This photo was taken at 12.24pm on the 8 December 2013, approximately an hour after we had just met at the airport for the very first time. We were travelling back to Stockholm Central on the subway with Johan’s brother, Pontus, and a massive suitcase filled with Australian Christmas presents and warm clothes to last the six weeks. If we look very happy, it’s because we were. It was such an exciting moment to finally be able to touch and kiss and hold. We were both still pretty nervous and shy at this point, but we were very quickly relaxing our nerves around each other and getting ready to enjoy six weeks of unforgettable fun and loving.
