Piper Pass Hike – A Gorgeous Trail in Kananaskis

The Piper Pass hike in Kananaskis Country’s Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park is fantastic. It exceeded all expectations in that it was easier and more beautiful than I thought it would be – and it was devoid of people. It’s one of a number of hikes you can do from the Elbow Pass Day-Use area and I think it’s the prettiest of the lot. You can do it as a long day hike from Highway 40 – or as a shorter day hike from the Tombstone Campground which is what we did as part of a multi-night stay. ...

Scrap the front desk – Can hotels operate without a physical front desk? | By Binu Mathews

The front desk: the emblem of hospitality. For years and years, we have been walking into a hotel to greet smiling faces behind the familiar desk. However, as technology evolves and continues to transform the hospitality industry, does the front desk continue to be a symbol of care and luxury, or is it transforming into a beacon of tedious outdated processes? Many industries have already scrapped their version of ‘front-desks’ in favour of more modern and tech-based approaches. The airlin...

With an efficient hotel sales strategy, you can have your rooms sold out and build a steady income source, irrespective of the season. The more hotel revenue you make from your reservations, the more you can invest in your branding, marketing, and enhancing the quality of the rooms you sell.

What not do when driving the Road to Hana

During the height of COVID-19 in 2020, Maui’s Hana Highway was open to local traffic only for many months. This policy was in place to allow emergency and healthcare traffic flow. We’re not sure what’s happened since the Hana Highway was reopened, but locals are generally not happy with visitors as we’ve seen and heard quite a few complaints. The road to Hana is a beautiful drive through a rainforest. While it may be easy to be entranced by its beauty, it’s important to remember that the Hana H...

The Best Travel Underwear for Light Packers

It’s exciting to talk about travel gadgets, apps, and cool clothing, but one item that’s on you almost constantly doesn’t get much attention: your travel underwear. Except when you’re in a bathing suit, you’ll probably have underwear on when you’re traveling. Which means if you’re on a round-the-world trip lasting a year, you might be in contact with this particular item 365 days in a row. That’s a lot of wear and a lot of sink washing. Even if you bring 10 versions (which is probably overkill)...
