"After I graduated college, I backpacked through Europe with a friend for six weeks. While we were standing in line at the Galleria dell'Accademia museum in Florence, Italy, we started talking to four boys our age who were also American. One of the boys, Patrick, caught my attention. He was charming and had the biggest blue eyes. We met up with the boys again a couple days later in Cinque Terre to go hiking, during which Patrick and I talked and sang Disney songs. That night, we sipped Chianti while watching the sun set over the Bay of Riomaggiore. I was bummed when we said goodbye, because I was certain it wouldn't work past that point.
“我大学毕业后,和朋友背上背包去欧洲旅行了6周。在意大利佛罗伦萨学院美术馆排队时,我们开始跟四个与我们年龄相仿的男孩聊天,他们也是美国人,其中一个叫帕特里克的男孩引起了我的注意,他很迷人,蓝色的眼睛大大的。过了几天去五渔村徒步时又遇到了这几个男孩,其间帕特里克和我聊天、唱迪士尼的歌。那天晚上我们喝着基安蒂红葡萄酒,在Riomaggiore海湾看日落。分开时我很郁闷,因为我确定过了那一刻就没那种感觉了。
I was wrong. We kept in touch through Facebook, and eventually started texting and calling each other. We lived ten hours apart, but we decided to try dating long distance. After a couple months, a career opportunity made it possible for me to move to his city. Getting to date in person was a blast, and after 14 months, we got engaged — and now we're married. It's crazy to remember how this all started. And now I have a travel buddy for life!"
我想错了,我们一直在脸书上保持联系,后来开始发短信打电话。我们相隔10个小时路程,但我们决定先试试异地恋。几个月后一次工作上的机会让我搬到了他的城市,真正面对面的约会真棒。14个月后,我们订婚了——现在我们结婚了。回想这一切真的感觉很疯狂,现在一辈子都有人陪我旅行了!”
