Amar Latif, no limits, even if you can't see.

Hello. I follow Amar Latif on Twitter because I met him a couple of times when I went on two of his Traveleyes holidays. He never ceases to amaze me. Recently he was presenting a TV programme about Yorkshire. For someone who lost his sight at 18, it has never held him back.

Amar has just done a Ted Talk, filmed at Glasgow. He is such an inspiration, nothing fazes him, he lives life to the full. Have a watch of this.

I've found this short video which shows how daring he is. It's an amazing story of  determination and passion.

Here he is walking along the canal towpath at Skipton. This was the first UK holiday that Traveleyes organised. The first one I went on was to Sorrento, sadly I don't have any pictures of that.

Checkout the Traveleyes site here. If anyone is at a loose end for their holiday, maybe there is something there that might tempt you. Single travellers welcome, sighted or blind. This is not a sponsored post, I happen to think that Amar is a lovely guy, and the holidays are great fun.

  4. Thank you so much for you kind words Ilona! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the talk. It was very nerve wracking but worth it for the experience. We hope you join us again on one of our holidays! Love Amar and the team X

    1. Wow, how nice of you to reply, I didn't expect that. I'll let you into a secret, I have been looking at your holidays. I'm thinking about it, but I can only do UK, I don't have a passport.
