Going on vacation is something everyone is looking forward to, however, it can occasionally cause a feeling of stress and fear that they will miss something as they try to make the most of their stay. Especially a trip from point A to point B or your accommodation. Everyone appreciates and respects that, and so do you, right? According to a recent survey by Booking.com, the world’s leading passenger connection company with the largest selection of amazing accommodation facilities, involving 21.500 travelers from 29 different markets, more than half of global travelers (55%) and 66% of Croatian travelers would love to get a welcome package from the hosts, and among them, 10% of guests (6% for guests from Croatia) would be disappointed if they were not greeted in the room by any welcome gift. Yes, you are the hosts in the family accommodation. Once you understand that and change the whole paradigm, I’m sure you’ll be successful in the long run. That’s the whole philosophy of family accommodation. The sooner you understand this, the easier it will be for you and you will catch the rhythm, because the process of self-regulation of the market has already begun, ie it makes a difference from the weaker, medium and successful ones. A warm welcome is key to me, it makes a difference and most importantly it shows how much you care about the guest. And guests will recognize and reward it. And wherever the trip takes them, more than half of global travelers (51%) expect a more comfortable environment thanks to the engagement of the owner, and 59% of passengers from Croatia expect the same, with almost half of global passengers (48%) actively brings travel (the same is true for 54% of passengers from Croatia). In addition, 44% of guests from Croatia want someone to take care of them and expect the host to give them a warm welcome to ensure they adapt quickly to the new environment. As private accommodation has grown uncontrollably in the past few years, we have reached a point where supply is higher than demand, and this year a good part of private accommodation will certainly be in the red, ie have a worse season. Logically, because the season is expected at the level of the same year, at best, and as the number of tourists is the same, and the total accommodation offer is much higher, someone will be empty-handed. BE A HOST IN FAMILY ACCOMMODATION, NOT REAL ESTATE AGENTS And that’s what new booking.com research says reveals that the fact that someone cares for guests and makes them feel welcome is important to 49% of global travelers to adapt as easily as possible to a new environment. And while many types of non-hotel accommodation offer excellent facilities, many travelers believe that it is the personal approach that will make you feel at home in a facility. It is the household and the real hosts in the family accommodation that are of the greatest value. But, again, those successful, ie better quality accommodation and real hosts in family accommodation will not feel the decline, on the contrary, they will always have a stable business and booking. Today, more than ever, guests have a choice, and they always choose the accommodation that is better, more comfortable and that suits them best. Even your household can be and is crucial when choosing, and even often guests become longtime friends. This difference is made by you as the host in the family accommodation and your relationship with the guest. In this way, you create a base of regular guests who return every year, and you are not dependent on market trends and you do not have the cost of promotion. That’s an imperative, isn’t it? Welcome guests with cold juice, beer, wine, coffee, cakes and some homemade delicacies. Of course, you don’t need the whole lunch, just a small trifle as a sign of attention and welcome. Preferably domestic and local authentic product because that is how you stimulate the local economy, and not to encourage imports through tourism. A personal note such as local tips can be extremely helpful. Information about local delicacies shared by the owner or manager of the facility with guests was rated as the most valuable information that travelers would like to receive in the welcome package (40%), as many as 53% of respondents from Croatia think, as well as recommendations personalized for them. for global travelers, 36% for travelers from Croatia). Treat your guests like a real host, like your friend. After all, our hospitality is our biggest advantage and definitely what we are known for. The big difference is in the emotion, and humans are emotional beings by nature. When you dedicate yourself to someone and show that you care, those are strong emotions and you have a guest forever. But, again, those successful, ie better quality accommodation and real hosts in family accommodation will not feel the decline, on the contrary, they will always have a stable business and booking. Today, more than ever, guests have a choice, and they always choose the accommodation that is better, more comfortable and that suits them best. Lately, there has been a big negative “chase” for family accommodation. While such debates go in the wrong direction, as family accommodation is certainly not a competition to hotels, it is certainly clear how hosts in family accommodation, private landlords and real estate agents should be distinguished. It is necessary to put things in their place, and not in the same basket to put the host in family accommodation that for generations arranges, grows and hosts guests in your home from an apartment in a building rented for tourism and especially from real estate agents. who erected on one plot a building with ten or more apartments exclusively for rent. Thus, 68% of global travelers and 66% of travelers from Croatia agree that providing comfortable accommodation and a second home to guests is for them what makes good hospitality. So be prepared and raise the quality of service, arrange accommodation as if you live in it yourself to feel the feeling and warmth of home and do not forget – the motive for coming is not accommodation, but the destination. The experience and content of the destination is why people travel, so you have to sell the experiences, stories and content of the destination. And the best stories and tips are not known by google, but by the local population. A warm welcome upon arrival at the property can make a difference and help travelers quickly get into the holiday mood. Especially to those guests who travel by car for hours to our destination, waiting at the entrance at the border and breaking through the crowds in our destinations, and often looking for parking.

