Singapore to Germany
Third Country ?
August 13, 2020
15 Mar 2020 - We arrived in Bangkok for our solemnisation (16 Mar 2020). On that day we received news that Singapore will close its borders on 17 Mar 2020. We had to rearrange all the flight back to Singapore for our guest and brought forward our event from evening to morning of 16 Mar. 3 days later we had to part ways. Me to SG and him to Germany.
5 months of not seeing each other. And on my birthday, 10 Aug 2020 Germany announced the travel exception for couples! THANKS to #loveisnottourism & #loveisnottourismsingapore FB page, we were able to prepare the necessary documents and 14 Aug 2020 I flew to Germany.
Fast forward, flew back to SG in October and have to serve Stay Home Notice (SHN) at dedicated hotel (you can’t choose which hotel to quarantine in). 14 days of “me time”, went by very fast.
And I would do this ALL OVER AGAIN to meet my partner. Love has no boundaries.
