Sketching on Lake Iznik in Turkey was a true highlight from my time on the Evliya Çelebi Way...I'm excited to finally share the sketch (and it's free for you to download!):

New post! Everything you need to know about traveling alone in India as a woman....well, almost everything:

The thought of a single woman traveling alone in India can be daunting, but I hope this practical advice will help you feel prepared for your solo trip.

New post! Decisions are like dominoes, and other fun (and not-so-fun) lessons that 2013 taught me:

As I look back over 2013 in review, I'm filled with a tremendous amount of gratitude for the lessons and gifts that this year held.

Writer and sketch artist in love with the world.
Introduction

In 2008, I graduated from the University of Virginia with an English degree I soon realized wasn’t the most practical of choices. But then two friends offered me a serendipitous invitation: “Candace, come to London with us.” Little did I know how much those six words would change my life. This journey has since taken me from a Tahitian black pearl farm to a rickshaw run across India to Kingston University in London, where I got my Masters in Travel Writing and began my memoir-in-progress, The Only Courage. 

Read more at The Great Affair, and please say hello!

Bragging rights
Drove an auto-rickshaw 2,000 miles across India.
