Just before entering 2012, there was this magical encounter…
Alice and Muhammed met in a tipi, one festive night after the solstice. They smiled to each other with trance drumming and didgeridoos on the background, thrilled by the luck to be part of that anarchist community and enjoy the warm Andaluz winter.
She was there with her son, 6 years old David, providing him alternative education and lifestyle and allowing him freedom and wild nature.
Three months later, David left to spend time with his father back in Dacia and Alice decided to visit a dear friend in Denmark.
Muhammed joined the travel, so they started hichhiking together north.
Camping in Christiania, free love and joy embodied, there came new life to be born from them.
They invested in a cargo bike and pedaled romanticaly till north of Denmark. Used boat and sent the bike further north, Alice discovered she was pregnant just after reaching the Arctic Circle.
So they decided to stay in the forest and prepare for welcoming their child.
They built a nest deep into the wild and peacefully delivered their firts daughter.
The Aurora Borealis was dancing in the skies and the infamous solstice of 2012 was of little importance for the new family.
They considered gifting their daughter sovereignty, but the moment they steped out from the forest, the state threatened with kidnapping their new born if numbers not related to her person, so they had to compel, accepting it would be easier to move around in the world, but than bureaucracy and unprofessional social entities turned it into a struggle.
David was eager to meet his mother and little sister and wanted to return to the community in Iberia where they had such great time, so the family decided to travel south, without passport…
All together, they went living in a tiny stone house, with garden and peace.
Drinking water that have never sit still with berries fragrance …
…and no bothers…
And they travelled around enjoying the sun…
The family spent a winter in an oranges and olives farm of a lovely Saharan mother of three…
Norvegian media came visit to renew the story of the baby born in the forest… and without papers. It was 3 days of filming and debating, but the final result was beyond disappointing. Blogging is better.
In the spring…David went to spend time with his grandparents. His sister and her parents went on exploring Portugal, gathering loads of gorgeous memories …
…bought a couple of second hand bikes and camped in the mountains of Algarve
…Played music on the streets whenever they felt like sharing their joy…
…and invested precious time into connecting and recharging with the mighty Ocean…
Keeping in touch with David
Devouring fruits in the sunshine
…and endless marvels
They checked out a rainbow community
And headed back crossing Europe with the 1 and a half years old still without documents, with the hope to go back to her origin place and fix it.
They got one more cargo bike and took the ferry to Norway. The whole journey held a few adventures but things went quite smooth and, at the end of the summer… they were back north.
The family enjoyed the scandinavian autumn and the magical forest full of berries and wonders
Camping in the yard of friends
Or put up a camp in the forest outside the city
In October 2014, the family moved to a surreal island above the Arctic Circle. David went to state school in the 4th grade. Ayo received state confirmation for her existence at almost 2 years old.
Writing new songs
And Muhammed recorded some new tracks for an upcomming album
A new member of the family started preparing to join them and the winter went on peaceful.
Ea arrived after the summer solstice of 2015, spiraling her way out… home, into the water, near the Ocean, with gentle, unassisted birth.
Afer 3 hours of easy labour, the family welcomed her, no crying when meeting the new World, peaceful and smooth, also allowed the placenta to fall by itself.
The summer was spent with midnight sun and plenty of joy.
Than… it felt like the time to move again arrived.
So with the invitation from fate to go make a base for the children, save an ancient virgin forest and plant hundreds of fruit trees, the family left Scandinavia and headed to Wild Carpathia , where a sunny piece of paradise was going to host their few belongings, such that the next journeys could be lighter …
Yes, a solar panel can be brought by plane!
The Sanctuary… and beyond! :
Where there is flowers, there is bees and buterflies
Sun warm bath
On the highway
Guardians of the Green
Harvesting fruits of Mother Earth
No WiFi nor telephone signal inside the stone house, but some bits of SuperMarioBros
and selected video entertainment
and food rituals
Show must go on!
…and spaces of tranquility
The World is big and so are Dreams!
WE LIVE DREAMS!
