About me

Elena is the creator of the leading Muslim travel blog inspiring Muslims to travel the world in style without breaking the bank. She is the first woman to become a Chartered Islamic Marketer (CIMA) in the UK, and over the last decade has built up a wealth of marketing and branding experience in the corporate world. Elena is part of BoardingArea, she inspires thousands of Muslims to travel and experience the world as confident Muslim Travellers.

She is a monthly travel writer for several Muslim lifestyle magazines, she speaks at several international conferences such as the World Halal Travel Summit in Abu Dhabi and the Muslim Lifestyle Expo in the UK. She has thousands of followers on various social media platforms and her articles have been shared thousands of times and republished by various online media outlets. She has been interviewed and worked with international brands and publications.

Coming from a diverse cultural background and travelling across the world Elena realised that there are not many companies that view Muslim travellers for who they are. Recognising their needs and providing services that complement their religion. Her passion is to connect brands with Muslim travellers and provide insights into their needs and concerns.
