#FriendshipFriday: Lisa's story
To mark the end of the Yuujou journey, we tell you a touching story on long distance friendship. We are happy to share the story of Lisa and Morgane. The two friends met while studying together at the same university in Lyon, France, and five years later are still best friends.
"When Morgane left France for New Zealand, we said we would speak to each other about our everyday life as often as possible, to be in contact and to maintain our friendship," Lisa writes. Read on to know how the two kept in touch despite being on different continents and in different time zones.
This is Lisa's story:
"Morgane and I met 5 years ago in Lyon, France, when we were both studying Art History at university. When Morgane left France for New Zealand, we said we would speak to each other about our everyday life as often as possible, to be in contact and to maintain our friendship.
And that's what we did! Even when Morgane was lost in the countryside with bad internet access, we shared our stories in detail and supported each other through tough moments. Most of the time, we talked through video calls because it was important to spend time together, just like the "good old days".
Five years later, the two are still friends and they try to talk to each other as frequently as possible.
We hope you've enjoyed reading these stories as much as we have enjoyed sharing them with you. And in the future, we hope these friendship stories continue to inspire you to reconnect with old friends and create new friendships with strangers. Always remember: We are #heretomakefriends!
