Love is not constrained by distance. In this digital age, a long distance relationship is not a big deal. But this Italian illustrator, Simone Ferriero fell in love online with a Canadian girl, Krisi without even ever seeing her in person. So, last December when they couldn’t deal with the distance anymore, he took a flight to Toronto to finally meet the love of his life and he decided to illustrate every moment of it.
As he was so excited about meeting his long distance girlfriend for the first time, he made sure to document every event, starting from waiting in the airport to the best Canadian food he had. But his way of documentation was different. He did not take photos or write down in his journal. Instead, he took help of his art to express true feelings, as any artist would do.
So here is a cute love story which went viral very soon.
The idea occurred to him while he was waiting for his flight in Naples, Italy. The anxiety and happiness of meeting his girl for the first time have already kicked in his nerves.
This was the moment they waited for so long and the wait was worth it. You can feel how happy he was from the way he illustrated only her in colour as if she was the only one he could focus on.
As they hugged for the first time Simone realised that Krisi was taller than him.
The first nights are always special. They talked and snuggled all night. You also have the fear of doing something stupid in sleep like snoring and embarrassing yourself. They woke up the next morning and told each other “This was the best night ever.”
The next day Simone and his long-distance girlfriend went for a little tour of the city. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is a major tourist attraction and has it all, octopuses, stingrays, sharks. You will feel you are literally underwater. Imagine how romantic would it be to share the first kiss amidst all of those.
One cannot visit Canada without complaining about the chilly weather.
Then they went to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto and guess what shocked Ferriero so much.
What could have been better than just comfortably spending the evening watching Netflix weather love of your life?
Don’t worry guys although this seems to be a horrifying illustration, Simone explained it as the next night when his long distance girlfriend started sleep-talking. Seems like someone got out of the snuggling phase and managed to sleep peacefully with each other.
Simone fell in love with Canadian food.
But they surely did not see this coming.
They hit it off so well that while parting Ferriero gave his long distance love a ring as a symbol of the great time they had and a promise to stay together forever even if the distance tests their patience.
It is very exciting to see what’s next. Fans are guessing it could be engagement comic and then a wedding, maybe?
