Meeting in Distant Parts

In Jan 2009 myself and partner booked into a motel on the Coromandel peninsular in New Zealand. The following morning my partner was wandering in the garden when a man sat outside one of the lodges said good morning, and recognising her accent asked where we were from. She replied Cornwall- and as we were used to Australians and Americans asking if we knew specific people when they realised where we came from, my partner was prepared for the next question- 'oh do you know John and Sue in Hayle' he asked - slightly taken aback my partner recognised the names and replied "do you mean John and Sue XXXX"- "yes" he replied, "I used to be married to Sue!"
