An Indian photographer Faizan Patel is currently enjoying an Italian honeymoon without his honey because just two days before he and wife Sana were supposed to leave for their two-week trip, she realized she had lost her passport.
Patel went on the trip anyway, and kept his wife with him, kind of. On Monday Patel tweeted out a photo of himself, traveling with Sana’s picture placed over an empty seat.
“This is how I am travelling with my wife as of now”
The tweet was seen by Sushma Swaraj, India’s minister of external affairs.
Swaraj tweeted back to Patel to have his wife contact her; a little later Swaraj said a duplicate passport would be issued. Patel’s wife just might make it to Italy after all.
Even though she’ll have her hands on a passport soon, he said she won’t be able get a visa until after the honeymoon is over.
The two got married back in December and took a “mini-honeymoon” to an Indian national park, but Italy was supposed to be the real honeymoon.
“This trip was entirely planned by her,” Patel told CNN, adding that he really missed her. “I wish to see her next to me soon.”
