For this week’s challenge, we want to know how #PPFarFromHome you’ve ever been!

From the remotest island to the most outlandish, off-the-grid towns — this theme is all about the farthest or furthest you’ve ever been from home. It’s all relative, so take this as you will. Is it the first time you were homesick? Was it your first time traveling somewhere you didn’t speak the language? Maybe it literally took you a full day to get there. Whatever the case, share your stories with us as well as @captainmaji & @oftwolands who are joining in as guest judges!


  1. Post or re-post photos/videos according to your interpretation of the theme between Tuesday, October 23rd and 11:59am EST on Sunday, October 28th*.
  2. Tag #PPFarFromHome in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it).
  3. Take us into the moment with you in your caption by sharing 3-4 sentences.
  4. Check the sample below, get creative, and get going!

*NOTE: Entries must be posted or re-posted (i.e. you cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video) from a public account during the challenge period. Those posted from private accounts and/or posted outside of the challenge period will NOT be considered eligible for feature.

We’ll announce the winner and honorable mentions Monday, October 29th on our Instagram feed based on Quality of ImageQuality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

For @passionpassport‘s #PPFarFromHome challenge // I was traveling through Uzbekistan on my own and encountered several instances when I felt my foreignness was intrusive. Many locations, including this mausoleum, were holy places filled with worshipers and very few travelers. As I continued to move through the country, however, I found that I was enthusiastically invited into mosques despite my foreignness. Uzbekistan showed me that people from all faiths and backgrounds can be kind, warm, and welcoming, despite our differences — that is, if you are willing and patient enough to appreciate them.
