You really must feel for swedish couple Stefan and Erika Svanstrom who have had one heck of an unlucky honeymoon. You see, everywhere they turn, disaster happens. Over the course of their trip, they’ve come across six natural disasters. Those disasters, in order:
1. In December, the newly married couple set off on their four-month long honeymoon. They couldn’t leave though because they were stranded in Munich, in the midst of one of Europe’s worst snowstorms.
2. Their next stop turned out to be in the middle of a cyclone (Cairns). Thankfully, this disaster spared the city, for the most part.
3. They moved on to Brisbane, which saw historic levels of flooding that crippled the Australian state.
4. Their next encounter was with the troublesome brushfires in Perth. The couple was ecacuated and forced to spend an evening on a concrete floor.
5. After the incident in Perth, the couple opted to move on to New Zealand. Right before they arrived, the 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch.
6. Finally, they moved on to Tokyo, where the 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck about a month ago.
Talk about an unlucky honeymoon. Thankfully, the couple (and their infant daughter) was largely injured and maintained their sense of humor.
“We’ve certainly experienced more than our fair share of catastrophes in a marriage, but the most important thing is that we’re still going strong. I know marriages have to endure some trials, but I think we have been through most of them,” Mr. Svanstrom told the Sydney Morning Herald.
