I spent four months convincing my girlfriend that we were going to vacation in Vancouver for Thanksgiving week. I suggested that it would be funny if I didn't tell my family, friends, or coworkers that we were going out of the country until we got back. I started wearing a shirt with the Canadian flag on it and we read an entire guidebook for Vancouver together. Canada was going to be our secret getaway. We discovered that her passport was expired 4 weeks before our trip. She decided to expedite her new passport to be safe, which requires an itinerary. I produced proof of her flight to Vancouver that night, no questions asked.
I met her at the airport the afternoon of our departure, with my Canada shirt on and we took a picture with our Vancouver book. When she got to the counter she was speechless when she was handed a ticket to London Heathrow. On our way to security I took off my Canada shirt to reveal the England shirt I had on underneath it. I told her on the plane that I had a friend in London I wanted to visit. The next morning we went to the Tower of London and then met up with my friend, who then had lunch with us and kindly offered to walk us around Parliament. We crossed the river and kept pausing for pictures, looking for the perfect photo with Big Ben. At 2pm on Sunday, November 20th, as the bells chimed, the crowd vanished, and time stood still, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. I had spent four months coordinating with my friend in London to pick this exact spot and time, and to capture it in photographs for us. Everything worked out perfectly and she said yes. Word of our engagement spread fast, but it wasn't until the photo surfaced that people found out we were even out of the country.
It did cost me a non-refundable plane ticket to Vancouver, but our unforgettable story was totally worth it.
