ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Steffani Cameron is a journalist and photographer one year into her dream of globe-trotting as a nomad for a half-decade. The daughter of a contractor and realtor, she grew up learning everything from properly mounting a towel rack to wall-painting prep. After 20 years of running her own home, as a traveler she now goes nowhere without a multitool and duct tape in her gear kit… next to a compact coffee press. Working remotely, she's written for Apartment Therapy, The Kitchn, BuildDirect.com, and more. Follow Steffani Cameron on Twitter.
