My name is John Carter and I am the CEO and Founder of TravelsbyJC. I am a Travel Insider focusing within the Hospitality and Tourism Industry, Fitness Journalist and a frequent flyer which is a major aspect in my life. Throughout my time in the Travel Industry I’ve had the great pleasure of visiting amazing destinations such as: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Greece, Istanbul, Lisbon, London, Barcelona and Austria – just a few of my favorite destinations I’ve traveled to. When I am not in the ground, I am traveling somewhere that I haven’t been before & when I am not traveling I am on the hunt to book my next adventure. So far throughout 2015 I have flown well over 100,000 miles & averaging 4-5 trips a month (Long hauls & Ultra long hauls) and International destinations are my favorite with a few domestic trips in between. I’ve had the great honor and pleasure to work with the following airlines and companies on a variety of exciting projects: American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Philippine Airlines, Sheraton Hotel Boston, and last but not least the great team at Boeing covering their latest and exciting aviation news and I have also been a guest for CheapOair discussing Travel & Fitness on their weekly Twitter Chat. I’ve also had the pleasure to work as Media Guest with a variety of Tourism Boards during my travels for example: Hong Kong Tourism Board, Abu Dhabi Tourism Board and the Dubai Tourism Board.
During my travels I like to cover different aspects such as: Transportation, Restaurants, Hotels, Tourist attractions, Aircraft products such as First, Business class, and sometimes the Main Cabin extra/Economy Class. Also, one of my favorite departments to cover are airport lounges and most importantly I like sharing key health and fitness tips while being on the road. One of my favorite parts of traveling is being able to experience the lifestyle of each country I visit and connecting with the locals. On this blog I will be sharing some of my journeys with you all across the globe and covering top travel tips for seasonal & business travelers, while sharing the first hand experience to every adventure I go on with the mission of making your travels easier and exciting.
I am also an Executive Platinum with American Airlines, which is always my airline of choice while also flying with the OneWorld Alliance Partners such as British Airways and Cathay Pacific. I will be sharing with you all some of my trips with American, my airport adventures and the great benefits that this status offers for those willing to fly 100,000 miles a year. Besides those carriers, I am always looking to fly others that catch my eye such as Etihad Airways being one of my primary carriers while being the Middle East.
Aside from working extensively in the travel industry, I have been following my passion and working in the Fitness Industry for over 10 years and have been published in over 150 magazines World Wide, some of them are: Men’s Fitness Magazine UK & US, Inside Fitness & STATUS Fitness Magazine in Canada, Physique Magazine & Extra Fit Magazine in Dubai, X-Fitness Magazine in Serbia & many others around the World focusing on motivating people & sharing tips on how to stay fit & healthy on the road and while being on the ground. I am also the owner of JohnCarter.Fitness sharing The Realistic approach to a Healthier Lifestyle. I have produced my own Fitness DVD in Europe known as the 5 Minute Shaper where I am the lead trainer & spokesperson for.
Aside from all the traveling & fitness related work, I am passionate about helping the community and people in need as I am constantly working with different Non Profit organizations around The World to make a difference.
Wishing you all Happy flying & smooth landings!
