Engagement story: "In 2015 I proposed to Veronica during a trip to Crete. I had planned it on a day where we visited the famed Balos beach (Google it — it's amazing), but after the long day of traversing over the most treacherous path to get there and enduring a blistering sun, Veronica was so burnt and tired that I improvised the next day after walking her to the end of the pier in the town we were staying."
