Honeymoon Nightmare May Turn Out Splendidly

As we have discovered recently, it’s completely optional to actually bring your spouse along with you on your honeymoon.
Couples, it would seem, do just fine when they start out life on completely different versions of a romantic vacation. Such was the case for Faizan Patel who jetted off from India to enjoy the splendor of Italy sans his lovely wife.
As CNN reports, wife Sana misplaced her passport, which meant that the most romantic of holidays was a party of one.
Patel breaks down the entire ordeal below via Twitter, which starts with a lost passport, the hope that it’s all a joke and optimism that Sana might make the holiday after all.
Just two days before our trip, my wife's passport goes missing!!!— Faizan Patel (@faizanpatel) August 4, 2016
Please let it be a good prank.— Faizan Patel (@faizanpatel) August 5, 2016
Seems like I am travelling alone tonight via @TurkishAirlines. My wife has her passport misplaced. Fingers crossed that we find it soon.— Faizan Patel (@faizanpatel) August 6, 2016
The minister of external afairs eventually got in touch with Patel:
So my wife got a fresh passport issued today, that too within 2 hours. Also scheduled an appointment with VFS Delhi. 1/2— Faizan Patel (@faizanpatel) August 9, 2016
Off to Florence. Sana applied for her visa application today at the VFS. Hoping she gets her visa from the embassy. pic.twitter.com/f1SmtoLPjW— Faizan Patel (@faizanpatel) August 10, 2016
As noted, the couple were married in December and enjoyed a short trip within India. However, this was to be the grand holiday together as a single unit. Instead, Patel was forced to make lemonade and create a hashtag, #honeymoonwithouthoney. Sadly, he’s not alone.
As CNN reminds and we reported back in July, a couple from Pakistan were able to take similar honeymoon-without-honey photos. Wife Huma Mobin flew off to Greece without hubby Arsalaan Sever when the country denied him a visa.
And the problem wasn’t relegated to the non-celebrity folk in the audience. Comedians and recently married couple Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti nearly had their honeymoon derailed thanks to a passport fiasco.
As anyone might imagine, leaving on a honeymoon without your spouse has to be near the top of nightmare travel scenarios.
We hope none of you have to experience the misery. With that said, it looks like you can still manage a great time.
