1. Meeting someone is completely unexpected.
Unless you’re really good at looking people up in other countries, or you pay to use Tinder Plus, meeting someone while traveling is pretty unexpected. Kind of like how you secretly hope to get seated next to someone cute on the plane then end up next to someone with bronchitis and a baby…except the exact opposite.
I believe the word “unexpected” is synonymous with “surprised”, and well, who doesn’t love an awesome surprise? Especially if that surprise comes in the form of a foreign fling. In fact, unexpectedly meeting someone while traveling is even more awesome, since you’ll probably convince yourself that it was a stroke of fate and those butterflies will just keep fluttering every time you see them!
