Chandi Wyant’s memoir Return to Glow (2017) chronicles her solo trek along Italy’s historic Via Francigena pilgrimage route. The manuscript won 3rd place in the 2015 National Association of Memoir contest. A world traveler, photographer, writer and historian, Chandi has lived in Qatar, India, Italy, Switzerland and England, and has been returning to Italy with unremitting passion since she first lived there at age twenty. She holds a Masters degree in Florentine Renaissance history and is the former head of Sogni Italiani, an events planning firm specializing in weddings, vow renewals, and honeymoons in Italy. When she’s not dreaming in Italian, she can be found teaching history and writing about travel for the Huffington Post and her blog, Paradise of Exiles.
