We knew that our vacation was real when we purchased four airline tickets
to fly to Calgary from Halifax, Nova Scotia early in the year. Our summers
usually involve travel, but this summer proved to be the ultimate vacation.
Our daughters, Chelsea (16 years) and Emily (13 years), were primed
with anticipation to fly across Canada. Before leaving, final preparations
needed to be pinned down concerning our accommodations. I thought that
I could find bed and breakfast accommodations quite easily within our
budget by using the Internet. That did not happen until I stumbled upon
a website that provided a survey which allowed me to indicate the type
and price range for accommodations in the area we were traveling. I
received a response the next day through email and then a phone call
from Canada West Accommodations. Ellison spent a good hour while I talked
her through our proposed itinerary. She was very helpful and gave me
instant reassurance that she could provide our family with the accommodation
requests that we were hoping to afford. She also provided valuable guidance
of spots to check out that we were not aware of from doing our research.
Patience and interest of our travels were true characteristics that
Ellison portrayed and she produced! It was a great relief to have that
part of our vacation secured.
