Creating better tools to Wander like a local.

From the Founder

Hi there! I’m Lauren, the founder of Wander Like Me.

I am a worldwide traveller and I know how much that in this modern day and age, we want everything at our fingertips without any stress or extra effort.

In 2017 I became a digital nomad. I was travelling to new and different places and didn’t want to waste my time going through all the travel books, websites and friends’ itineraries. They just weren’t making the cut. Not only were the tips outdated and inaccurate, they didn’t actually cover the things I wanted to do.

Let’s be real, I have no desire for my Mom’s travel guide, thanks, but no thanks! The story felt real for so many people. It was like there wasn’t a modernized version of a travel guide that spoke to us millennial peeps. I wanted fully baked itineraries and concierge support. And I wanted it NOW. I knew I wasn’t the only modern day traveler feeling this pain! I started to vlog about my experiences and all of a sudden I was getting weekly requests for my itineraries. The questions started to flow from every area in my life, so I tapped into various travel groups and all of them came back saying that they wanted to travel deeper.

EVERYONE wanted authentic local experiences. They wanted full travel itineraries. Of course, this was nowhere to be found and even though there are a crap load of tools out there, I couldn’t for the life of me find one source or tool to help them plan a trip like that. And Whamo! Wander Like Me was born.

We built a platform that connects the modern traveler to local itineraries across the globe AND you get onsite locals that can support travelers in REAL time from their mobile. Yes, you can even text a local! You plan everything else in your life, so let us do the planning and connect you to the right people.

Wander Like Me gives you instant self-guides chalked-full with all the locals’ tips. The easy to use app, brings you to all the best hidden secrets, gives you a map, restaurant recommendations. No stress, best sites, amazing bites and truly exclusive experiences.

Wander Like Me DM is your real time bff who even sprinkles a little sugar on top to give you local flair inside your typical travel experience. Whether it’s finding a restaurant that serves her favorite vegan dish when her original destination was closed, helping her find Tylenol when she’s hungover or even a new rental car when he may get a flat, we got you covered!

Customers all over the globe are raving about our itineraries because of the new way they are able to access and experience their bucket list travel with more culture, stories and insider tips.
