A plummer from New Zealand is honouring his dad in the best way – by achieving the dream he never got to complete.

Logan Dodds, 26, said he’d been left in a rut after losing his ‘best mate’ eight years ago.

He said his dad had always wanted to travel the world and had worked hard to provide for his family before he experienced a ‘freak brain aneurism’ and died.

4th of June. 4 Years later. Still Heartbroken 💔. Miss you old boy @adodds

He told UNILAD:

I don’t often talk about why I travel so much which is why I decided to do this tribute video for my dad.

People just see me travelling the world and trying to show off I suppose but really there’s totally deeper meaning.

My dad passed away out of the blue eight years ago due to a freak brain aneurysm and he never got to travel.

He selflessly worked his arse off, set his family up and had planned to travel the world with my beautiful Mum a year after the accident happened – and I found myself in a complete rut after he passed.

He said his dad’s death ‘completely flipped’ his life.

Telling UNILAD:

I thought, f**k it I’m going to go overseas and try make something of my life.

In those moments of complete happiness travelling, I felt free and alive. I felt my dad with me the whole way..

From those moments my life changed. I lived in the now, appreciated every f*****g moment I was breathing and eight years later continue to do so.. My dad never got to explore the world.

Now, I do it for the both of us.

In a heartfelt tribute, Logan wrote on his Facebook page:

The universe is a crazy place, things happen for a reason. Though it was the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, I am now super f*****g proud of the man I am today.

Live in the moment, be good to the universe, never take anything for granted.

This is for you old boy.
