Meet: Rachel Cunningham

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? 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
