United Kingdom - Amsterdam - Paris
November 4, 2020
After several attempts to meet with my now fiancé, I was finally in his arms again on November 7th, when he flew from US to Mexico to meet me. My journey started on November 4th. My original flight was for the 6th, but with UK going on lockdow again on the 5th I couldn't risk it not going. So I booked a flight with a 14hr layover in Amsterdam and spent 2 days in Mexico by myself until his arrival. We spent 3 weeks together and now we are planning a wedding.
I had no issues getting into Mexico or US, we went through passport control together, agent asked the nature of our relationship, we stated that we were engaged, he asked me how long I was staying I said 1 week and where did we come from, Mexico. That was it, didn't ask for proof of nothing or any extra information. One of the easiest immigration I had.
