Hi everyone, I’m Thomas Kulesza. My parents are immigrated from Poland about 25 years ago, I have brother and a sister, both older. My parents have a love for travel and so as a child I visited many places. I’ve been to Greece, Poland, England, France, Spain and many other countries, although I must say the trips I mentioned were probably some of the most fun I’ve had.
I think that all that traveling as a child, really help my learn the passion I have for travel and flying. I think sometimes I like the flight there and back as much as I like trip itself. If my parents didn’t take me on these trips and vacations I don’t think I would have ever found half the passions and hobbies that I have now if it wasn’t for my parent’s taking me to all the, at least at the time, exotic places.
I love to flying, in fact I’m going to try to go for my pilot’s license over the summer. I love art, from all the museums I’ve been to as a child, like the Louvre, the Prado, the other large museums, but my favorite are the smaller museums/galleries of art. I remember in my last trip to Spain we went to this small church where I saw “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz” by El Greco. I also have a love of being on the water and water sports. In Poland, their hometown is in an area that is surrounded by lakes and river, and all the bodies of water are connected by canals if they aren’t naturally connected. So, in every trip to Poland that I can remember my parents would rent kayaks and we would travel all around these bodies of water, in fact last time I went to Poland I signed up and took a 3 day trip where we started about 20 miles above their hometown, Augustow, and kayaked down a winding river in the day and at night we would set up camp in a forest. It was a very fun trip, although at times the kayaking felt like it would never end. I believe that we traveled about 40 miles in those three days.
