Welcome to Inspire To Wander!

Inspire To Wander is a travel community where our motto is: travel is for everyone. We think that travel is attainable for anyone, no matter what. If you want to travel more, we’ll help you achieve this goal…along with our community of travel lovers.

Inspire To Wander is operated and hosted by two Canadian friends, travel lovers, and travel bloggers: Lauren of Justin Plus Lauren and Lindsay of I’ve Been Bit.

Welcome to Inspire To Wander, a Travel Community


Lauren is a part-time traveler who spends most of her days in Canada, going on exciting worldwide adventures as much as possible. She lives with her boyfriend, Justin, and they share their apartment with two rescued cats, Chickpea and Tiny.

She loves nature, animals, and both urban and outdoor adventures. Lauren aims to show that it’s possible to travel in a way that’s both eco-friendly and responsible towards wildlife. She adores long walks, hiking, biking, snorkeling, kayaking, and she’s always up for new challenges.

As a lifelong vegetarian and longtime vegan, Lauren finds amazing plant-based cuisine on her travels. Her other interests include yoga, reading, cooking, knitting, listening to music and going to concerts (especially indie rock), and playing video games (especially classic arcade games and pinball machines).


Lindsay is a part-time traveler who has been bit by the travel bug. A graphic designer by trade, but a wanderer by heart. If Lindsay can spend hours in Photoshop designing, illustrating or editing photos, she’s a happy camper! But, when she isn’t behind the computer screen, you’ll find her out gallivanting the countryside and seeing the world.

For the past five years, travel is the main consistent element in Lindsay’s life. Throughout university, she moved for work placements and never lived in the same spot twice, even after moving back home. She finds comfort in the constant change of scenery, and easily gets cabin fever.

Join Lindsay as she hikes new trails, discovers waterfalls, and indulges in anything local from coffee shops to wineries.
