The Accent Inns‘ Inn Aid “Charity in Changing Times” seminar was a breath of fresh air, and a welcomed addition outside of my daily routine. I was able to connect with other professionals in the non-profit world and find out our common challenges and provide helpful solutions. Dawn Chubai’s personal approach on how to work with the media was insightful because a large percentage of my work entails gaining media coverage for The Land Conservancy of BC. Her passion for storytelling and representing non-profits in her community is completely sincere and genuine. (more…)
Greetings from Lukla. Unfortunately I am not able to send you any photos but will try to tell you a few tales of my trip. Because she wasn’t feeling well, we sadly had to leave Lupita in Namche Bazar as Chandra our guide took Karen and me to Dingboche. It was an amazing trip.

At first it was Business Class and a nice hotel at Hong Kong Airport. Then it was a day in Kathmandu without a power outage. Now it is the Khumbu Lodge – a room with electricity, hot water and a western toilet. I think soon it will be a room with a roof over our heads. Makes me think how wonderful my room is at Accent Inns. (more…)
In just a few days we will be off on our big adventure. Although we have packed way more than we will ever need, there is still a feeling that we must have missed some vital piece of equipment. For that reason we still seem to be magnetically drawn to every Outdoor Store in Victoria. Karen is sure that she will find some brand new, amazing, light weight, solar charged something that will make the journey a thousand times easier. So far she has had no luck. (more…)
