Captain Tom Moore, a century-old British veteran who was knighted by Elizabeth II for raising more than 39 million pounds sterling for doctors, has fulfilled another life dream. He went to the island of Barbados.
“I never thought I would be able to travel again at the age of 100. I am so grateful to everyone who made it possible. The support I received in 2020 gave me new energy, and today I can tick something off my dream list,” Captain Moore wrote in a tweet in which he posted a photo from the plane cabin to Barbados.

The airline and enthusiastic users expressed their gratitude and support for the veteran, wishing him a wonderful trip and vacation.
“Enjoy a well-deserved rest, Captain Tom, you earned it, you kept our spirits and our hope alive during a very difficult time. Thank you, sir. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas,” one user wrote.
In September, Captain Tom revealed how he would like to visit an island paradise and return to India and travel the world-famous route. Captain Tom Moore showed his delight by crossing another destination off his dream list.
His vacation came days after he took the stage at the Royal National Theatre with singer and actor Michael Ball to perform You’ll Never Walk Alone on Wednesday night. Т
It seems the centennial traveler has no intention of stopping there, as it was previously reported that a movie will be made about his life, in which he would like David Beckham to take the lead role.
