Elena and Meg, header



We are Elena and Meg. We crossed the planet under our own power and unsupported to be together. We are still on the run. This website is our portal to the world.


People tell me how courageous it was of me to undertake this voyage, but in reality it was the most natural thing I have ever done. What cost me way more, what was destroying me, was not the fight, but doing nothing, not changing my life, living it the way others wanted me to. Fulfilling their dreams, not mine.


Would I do it again? In a heartbeat! Do I have any regrets? Not one. At the train station in Kiev, I watched an amazing young woman take back her life! She changed the universe that day. By running with her, by holding on tight and never giving up, I took back my own life. Nothing will ever be the same again.
