Okay, so we have a long distance blog & vlog about our long distance relationship, and we just had a 4 week holiday together and we made 1 post during that time… I’m pretty sure that’s not how a blog about our long distance relationship is supposed to work! “The planning is all over!” we said. “We’ll keep you updated!” we said. “Lots of photos and vlogs and stories to come!” we said. Well, they’ll come now. Sorry about the delay. But, we don’t care. We were able to treasure those moments we had together without stressing over the blog because, well, it was one of the last things on our mind! We were much too busy focusing on being together and having fun while it lasted. Now we’re apart again, and we both feel so lost & empty. Hopefully the blog will help to contradict that.
We also told another lie:
Very soon, we’ll get our next airport meeting, and this time, we’ll make sure to capture it properly. 😀
We hadn’t intended it to be a lie, but let’s just say, for the second time, and our second airport meeting, we had video malfunctions and managed to miss recording those first few minutes, AGAIN. We only got the aftermath, the second hug, not nearly the same as the first bone-crushing one. Kylie was not impressed. It had been a good first hug. Johan casually strolling up with his suitcase at London Heathrow airport, looking a little lost. Kylie half-running, half-limping over to him, throwing her arms around him so tight that they stumble half-falling-over into the railing. We hugged tight for like, five minutes, and did we get any of it on film as intended? No! I guess it’ll have to be third try lucky.
There is so much to tell and so much to share, all in good time.
And did Johan surprise Kylie and propose under the Northern Lights? No! We didn’t SEE the northern lights in three weeks in Lapland! But we won’t go there…
White Christmas? Nope.
Fall over, break a leg, and have to extend our holiday? Nope.
Probably just as well… with 7,218 photos & videos and 215GB worth, I’m not sure how much more our harddrives could handle! Now it’s just the nightmare of editing them all together to make photobooks and videos which will occupy us both for the next several months inbetween work and study and planning our next adventure – in Australia, and hopefully, a permanent move to Sweden after that. That’s right. Our hopes and dreams haven’t changed, and our love has only strengthened over the last couple of weeks.
(As has Kylie’s hate of a Queensland summer after a 54° + temperature change. Goodbye winter.)
