How We Met

In September 2009 at Cardiff university. He saw me on the landing of the student union working as a new student rep giving directions. He caught my eye despite the millions of other students walking past that day. He was living with one of my friends so I managed to get some info on him and found out he came from the same place as me. Coincedence! We¬†got chatting on a night out with mutual friends and we laughed all evening. We exchanged numbers, had a few too many drinks, and the rest is history. On our first official date he tried to impress me by doing different accents and impressions and I felt so at ease with him. We didn’t want the night to end.

How He Asked

We had been staying with friends for a few days and had begun our solo road trip. we spent the day exploring the gorgeous beaches of the tutukaka coast and realised we had nowhere to stay. We picked a freedom camping spot outside waipu caves. The caves were free to explore and had a mass of romantic glow worms inside. I am very scared of the dark so our first visit into the caves was not so successful. We had dinner in our motor home and I suggested we tried again… The second time we went in. We got to the breathtaking glow worms and were admiring them in the pitch dark. Then he shined a torch on the beautiful ring and asked the question! We spent the evening with no mobile signal, in a field, with wine and board games. So cute!
