I (C1) really fancied that perfect day last weekend – full of good surprises, written, spoken and sung messages, chocolate , the best pizza ever, time out in nature and at our cozy home together with my most favorite beings and a good board game. Already signed up for a sequel in 2021.

I Feel Loved

We had something very special to celebrate yesterday and spent a fabulous day in Sidney by the Sea – even with yummy vegan scones. But before that, I was gifted with a unique and beautiful picture: „Pusby and the Crows“. Thanks so much, C1, for this amazing surprise (and of course our friend Jean-Ann for…

When everybody seems to be enthusiastic about a place we both tend to be rather skeptical – at least it helps to avoid being disappointed in the end. What would Tofino actually be like? Would the famous seaside town on Vancouver Island be a good spot for our first and desperately needed holiday after 1,5…

Down By The Water

On an island the ocean of course is never far away. That’s even more true, if you are living near the coast – as we have been doing for a year now. Yes, this week we had our first „Sooke Anniversary“: one year ago we moved into our house on the West Coast. During the…

So we observed two humpback whales from shore for more than an hour, a mother and her calf. This day had some more spectacular sightings to offer: Botanical Beach with its unique…

Dream On

365 days, or 525.600 minutes (… and you can do the math for the seconds): That’s how long we have been living in Canada now. Exactly one year ago we arrived at the Vancouver International Airport, with three backpacks, one carry-on suitcase and our documents to become Permanent Residents. We knew we wanted to live…

Enjoy The Silence

You haven’t heard from us in a while. First of all: luckily we are safe & sound, not bored, not tired of each other, still working, still able to spend some time in nature nearby (without running into bears, cougars, or other humans) and kind of enjoying the silence – we adapted to the new…
