Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #2

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

photo 2Pre running the course is so important for the race.  It allows you to see all the hazards before race day so you can ride your fastest when it matters.  The course also changes so much during the 2 weeks leading up to the race as you have 300 plus vehicles doing the same thing as you.  So nice sandy roads turn into torn up, whooped out, silt infested trails.  Good times.

Why Be a Dog Friendly Hotel?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

KE Sep 2009 18bSo many folks tell us how thrilled they are that Accent Inns is a dog friendly hotel, but on occasion I get asked by some, “why would you welcome dogs in your hotels?” I can understand if someone isn’t a pet owner they might not understand. It’s simple really, our pets (dogs, cats, etc…) are living breathy mammals just like you and I and being so, it’s instinctual (in my opinion) for us to form tight bonds, love our pets. (more…)

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Training for Baja 1000For me, this crazy dream all started in 2008 when a good friend of mine and owner of Action Motorcycles, invited me on a dirt bike trip to a little town on the Sea of Cortes, San Felipe Baja Mexico.  This sounded like a fun adventure.  I had no idea that 6 trips later over 5 years, would have us lined up to race the toughest non-stop off-road race in the world. A Victoria BC Hotel Manager racing the 46th Baja 1000, who would have imagined that? (more…)

The Key to Understanding Dogs

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Dr Coren FlyerUnderstanding Dogs. I once had a dog owner tell me that she had taught her dog over 100 words and that the dog fully understand the meaning of each word.  A little later when I asked her why she didn’t let her dog run off-leash in a dog park, she told me because he wouldn’t come when he was called.  It seemed strange to me that not one of those 100 words was the word “Come!”

But it did get me to wondering just what does go on in our dog’s heads? Do they understand our words or just the emotions they sense accompanying the words.  Is it as the cartoon says – all they hear is Blah Blah Blah Blah Treat  or Blah Blah Blah Blah Walk?

I suspect there is more to the dog brain than that but I don’t know for sure.  That is why I am planning to attend the talk being given by Dr Stanley Coren in Victoria on November 6.  The title of his presentation is “The key to Understanding Dogs” and Dr Coren plans to address such topics as: Just how intelligent are dogs?  Do dogs dream?  And the one that I am most interested in – How much language does a dog understand?

Travelling By RV in BC – A Sales Manager’s Perspective

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Accent Inns Sales Team – L-R Kim Jones, Donna Price, Helen Wright & Karen England

When you work for a hotel company you get used to customers coming to your place of business so it was a very nice change for the Accent Inns Sales Team to visit some of our customers at their place of business. We also had the chance to experience what many of our RV rental guests do as they leave our hotel at Vancouver Airport to take on the trip to northern BC and beyond.

On May 8th 4 of our Sales Team and 4 of our ducks took to the road in 2 campers from Fraserway RV Rentals.  We travelled from Vancouver to Whitehorse visiting a number of towns along the way.  What we discovered it that we live in a very big province filled with amazing scenery and incredibly friendly towns and villages.  (more…)
