My Background

Life is an adventure! In 2014 I sold my condo and possessions in order to travel the world. I spent the next two and a half years living a nomadic lifestyle as a traveling travel agent, professional photographer and travel writer. Over the years, I've lived in or visited 40+ countries. I've experienced local living and luxury travel in many forms. Although I am based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, you can rest assured that no matter where I lay my head at night, I am always committed to taking care of my client's needs. After all, it is your adventurous spirit and love of luxury travel that allows us both to explore this amazing world!

On top of the exceptional relationships I've built with Virtuoso suppliers, I can give you first hand knowledge and recommendations from my own luxury and adventure travel experiences.

I've enjoyed an Ama Waterways River Cruise on the beautiful Chobe River in Namibia and Botswana. My favourite Virtuoso Property (so far) has been the incredible Royal Livingstone in Zambia where the service of the professional and friendly staff make your stay extra special. And, I can't forget my old-world experience on board the Blue Train through South Africa. I've been on no less than 10 different Urban Adventures day tours in countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Argentina and Turkey. And, I've done group travel with G Adventures to Belize, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Peru. And that's just to name a few!

I look forward to sharing my passion for travel and adventure and helping you have the most amazing trip ever. Get in touch today!

Shari is Amazing!

By: KB

Reviewed on: 09 Nov 2017

I've known and worked with Shari for a few years now. She has arranged several trips for me including: Iceland, a Starclippers tallship sailing and two trips to Africa. I can always rely on her to provide sound advise on hotels and activities. She has taken the time to get to know me and therefore, knows what I would like and what would not suit me at all. I appreciate her honesty rather than trying to sell me something to benefit herself. She has provided travel advice and done bookings for me at even when she is halfway round the world herself and works hard to try to get deals or discounts. Every little bit helps, It makes me feel valued as a client. I would not hesitate to use Shari for my travels and in fact, she is currently working on another booking for me.

Shari showed attention to detail, caring and sharing, was observant of changing conditions and was flexible in planning each day. She took charge of any necessary details and was fully prepared for the trip. Travelling with her was very reassuring.

Understands her clients & ready to help!

I'm a repeat customer of Shari's and happy to recommend her services to other travelers. I'm pretty independent, but for my most recent trip, I had some pretty specific travel requirements. Shari was happy to investigate and provide options, and found me a solution that was exactly what I was looking for, at a terrific price to boot. Thanks!

Getting to and fro

Shari helped me arrange my trip for this fall. She was able to arrange it so I could meet up with my traveling companion part way through my trip and then travel together. Our itinerary was a little complicated but she was able to get us there and back.

Trip to St Lucia

By: Kat & Larry

Reviewed on: 04 Feb 2018

Shari is awesome and very patient! We attended a travel presentation not knowing where we wanted to go. She helped us find the rep for Sandals resorts and worked with all of us to choose the best resort option and dates that worked with our availability. The resort was perfect! She also contacted us when she found out about a death in the family and again during a small medical issue should we need to change our return if necessary. Thankfully we didn’t and we’re finally able to relax and enjoy. She was helpful, professional and a joy to work with.

Excellent Experience

By: TravelersNS

Reviewed on: 26 Feb 2018

Working w/ Shari has always made traveling just that bit easier - especially with multiple stops required for both trips booked under her care recently. Having her professionalism and insight saved a lot of stress and unnecessary logistics, and I would recommend working with Shari to anyone.

Our trip to Thailand

By: Sheila

Reviewed on: 02 Mar 2018

Shari was excellent! After meeting with her and reviewing what we were hoping for with respect to flights, resorts etc. She picked out the perfect resorts for the locations we were looking at and managed to keep us within our price range. They were all A1. Our flights were excellent. She stayed in touch with us and checked in with us to make make sure we got to our destination safely and back home again. We had to return a little early and she immediately made all of the arrangements for us. We loved working with Shari. I would highly recommend Shari. She made everything so easy...we connected with her immediately.

Simply the best!
