OMG is this winter ever going to end?? I hate to
complain but it seems really bad this year, no?
Poor Ralphie doesn't know what to think. Being a
SoCal girl this must be a major shock for her! I
took that pic on Wednesday at the Coquihala Summit
on our way to Vernon. Isn't that crazy?? So much
I know, I shouldn't complain, we've had it pretty
good in BC compared to the rest of Canada. My
sister lives in Saskatoon and she said it's
supposed to go down to MINUS 61 with
the windchill this weekend!!!
My friend Susan Vincent from TPI Travel (also from
Saskatoon) posted this on her Facebook and it made
me laugh as it kinda puts things in perspective.
Only 3 more weeks
Anyways, try to stay
warm and have a great month. Please remember if
you need anything we're here to help.

Freddie's Top Ten List
Ten Reasons to Book
Honua Kai Resort & Spa:
Washer/Dryer. I know it doesn't sound like a big
deal but believe me, IT IS A BIG DEAL!! It's so
awesome having high-end washer/dryers in every
9. Size. The units are BIG! Our
2-bedroom unit last October was over 1,200sq
8. Aquatic Playground. The best
pools on Maui hands-down.
7. Duke's BeachHouse
Restaurant. Hula Pie. Mmmmm...
6. Valet Parking. Is there
anything better than pulling up in a convertible
and handing the keys over to let someone else
5. Consistency. Unlike most
condo-style accommodations on Maui, you're not
playing interior design roulette (some units
looking like the 1970's). Every unit is new and
every unit is gorgeously decorated.
4. Kitchens. I'll be the first
to admit I'm not a world-class cook, but even I
appreciated the high-end stainless steel
appliances in every unit.
3. Concierge. Friendly on-site
concierge available to help you book tours or
just to advise you the best places to go
snorkeling or shopping.
2. Internet. Fast & reliable
internet service to update your Facebook,
Twitter, FourSquare, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
1. Location. Hello?? It's located directly on

One of the BEST nightclubs in Mexico -
Christine's Disco at the Krystal Vallarta
This title describes Christine's Disco in Puerto
Vallarta, located on the property of Krystal
Vallarta and steps from the Hilton Puerto Vallarta
Here is the rest of the description as provided by
one of our fine tour operator partners: "Many will
swear by this club, and tell you it is the BEST
nightclub in all of Mexico. They just might be
right, from the moment you step in you will find
yourself walking to the rhythm of the music. This
club is geared to all sorts of music lovers, with
the DJ spinning anything from rock to pop to house
and even hip hop. Make sure to make it there by
midnight so you can take part in the one of a kind
laser show. See if you can keep up with the locals
and dance until the sun comes up at Christine's!
Dance until the sun comes up at Christine's." Note
