Told in transporting detail and candid reflections, Call You When I Land is a soul-stirring memoir from Colombian immigrant and travel writer Nikki Vargas, whisking us through the countries that brought her love, revelations, and the inspiration to launch the feminist travel magazine, Unearth Women.
At twenty-six years old, life felt predictable for Nikki Vargas. She’d settled in New York City, landed an advertising job, and was engaged to her college sweetheart. But between corporate happy hours and wedding dress fittings, she couldn’t shake an underlying sense of imposter syndrome, a voice that kept saying she was rocketing towards a future that didn't look like her. And so, she bought a plane ticket.
What begins as a freelance writing assignment escalates into a globe-spanning, life-transforming journey. Taking her from the streets of Vietnam to the waterfalls of Argentina, Nikki uncovers family secrets, meets a new love interest – or two – and turns a no-name blog into a celebrated women’s travel magazine. Call You When I Land invites readers on a whirlwind adventure as Nikki navigates love, family, career, and her twenties.
