Together At Last (well, 6 days ago, sorry)!

K:  Yeah, so all those updates we were going to give you and all those photos and vlogs we were going to share?  Haven’t had any time, sorry! 😛 Too busy having fun!

J:  We have been taking a lot of photos and videos though for sharing later. Those who wait and all of that, right?

K:  No meeting video at the airport though *cry* The camera wasn’t recording.  We got our second hug filmed again.  It was really nice, that first hug again, tight, not wanting to let go.  We tripped over ourselves and into the barrier.  Probably my fault.

J:  Yes it was.

K:  We’ve done a lot since then…

J:  Yes! 😀 Let’s see how many I can remember… First major thing was the Shrek Adventure thing in London. It was really cool. I think I liked it better than the London Dungeon that we did afterwards. So thanks for the surprise honey! 😀 Then we went on the London Eye which was really cool. Lots of nice views over the city at night. Lots of photos from that. Buuuut not nearly as many as we got on the HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR!!!

K:  Give me the keyboard!  Not nearly as many as we got on the HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR!!!

J:  Yeah, I know you wanted to say that but I got there first 😛 anyway, the studio tour was amazing. Words can’t describe it which is the reason for like, almost 800 photos and hours of video to capture it!

K:  But that requires a whole post in itself, that not everyone will be interested in on this blog (shame!) Spent a fortune too, though gift shop was missing a lot of things we wanted 😦

Anyway after spending 9 hours there, we came home to under 2 hours sleep before needing to take taxi back to airport to get on plane back to Johan’s home country of Sweden!  Been racing around and haven’t stopped!

J:  Yeah we’ve been on walking tours and met my mum and my friend Emma and seen and done probably many more things, not necessarily in that order. Lots of walking. Bodies hurting and Kylie limping (poor thing<3) and we probably won’t get much rest until the holiday is over 😛

K: We did plan a very full itinerary.  Only rest we’re getting is on trains and buses where we start falling asleep (and at dinner too, sorry!) And now we must run off again to get off this train!  Hope to update you all again soon! 🙂 Until then!


I’m on the bus… (Aside 8)

So I’m finally on my way. The first part of the journey, the bus ride to Luleå Airport. After two years, I will finally get to see her again. I think it hasn’t sunk in properly yet. It probably won’t until she is in my arms again.

Oh, and I’m also going to London. But who cares about that. That’s not nearly as exciting 😀

Meeting the First Time

I’d show the video, but it’s embarrassing.  Once I got off the plane in Stockholm, I decided to be smart and get changed into my thermals/base layers in the bathroom, and freshen up a little, whilst everyone queued up through customs to have their passports checked.  I knew I wouldn’t want to leave Johan to visit the bathroom straight after I met him, so in that way, I’m glad I did it.  However, once I came out of the bathroom (after spending time struggling in and out of all my unfamiliar winter layers) I was at the very end of the queue, if not last, then second-last.  But I had the WiFi working and was telling Johan and his brother that I would be there soon.  They had the camera out, ready to film our first reactions as was planned.

Of course, in my absence, they had to keep themselves entertained, and filmed silly waiting games where they’d guess if I’d be the next person that came out the gates or not.  Being at the very end of the queue, naturally they had a long wait and wasted perhaps a bit more battery than they should’ve!  By the time I collected my suitcase, I was so excited and nervous I forgot to text them that I was coming out, by which point the phone (and camera they were filming on) was dying, and as such, despite all our careful efforts, we missed capturing those very first moments!  His brother soon got the phone working again though to film a brief, second hug (after a much longer first one, and first kiss) and one of the first things Johan says to me is: “You’re shorter than I expected.”  I laughed and retaliated, saying “I’m not short!” before we proceeded to walk aimlessly around the airport, getting lost trying to find our way back to the buses with a camera shoved in our faces (Thanks Pontus, I guess we asked for it 😛 )  I was so nervous and shy that day, I couldn’t do much but smile and grin widely, worrying slightly that I wouldn’t be able to open up to Johan in person as much as I did online for the next six weeks.  I need not have worried, because before long, we couldn’t stop talking.

Very soon, we’ll get our next airport meeting, and this time, we’ll make sure to capture it properly. 😀
