Hola!! Welcome to Where on Planet Earth! Thank you very much for being here ❤️

I am Carla, a full time traveler, storyteller, and foodie. In this newsletter you will find journal posts, short travel stories, recommendations, and personal opinions. Below is a bit about each section. For visuals of our travels and more real-time content please check out our Instagram page.


Real-time weekly journal entries about anything I find interesting or curious about where we are that week, many times about history and culture like why Moroccan Jews *really* left the country or what we learned from the Wayuu people in Colombia, but also introspections and more journal-y posts like why you should do hard things or how I didn’t know I wanted the life I have today. The only section with a set schedule, it goes out every Monday!

Travel Stories

Short stories about the (mis)adventures of traveling full time, and about the interesting connections I make with people and places along the way, like this chance encounter with a Parisian chocolatier or this tale about our time in Meteora Greece.


Where to eat and what to do around the world! Quick recommendations on the places we travel to, like where to eat the best street food in Chiang Mai or how to see Yucatan beyond pretty beaches.

About Us

My partner Alan and I are a Latinx couple with lots of controversial opinions :), like being childfree and shameless and also atheists. Content about us and our personal opinions will live here.
