good morning with big smile
yesterday i had mention that i have to explain the storey about this girls who is my dream team
here before we start with them i would like to start with me .
12 years ago somethings happened like this , 4 year working with EUSTACE FERNANDES
one christmas 2002 Eustace asked me amin what do you want for christmas ?
|AMIN and EUSTACE|
some friend from Barcelona knew that i wanted to come but it was not easy for me
well Christmas night Eustace asked me what i wanted for christmas as i told you all i said nothings
then he told me think what you want
after he is came back from church to home in the car he ask me again what do you want this Christmas??? while he was in the church ,i was thinking i must tell him that i want to go to Barcelona so now i knew what i wanted and i told him sir take me to Barcelona [Spain] he told me the first words are you mad??? and have you lost your mind ???
he told something like this '' haaaa take you to Barcelona'' and i reply yes sir please i know you are the one who can open the door for me to the world , but he kept on repeating again and again '' haaaa take you to Barcelona [ SPAIN].
he told me have you lost your mind??? ask me anythings you want but i can't take you to Barcelona.
I knew it was not easy for him as well as for me , we had arguments that night i knew it was not easy for him to take a driver to Spain but well after few hours later he made for me a Christmas card as always he use to make me christmas card and wish me merry christmas and happy new year or on my birthday this was his speciality he always made the card for everyone, i use to admire him a lot for this , he was a great artist and had good mind to play with words in the card , poster or to make logos
so that night i don't wanted the card but when i open the card all i saw was amin merry christmas and
happy new year 2003 27 April we go to BARCELONA
all of you have no idea as me that moment what i felt
no words to express all i was doing is crying with broken smile and hugging EUSTACE so tight , then on 27 April 2003 it was my 1st time i entered the airport .
15 years ago i use to go to airport to watch planes flying over my head , i use to climb the walls sit there and watch the planes flying then when i grew up i became a driver and i use to go to airport to pick up Eustace friends , family and my clients but there was always one question in my head thinking what was behind that door???.
That 1 flight ticket changed my life and i promised Eustace , i want to bring this change to many Amin like me one day , till now i have made 12 travels in 12 years , every travel made me grow wider mind , stronger and give me the strength to make my dream in real
If Eustace had not opened that door for me maybe today i was still a driver maybe i was a different person with narrow mind , leave selfish life and have no passion or vision for my dream
This is the main reason i call travel is the best book in life
I have met many people before my 1st travel and they promised me various things '' ohhhh i will bring you to Europe but the some of them did not even contact me once their work was done ''.
Still i never gave up , hope and dream was my only strength at that moment i knew it was not easy to travel but also i knew the people who have money and power at least they can do something
As this 3 girls when they asked me for travelling , i know it not easy all i did is find the way to bring their dream of travel in real there is no magic until to work for it because i know what it means to travel ..
Some of my friends are little upset on my decision of taking this 3 girls to Spain but i am not going to ask them nor i want to discuss about it ...
all i want to see is this 3 girls super smile and going to change their life for better even if they don't i have nothing to lose or worry about because i did my best .
I say all they have is an opportunity to either go up in life or go down , we are always the key for our own selves but every hand makes the difference to others life , this is my travel storey as all i want to say 13 years working for Eustace Fernandes this is all i have learn give back what you get in life
Eustace have been in my life the best boss ever , best father ever and the best friend ever i could find in my life .
I AM BECAUSE OF YOU!!!!!!
3 STORIES ON THE WAY .......
