Take a road trip in England, eat with locals in Italy, get lost in an old palace, and completely let go of expectations and immerse yourself.


You simply cannot have one without the other. Here at Wandering Helene, “what grows together, goes together” is a way of life. 


I am Helene, of Wandering Helene. This is my little corner of the internet where I share my experiences traveling and living around Europe.

Currently, I am based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. 

travel, food, + culture

Seeking something a bit more on your travels? You’ve come to the right place. I dig deep into the locations I travel to, through trying local foods, learning about the history, seeing its art, and speaking to the people.
