Travel #CoupleGoals

Fittingly so, the proposal took place during this couple’s travels. Throughout the course of their relationship, Alan and Sally have traveled the world together, some places they have been to are Greece, Thailand, Dubai! So, how did Alan ask?

How the Capetown Proposal Happened

In 2019, these lovebirds booked a flight to South Africa, Capetown. Before they were about to go on a wine tour, Alan popped the question in their hotel room at AC Hotel Capetown.

As Sally was getting together the essentials to bring, Alan was behind her on one knee, teary-eyed, and said “you forgot something.” When Sally turned around, Alan proposed and apparently “was so nervous that he had the ring box opened upside down…” Sally said she blacked out afterward because she forgot what happened after, other than saying “YES!” Sally was truly so surprised. After that beautiful memory in their hotel room, the couple set out to visit six vineyards.
