About the Gals

Welcome to our blog!

Thank you for visiting our little corner of the Internet. Our blog focuses on the things that are very important to us: travel, family, and living a healthy lifestyle. This blog was started by the three traveling gals: Ashley, Kary, and Carol (daughter, mom, and grandma). Our best memories as a family usually involve one of the many trips we’ve taken together.

With this blog we want to share our experiences on the different trips we go on, healthy recipes, travel tips, and whatever else we think might be helpful to our readers! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Now A Little About Us…

Carol: It was always my love of people that inspired me to run the Single Gourmet Dining and Travel Club for over 20 years. It was my even greater love of family that convinced me that our three generations have the opportunity to share the educational experiences and treasures of traveling together. In thinking back on all those exciting years, it reminded me of how many interesting people that crossed our paths and all the new friends and acquaintances that were made through our journeys. It truly gifted my family and I with so many unforgettable opportunities to explore. It opened our hearts and minds to other surroundings and cultures that we would have never had the chance to share. Traveling makes history come alive. Stories are no longer pictures in a travel book, but tangible memories that you remember, share and cherish forever.”

Kary: The experience of travel to new places and cultures is the greatest and most interesting part of life! I have been lucky enough to have visited 6 continents and over 40 countries with the other traveling gals, but that is only the beginning! I am passionate about healthy, plant-based eating and staying active both at home and on the road.  I am an avid reader of travel journals and essays to inspire me. I am from Chicago, but made the change to live in Sarasota a few years ago and have not looked back I miss the hustle and bustle of city life, but it can’t compare to the beach and sunshine every day.  When not able to travel far, I travel near as a frequent and enthusiastic guest of Disney, making the most of what the World has to offer.”

Ashley: I am sure you can see why I love to travel! My family has always placed an importance on learning about and experiencing other cultures. My goal is to visit all 7 continents (5 down, 2 to go!) and continuing to travel, both abroad and within the United States. I graduated from the University of Tampa with a degree in International Business and am very interested in learning about how other countries do business. I have been lucky enough to travel to some very neat and interesting places and am so excited to share all of my experiences and tips with you. Although I am the creator of the blog and will be the main person running The Traveling Gals, I would have never had this idea if it weren’t for my mom and grandma. Also, I love going to Disney World love sharing my adventures there as well. Enjoy!”
