I went to Bhutan on a holiday and ended up marrying my guide
While it may sound sensational and out of the world, every word of it is true: I did go to Bhutan for a one-week solo trip and I did end up marrying my Bhutanese tour guide. Ever since word got out about our romance, we've had many people commenting that our story was a "fairy tale", a "K-drama", "almost like a movie", and that we are both very lucky and are made for each other. While I do agree that we are indeed lucky (as I will highlight reasons why) and yes, possibly made for each other because of how our attitudes, personalities and outlook on life are so similar, somehow I just don't know where the fascination with our love story begins: Is it because it's part of the whole narrative of how Bhutan is "mysterious" and "out of this world", and hence marrying a Bhutanese equates to marrying into an exotic Himalayan country that's almost unheard of and rarely travelled to?
