How we met

Our story starts in the digital world... with a PC game called "Myst", created by Cyan Worlds. I was an avid Myst fan, and bought every sequel that came out. I just loved the tranquillity of the worlds Cyan created and the puzzles you had to solve.

A trip to the past

And finally, before I start talking about my new life, I'd like to give a summary of some of my past trips and vacations. After this, the memory lane will be over with and then I can start writing about our new life.

Chico and Dandy

I have a confession to make: before I met Murray, I had no less than two other loves in my life.


Sophia was born in Gorinchem, the Netherlands. When she was eight, her parents moved to Winterswijk. She lived there till she met Murray and moved to Canada.


Murray was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. When he was four years old, his family moved to Bermuda. There he grew up, swimming, diving and water skiing.


To my beloved:

Welcome to Murray & Sophia's blog!

Here you can follow our life in the Rockies and have a virtual visit to our home. Enjoy!

In November 2005, Sophia moved from the Netherlands to the Rocky Mountains in Canada. The reason? She was getting married to her first and only love, Murray.

At first they lived in the town of Creston BC, but in 2007, they both decided to pack their belongings including four (currently five) cats and settle in a gorgeous house with the best view in the world. It is situated in a 16 acre paradise, a large field and forest bordered by a river in Erickson (6 km from where they lived). They live right next to town, yet rural enough to see bears, deer and raccoons in their very yard!

Once again welcome to our site, make yourself right at home.

We'd love to hear from you, make sure you drop us a line or two!
