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.

Elena

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 costs you way more, what destroys you, is not the fight, but doing nothing, not changing your life, living it the way somebody else wants you to. Fulfilling their dreams, not yours.

Meg

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.
