How our engagement looked like

Our engagement took a special form, because it took place in a place close to my heart – Karol asked the magic question in Dubai. I associate Dubai very well – I like the United Arab Emirates, I like this particular emirate that is Dubai. I think that it is a very interesting cultural mix and probably the only place on earth where the splendour and wealth is not so obvious. 

I’ve also competed in Dubai and raced against the best, I’ve also had the opportunity to be there several times, and this trip of ours last year – because we got engaged on 5 June 2021 – was the first trip to Dubai for Charles. We planned our time from A to Z, practically every day was filled with different attractions. One of these attractions, which we basically decided together during dinner at the Burj Khalifa, was a balloon flight. And it was there that Karol decided to ask me THIS question!

It was really very surprising, especially since we were stressed because the day before the balloon flight…. we were watching movies, how those balloons land badly, how they crash, the baskets fall over… And we were stressed, but also curious about the fate of our balloon. Fortunately, during the landing, everything went safely and according to plan.? Karol had a very beautifully prepared balloon.

Karol had a beautiful speech prepared, which was incredibly heartwarming, but I didn’t hear this speech on the moment and day of the proposal, but only a day later – when the emotions had subsided. Because it is such a strong emotional charge, however, that all Karol was able to get out of his mouth was „I love you. Will you become my wife?”

This magical moment took place at 5:30am, at sunrise, over the desert in Dubai. It was truly something over-the-top, but I think nothing says it more beautifully than capturing that moment in itself. So please take a look at our engagement – the video is below:


Of course I cried and Charles cried too, it was really emotional. After the engagement, during our stay, we also did our engagement photo shoot. Using the Flytographer portal we found a very nice photographer and arranged a photo shoot in the old part of Dubai. The photos came out beautifully and we have a nice souvenir from that day, which will be able to be seen during the wedding in albums prepared by us.
