A New BIG Adventure!


Markus and I are in Tahiti preparing the boat to go to Kiritimati (Christmas Island). It’s around 1200 NM from here straight North towards Hawaii.
We are planing to maybe stay here for the Hurricane season.

We have been doing all kinds of stuff to get prepared as we don’t know how much can be provided over there. We have changed the battery bank as it was not holding up the load. Getting the outboard engine serviced, getting an extra spare pump for the water maker, doing mayor provisioning with food. And even caning meat! 😀


Also the most important thing right now has been visiting the doctor.
Yes, that’s right we have actually been going to the doctor quite regurlary here in French Polynesia as it’s not just the two of us we have to take care of anymore.
We are starting a big new adventure, and that includes a new tiny little crew-member that is going to join us by the end of March. THAT’S RIGHT PEOPLE, WE ARE HAVING A BABY! We are super duper excited!!!!!


I think this is the most amazing thing that I have experienced…. to have a little baby growing in my belly!
We are 4 month pregnant, and it’s been an experience for sure! The first months were a little bit hard with smells that made me sick, hard time to eat. I have been sleeping a lot as I was always tired, and with mood swings! But I’m very lucky to have the best husband in the world! Markus is seriously the most patient and kindest person ever! Im very lucky to have him. He has taken care of me like a queen. Usually it’s like a princess but now I’m a queen! hahaha…. 😀

Today we went to the midwife to do a check up before leaving for our 2 week crossing. The baby’s heart is beating good, and the little one was moving around like a little crazy thing! She had to chase it around my belly to listen to the heart!

Talk about exciting news! I know I haven’t written too much but it’s been a hard secret to keep, that’s my excuse. 😉

Now we will be sailing for 2 weeks without internet.. Just us and the sea! Woohoo!


Cathy, Markus and Baby!
