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.
In 2009 I was offered a job working in Live Production and made my first big move from Miami to Ibiza. This is where my World travels really began, From 2009-2012 I was touring with DJ Producer David Guetta. He had a rigorous touring schedule , and some of the countries I’ve been to I cant even remember because we were changing cities everyday. 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 started planning side trips around our tour schedule, became really good at logistics, 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!
I started to take an interest in the hospitality industry at age 14 when I joined the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism. I graduated from AOHT in 2007 and completed my BS in Hospitality Management with a Minor In Beverage Management from FIU in 2013. 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!
