Banana Chat - meet Adonis Vamvoukakis

by Banana Crumble | Feb 14, 2018

My name is Adonis Vamvoukakis, I am 28 with Cystic Fibrosis, but this doesn’t stop me doing the things I enjoy. I have a positive outlook to life and try to help others see the positive side of things. I love my family, the outdoors, animals, trucks and training. I am a competitive Bodybuilder in the men’s physique catagory and want to prove to people that if you want it enough you can achieve anything.

What is your favourite joke?
I am not great at remembering jokes, but I have a few favourite comedians, like Bill Bailey, Lee Evans and Jeff Foxworthy.

What makes you smile?
My wife, my dog, family, horses and the gym.

What is your favourite good news story?
Anything where people save or rescue animals, they always make me happy, and it is amazing to see how complete strangers will band together to save a life no matter who they are.

What inspires you?
Positivity, seeing anybody pushing their limits and never giving up. I am a very positive person and I am driven by those who are the same.

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?
Health and safety and the suing culture, it has gone mad and stops so many people enjoying life. Not get rid of it, just tone it down a little.

If you could have one superpower what would you choose and why?
To fly, I have always been fascinated by flying and being able to do this without the confines of a vehicle would be so freeing and you could go anywhere.

Banana juice

If you are going on holiday what luxury item would you take from home?
Mobile Phone, now they are so versatile, they are the new Swiss army knife of technology. Camera, GPS, phone, Internet, games, etc and the list goes on.

If you could make one law, what would it be and why?
To ban complaining about trivial things. If people stopped complaining about all the little things that don’t matter, the world would be a more positive place to be and everyone would be more productive.

Give us a random piece of information about you that people wouldn’t know?
That is a hard one as I am quite an open book. I guess not everyone knows that I am completely T Total, I don’t drink any form of alcohol at all.
