Rachel Horne


Rachel Horne is a full time traveller, freelance writer and author.

Deeply anxious about the state of the Earth, she spent her whole life believing that there must be something wrong with her. One day, she had enough.

Desperate for answers, she set off into the Scottish wilderness with a two-man tent, a mountain of student debt, and a man she had known for four days.

After three long months of wild camping and boiling seaweed for her supper, she made her full-time home in a self-converted Peugeot Boxer with the stranger that she now calls her husband. Powered by solar panels and far too much rice, they travel slowly through Europe’s wild places.

After 2 years on the road, Rachel shares her journey to healing in the Highly Sensitive Nomad book. Her first novel, Heart at Hazel Bridge, is forthcoming.
