A soul-stirring memoir from Colombian immigrant and travel journalist Nikki Vargas, whisking us through the countries that brought her new love, self-discovery, and the inspiration to launch the first international feminist travel magazine, Unearth Women.


At twenty-six years old, life looked a certain way for Nikki Vargas. She'd settled in New York City ready to join the ranks of the Carrie Bradshaws of the world, 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: first to Cartagena. Then to Panama. Then to Iguaz .

What begins with one freelance travel writing assignment escalates into a whirlwind, globe-spanning journey that would transform Nikki's life. Taking her from the street food stalls of Vietnam to the cascading waterfalls of Argentina, Nikki uncovers shocking truths about her family, comes face to face with a new love interest - or two - and ultimately turns a no-name blog into the internationally celebrated venture of Unearth Women, the first major female-focused travel publication.

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, an exhilarating career path - and ultimately a tool to champion women's voices across the world.
