About

Carly Barcelona

Hello and welcome to Papers & Airplanes! I’m Carly and this blog focuses on two of my favorite things: books and travel. For me, books and travel are a natural pair. When I’m on the road, I’ve always got a travel book. When I’m home, books transport me around the world. So, here I write guides to help you find your next favorite book and plan your next adventure.

A bit more about me: I was born and raised a few miles north of Los Angeles, went to college in Oregon, and taught English in Italy. I now live Los Angeles with my husband and our dog, where I teach, write, and edit.

In my free time I like to cook, do yoga, and obsess over college football.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy! Cheers!
