Who is Sylvia:
Sylvia was born and raised on a farm in Southeastern Manitoba.   Sylvia started working as a travel consultant for Holiday Travel in Steinbach, in 1991 which grew into a management position. She took a break from the travel industry for 10 years to raise her two beautiful daughters. 

Sylvia recently joined the staff of Great Canadian Travel in March 2017 and is looking forward to this new exciting opportunity.  She has had the privilege of travelling the world extensively and has a passion for adventure travel.  When planning the perfect itinerary for her clients she always uses the same attention to detail as she would for herself.

What are Sylvia’s TOP 5 travel experiences:

  • Whitewater kayaking in New Zealand – went over a 21 foot waterfall!
  • Hiking between the charming villages in Cinque Terre, Italy
  • Visited the magnificent Great Wall of China
  • Having dinner at the base of Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica; watching lava spew out of the mountain on a dark night was breathtaking!
  • Scuba diving in Australia at the Great Barrier Reef where some of the fish were bigger than me.

What is Sylvia’s closing comment:
“In the end, it doesn’t matter how many breaths you take but how many moments took your breath away.”  – Shing Xiong

They’ll even tell you how many pints of  Guinness™ it would take to fill that gigantic glass! Read More >
