I left Norway when Covid-19 was growing exponentially in Europe. When we said goodbye, we did not know how long it was going to be until we saw each other again... we predicted perhaps 3 months but it turned out to be 7 months. I began working in Thailand and my husband was working in Norway. We tried to be patient but our clashing work schedules coupled with the time difference made it difficult to stay positive sometimes. That on top of the restrictions not easing made it harder. Once Norway allowed couples to be reunited, I did what I had to do on my side of the world to leave my job and apartment to move over and be with him in Norway. I made it with no issues and we got married in December just before Christmas. We are so happy to start 2021 as husband and wife!
