Welcome to Travel with Carl

Travel, Flying, Advice

Taking my first flight way back in ’98 onboard a Qantas 747 I was instantly addicted to travel. Since that first flight I’ve clocked up over a million kilometres in the air. Travel with Carl aims to capture some of my journeys, share my thoughts on aviation with flight reviews and share my experiences as I learn to shoot and edit some videos. My adventures take me round Australia and the globe. I hope you enjoy my stories as I fly the world by the motto of ‘why fly direct when you can connect’.
