Dark Blue Planet / About Us
We love travelling!
Read more below to find out all about us.
For years we had been thinking about travelling around the world.
Rob’s contract just came to an end, and we thought it was time for a change, so after talking it through, we thought now it was the right time to have a break.
Katrine was working with her art contracts, so she wasn’t tied down too much either, and could actually continue doing that on her laptop while travelling.
So, we sold all our stuff, got rid of our apartment and packed our backpacks, with nothing more than 7 days of clothes, and of course our laptops. In the end each one weighed 15Kg, so not too bad
Since it seemed to have rained almost continually for the 3 years we lived in Cardiff, we decided to go somewhere sunny to plan the trip. Rob used to go to Spain a lot as a child as his grand-parents had emigrated there, and since he hadn’t been back for over 20 years, we thought that it could be nice to see it again.
We made it to Spain to a town called Javea on the 14th May, and then we started our planning. At first we thought it would only take a month or so, but in the end its taken us nearly 3 months! Its A LOT of planning to get done, with over 15 flights to plan, and all the things to do in each location, this was some serious project managing
We decided that we would create a web site so that our families, friends and others could see our trip and share our experiences, and thats when we came up with the ‘Dark Blue Planet’.
We will try to post as much as we can, so come back regularly to see what we have been up to.
You can see our route and where we are heading next on the ‘Our Route’ page, selected from the menu at the top.
If you want to contact us, either use the ‘Contact Us’ page on this site, or just send us a message on FaceBook.
Well, until we settle again, thanks for visiting and have fun reading our stories.
We have 2 more web sites, a photography site of our travels, where your can order prints, and also Katrine has her art site:
Rob & Katrine.
