I’ve had a few requests for some old travelling stories, so I thought I’d do an occasional random post from before I started blogging (because, really, all the most interesting stuff was before we moved to Australia when I started this blog).
So, the first one will be my pregnancy, in honour of Littletree’s birthday :)
Littletree was conceived on a yacht in Amsterdam. Purple and I were living on the yacht, preparing to sail to Brazil. She was an awesome boat, and we worked hard getting her seaworthy.
Lying in a hammock off the boom over the water while the boat is sailing is AWESOME.
I don’t have all that many pregnancy photos (something I regret) but here’s me at about four months teaching a crochet workshop at a rainbow gathering in Israel
And at five months at Avebury stone circle in England
Seven months in Lençois, Bahia.
Eight months in Arembepe community, Bahia
Me with Purple at the World Rainbow Gathering in Brazil (he looked pretty different back then!) (photo from Chad)
Nine months at the rainbow – I used to swim out to this rock and sit every day.
And I’d sit in this perfect “natural jacuzzi” as well (photo from Simon)
Nine-and-a-half months (and over it) inside our tipi
I think that’s all my pregnancy photos. I don’t have any from when I was in Germany or Israel. I did manage to get on the TV news in Athens when I was 5 months pregnant though!
