It just might be true what an old popular song once said that love, in all its flaws and glory, moves in mysterious ways. This was shown to be accurate for the couple Verona Koliqi and Mirand Buzaku who found out about one peculiar coincidence shortly after they got engaged.
As it turned out, both of them set foot in the same beach 10 years ago and were literally just a handful of feet away from each other. You may call it destiny or simply coincidence, but the lovers were very pleased with the extraordinary discovery.
Verona shared in an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle:
“My cousin found this photo on her computer, and she sent it over to me on my phone to laugh about how we looked when we were younger.” She continued, “He said, ‘Hold up, I think that’s me!’ “We both looked at each other and said, ‘No way, that can’t be true.'”
The said photo shows a group of kids happily posing at a Montenegro beach. Verona thought of showing it to her fiancé but much to their surprise, Mirand found himself in the same photo upon closer inspection.
Apparently, he recognized the familiar float and shirt he also once had back when he was a youngster.
After some time, Mirand’s family confirmed that they actually had gone to the same beach at the time. What makes the event all the more exceptional was the fact that he was visiting from Kosovo while Verona was visiting from London.
Verona added: “I never knew something like this could happen, even though I’ve heard a saying: ‘You will have passed your soul mate at least once way before you actually meet up.'”
In 2016, the couple came face to face formally in Kosovo and ultimately fell in love with each other. Verona reflected:
“We exchanged looks every day we saw each other but did nothing.” A year later, Mirand proposed to her during their time in Turkey. “I had no clue he was going to propose to me, because in our country’s tradition, engagements are planned and have to be agreed by both beforehand,” she said.
Verona shared their throwback photos on her Instagram account which soon went viral. Plenty of netizens expressed their congratulatory messages and warm wishes for the couple.
