I met my boyfriend on holiday in fuerteventura. He is from Germany and I am from the UK and we met in august 2017. We discovered a year later that my sixth form college in the UK and his high school in Germany had a partnership and he was invited to go and study and work in my hometown (Preston) in England for a month.
