WHO IS THE LAU FAMILY 
AND WHERE ARE THEY GOING?

WE ARE A TRAVEL OBSESSED FAMILY WHO DECIDED TO CREATE A BLOG TOGETHER TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES.

I am Taryn Lau (wife, Mom, blogger, travel agent) and I create most of the travel content.  Travel planning is my PASSION.  I fell in love with planning vacations after I planned our first trip to Disney World in 2012!  I have been a travel agent for the past 5+ years and this year I joined an AMAZING agency (Goldgell Getaways)!

My husband  Ryan Lau loves traveling as much as I do (almost).  Since we’ve started the blog he has tried to learn everything he can about social media and keeping up with this website.  I think his IT background has helped us a lot with this new project!

Our son Ashtyn Lau has been BEGGING for his own YouTube channel.  I’m not ready for that yet, so he has helped us with our family YouTube channel.  Hopefully that will be good enough for him…  for now!
