Name & Age: Philippa (Pippa) Gunn,  36

Where's home? Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada 

What was/is your last/current trip? In the spring of 2014, I quit a professional job working at a museum to fulfill a decade long dream to thru hike 2200 miles on the Appalachian Trail. After spending six months living a very simple life in the woods, I found it impossible to return to the traditional working world. Instead, I spent the winter participating in a self-guided artist residency on a farm in rural Nova Scotia. Afterwards, I moved to British Columbia to work on a horse ranch in the Southern Cariboo, which is where I am living now. So in a sense, I am still ‘travelling’, although I see it more as a ‘pilgrimage’ or ‘lifestyle’.

Name & Age? Michelle DeVona, 33

Where's home? As of right now, it's Portland, Oregon. The concept of "home" has always been somewhat ethereal to me, so I don't know if I will ever be able to attach it to any particular place.

What was/is your last/current trip? I drove across the USA last summer, concentrating mostly in the southwest. Inspired by the novel Blue Highways, by William Least Heat-Moon, I made it a point to stay off interstates as much as possible, traveling instead on more scenic two lane roads. I ended up taking a break in San Diego for a couple weeks before heading up Highway 1, finishing in Seattle. This was actually my first time driving across my own country, so I got a real flavor of the vast landscapes and beauty that surround the open road
