How we met...
Where it all began...
It all began on August 28th, 2012. On a journey through China, eating in one of the Canteens of Pingyao, or "Hole in the wall" as they call it. Destiny has put our table next to each other, trying to find nice and not extremely spicy meals, gave a start to an interesting conversation. Later on, we have spent great time exploring what this ancient town has to offer. Exploration of Xi'an followed. Wonderful moments spent together made us realize that something very special was going on between us.
Since then, we felt so good about each other, crossing countries and experiencing unique moments.
Monastery of Alcobaça, Portugal
We didn't follow the same route always, It happen that one of us had to "turn right" the other had to "turn left" on our journeys. Although we kept thinking about each other and sometimes meeting in different places of the world, having wonderful times. Finally we reunited, in the second coldest capital of the world - Astana. Being in Kazakhstan together has left us with no doubts of what would be our next step, and on the last visit to Joana's homeland, Vladimir proposed her on a beautiful day of 15th of July on the stairs of Alcobaça Monastery. So here we are, ready for our next big step together.
