Inka Piegsa-Quischotte:

Sharing Her Love of Travel

Inka Piegsa-Quischotte is a former attorney turned travel writer, photographer and novelist based in Miami and Istanbul who writes with verve and flair about destinations where it's warm, particularly the Mediterranean World.

She first appeared on GoNOMAD with an article about historical sites on the Island of Samos, quickly followed by articles on Galicia, the Princes' Islands in Turkey, Morocco, Lebanon, and Crete.

Our readers enjoy her enthusiasm for travel, her practical advice, and her ability to get to the heart of a destination.

Her work has appeared in The Expeditioner, Literary Traveler, Travel Thru History, Popular Hispanics, Traveln-on and Smithsonianmag. She blogs regularly for In The Know Traveler and Europe a la Carte and is the local Istanbul writer for Planet Eye Travel. Her personal blogs are thesinglewomantraveler and glamourgrannytravels.com.

She is also the author of Guide to Galicia, a solo woman traveler´s guide to the lesser known regions of Galicia, Spain, Sweet Revenge, a fast-paced novel of betrayal, intrique and adventure, and The Househusbands Club, in which three househusbands embark on a cruise in the South Pacific to sort out their problems.

"The travel writer's life is a very busy one," she writes on her blog, "First there is the travel itself, going off to all the fascinating places you wanted to see and visit all your life. But, being a travel writer means that you do not want to keep it all to yourself; you have the urge to share with others and, hopefully, to inspire them to go too and enjoy as much as you did."
