Like for many people, travelling is an important part of my life. I have a real passion for it and have been fortunate enough to visit some amazing countries like Australia, Philippines, USA, Israel and Japan. I’ve also pretty much covered all of Europe!

Being from a small rural village in south east Poland, travelling was always something considered out of reach for many and mainly associated with wealthy people. I could only dream of getting on a plane and going somewhere hot and tropical.

My passion for travelling and desire to discover new places and cultures definitely comes from my dad. I have fond memories of watching travel programmes in wonderment at home with him when I was young. Although he hadn’t traveled anywhere outside Poland in his life my dad’s knowledge of different countries, cultures and religions was incredible!

After years of being able to travel wherever I wanted to I decided it was time to treat my dad to a trip of a lifetime. He is a great man who has worked extremely hard throughout his life, sometimes holding down two jobs at the same time through rough times, to provide for our family. I wanted to say a big “thank you” to him for being such a great dad.

If you take one thing away from this story please let it be that, if you are in a position to do so, you should take the time and make the effort to treat your closest friends and family. It truly is one of the best feelings in the world!

In early 2015 my fiancé and I booked flights to Singapore and, later that week, told my dad that he had a ticket too!

The trip was planned for November that year and would also incorporate a trip to Bali, Lombok and the Gili Islands in Indonesia

It was an amazing feeling watching my dad seeing and doing things for the first time

Simple things that many of us take for granted like relaxing by the swimming pool

Walking along a sandy beach and watching the sun setting into the sea were all brand new experiences for him
