That’s me! Hello!

Welcome to Travel Gear Nerd! This site is home to the results of all the research I do – for fun – about the most innovative, multi-functional, and stylish travel gear I can find and use on a regular basis.

My name is Elena. I travel locally on a regular basis, and have completed severalĀ international backpacking trips – some in cities, and some in the middle of nowhere. My mission is to help outfit you with the best travel gear that suitsĀ your needs, so you can focus more on the experience and less on lugging a heavy bag around with you.
