Imagine two people living thousands of miles away with little chance of them ever meeting and yet something as simple as a typo brings them together! No this is not the next romcom, it is the story of Ruben from Texas and Rachel from Thailand.
Having very similar names is the nightmare of the internet, how often do you try for a username only to find that someone else has the same name. In this case, having similar names meant that Ruben received an email that should have been sent to Rachel! Ruben decided to forward on to her and this was literally the start of a beautiful relationship!
This is the story that lies behind the interesting and heart warming video;
In January 2007, Rachel P. Salazar and Ruben P. Salazar were living 9,000 miles apart and completely unaware of each other’s existence. However, when an email meant for Rachel accidentally went to Ruben, it wasn’t long before an ordinary mistake began to look like an extraordinary stroke of luck.
