Carling Wright, Custom Travel Advisor

Carling was born an adventurer. In fact, some of her first words were “gotta go” – which she would repeat to her parents, belongings in hand, as she raced to the door. Carling’s excitement to get out into the world is a quality that never left her.

Backpacking around Southeast Asia was Carling’s first taste of travel. With every new landscape, from bright blue waters of the Thai islands to the intricate temples of Angkor Wat, she was amazed. This feeling of amazement would return again – standing on top of an active volcano in Nicaragua, and again when the clouds cleared at the top of Machu Picchu.
Carling believes that living is about these moments; moments of both exploration and discovery, and truly experiencing a place and all it has to offer.

As a passionate traveller, Carling joined Civilized Adventures with the goal of connecting others with experiences that will fascinate them in the same way that travel fascinates her. When there is a place where you just “gotta go” to – speak to Carling!

Currently, Carling facilitates for our “hosted group departures”, as well as any pre- and post- trip arrangements that you may desire.


Bolivia: Salar de Uyuni salt flats are still stunning when they are dry – but rainy season here is a natural wonder! This is because a thin layer of water on top of the salt pan reflects its surrounding landscape and sky onto the surface, which creates a wondrous mirrored illusion.

Belize: Enjoy island life to its fullest in the Cayes, whether it is relaxing with a fresh coconut water on the beach or snorkeling/diving at pristine sites among the manatee, rays, turtles, and reef sharks. At sunset, check out the BBQ on the beach, where local favorites are jerk chicken or fresh fish.

Ecuador & Galapagos My partner and I are very satisfied with our first experience with Civilized Adventures. Carling is an amazing trip planner. She's knowledgeable, quick to respond to any requests, concerns or questions about the trip, and her people skills are excellent. She made the experience of planning and then visiting Ecuador completely seamless and enjoyable! I totally recommend her and Civilized Adventures.Lyne Nadeau, 2020
