Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s Wednesday, which is the day for Smartsaver! Vancouver is pretty expensive most of the times, but you can save money!

7699686936_3ca42fbb6a_oComing months will be full of sports. FC Whitecaps already started their season and the BC Lions will start soon! If you want to save money on the tickets of the games then there are two options. First of all, Discover Canada Tours and Westtrek offer discounted tickets for almost all games. Secondly, if you go to the Tourism Vancouver Visitors’ Centre on the day of the game you can also save money! They offer “ Tickets Tonight”, which are half-priced tickets on sports games that evening.

Now that the weather is getting better it is time to do some travelling! Boltbus is a bus company which can take you to lots of places in Canada. The bus company offers $1 tickets, but these tickets are really hard to get though. They offer at least one $1 ticket for every trip that they offer. However, the tickets are sold randomly and mostly within the first seats sold. So if you want to get a $1 ticket you have to be on top of their schedule to even have a chance.

Also as the weather is getting better go do free activities in the city! Hiking in one of the parks, going to the beaches or walk through the neighbourhoods of Vancouver can be lots of fun and is free!

Hope to see all of you guys tonight at PuB NiGHT!

Pub Night Review

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that ended for most of you at the Cambie for our weekly pub night. However before we went down to the Cambie some of us went to the dance practice.

At 5.30pm we gather in front of the Art Gallery for the dance practice with Lee. We were around 25 people, all excited to get our dance moves on. After we had our “dance-meeting”, Lee put on the music and the show was on. We did two rehearsals before we want a dance-off were you could win two backstreet boys tickets. Our own Crazy Alex was the lucky winner of the tickets! Congrats to you. For those who weren’t at the rehearsal, I hope you practiced at home before the big day! Also a video will be soon released of the rehearsal.

After the rehearsal we went down to the Cambie for our weekly pub night. We were lucky enough the get a table outside and to enjoy the warm weather. After the dance practice we were of course hungry so we ordered some nice burgers with fries (btw, there are pretty cheap $9). Since the sun was setting down, it became a bit fresher outside so we went inside for some more drinks.

We hope you all will join us for the Flashmob! It will be a fun experience and something to tell your friends & family about back home. Here is a video on how to learn the music and if you click here there is even more information!

 

Backstreet’s back, alright!

The Amazing Rockies Trip

To get you even more in the mood for the Rockies Trip in April, we have a short movie about the Rockies and what to except. Over the years we interviewed many candidates about their stay in Canada and only good things were said about the rockies, read it yourself.

I really enjoyed the Rocky Mountains. The landscape there is breath taking and I can only recommend joining the next trip to the Rockies.  While writing about it great pictures of turquoise lakes and huge mountains with snow covered peaks come to my mind.  You guys should really not miss the next Rockies Trip! – Jasmin, Germany

There are so many things I will remember.  My whole time in Canada was amazing. But in my opinion, the Rockies trip was the most impressive thing! And of course, I won’t forget all the nice people from Canada and all over the world I met in these three months! – Laura, Germany

With Easter I went to the Rockies with INTERNeX. It was an amazing trip, one of the must do’s in Canada! – Ilse, Netherlands

I’ll always remember our hilarious pub nights, trips on the weekends, the beautiful and fun Rockies trip – Flora,

Most memorable are, of course, our amazing trips to Whistler and the Rockies. Literally every time I left the city, I got reminded of how big and beautiful this country really is – ah there is sooo much more to Canada than just one place – Marianne, Germany

 I went to the Rockies and it was simply awesome – Sebastian, Germany

Although I enjoy many parts of this internship, my favorite part was definitely the Rockies trip. I enjoyed spending time with all of my fellow PR interns as well as all of you that joined us on the trip. I got so close to all of you. It was a great final trip to a great internship. – Katie, USA

With INTERNeX I went to the Rockies, which was a very memorable trip! We had so much fun and I got to know a lot of nice people. I especially enjoyed the campfire we had, the Banff gondola and the Columbia Icefields! The nature is just stunning. – Melanie, Germany

The Rockies trip was definitely a memorable experience. There were so many nice people and we had so much fun together. – Jildau, Netherlands

For me it was the trip to the Rocky Mountains! The whole tour was fun: the nature was impressive, my roommates were awesome on this trip and we are really close friends now, even the bus ride was a lot of fun. – Maria, Germany

I went to an amazing Rockies Trip. That was one of the best trips I have ever done and I only can suggest everybody to attend the next one in April!
I arrived Thursday Night and went straight to the Rockies on Friday morning. The program was awesome, and for me was it the perfect chance to meet people right away.
I was part of the “INTERNeX Family” from the very beginning. We had a great time with terrific parties and fun people! – Nicolas, Germany

The Rockies trip with West Trek. It was an amazing tour and I met a lot of people who I am still in contact with! – Gerdieneke, Netherlands

PuB NiGHT Review

Yesterday it was time to meet for a after-whistler-beer and a pre-rockies-beer. Also a great discount on the rockies trip was given away to the winner of the quarters tournament and some other nice prizes were won.

We met at the Bismarck where we were welcomed with free nachos and 3$ beer, what else do you want? Some of us ordered food and once everyone was finished eating we started the quarters tournament with Lesley from Westtrek. Pairs played against each other and the winner went trough to the next round. In the finals Fredrikke played agains Mohammed and after some intense moments Fredrikke won the $50 discount for the Rockies trip. However Mohammed did not go empty handed he won a big bus tickets for two days.

After everyone was calmed down and has some more drink we started our quiz. Charlotte was the winner of the quiz and won a big bus ticket for two days and a very green lucky cup. Claudia and Fredrikke won some great sunglasses and Lisa won a nice INTERNeX shirt.

More pictures can be found here.

See you at our next pub night or at the Giants game on Friday!
