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.

Name & Age? Rachel Cunningham, 31.5 ;)
Where's home? Uh, a lot of places. I was born in Australia, but grew up in New Zealand. I've since lived in seven more countries since I was 18. I have many "homes".
What was/is your last/current trip? Just had a month off work — went to Dominican Republic on a road trip, Trinidad for Carnival, Jamaica to relax, Haiti for something different, Miami as a base, and Chicago to visit a friend. It was snowing. I only had summer clothes, needless to say, I didn't stay there too long!
Name & Age? Kae Lani Kennedy, 26
Where's home? Philadelphia, PA
What was/is your last/current trip? I recently went to Panama where I spoke at the Blogger Influencer Week LATAM. Social Media, Blogging, and Influencer campaigns for the travel industry is still a new concept. So it was very exciting to share my passion of digital storytelling with an audience who was so excited to unleash their creativity on social media platforms. After the conference I traveled around the country, visiting the jungles and beaches of Venao, a popular destination for surfers from around the world. I never really got surfer culture. Their laid back lifestyle was a bit too chill for me. But after spending several days at a surfer camp, I must say, my East Coast, Type-A heart melted to let the surfer vibes in
Name & Age? Elaine Ginger, 28
Where's home? Chicago, USA. This is my childhood home and where my parents still welcome me to stay when I am between places. I’m still figuring out where my adulthood home will be. Right now, it’s looking like the French Alps might become it.
What was/is your last/current trip? I came to the French Alps in July 2015 to fulfill my dream of traveling by bicycle and WWOOFing. (It’s starting to look like I’m staying permanently).
In July, I rode the Rhone River from Geneva to the Mediterranean and then circumnavigated Lake Geneva in August. This coming spring/summer I hope to complete the whole Rhone by riding from Geneva to the source of the river in the middle of Switzerland. My WWOOFing experience actually took me to the UK where I spent this last fall working on a couple of small organic farms. I LOVED it; I learned so so much!! I am spending these winter months skiing and planning an organic garden of my own to be started in the spring
