This was the first picture me and Freya (Mrs-Storm) took together in person. It was on the 16th of June, 2012. I spent the full month with her, and it was perfect. We were already dating for around 7 months, and knew each other almost 2 years before meeting. There were no awkward moments, we didn’t have to adjust to being together in person. It just felt right from the very first hug. Whether it was being in bed all day watching movies and eating junk food, or traveling to the city to walk around for the day it was the best experience ever. We had originally planned after my visit, Freya would visit me June 2013 for a month. But after saying our goodbyes I just knew I didn’t want to wait that long. So we’ve talked things over, and I’ve spoke to my parents and now I’m working towards getting a “One Year Working-Holiday Visa” which should take 5-6 months hopefully to gain the funds to acquire. I will be living with her and her mother for that year, and will have a job to keep earning money. After the year is up, me and Freya will return to Scotland where I’ll apply for a Defacto-Visa which will permit me to go back to Australia with Freya and if we continue as a couple, it’ll eventually be permanent. Miles no longer mean anything to me. And yeah, long distance isn’t for everyone. And for those who think we have a perfect relationship, we both have our flaws. We both work hard at keeping it strong though, and with all the distance between us, it just makes us stronger.
That was the last picture we took together in person. Many more will come. I love you, Freya.
This picture was taken on the 1st of Feb, 2013:
I’m now living with Freya in Brisbane, Australia. I’m here on a 1 year working holiday visa. In July of this year (2013) I will be moving to NSW with Freya for 3 months to live with her father and do my 3 months rural work there so I can apply for a 2nd Working Holiday Visa to permit me to stay in the country for another year. Then I will be getting a Defacto Visa, then a Partner Visa to live here permanently. We’ve officially beat distance.
No more goodbyes, only goodnights.
