Collaborations and Community:

Vancouver International Song Institute and Accent Inns

Again this year Accent Inns is collaborating with the Vancouver International Song Institute in mounting the annual Institute event June 4 – 23, 2010 at the UBC School of Music.

After all, making your vacation as comfortable and easy as possible is what Accent Inns across BC are all about! (more…)

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.  Chandra is our new best friend – an amazing young man of 33 that weighs 120 lbs (with his backpack on) and can carry heavy loads and scamper up and down rocky cliffs without taking his hands out of his pockets.   (more…)
