Jessie: “Josh and I met on the walking night tour in London the day before our Great Britain and Ireland trip in January 2019. To me, he was the typical Aussie lad, complaining about the cold and cracking all the jokes. To him, it was love at first sight over beer in a pub!
The day our trip started, there was a spare seat on the bus in front of me. He hopped on to sit in front of me, and we chatted, joked and laughed – and very much annoyed our future best friend Amy, also my Perth Contiki Soul Sister (That’s another love story for you all!). Our trip was magical, getting to see the beautiful sites of the UK and make memories with our new pals Amy, Luke and Bec.
From the get go, Josh and I were inseparable. There was the distance – me from Perth, and Josh from Queensland – but we knew that wouldn’t stop us! We did long distance for the year of 2019. Every four weeks one of us would find the time to fly back and forth – we made it work, and it was the greatest of adventures! At the start of 2020, Josh made the big move to Perth, right before the pandemic hit. Now, in 2021, we have just bought and moved into our new house and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Contiki opened my eyes to the world and blessed me with the greatest of people. A big shoutout to Amy who will be our MC at our wedding and Bec to being Josh’s grooms-woman ❤️”
