Hey there, traveler.

We’ve got something for you.


Oh, don’t worry. It’s not another Top 5 Listacle with no substance. It’s not another “I did Paris” post.

This, friend, is your chance to go deeper.  

If you’ve ever wondered how to connect with people while you travel...

If you’ve wondered how to have authentic experiences in other places...

If you’ve ever struggled to truthfully answer the question “how was your trip?...”

Then the Inspire Travel Summit is for you.

November 27-29, 2018

Meet the hosts

With a shared passion for meaningful travel and yoga, Susan Lambert and Jannan Poppen were introduced by a mutual friend. From their first phone meeting, they knew they would work together in some capacity.

Little did they know, it would happen sooner than later, when synergies aligned and they met for coffee in Greenville, SC. When they both randomly (or not?) ordered egg scrambles with beets and sweet potatoes, they knew their dream of hosting the Inspire Travel Summit would come to life.
