CALL YOU WHEN I LAND is a soul-stirring memoir from Colombian immigrant and Fodor’s Travel Senior Editor, Nikki Vargas, whisking us through the countries that brought her new love, self-discovery, and the inspiration to launch the internationally-sold women's travel magazine, Unearth Women.
At twenty-six years old, life looked a certain way for Nikki. She’d settled in New York City, had landed in a promising advertising career, and was newly engaged to her college sweetheart. But between corporate happy hours and wedding dress fittings, she couldn’t shake a deep underlying sense of imposter syndrome, a voice telling her that she was rocketing towards a future that didn’t look like her. And so, she bought a plane ticket.
Taking her from the street food stalls of Vietnam to the cascading waterfalls of Argentina, Nikki whisks readers away on a coming-of-age journey set against the backdrop of stunning locales. Whether chasing an unlikely career dream around the globe, investigating a mysterious unsolved murder in her family, grappling with heartbreak, navigating new love, or learning how to celebrate success and recover from failure—CALL YOU WHEN I LAND is a memoir that promises to both inspire and transport readers.
Told in transporting detail and candid reflections, CALL YOU WHEN I LAND takes the familiar story of a woman going abroad to find herself and turns it on its head, as the act of traveling becomes, for Nikki, a life-transforming endeavor – and ultimately a tool to champion women’s voices across the world.
