So it’s not surprising that I met the love of my life while traveling. I still love the reactions we get when people ask “so you’re from Australia, he’s from America – where did you both meet? After having both finished the Mt Kilimanjaro climb, we met through mutual travelers at the hotel at the bottom of the mountain.
We have a pretty incredible story – so I’m told – which included pulling off one of the greatest long distance relationships ever, being almost 15,000 kilometers apart. Before we knew it we had spent hours talking to each other and laughing together, and found ourselves sitting beneath a starry African sky in the early AM hours.
Surprisingly, it does actually help when you consistently catch up with the person.
Mike and I took our circumstances as a great opportunity to travel and met up with each other around the world.
Dinner had turned into breakfast and we forced ourselves to say goodbye before heading towards separate flights. If you truly want something to work, and you put everything you have into it, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish.
We swapped emails and phone numbers, not having any clue that our wedding in Hawaii would be less than three years later. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to. I wont lie – long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining the following. I got an amazing phone plan where I had unlimited calls to international mobiles, and we would talk for hours.
Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America!
Which is a pity, because long distance relationships don’t work, right? I swear I will hit the next person who tells me that long distance relationships NEVER work out…and there have been many.
I’m Megan from Australia, and over the last 5 years I’ve spent an accumulation of 6 months out of every year abroad.
60 days out from us meeting in Scotland for New Years 2011 I received a box which had 60 letters; one each day until we met up!
It might sound horribly corny, and you may now wish to throw up, but seriously – don’t underestimate the power of being sickly sweet!!
