July 23, 2020

  Covid test required  
  Mandatory quarantine  

After not seeing my now fiancé for 154 days we decided to take measures in our own hand and meet in a 'third' country. I flew there the 24th of July from the Netherlands and had to stay for 16 days. He arrived the 30th of July. It was amazing to finally see him and it was like we were never apart. On the 5th of August he popped the question on the island of Love. After being in Aruba for 16 days, we traveled to New York City (JFK). As you have per-clearance in Aruba, you do not have to go through customs in the USA again. I stayed in USA, in our new apartment in CT, for 2,5 months. First I was supposed to stay for only three weeks, but we realized that was just too short. It was amazing and the best decision ever to extend the trip.

My advice to others; if you can, just do it!
