Start Here

Hey there! You must be new here–so glad you’ve made it! Let’s get to know each other a little bit:

Running Away from Home aspires to be an online travelogue in the old narrative style–so expect lots of stories from the road, not a lot of listicles, and honest talk about the beautiful ways travel changes us. You can find out more about how and why RAFH was started right here. Every week we post stories about travel, mental health, and book reviews. Once a month we bring on a guest to tell us about a time they ran away from home.  Have a story to tell? Write for us!

Don’t forget to sign up for our sorta-weekly notes below, where I share photos and tell more personal stories that don’t make it onto the blog.

Below are some of our most popular posts (or just the ones I like best!)
