In the meantime i would very much like some surf in Cornwall. please.

indefensible: It’s no longer unusual to see couples who met while they each lived in countries far apart from one another. International travel, the internet, combined with a growing wanderlust in culture have all made such romances all but inevitable. What’s often overlooked in these stories is the courage…
