We first met online way back when I was at uni (Nat) and she was still living at home in country Victoria (Tara) and we were both looking for friends to talk to. Just a few weeks after we started chatting, I decided to jump on a plane to Melbourne to meet her properly and go and stay with her family for a few days. We met at Spencer Street Station and then had to catch a 5 hour train to Warnambool then a bus to Heywood. Tara was EXTREMELY shy and barely spoke a word the entire train trip! It was a memorable trip for sure! We kept in touch as friends for a couple of years, but it wasn’t until she joined the Navy and was deployed to Sydney before we properly reconnected and sparks appeared.
