Safartu : Travels with my children


A long, long time ago, she had promised her children that she would write for them some of their adventures. As with most promises, that one took a long time to materialise. However imperfect her writing is, the fullness of the joy in it isn't. The first 2 chapters tell of the birth in 1976 and then again in 1979 of her two sons Christophe and Gregoire and their early life through Kenya, France, Zambia, Italy, Holland. The third chapter, almost 10 years later, is about a holiday, with her children and friends in Jordan. Whilst the fourth chapter is about passing the power, when aged sixty three, to her eldest son during the ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Safartu is available as paperback here and here.
