How two lovers crossed many boundaries to become one. By Matilda Simmons.
If theres one aspect that stands out about Niumaia and Janine Karavakis marriage, its their long journey.
Their long journey of crossing many boundaries so they could keep their love alive, of overcoming cultural barriers and the distance between their countries.
