INTERNeX Explorer Ep1 – 2017 Behind the scenes

This week we posted our first episode of the INTERNeX Explorer. We are planning to publish an episode every month. Our new show will include some cool spots in and around Vancouver, upcoming trips and events as well as a review of the previous month. We hope to inform and entertain you with our little show we call the INTERNeX Explorer.

It was lots of fun making the first episode. We started with writing our own scripts. The hardest part was coming up with some interesting fun facts about ourselves. However, with some help from each other, we all figured out what to write. ix-explorer_ep1-2017Afterwards the filming finally started. As it was the first time we were being filmed, we were all a bit nervous, which made us forget our text sometimes. Luckily, we had our scripts near by and quite some time available to shoot the video. Janel had the chance to practice her news reading skills and also had to point to pictures which were not here and added in post. As she never did that before, it was a bit awkward.

The most difficult part was the part of the future events. First Danielle kept touching the green screen, as she wanted to put her jacket on. We therefore decided it would be easier if she was already wearing the jacket. But of course that meant she was getting hot wearing the jacket the entire time while filming. It was sometimes hard to stop laughing when we were shooting the part of future events. Simon had to sit in a very uncomfortable position on his knees outside the view of the camera to give Danielle the ski sticks.

After the shooting was done Simon and Tess had to do the editing. The postproduction of the video seemed to be the hardest part of our whole process. A lot of footage had to be viewed and in the end some music had to be found. The final cut went to some reviews and the entire team had to be alright with it. Simon said we can be proud of our first video and also that we will improve with every episode. We hope you agree with him and look forward to produce the next episode with him.

If you haven’t already, check out our first episode of the INTERNeX Explorer:

I hope you will enjoy the video and I am looking forward to hearing your comments!

INTERNeX Highlights of April 2014

It’s time for another highlight of the month video. This time we review the month April and preview May.

We started April with a international dinner at the office, where everyone brought typical food from their home country, such as kaiserschmarrn, pasta, stroopwafels and much more. Afterwards we went to the Cambie for some beers. Our second activity was the FlyOver Canada experience. And than of course we had our amazing Rockies trip during the long easter weekend, back in Vancouver we had a after rockies party.

In May we have new fun activity planned for you. On the 3th of May we will go to Richmond to the largest indoor trampoline park in Canada. The second weekend of May we are going to Granville Island for some cheesecake and beer. From the 17th till the 19th May we will be in Tofino for our monthly overnight stay. Back in Vancouver we will have a Pub & Club night starting with beers at the Cambie and than going out in one of the clubs on Granville street.  We will end the month of May with a bike ride through Stanley park.

 

We hope to see you at the activities in May!

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

 

Well I think these testimonials say more than enough! Click here for more information about the trip and do not forget to stop by the office to sign up. If you want you can also pay on one of our pub nights or on friday at the Latin dinner.

See you at the Latin Dinner on Friday!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Hallo y’all

Today’s Casual Friday post is going to be about two people. Germans and Canadians. You wonder how I thought of this? Well, me being a German staying in Canada right now, well what do you think? Ok, no seriously… Being in Vancouver for about three weeks now, I met a few new people already. And guess what, at the moment most of our participants are German. Surprise surprise… Every time I go abroad, I feel like at least every second person I meet is from Germany as well. You kind of get the feeling that Germany itself must be somewhat deserted by now… or as I like to say, you cannot escape us 🙂

With a lot of us travelling, our customs travel as well. You all know, that the most frequent assumptions about Germans are that we are basically all Bavarians, that we love love love our beer and that we eat a lot of Bratwurst. Thinking about all this, I actually found out a few funny things: If you really want to eat a Bratwurst in Vancouver, you do not need a rustic traditional German restaurant. No, you can just go to Chinatown and eat at Bestie’s!  It has, as advertised, ‘Chinatowns finest Currywurst’!!! And if you thought we love our beer, well – think again. Because obviously some Canadians love it even more. You wonder how I figure this? Well, they even brew a special beer for their dogs! Check out this article I found and you’ll see that Germans have to kick it up a nudge to keep up with this.

So what about us trying to be a little more like Canadians for a change? I saw this YouTube video the other day and found that actually quite fitting. So take this as an instruction to blend a bit more in with the natives 🙂

I would say: Challenge accepted!  I expect to see a few more Canadians at the next PuB NiGHT.

Best,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Hello you guys

Last week’s post being about the newest YouTube trends, the idea for today’s post came to me while looking for interesting things to do around the city. While working through my guidebook of Vancouver, I came across the name of one ‘Gassy Jack’.

Vancouver’s John ‘Gassy Jack’ Deighton is supposedly one of the very founders of the city and you can find his statue located near Carrall and Water Street. Now guess what made him a founding father? In 1867, he built one of the first houses of the original settlement Gastown, which is now one of Vancouver’s most famous neighborhoods. The interesting catch here is that this house was a pub – the Globe Saloon. Gassy Jack even built it up within 24 hours of his arrival. If you ask yourself how in the world he possibly managed that, I can tell you: He offered free whisky to the workers of the only other building in town, the sawmill. The only other drinking hole being over 25 miles away, the men readily jumped at this opportunity and had the pub ready for business the next day.

I guess this shows us once again what people need in their life: A place to work and after that – some nice conversation and  a good drink with friends. This gives our weekly PuB NiGHT a completely different spin, don’t you think? So if you would like to honor one of Vancouver’s, as it seems, oldest traditions then come and join us next Wednesday again at PuB NiGHT!  To get in the right mood for it you should check out this fun video I found on YouTube The Evaporators – Gassy Jack 

Talk to you again next week,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Some famous and stupid Internet trends that made us laugh! Anything better to start the weekend in a good mood.

lori

God save the absurd humor. Tumblrs, Facebook pages and YouTube videos full of cats, fatty little boys, pictures with a comment below, hilarious gifts,… The main source of time wasting, the only thing that you really need to enjoy an amazing evening with a friend (except a computer with network). The main reason that explains why I didn’t finish my bachelor with honors.

Do you have to study, to clean the house, to write that email to your mother….But finally what do you do? Go to the computer to waste many hours doing… anything. Only watching stupids things in Internet. That’s sound familiar to you?  Don’t worry, you are not a simply and boring lazy person, you are a victim of the Procrastination. What does that strange word mean? According to my good friend Wikipedia:

Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time.Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological disorder.

After this you feel kind of better, isn’t it?

Anyway, I want to update you about the hottest, craziest and why not, stupid trends that have happened during this extremely short summer which is now very close to the end.

Hot dogs or legs?

Somebody very tired about that trend of upload pictures to Instagram with a pair of legs and the sea/swimming pool/garden in the back, created that Tumblr where you have many examples about how difficult is to see the difference between a pair of legs and a pair of hot dogs. AWESOME.

http://hot-dog-legs.tumblr.com/

Hungover Owls

Well, I think that this Tumblr doesn’t need more comments… How can an owl looks so sad? Don’t you feel the need to bring them a large amount of ibuprofen and a two liters of water?

http://hungoverowls.tumblr.com/

Ugly Renaissance Babies

Basically, you can find here a wide range of Renaissance Art where the babies look very ugly. And then you have very funny comments below. Simple but effective

http://uglyrenaissancebabies.tumblr.com/

Funny Lori

That video is quite old… maybe the Real Frikies of Youtube will hate me to be too obvious, but this so so so so cute that I couldn’t resist about maybe one of the best videos in Youtube. ♥

So, I hope I have given you enough tools for don’t do anything productive in the next two weeks!

Cheers!

Clara.
