Welcome!

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!

Kenora

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.
