Meet: Mavi Parra

Name & Age? Mavi Parra - 28 

Where's home? Pichilemu, Chile

What got you started? Ever since I moved to Chile 5 years ago everyone told me about how beautiful the south was so I needed to see it for myself. Also, I decided to give myself a challenge and see how far I could go while spending the least amount of money possible, as well as proving that hitchhiking and backpacking on my own as a woman isn't nearly as dangerous as it's made out to be.

Name & Age? Arielle, 20

Where's home? Nanakuli, Hawaii.

What got you started? I started traveling with my family to see my grandparents in California, then took a leap to study abroad in Europe.  Although that fueled my passion for destinations, my actual start in the act of traveling came the summer after my freshman year, when I vagabonded up the West Coast of America and Canada and have travelled on my downtime ever since.
