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!

On Our Way To Cana-fkn-da!

» photo albums 2007/CANADA

Today we left home to start our travel back to Canada again. We left at 11am, had a break at Motel Eindhoven to meet up with Jos and Henny who had a DVD for Ton (my brother) and after an hour we continued our trip. We got to Nieuw-Vennep shortly after 3pm and chatted with my sister-in-law Rita for the rest of the afternoon until the rest of the family got home, had dinner and now it’s almost time to turn in. We have to get up early and Ton will drop us off at Amsterdam airport around 7-7.30am. Here’s the flight schedule:

June 2nd
flight 6685 / Amsterdam – London Heathrow 10.10 – 10.25 / airplane 319 (BMI)
flight 899 / London Heathrow – Edmonton Intl. 12.05 – 14.05 / airplane 763 (Air Canada)
flight 8808 / Edmonton Intl. – Regina 19.50 – 21.04 / airplane CRJ (Air Canada Jazz)

We’re going to stay at Tim and Cortney’s in Regina for two weeks (flying back on the 16th). Next Wednesday Nico will have to take the Registered Nurse exam and after that it’s vacation time! We’ll also try to find some emigration-related information on e.g. housing, banking, cars etc.

    Hee Nico en Marlies! Hopen dat jullie een goede vlucht hebben gehad. Nico, heel veel succes met het examen! We branden woensdag een kaars voor je. Ga daarna vrijuit genieten van Regina e.o.! X Carin en Janneke

  • Hoi Marlies @ Nico,
    Zo te lezen zitten jullie nu in het vliegtuig richting Canada, geweldig.
    Heel veel succes Nico met het examen woensdag, spannend hoor!

    Suzanne en ik gaan ook al bijna weg, een maand naar Vancouver Island,
    om ook e.e.a. te verkennen.
    groetjes