Share NewsRegional St Vincent opposition leader writes to interim government in Libya by: – September 23, 2011 Share Share Opposition leader Arnhim EustaceKINGSTOWN, St Vincent — St Vincent and the Grenadines opposition leader Arnhim Eustace has written to the National Transition Council (NTC) government in Libya noting the “heroic struggle of the Libyan people to throw off the yoke of dictatorship and oppression”.Eustace’s letter on Wednesday came less than one week after Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves said that his Unity Labour Party administration would “wait and see” before recognizing the NTCThe NTC is a political body formed by anti-Muammar al-Gaddafi forces to represent Libya during the 2011 Libyan civil war, which has pitted these forces against Gaddafi’s regime, which came to office 42 years ago.“The situation is still in a state of flux and will resolve itself completely, sooner or later. Let’s understand this: St Vincent and the Grenadines has diplomatic relations with the state of Libya,” Gonsalves told reporters last week.However, Eustace, in his letter to NTC chair Mustafa Abdul Jalil, said that while the NDP is in opposition the NTC could “be assured of our solidarity”.“In government, we look forward to working with a democratically elected administration of the Libyan people in the promotion and consolidation of shared values of freedom, democracy, national development and respect for fundamental human rights,” Eustace said of the NDP, which lost the December 2010 general elections, the third in a row.The former prime minister said that his party has been following the developments in Libya, where citizens on February 15 began protesting against Gaddafi and his regime, which came to office in a 1969 coup.Eustace described the on-going situation as “the continuing heroic struggle of the Libyan people to throw off the yoke of dictatorship and oppression, under which they were governed, with steadily increasing severity and impunity, for more than four decades”.He said that Vincentians “cannot cease to marvel how a regime, from a state blessed with ample resources, and which projected itself as a progressive and benevolent force for good in the developing world, could be so brutal and heartless in the suppression of its own people.”“It reminds us of one of our traditional sayings: ‘Come see me, and come live with me,’ is two different things!’” Eustace added.The NDP, Eustace said, “empathise fully with the long-suffering Libyan people, and share with you, and all freedom-loving people of the world, profound sentiments of appreciation for the humanitarian and protective role of NATO forces operating in your country, under the rubric of the United Nations mandate.”“It is, in our opinion, ‘a finest hour,’ when the resolve of the struggling forces of freedom and liberation in a country is matched by the principled solidarity and support of the international community,” he added.Eustace, on behalf of his party, saluted “the courageous Libyan people” and congratulated the NTC for its “leadership of the revolutionary struggle … and the notable successes … in the important tasks of establishing order, and anchoring democratic governance” in Libya.Gonsalves said last week “recognition or non-recognition of a government is a matter which always requires careful thought”.His statements came even as many of SVG’s traditional allies have recognised the NTC as the legitimate government in Libya and even as the whereabouts of Gaddafi are unknown.Gonsalves noted that CARICOM had not made a statement regarding recognition of the NTC, adding, “so it’s a wait and see operation” and that “this is not something that you rush into…”“If in fact they become the established government and they are there with their solidity, we will then say at that point, you are recognizing a practical situation,” the prime minister said.The UN Security Council on September 16, ahead of the 66th General Assembly underway in New York, agreed to deploy a mission to Libya to support the country’s transitional authorities in their reconstruction efforts after the end of the conflict.The mission will help with restoring the rule of law, drafting a new constitution, promoting reconciliation and preparing for elections.by Kenton X.

