and welcoming!

IMG_4148The beaver, located on Granville Street, is definitely a place worth checking out! Even tho we were such a big group the stuff didn’t get tired to run up and down the stairs constantly. The Pub itself is a really nice place, just making you feel the canadian spirit.  A personal recommendation are the nachos! So good. Thanks again for getting me amped on them ;-).
Later we went on to playing some music bingo, apparently that’s the thing to do, when you visit the beaver on a Wednesday night. And I have to admit, this wasn’t the last time of me playing bingo in here. Some of us were even lucky enough to win and got into the joy of having some shots or even a pitcher for free! I think we can agree in having a pretty good night out this week!

After the long Thanksgiving weekend everybody was so happy to be around each other again. And besides me, there were some new faces to be welcomed in the group. Therefore a special welcome to you guys and thanks for coming!

But don’t worry the next Canadian highlight is already set. Since Halloween is such a big thing here, we should het the chance to get into some crazy costumes for our upcoming Halloween Party! Therefore, and because I am personally very excited to get to know you guys a little bit better, we’ll see each other on the weekend and go do some costume shopping together!
And I am promising you, the Halloween-vibe around here is just on another level!

I hope you are having a great day and see you soon.

Newest addition to the PR-Team

So this is the new face, that will keep on popping up in the following months.

Untitled
My name is Nadja, I am 21 years old and just started working at INTERNeX.
Just like you, I am a big fan of travelling and simply can’t get enough. Therefore I took a break of my studies in Germany to explore the beauty of Vancouver.

I am studying Communicational Science and Psychology in my 3rd year. Don’t ask for the city, its super tiny and you won’t know it anyways ;-). So moving here from such a small city, has been quite a challenge for me. Luckily I am always  looking forward to new challenges. After doing my Bachelors degree I definitely want to work in Marketing and/or Public Relations, therefore I am very happy about the job as a PR Coordinator here at INTERNeX.

In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, go skiing and snowboarding. Therefore I can’t wait for the winter to come. I am absolutely ready for it!
I love to go out and meet new people and just enjoy life as cheesy as it sounds.

Since I want to keep some personal information for the upcoming face to face conversations, I am gonna end here.
So just a quick reminder, I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the upcoming Pub-Night and Halloween-Costume-Shopping!

Hope to meet you soon.

What to Do on the Weekend?

Another workweek has passed and the weekend is close at hand. So what is there to do on the upcoming weekend?

One of the greatest events this fall starts on Thursday, September 26. It’s the International Vancouver Film Festival (VIFF). The VIFF presents the world’s best cinema fused with related talks and events. Over 320 films are on display in a variety of movie theatres throughout downtown and approximately 400 industry professionals from around the globe are hosted. We will watch a Canadian Premiere on Sunday, September 29. “Burning Cane” depicts the stories of two Southern African-American men and their struggles in daily life as a pastor and unemployed father. The movie, which was written, photographed, and directed by someone still in high school (Philip Youmans), is surely worth a visit. We will meet on 2:30 pm on Sunday in the Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas, in the shopping mall where also our office is located in.

Apart from the world of movies, we also have other ideas for you for the weekend: 

Another great festival taking place is the International Vancouver Flamenco Festival with pop-up but also theatre performances on Saturday and Sunday. Also on Sunday, September 28th, the Shipyards Festival is held in the Lower Lonsdale District on the North Shore. The one-day event includes free admission, multiple stages, beer gardens and lots of different food to be discovered. Not to forget, the location also offers stunning views of the Vancouver skyline. Most conveniently, you can go there by sea bus which itself is always a fun thing to do.

For those 19+, the Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival might also be an interesting event to attend. The festival takes place at the Hard Rock Casino featuring over 50 BC craft breweries, tasty appetizers and lots of interesting people to mingle with. In addition, it is Octoberfest time now all across the world. This weekend, on Saturday, one takes place at the Hastings Racecourse from 1 to 6 pm. You’ll find traditional fare, exciting horse races, live music, and of course, plenty of food and beer there.

Have a great weekend and see you at the movies on Sunday!! 🙂

How was your weekend?

What a wonderful weekend! Hope everyone enjoyed the super nice and hot weather this weekend.

On Saturday I went to Squamish to hike the Sea to Sky Summit Trail, you should 20190720_122327.jpggo hiking there. On the way to the top you have wonderful places where you can take incredible pictures and where you are able to just enjoy the breathtaking view. The path leads you through the almost untouched forests and you even pass a waterfall with unbelievably clear water. The path stretches over 7.5 kilometres and you climb 885 metres of altitude. You can imagine what a feeling it is to arrive at the top and have the best view ever. Most people take the gondola down and when you see how high the mountain is you can hardly believe that you have hiked all this before.

