We Are Family

Not only do we have a little „Puss in Boots“ in our house – now we share it with a little whale rider as well: Paikea! She is a black and white tuxedo cat. That’s why she was originally named Orca. The very cute Pai is another rescue kitten. Someone found her in the woods…

Peace

Happy Holidays – and a Happy New Year (even a new decade) to all of you, hopefully filled with peace, love and adventures! Or as Neil Gaiman put it: “I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that…

Christmas Island

‚Tis the season to be jolly … the first one we experience in Canada. And how colourful, shining and sparkling it is! Almost everywhere we look, there are gleaming, glittering houses, gardens and trees – even one of the most beautiful Christmas trees stands right here in Sooke, at least in our opinion. On Whiffin…

Sweetest Perfection

Our house is not what it used to be. Suddenly the rooms are filled with strange noises, action and cuteness. We’ve got a new roommate, a very fluffy one: May we introduce to you – the one and only Pusby. Pusby is a 15-weeks-old kitten. A non-profit charity named Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue rescued her…

All Sparks

Time flies, indeed! 6 months ago we arrived with a ferry on the island. We have experienced, seen, learned so much during that time – and have written about that on this blog. One thing that never ceases to amaze us: The generosity of (more or less) strangers. People in Canada are very, very friendly…

Just Can’t Get Enough

An Ordinary Life

Hello everyday life – it’s nice to have you back! The last few months have been a marathon – organizing an immigration, packing up all our stuff, getting rid of a lot of things, dealing with the moving company, the realtor and the property management in Munich, saying goodbye to friends and family, leaving the…

Happy House

How lovely it is to live by the ocean – we still are in constant awe. It takes us just a few minutes to reach one of many beaches, we just have to decide which one to choose. This week we picked the following two – and discovered that sunsets are breathtaking in this part…

Knock, Knock, Trick Or Treat

On a dark, cold night at the end of October there were some strange sightings in the small town of Sooke, B.C. Some people caught a glimpse of a huge furry animal – but not a bear. It seemed to be a crazy laughing cat whose name is Cat … but with a hat?! Others…

Here And Now

We had something to celebrate this week. For a special occasion demands a special location – we celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the majestic Empress Hotel in Victoria. More precisely: We enjoyed their famous afternoon tea. What a bliss it was – and how delicious! We were served several treats, just as tradition demands:…