He cannot play again until March 11, which rules him out of Irish’s next two Premiership matches at home to Leicester and away against Exeter. The case was heard by a three-man RFU panel chaired by Jeremy Summers. O’Leary was dismissed early in the second-half at Adams Park, but despite being reduced to 14 men, Irish won 23-20. Press Association London Irish scrum-half Tomas O’Leary has been banned for three weeks following his sending off in last Saturday’s Aviva Premiership game against Wasps. The Ireland international was dismissed for stamping on Wasps flanker James Haskell. O’Leary pleaded guilty to the offence at a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing in London, the RFU announced.
Jermain Defoe is to undergo a medical at Sunderland as he closes in on a return to English football. The Black Cats have turned to the former Tottenham front man after scoring just 18 goals in their opening 21 Barclays Premier League fixtures of the season, with Steven Fletcher, Connor Wickham and Jozy Altidore having contributed only six of them. It is understood chairman Ellis Short and sporting director Lee Congerton have put together a lucrative package to lure Defoe not only back to his native country, but also to the north east after it became clear he was looking for a way out of Major League Soccer after less than a year in America. Sources on Wearside were cautiously optimistic that a deal could be done on Wednesday morning, and that optimism grew when news of the medical emerged. However, the transfer could yet depend on United States international Altidore, whose future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, and his proposed move in the opposite direction. That switch would have to be ratified by MLS, which operates an allocation process, and meet with Altidore’s approval to allow the Defoe transfer to go through. Defoe only joined Toronto during the summer, but, despite having scored 11 goals in 16 league appearances after signing a four-year deal, he has not settled and has been courted by a series of Premier League clubs. He has been training with Spurs, Sunderland’s next league opponents on Saturday, in recent days. The Londoner, who worked briefly with Sunderland boss Gus Poyet during his time at Tottenham, has scored goals throughout his club career and has 19 in 55 appearances for England to his name. That is something Altidore has singularly failed to do since arriving on Wearside from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar in a £6.5million in July 2013. The 25-year-old, who also signed a four-year deal, has scored just three times for the club in 52 outings. Press Association Sport understands the 32-year-old Toronto FC striker will have medical checks within the next 24 hours with a view to completing his switch to the Black Cats. Sunderland have been engaged in advanced talks with Defoe recently and now look to be closing in on a capture they hope will significantly boost their attacking threat. Press Association

The Speaker had been under pressure from lawmakers, particularly, the committee chairmen, to remove Abdulmumin on allegations of unilaterally awarding to his Kiru/Bebeji constituency of Kano State projects worth N4.1 billion, while his committee was working on the budget. This had contributed to the impasse between the legislature and the executive over the budget.President Mihammadu Buhari had refused to sign the budget into law on the ground that the legislators had removed several key projects and inserted theirs. Abdulmumin and his senate counterpart, Senator Danjuma Goje, came under fire for what many termed mishandling of the budget, leading to calls for his removal.Dogara, in making the announcement, said the decision was already reached to replace Abdulmumin, who coincidentally had offered to resign.“He met me and said he does not think he can continue as the committee chairman due to pressure of the work. But the notification came too late, as the House leadership had already concluded plans to remove him from the position,” Dogara said.Abdulmumin, who had left the chambers before the announcement, addressed a press conference where he explained that he had voluntarily resigned after “consultations with my family”, saying his relationship with the Speaker remains a cordial one.But the cordiality lasted less than 24 hours, before the bubble burst between both men.Erstwhile AlliesBoth men, ranking members, were close allies, a situation that came clearly during the tussle for the leadership of the House, when Abdulmumin stood solidly behind Dogara. Abdulmumin had stepped down from contesting for Speaker and thrown his weight behind Dogara, against Femi Gbajabiamila. Dogara emerged Speaker, but the rift between the Consolidation Group, Dogara’s platform, and the Loyalists Group, which backed Gbajabimaila, continued.Abdulmumin was the spokesman for the Consolidation Group. He was, apparently, rewarded with his appointment as chairman of the appropriation committee, which is considered one of the juiciest committees in the National Assembly. Abdulmumin was one of the few who had the ears of the Speaker.AllegationOn Thursday, Abdulmumin released a strongly-worded statement where he accused Dogara, the deputy speaker, Yusuf Sulaiman Lasun, Chief Whip, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, and Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, of allocating to themselves N40 billion, out of the N100 billion earmarked for the entire National Assembly. The lawmaker claimed that his refusal to cover up the deal and remain silent over the allocation of wasteful projects worth N20 billion to the principal officers’ constituencies put him at loggerheads with the House leadership.