LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
Hi, my name is Elena. I love to enjoy the great outdoors – especially rock climbing, camping, and hiking – with my husband Ryan and our border collie Ziggy.
I have been writing for the tiny living blog The Wayward Home since 2019 and have been a content creator since 2013.
We worked as digital nomads and YouTube creators (Sailing Kittiwake) aboard a 26ft catamaran called Kittiwake and then on a classic Tayana 37 called Skua. Over four years, we sailed from the UK to Greece and then from Europe to the Caribbean. It was fun to boondock full-time in incredible and remote locations.
I love writing about camper conversions, boondocking, camping, and boat life.
Ryan and I hope to get ourselves a small van to convert into a camper soon. In the meantime, I write about the van life to stay up-to-date and keep the dream alive.
Now I live in Italy, near the Alps, with Ryan and Ziggy, who loves the great outdoors as much as we do. I work as a freelance writer and content specialist and spend a lot of my time outdoors.
