The things that make Ian & Adele, well, Ian & Adele: Episode #3

The things that make Ian & Adele, well, Ian & Adele: Episode #3

3. Our romance across 3 continents.

Singapore


This is the first photo we ever took together, with a lousy camera phone. We were in the car waiting for salsa class to start, that, in hindsight was just an excuse to spend an hour a week together in a fun, purposeful manner. I guess the rest, they say, was history.

Australia


Brisbane still holds my heart. It was here that I celebrated my 21st birthday, with Ian as the biggest surprise birthday present ever! I have to give credit to my friends who helped this play out (: Australia was probably when our relationship became more cemented, as we dealt with sustaining it via phonecalls and video skyping sessions. I have sooo many screenshots of both of us on skype! Those were the only pictures of both of us for a really long time.

England


And now we're finally together in England! Trust me, it was no easy feat getting used to seeing one another around ALL the time! But I think we've now figured how to live under the same roof but still be able to find space for me-time (:

For all of you out there who are in long-distance relationships! Hang in there (: It'll be all worth it in the end!
We are living proof that it does in fact work (not without tonnes of hard work of course), it might just take awhile to finally find a place where you both can be together (:

Thank you for making us work, Ian!
Me love you long time (:

awww what an adorable post. i totally know what you mean about seeing each other all the time but still having "me" time. once you get it all ironed out, it seems impossible that you ever lived any other way!

I think that is absolutely amazing. It's so hard to work the long-distance thing, and I thank the Lord for Skype, because it helps me stay in touch with family in Poland and it clearly helped you two as well!

That's such an adorable first photo, by the way :)

I had to deal with my boyfriend being gone for a month in Hungary and though that doesn't really compare to your story, it definitely teaches you about loving from far away!
