#Bondstories: I love you from Australia to the US, and back

As Bond Touch completes the pre-sale and moves into normal sales we want to thank you all and celebrate by sharing inspiring stories from our community! We are launching the series of stories from #bondcommunity with an incredible love story that lives on 2 continents - North America and Australia.

‘Three years ago I went to Sri Lanka to visit some friends, and that is where I met him, a few years older than myself, a refugee from Iran. From our first conversation we just clicked, and spent the whole week together talking, laughing and flirting. For me it was love at first sight. When I returned to Australia I couldn't get him out of my head, so when I had an opportunity to go back after six months I took it.

It was later that year, when he had the all clear to move to America, that we became official. I visited him in Chicago last year and I felt so lucky to be able to have him by my side, even though it was only for two weeks. Even when I got used to the distance I still missed the physical touch of someone I love so much. I could hear him and see him but touch is what really connects two people.

Because he's a refugee from Iran, it will be another two or three years before his visa can be processed. Even the opportunity for him to travel and see me is hanging by a thread. The distance and uncertainty of it - all can be difficult to handle when we're apart, and feeling his touch can make such a big difference. Technologies like this make it so much easier to still feel connected’ - Laura, Bond Touch Community.
