About Lush Life Travel

Sheila Gallant-Halloran

Sheila is in Ottawa, Ontario, and owner/ operator of Lush Life Travel. Lush Life is an independent affiliate of Vision Travel Solutions Group – 251 Consumers Road, Suite 700, Toronto, Ontario M2J 4R3 – 416-487-5385 – TICO: 50018498 



The concept I’d like to promote to you as my client is to live a LUSH LIFE.

I focus on bucket list, adventure, and luxury travel. I believe that travel helps us all become better global citizens, and by getting to know the world, we get to know ourselves. I like to inspire people to explore and care about the planet, and I embrace sustainable tourism. I am a proud VAST (Virtuoso Active & Specialty Travel) member. I craft travel experiences that contain magic and wonder for each family – whether you travel solo, as a couple, or as a part of a large multi-generational family.

I’ve been doing this 10+ years, but before that I was an actuary for 20 years. I dealt a lot with conventional return on investment (ROI) before, and I deal hourly with RETURN ON LIFE (ROL) now. It’s as if I went from being a true actuary to a happiness actuary! I use all my business experience, training, and attention to detail to ensure your precious vacation time and dollars are invested wisely, and your vacation is done right the first time. Your most precious asset is your time with your family.

What I love most about my whole role as a travel advisor is BUILDING MEMORIES. Whether’s it’s a Galapagos expedition, an African safari, a European river cruise, or even a “fly n’ flop” beach trip; my focus is always about theexperience, and ensuring you do something unique and memorable for your family.

With my focus on bucket list, adventure, and luxury travel, I help you plan lush life memories. As your travel advisor, I give you my 4 A’s : 1.) advice, 2.) access, 3.) advocacy, and 4.) accountability.

Travel writer Pico Iyer says, “luxury is not about what you have, but what you don’t have to worry about.” I take away your worries. I deliver exceptional service, and help you maximize your Return on Life by leveraging my 10,000+ hours (a la Malcolm Gladwell) of working in travel, and leveraging relationships I’ve built with the “best of the best” partners:

    Great piece of copy

    “I am your personal “travel advisor.” And, as your “advisor,” I craft travel experiences that are selected to meet your needs and interests….”

    I’m a travel advisor in Spain dealing only with Spain my adopted country and I love it. I love helping people, organising and most of all dream of doing the very trip they are every single time.

  5. Everything is very open with a precise clarification of the issues.
