Hello world! Welcome to Touring and Exploring.
I’m Carly, a fourth generation born & raised Miami-an. So how did I get here? I didn’t always know I wanted to travel the world, but I have been a frequent flyer since childhood. My Grandparents and parents all worked in aviation, so I grew up with mega flying privileges. I didn’t venture outside the U.S. much until I was 18 and took my first trip to Ibiza, Spain to meet up with my
boyfriend (now husband). When I was 19 I moved to Ibiza, and that’s when I really began to travel. From 2009-2012 my husband and I started touring with David Guetta (who is a pretty famous DJ in the EDM world) and that’s where my world travels began. We toured almost all of Europe those summers, and some of the countries I’ve been to I cant even remember because we were changing cities everyday, sometimes three or four times a day. The whole thing was a blur really. In 2013 I got engaged, graduated from university, put some roots down in Miami and we bought a home.
I soon realized that traveling for work wasn’t going to last forever, so I better start making the most of it while I still can. I began planning side trips around our tour, became really good at logistical planning, and finding off the beaten path adventures. I swore I would never forget where I traveled to again, and that’s how touring and exploring came to life!
My Husband is now on his own tour called Kryoman Live, and I travel with him everywhere as his Production/ Tour manager. Our tour schedule is much more mild these days, but I like it that way. I really get to appreciate and immerse myself in every trip.
I started to take an interest in the hospitality industry at age 14 when I joined the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (AOHT). I graduated from AOHT in 2007 and completed my BA in Hospitality Management with a Minor In Beverage Management from FIU in 2013. Whats a minor in Beverage Management? It basically means I know a lot about Wine and Spirits! I never dropped out of school or took time off from it while I was traveling. I completed my Degree while continuing to be on tour. I think education is important and encourage you all to keep studying while fulfilling your wanderlust!
