Farewell, World

By Erin

For anyone who shares my passion for traveling, the planning can be one of the best parts. Taking a trip means plotting out where to go, which sites to visit and, of course, what to eat. It's an opportunity to page through travel journals and guidebooks and to live vicariously through other people's experiences. Being an avid traveler, my adventures have always commenced with a trip to Candida's World of Books. The store is dedicated to the literature of wanderlust, with guidebooks, novels, memoirs, children's books and cookbooks from around the world. It has helped me both in supplementing trips to familiar places and inspiring new vacations.

Sadly, the tiny independent travel bookstore, a hub for its free language classes for travelers, will close its doors next week. In preparation for closing Candida's is offering a store-wide discount of 20 percent on books. as well as additional discounts on special items this weekend and Tuesday (the store is closed Monday). If you're a seasoned itinerant looking for your next visit to a far-off, exciting land, be sure to stop in. But my hope is that this gem of a store will inspire one new person to go explore and discover that passion for traveling.
