INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

A Secret place to discover

Hi everyone! How is your Friday going? Maybe, thinking in the weekend? Probably yes.

Today I want to tell you about one awesome place that Mercedes and I discovered yesterday. We were looking for a place to eat and suddenly we saw a little hidden place between two supermarkets: London Drugs and Nesters Market (Abbott St with Hastings St).

It’s a little square with picnic tables to eat and take a rest, and a basketball zone. Very lighting and comfortable. Have a look at the pictures and judge by yourselves!

Vancouver has a large amount of hidden places, but you are lucky, we are here to discover them for you.

Shhhh!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: News /Fun Facts

Today I just want to share my personal opinion about this amazing city! Vancouver it´s the third best place to live in the world! Of course no one of us is stupid at all choosing Vancouver for doing our internship, working or improving our English here!

But why is Vancouver on the top ten?

I don´t know how is in your cities, but in Madrid it´s no possible at all sailing and in the same day skiing! But here you can do both or even change the skiing for a beach day! Awesome!

The first days that you are in Vancouver you think: Oh what a big city with all these skyscrapers but then once you have been living for a while, you realize how small Vancouver is! It looks like a big city but is like a village! It has the best things of the big cities: a lot of shops, cinemas, theaters, everything you can imagine… but also the best thing of living in a “village”: everything is near, you can walk everywhere and in a short period of time you will know the most of the people around you, your bus driver will be YOUR bus driver, you will know the most of your neighbors and you will find them everywhere! If you love the party you will see that the most of the people, even the international people like us that just stay for a while, are always the same! So this city is perfect to make friends! (And maybe not that good if you have enemies)

So apart of being a great city with a lot of beaches, mountains, it is also SO green! There are parks everywhere what are especially nice on this time of the year! Stanley Park is simply amazing! Every time I ´ve been there I think the same: it is not fair that not everybody can see it! I would love that all my friends to have the possibility of seeing and enjoying it!

Vancouver as you all can see, it is so international! There are a lot of Asiatic people, European, Latin Americans… A city plenty of international and young people, it´s like impossible don´t have fun!

And what do you think about Canadian people? Can be they been more polite? They have always nice words and they always try to help you!

Maybe it´s a personal opinion, but I find Vancouver one of the most interesting cities I´ve never been!  I understand that tons of people that just come here for a little period of time then fall in love with this city and want to stay forever. Absolutely comprehensible!!

If you have never been here and you have the possibility, come to Vancouver! If you are already here, enjoy every day like there is no tomorrow!

Let´s enjoy Vancouver!

Cheers,

Irene

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

This Friday I would like to show you all what I’d like to call a ‘motivational’ video.. Have you ever wonder what it would be like to be a little stronger? Ever wished your parents had been more strict about keeping up on your fitness? After I watched this video there were a lot of mixed feelings, but one that stood out was that it was time to visit the gym a little more often!

These two adorable boys, the Stroe Brothers, from Romania are currently known as the world’s strongest kids.

How did that make you feel? Impressive right?

Time to get that gym membership.. If you are wondering where you can go to the gym here in Vancouver; there are several options you can try. It really depends on what you are looking for, but the one I would like to recommend is the YMCA.

A lot of young people like to go there, mainly because it is the cheapest and has great facilities. Sign in fees are CA$50 and a monthly membership is CA$46. If you just want to drop in for a few times a month then you can pay a drop in fee of CA$15.

For more information you can visit the website here.

Have a great weekend!

Cheers,

Lies
