Fresh out of college, Cynthia Clampitt headed for Corporate America. However, though she enjoyed considerable success at two major international corporations, after ten years, it was clear to her that this was not where she belonged. She wanted to write — and she wanted to get as far away as possible from the temptation to remain in the corporate world. Does a sensible, successful woman in her mid-30s walk away from money, security, career just to make a dream come true? Absolutely! And that is exactly what Cynthia did... Australia was a lifelong interest, and it seemed to be the best, furthest place to start over. Clampitt headed for Australia with little more than a suitcase, dreams, and a six-month visa. By the time she left, she had circled and crossed the continent, covering nearly 20,000 miles. After returning home, Cynthia built a new career around her passions of writing, history, travel, and food—though that rebuilding took a few years and a lot of very frugal living. Today, Clampitt is a successful freelance writer, world traveler, and culinary historian. Her clients range from magazines to educational publishers to Colonial Williamsburg. Cynthia has returned several times to Australia, but the sense of adventure awakened during her first visit Down Under has also taken her to Mongolia, Morocco, India, Iceland, Turkey, Tibet, Vietnam, Ecuador, China, and more than a dozen other countries. The dream of starting over came at a price — but the dream has come true!
