Sunkissed Stories

Summer stories and African adventures

I remember, at a young age, sunbathing close to my mother by our swimming pool. We were looking at my leg, at the fresh appearance of little brown freckles visible against my tanned skin. My Mom explained, “that’s where the sun kissed you”.

I loved that. I felt blessed.

In my family, I was the first-born and called “the lucky one” ever since I won that heavy, long torch at the sports club raffle.
I’ve been lucky, I’ve been blessed, and I’ve been tested and challenged too. These are some of my stories and adventures.
