Fisherman's art on Fakarava atoll in the Tuamotu archipelago.

Greetings from Fakarava, or as the crew likes to say, Fuuuuuuukarava. You get it, right? It is very handy. I may use it in the future. Today was our first day ashore, although we had only 2 hours to check things out before the crew was done unloading cargo. Angela, Erke and I attempted a […]

Aranui 3 – Freighter to Paradise: Day 1

Posted by on June 25, 2011 at 6:59 pm
My bunk, C14, in the Aranui dorm. Home away from home for 2 weeks.

Let me start this post by saying that you will get sick of hearing how much I loved the Aranui 3 – the freighter to paradise. I loved the ship, I loved the Marquesas and I especially loved the crew. I loved every single moment on board, so get ready for a love-fest. Can I […]

Selling produce in Papeete's central market.

Well after 2 flights, 20 hours in transit and several glasses of Champagne on the plane, I finally made it to Tahiti! Papeete is much more bustling than I anticipated. A riot of scooters, motorcycles and French cars cruising up and down the main road. But the colors, ah the colors. I went on a […]

Carly - all geared up and ready to go.

Today I started my trip, bright and early, at 6:30 am in the Cleveland Airport La Quinta. I loaded up my 39 pound backpack, strapped it on, and marched out of the hotel and into my dream. Cleveland to LA. LA to Tahiti. Let the adventure begin.

Looking back on it, 2010 was a pretty good year. I accomplished more than I give myself credit for. My trip around the world has already led me to new friends and new experiences, all without setting foot outside the U.S.A. Flights, freighters and motorcycles here I come! 2011 is finally here. Welcome to paradise.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot: International Travel Vaccinations

Posted by on May 14, 2010 at 11:55 pm

A few weeks ago I was in my home town of Canton, Ohio, catching up with my high school girl friends Stephanie, Christy and Julie. We all reconnected a few years ago thanks to the miracle of Facebook. While we sipped tea and knoshed on finger sandwiches and pastries at the First Ladies Tea Room, […]
