    Hi, I’m Kristin Hanes!

    I’m a former journalist turned blogger at The Wayward Home. I split my time between a DIY Sprinter van conversion and a sailboat, and I hope to inspire you to live a simpler, more adventurous, alternative lifestyle.

    I’ve been living tiny since 2016, when I was laid-off from KGO Radio in San Francisco and had to reinvent my life.
