Sustainable adventure+wellness trips for time-starved professionals those who dream BIG

I don't just design trips, I create dreams come true

Welcome Friend!

I'm Shari Block, Owner of Find Your Happy Travels. As a Travel Advisor, I know true adventures go beyond inclusive packages or simply picking incredible destinations. I help discerning, adventurous and curious travellers leave behind the constraints of the everyday and take the epic journeys they have always dreamed of, in the company of like-minded people.

It can be overwhelming (and time-consuming) to choose and plan so I remove the angst from this process, creating itineraries that balance the active with the introspective, are culturally immersive and inspire the confidence to try new things. It is my mission to enrich my clients' lives through exceptional travel experiences.

I'm a Winnipeg-based entrepreneur, school social work consultant and promoter of happiness with big dreams. Obsessed with red wine, hiking, my two chihuahuas (Don Pablo and Mimi), yoga, finding new vegan recipes and (perhaps obvious?) travel.

I didn't always have this business: helping others to take bucket list level trips. In fact, much of my life has been dedicated to education. Both my own, achieving a Masters of Social Work in 2010...and working to ensure all children in my province have the opportunity to receive the education they deserve. I thought I had found my purpose...but the universe had other plans for me and Find Your Happy Travels was born.

When I'm not busy creating unforgettable journeys, you will likely find me cooking up a vegan feast, hiking (weather dependent), on my yoga mat, listening to podcasts or planning my own next trip!

I love what I do...creating personalized and unforgettable trips. It lights me up to hear my clients describe how empowered, free and happy they've become! PLUS: seeing their smiling faces in beautiful places! I am particularly passionate about working with women traveling alone and vegan travel.

I aim to inspire you to broader horizons and exceed all expectations. I want you to come home saying, "Never in my wildest dreams..."

Happy travels,
