Looking back, I still find it one of the most magical things that ever occurred to me.
Last year, I spent the Fourth Of July break in Niagara Falls. I travelled on my own -like I usually do. What I couldn't imagine at that time, was how much my life was going to change after that trip.
It was a Sunday, July 3, 2011, around 10.30 pm. I had spent that day in Toronto. On my way back to Niagara Falls, I decided to stop by the Skylon Tower, on the Canadian side. I started shooting the Falls with my new camera, and this guy was just next to me doing the same thing, with the same Canon Rebel. I certainly asked him for some advice to use the camera for better results -I actually had bought the camera the day before I embarked on that trip.

We talked for maybe ninety minutes, exchanged emails and said good bye. I really liked him, but I was returning to Miami the next day and he was returning to...GERMANY the following week. What were the chances for me to see him again?
The moment I arrived at Miami, I shot him an email to make sure we stayed in touch. And SO we did. From that moment, we talked everyday. We soon realized that our random encounter in Niagara Falls was the beginning of a relationship.
This last year was a roller coaster of emotions and beautiful moments. I guess that you don't choose to have your boyfriend at the other side of the pond. It just happens. The moment you fully embrace the LDR, you realize that it will all make sense and fall into place when the time is right.
