Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Preparations

Vancouverites are already experiening the huge inconvenience that such a global event brings to the city.

Endless road closures, restricted movements and Canada Line have advised that during the event there will often be a 3 or 4 Skytrain wait, therefore needing to allow at least an extra 30 minutes for your journey.

Lots of Vancouver Schools are closing for the event SO NOW IS THE TIME TO ESCAPE the hustle and bustle of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

You can do so for less with United Airline’s Vancouver Escape Sale. If you’d rather be sipping cocktails on a beach in Hawaii or trying your luck at the slot machines in Vegas than fighting traffic restrictions and painting a giant maple leaf on your face, this sale is for you!

Bed Warming Service at Holiday Inn

I couldn’t believe it when I first saw the headline…”Bedwarming Service at Holiday Inn”. This is available on a trial basis at 3 locations in the UK, 2 in London and 1 in Manchester.  The basic idea is that instead of placing a hot water bottle to warm up the bed before going to sleep, a staff person wearing a 1 piece fleece outfit (hair will be covered) will warm up the bed to 20 degrees celsius.  The bedwarmer will leave the room and get in the bed before the guest occupies it.
