We are Nico and Marlies Wobben and in February 2008 we moved from the Netherlands to Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada! Nico is an RN at the General Hospital and I (Marlies) work from home, as an administrator at Canada Life and for my own web design business Feel The Fire. And we have 7 cats!

Aaron Provincial Park

We didn’t really like the site that we had booked, so in the morning we switched to a nicer one for another two nights. It’s a beautiful park with friendly people! We walked around, did some trails, Nico did some fishing and I even swam for a bit as it was hot!


Soon we reached the Canadian shield and the scenery changed to trees, lakes and rocks. We had lunch in Falcon Lake (Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba) and reached Ontario shortly after. We visited beautiful Kenora on the Lake Of The Woods – we wanted to spend more time there, but after a few hours we had to leave to make it to Aaron Provincial Park before dark!

Going East!

Going East! We meant to leave on Sunday, but had an emergency with Rider. A bladder stone obstructed the urinary tract, so Rider couldn’t pee and the bladder was very big. This is a painful and dangerous situation, so it had to be flushed back in and after the vacation we will probably have to have the stones surgically removed. Yesterday he was still stoned from the morphine, but okay to travel! We took a break at the A&W in Melville and after noon we arrived in Angusville to visit friends Dries and Anneke. We had fun catching up and the guys went fishing! This morning we left their beautiful acreage to continue our journey east. We didn’t go very far, about four hours further east to the KOA campground west of Winnipeg. Decent campground, good showers and snackbar, nice people, just noisy as it’s right on the 1, which was to be expected. It’ll do for the night!

Motorhoming! 2016 Highlights!

Again a great camping year and we didn’t even go to Ontario yet! Went to Buffalo Pound and Douglas a few times, Duck Mountain, Crooked Lake and Rowan’s Ravine.

Motorhoming! 2015 Highlights!

We visited some beautiful sites this year!! First batch is Buffalo Pound on several occasions, then pics of Crooked Lake, Duck Mountain, Cypress Hills and Echo Lake, and one pics shows how we travel… find all 7 kitties! 😀

Wakaw Grad

We went to Wakaw for Laurens’s Highschool Grad, congrats! The “dry grad” party was at the Molendijks this year! After a few days we woke up to eerie orange lights and smoky skies, it was smoke from the forest fires up north that were only 3.5 hours away!

Motorhoming! 2014 Highlights!

These are from Echo Lake, Candle Lake, Duck Mountain and Buffalo Pound Provincial Parks, we also went to the Hartwell cabin (not really camping though) and to the Rockies with Miranda!

Snow, Red Deer

Waking up to SNOW! Instead of the scenic route, we get the hell out of the mountains and take the highway to Edmonton and then Red Deer, where we are meeting up for the first time with Marjolein and Menno. That was awesome! 🙂

Jasper, Maligne Lake, Bighorn Sheep And A Bear!

Yesterday we took the tramway up the Whistlers Mountain where the views were fantastic! We also drove to the Athabasca Falls and today we took the Maligne Lake Road to hopefully see some wildlife. Well, a lot of bighorn sheep and one bear! Woohoo!

Lake Louise & Moraine, Icefields Parkway

A very busy day! We visited Lake Louise and (very quick as there was no parking spot) Moraine Lake, then went on the Icefields Parkway to Jasper. We stopped at Bow Lake, the Big Bend viewpoint and the Sunwapta Falls before we parked for the night at the Whistlers campground near Jasper, where we saw our first elk!
