Travelling Namibia, Being Pregnant & Blogging
Sometime during the last three or four months I must have lost my mind… or I had exceptional high hopes for myself and my ever growing bump. Not only did I consider travelling up to Epupa Falls over the past weekend, I also thought that maybe we’ll be able to do another Etosha trip. I further set out a program to write and blog up unto the 25th September – exactly 10 days before my due date. Of course, as a first timer, I did not consider the possibility that at some point, my bump will absorb more energy than I can possibly imagine or that my bump will become a rather uncomfortable attachment to my body. Especially when a toe gets stuck somewhere underneath a rib.
Needless to say, we did not travel this weekend to Epupa and I had to be happy with photos sent to me from the rest of the family via Whatsapp. The Etosha trip has also been postponed to ‘after Rocco is born’. (The only travelling I now do is to the baby store to buy whatever babies seem to need and that is tiring!) And this morning, as I tried to open my eyes after a night of restless sleep (apparently this is normal for pregnant women), I realised, that working 8am until 5pm every day up to the 25th might just not happen… Not with a boy that might decide to come earlier than the 25th…
So this is to say goodbye to all my followers. I will not completely stop writing, but writing will become rather irregular over the next few months… and depending on the temperament of our little man… this might either be a very long irregular period or just a while.
To every traveler coming to Namibia over the next few months, I hope you have the time of your life! May you absorb the beauty of this country through your skin, may you observe and learn and may you return home leaving nothing but your footprints and taking with you a lifetime of memories.
So long dear traveler!