On Sunday it was time to do something with our INTERNeX students. We did a picknick at the VanDusen Botanical Garden with a small group of people, but it was really fun to meet up with all the others and to talk about what was going on that week. We met at Waterfront Skytrain Station and took the Canada Line to King Edwards Station. From there it took us a 20-minute walk to the botanical garden. We searched a perfect little spot to sit down in the grass and enjoyed our food. After that we had a stroll around and looked at all the amazing flowers and plants.

It was such a nice Sunday!20190721_155913.jpg

The weekend has to end and now the week starts.

I wish you all a good start into the week and I hope to see you all at this week’s PUB NiGHT!!!

The PR Team has a new member!

I am not the best one when it comes to writing about myself, but I will try my best. So, lets start at the beginning. My name is Lilly-Therese, but everybody just calls me Lilly, guess it is easier that way. I am 19 years 20190704_164449old and I normally live in a small town near Berlin (Germany) together with my mom and my chocolate Labrador called “Maja”. And yes, she is the cutest 😉 and I will miss her! My older sister already moved to a different city to become a doctor in medicine, that is why it is only my mom and me.

Why am I in Canada? Well, in Germany I am studying European Management and I know what a lot of people might say:” then what is she doing in Canada and why isn’t she in Europe”. The answer to that is quite easy. For my studies a compulsory internship of 3 months is necessary, and we have to do it abroad, no matter if in Europe, Africa or America, the main thing is to do it outside of Germany.

From the moment I knew that I have to do that internship it was clear to me that I would loooove to do it in Canada, especially in Vancouver…city, mountains and seas all at once, sounds pretty great. As you might know, it is really difficult to find an internship in Canada, so I searched my way through the internet and came across INTERNeX. Which, looking back was the best that could have happened. I will now support the PR team for the next 3 months in organizing all the events and trips. I hope I will meet a lot of you guys there and that we have a great time together.

I think that were enough information for now, see you at this week’s PuB NiGHT at the Colony!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Tap house

 

Another Wednesday, another PuB NiGHT! Besides it was my second PuB NiGHT with the INTERNeX gang and my first PuB NiGHT I had to organize. After some researche I decided to reserve the Beaver Tap House. I wasn´t there before but their Internet review sounded good.

At the end of the night I probably can say, it was a good choice. I think everybody had a great evening. 

After we managed that everybody had a good seat, we talked a lot about everything and everybody. I also met some new faces yesterday. 

Furthermore it is to mention, that a special of the Beaver Bar is the famous music bingo every Wednesday. A song is played and you have to mark the singer and song title on your paper. Quite tough sometimes, but with team work we managed. In the first round Lukas and another girl, not from us, screamed BINGO simultaneously. But unfortunately she got the free Beer pitcher… 

All in all the music bingo was really funny, and I am sure that someone of us will win the next time.

We left the Beaver Bar at about 11:30 pm, but some of us were not tired at this time yet. Because of that a part of the INTERNeX group went on to the Yale Saloon. At the Yale we were almost the only ones, which is why the DJ played the Tequila song especially for us. The dance floor was only occupied by INTERNEX people. It was pretty cool to dance together with 10 other guys in an empty Pub 😀

At the end of this blog post, I like to say that I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! Thanks for coming!

Now I´m really looking forward to the weekend.

Cause that’s when our great Whistler trip is coming up. I hope to see many of you there again. 

See you on Saturday☺

One of the three new members of INTERNeX

It says all good things come in threes, so here is the last introduction of one of the new PR-Members: My name is Karina, I’m 21 years old and I’m from Germany, lower Bavaria. Me and my fellow students will be joining the PR-Team until the middle of July. We will be helping Jasmin and Megan to organize the PuB NiGHTS and the weekly and monthly events. Yesterday I already had the chance to meet some of you guys at the Pub Night in the Yale Saloon, which was really great. Especially the bull riding was a lot of fun.

img_8005-e1559864733775.jpgMaybe I should tell you a bit more about myself, so you know who you’re going to meet at the next events of INTERNeX. I study Guidance for Education, Career and Employment in Mannheim, which is a dual course of study. Our University, called HdBA is a Corporate University of the Federal Employment Agency. Due to my studies I had the opportunity to do a practicum abroad and it was no question at all where I want to spend it. Vancouver includes everything the heart wishes for: Beautiful landscapes, a big city and nice beaches. By the way, do you know that Vancouver is one of the cities with the highest quality of living in the world? So I think we all made no bad decision coming here and I am so glad that I have the opportunity to do a practicum in Vancouver.

As one of my favourite things to do is hiking, I really hope that I have the chance to see a lot of the beautiful canadian mountains. In case you are looking for somebody to go for a hike, you should definitely ask me. But I also enjoy chilling at the beach or going out for dinner.

However, I am looking forward to meeting the rest of you guys, maybe this sunday at the Queen Elizabeth Park for Disc Golf? 🙂 I hope that we are all going to have an awesome time here in Canada.
