It was Paris and Robert’s passion for travel that brought them together. Originally from Australia, Paris had packed her bags for a new adventure in South Africa. However she fell in love with Cape Town and it was there that she met Robert on a chance encounter!
Paris overheard him speaking in French to some tourists which prompted her to go over and ask where he was from! After discovering that he was actually from South Africa, Paris sensed a spark of chemistry after this initial meeting.
After six months of dating an unmistakable love blossomed, but Paris still had places to see on her travels so the couple temporarily parted ways. However, they couldn’t bear to be apart and ended up reuniting for a holiday to Argentina one Christmas!
Their amazing backpacking trip through South America included a five day horseback trek in the Andes! Robert knew that Paris loved horse riding so he wouldn’t rest until he had booked her the trek!
Robert proposed to Paris during the trip and even managed to get her mother on board! Although Paris was stubborn, Robert persevered. At the airport after the holiday, the couple had an emotional goodbye before Robert gave one last plea to Paris to marry him. The trip made Paris realise they were meant to be and she followed Robert back to Cape Town!
