So much fun...

Mickey had a lot of fun removing the toilet roll, and then went to sleep in the midst of the mess. Little rascal!

Goodbye, Ollie dear

Dear Ollie,
We knew you were not well, and letting you sleep was not an easy decision to make... but we know you were not happy with life any longer.

I think you can safely say that winter has arrived!

Beautiful BC

Creston is truly a beautiful place - my Dad must have been taking 5000 pictures. We're so happy they are enjoying themselves!

VIPS from Winterswijk

Mom and Dad have come over from the Netherlands! This is truly a miracle, because my father had to overcome his claustrophobia.

Our first visitor

When we came back to Canada, we brought back Ronald from the Netherlands. Our first guest and Uru buddy! Needless to say we got to visit Cyan Worlds, the makers of URU, the place where Mur and I spend two years virtually courting.

Where we live

We live in Creston, a sweet little town in the utmost southern part of British Columbia, about 6 km north of the US state of Idaho. Our Victorian house is almost a gingerbread house, so sweet and cozy.

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.

Tuesday, January 10, 2006


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.
