Mumma, on this journey of memories, as I continue to recount your travels across the world, I recall one of the most fun trips to Accra with your siblings. We had a blast with all you septuagenarians doing so many things for the first time. These were experiences and adventures that you had not attempted all of your lives. It was wonderful to watch the brief period for which you all threw caution to the wind and began living by my mantra – if you never try, you will never know.
From saunas to steam rooms, jacuzzis, swimming and wearing trendy bathing suits, to kayaking, wearing ethnic Ghanaian clothing, attempting folk dancing, sailing and even to tasting unique liquors- the list is endless.
Life is all about taking chances, trying new things, having fun, making mistakes and learning from them.
For those few days, life began for you all at the end of your comfort zones.
