About us

Hello there! Let us introduce ourselves; we are Norma and Rob. Two two of us met in Playa del Carmen, Norma is from Mexico and Rob is from Canada. It’s nice to meet you. Thank you for following our adventures as we travel around the galaxy.

Travel Around the Galaxy

Why Travel Around the Galaxy? We started this website in 2017 and all the other good names were taken. We decided that since we couldn’t travel around the world, we would travel around the galaxy instead. Plus, we figure it gives us a head start on any space companies looking for travel writers to promote their new space hotels or Mars colonies.

Speaking of which, if you would like to work with us on any Earth based travel, we’re pretty into that too.

Work With Us

We would love the opportunity to work alongside similar minded travel companies, websites or brands. If you have any questions on how you can make this a reality, please contact us by either:

Who are we?

We are two lovely people who decided that our love of travel needed to be shared with the world. Norma is from Tepechitlan, Zacatecas (Mexico) and Rob is from Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada). We are both photographers and we needed a creative outlet for our pictures and stories. We decided to make this whole thing happen after we traveled around Mexico and South America for two months back in 2017.

We currently live on Cozumel, a Caribbean island off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. We have been here for just under two years now and have enjoyed exploring this little piece of paradise. We have traveled all over the Riviera Maya as well, sampling all the region has to offer. We have traveled together to Tikal, Havana, South America, New York City, the Canadian Rockies and most recently Central Mexico.

We’ve experienced so many highlights – from Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls to the Canadian National Parks like Jasper and Banff – and we have so much to tell you about! We’re especially excited that you’ve even read this far.

We hope you enjoy following the adventures of Norma and Rob as we Travel Around the Galaxy.

About Us

The two of us are bonded by our love of travel, nature, and adventure. We’re both in our mid-30’s and love learning more about the world. We currently live together in San Miguel de Cozumel, Mexico.

We have many trips planned over the next few years, especially around our current home base on the Riviera Maya. We’re always exploring North America, from Mexico to Canada, and have a short trip to Europe coming up in the summer of 2020. We have hearts set on a great adventure to South East Asia in 2021/22.

We are excited to explore the world and share what we find!

… is originally from Tepechitlan (Zacatecas State) in Central Mexico. She has traveled to 12 countries on 3 continents and like many of us has fallen in love with travel. She works in hotel hospitality, but her true passion is travel, photography and adventure.

She studied photography in Guadalajara and has lived abroad in Canada. She has lived on the Yucatan Peninsula for over 5 years now (Cancun, Playa del Carmen and now Cozumel).


… was born in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada and has lived most of his life there. His love of travel started in 2000 and has taken over his life ever since. So far, he has been to 38 countries on 5 continents – with many more adventures planned. When not traveling, he has worked primarily in restaurant hospitality over the last 10+ years. A self-taught photographer, his personal photography blog can be found at
