Maia and I first met on Skype on April 19, 2009. We struck up simple conversa- tions and learned about each other’s lives and cultures. We started to commu- nicate more daily via video chat and instant message. We learned that we have a lot in common and that we share the same beliefs and philosophies. We met for the first time on July 27, 2011 in Tbilisi, Georgia. I stayed at Maia’s family’s apartment. Most of our activities were sightseeing around the country.