“My inability to admit into the budget almost N30 billion personal requests from Mr. Speaker and the three other principal officers also became an issue,” Abdulmumin alleged.These, Abdulmumim noted, resulted in attempts to blackmail him by Dogara, who he said constantly reminded him that occupying the coveted position of chairman of appropriation committee was a favour.Abdulmumin added that he had explained to his colleagues how the N100 billion for the National Assembly was allocated at one of the private sessions, and had since been blocked from briefing members on the matter.According to him, “I gave Mr. Speaker statistics of 2,000 new projects introduced into the budget by less than 10 committee chairmen without the knowledge of their committee members. He did nothing about it because he was part of the mess, yet he is talking about improving the budget system. I did nothing wrong. I worked within the rules of the House and instructions of Mr. Speaker.”Abdulmumin said Dogara also took offence at a meeting the Buhari had with the chairmen of the Senate and House committees on appropriation, while working on the budget.“Speaker Dogara took it extremely personal that we saw the president without his knowledge and went on to scuttle all our efforts to help the president during the budget process because he wanted to be seen by the president as the only good man,” he said.DenialThe House has, however, denied Abdulmumin’s allegations, describing them as untrue. The chairman of the Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas, described the allegations as wild and non-issues. He queried why the embattled lawmaker did not make his facts public before now, insisting that they are manufactured because the House removed him.Namdas insisted that Abdulmumin was not removed because of his opposition to the immunity bill. Namdas stated, “After all, he is not the only one who opposed the bill. The bill is still pending before the committee on review of the constitution and it has to be voted upon by each and every member of the House, get Senate concurrence, be endorsed by two-third of the 36 state Houses of Assembly and be assented to by the president. It is a cheap blackmail on the part of Hon. Jibrin to even insinuate that he was removed because he opposed immunity bill.”Dogara, in a series of tweets, said he would not engage in political mudslinging.“I won’t respond to jokes. I’m not a mud wrestler. I owe a word on the subject to my friends on this platform. The rest would be dealt with by the Institution,” he said.Ogor also refuted the allegations and said Abdulmumin “is singing different tunes because he has lost his committee.”A Fractured CampThere are indications that the Speaker would not take the accusations levelled against him lying low. Sources told THISDAY that if not well handled, Abdulmumin may be suspended.“He is fond of issuing threats. One single person cannot hold the House to ransom, it was not very unexpected that this would happen,” a lawmaker said on condition of anonymity.Another legislator noted that the Speaker would have simply hinged his announcement on the fact that Abdulmumin resigned.“The Speaker should not have announced that the decision was already reached to remove him, since he has offered to resign. In this clime, we all know resignation means you know you are about to be sacked. We need peace and stability in the House and he is not someone who would go down quietly, without a fight.”From the beginning of this year things seemed to be quiet in the House, with an air of unity pervading the lower chamber. Many, however, insisted that peace among politicians was always a fragile one, as friends become foes within easily. Yet the current development in the House is surprising, coming from an unexpected quarter.Nigerians are watching to see how the present controversy would unfold in the coming days and weeks.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Erstwhile allies, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and Hon. Jibrin Abdulmumin, clash and upset the peace in the House of Representatives. Damilola Oyedele writesThe plenary last Wednesday at the House of Representatives was smooth with no inkling of what was about to happen. That was before Speaker Yakubu Dogara made the announcement, which, though, certainly, unsurprising to many lawmakers, was not quite expected. He announced the removal of the chairman of the Committee on Appropriation, Hon. Jibrin Abdulmumin, and replaced him with Hon. Mustapha Bala Dawaki.Pressure
