At Candid Voyage, my mission is to inspire a change in the way we travel and the way we interact with this planet through the art of story-telling. In today's world, it can be easy to be overcome by despair when we think of the impacts of climate change and the destructive nature of humanity. But I believe strongly in the power of positivity and the possibility for change. By sharing stories across the globe that foster an improved relationship with one another and this beautiful world we call home, we can shift the paradigm from despair to that of joy. So let's save the planet, one story at a time! ​


If you are a travel company or local business owner, I would love to work with you through my artistic platforms to spread your message to a wider audience. Think of me as your very own, independent journalist!

Opportunities for collaboration may include (but not limited to!): 

- Articles and blog posts

"I choose joy over despair. Not because I have my head in the sand, but because joy is what the earth gives me daily and I must return the gift." 

- Robin Wall Kimmerer, "Braiding Sweetgrass" 



let's talk.


"With vivid magical descriptions and a deeply felt personal narrative style, Teresa Schumacher's Candid Voyage calls to mind John Steinbeck's 1962 "Travel's with Charley: In Search of America"


"Teresa's ability to grab the threads of our deepest emotions and put it to words is nothing short of brilliant."


"Tragically beautiful, poignant, honest and raw"


"(Teresa) brings painful reality to life with truth, tenderness, vulnerability & artistry."

- Sommer

"Evocative, funny, and touching." 

- Anne
