New bride Donna Clark makes an 8,318-mile round trip every fortnight to visit her husband Bryan.

Donna, 41, of Cleveland, US, first takes an 8 hour flight to Glasgow then takes a train, ferry and car to the Isle of Skye to see Bryan who runs a hostel. They wed in April and she plans to land a job with a UK airline. That's sooooo sweet!!!! :D

What a friendly UK POE ;)

How sweet...but is she independently wealthy? Holy mackeral, Nicky and I were luckier than most where we saw eachother every 3 months or so, but every fortnight? And flying INTO Glasgow from the US isn't cheap either!

But hell, if you can do it why not :D

Yes, a friendly POE can be wonderful!

I've visited the USA 10 times in the last two years with no more than six weeks in between most visits and was really lucky to get in this last time. The POE asked a mountain of questions and I was really beginning to think he was going to refuse me entry.

I think the fact that my fiance was waiting for me to clear immigration helped a lot. He had just visited me for a week in Scotland and we travelled back to the USA together! Maybe it was the look on his face when the POE glanced over at him several times? :hehe:

Unfortunately, because I'm not independently weathy, I won't be visiting again until the K1 comes through. I can't afford to pay $1700 for a flight and then get turned back ... but if she can do it - all good wishes and good luck to her!!

Have a great weekend everyone ...

She's got to be an airline steward already to be wanting to find a job with a UK airliner.. that would help a bit!!! I can't imagine that running a hostel will bring in plane tickets fortnightly... bless I love stories like these!! Yeah it was like every 3 or 4 months we'd see eachother too and I thought that we were wealthy :lol:

Wow that was lucky then :D considering US POEs are tightly strung with security, but we love it like that :) I think the UK POE got to know her as well as her own hubby :lol:

Am I the only person thinking that it would make more sense for them to get married in the US on holiday (thereby avoiding the need for a UK fiance visa), file for her UK spousal visa, and return to the UK and then look for that elusive UK airline job? Surely if she is already work-authorised in the UK, the airlines might find her a more attractive candidate. Is her job that awesome that she would go through all this rigamarole every fortnight instead of moving to Scotland right now?

She's got to be the wealthy one. He can't make that much from a hostel.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

By my calculation, if she's a member of a FF mile program at least every 5th flight is free :P

Very good point. She might do a lot of business travel. But I was also thinking if she was looking for a job as a flight attendent in the UK, that is likely her stateside career. One of my friend's dad is a pilot for United, and I believe the major perk was him and his family could fly anywhere in the world for free (as long as you fly standby).
