I spent Christmas and New Years in America with him (where he proposed again…to be funny…on the big screen at Madison Square Gardens during a New York Rangers Game), and he moved to Australia on a 12 month work/travel visa in May of 2012.
According to my friends Mike was creepy because of the roses and pizza and mixed CD’s he would send.After flying home from Africa and fitting back into “reality”, roses arrived for me on my first day back at work!Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America!(Immigration is a whole other blog which I will rant about at some other time).We both worked 2 jobs to pay for all of our travel; 16 hour days, in my case while at the same time studying Journalism and Law full time at university and still maintaining a pretty impressive social life.Being forced to talk on the phone meant that we got to know each other a lot more intimately, and a lot more quickly than we otherwise would have.

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.
We have had a pretty crazy, whirlwind relationship – but it’s worked for us, and it had to be whirlwind because of our situation. To search hotels at the lowest prices, enter your dates below and click search.
