After 20 years of running various forms of varp.net, we have embarked on a new website and a new journey. ROWDY PLANET – a more focused web site, designed with the intention of providing tips, help and information to families like us who have kids, love photography, and want to travel to interesting destinations to provide historical, natural or cultural experiences to their kids. Teaching them how to pause, observe and learn – that is, go a step further than a rushed tourist would do. We have moved most of the relevant content over to the new site, and will be posting all textual content there moving forward – so check us out at http://rowdyplanet.com/. varp.net won’t die though. It will be an exclusively photography focused website and I will continue to post photographs and galleries.
