Woman Trolls Boyfriend Who Cancelled Their First Romantic Holiday By Taking His Sister Instead
Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52
Winza Dieudonne, who lives in Orlando, Florida, spent seven months diligently planning an eight-day holiday to Santorini with her boyfriend Carlos Castro who lives more than 4,000 miles away in Madrid.
The 26-year-old social worker had booked flights, accommodation and excursions for them to enjoy together in July after four agonising months apart.
But her loved-up vacation dreams were left in tatters when, a fortnight before they were due to touch-down on the Greek island, Carlos revealed he was unable to go due to last-minute work commitments.
Security company manager Carlos, 26, who Winza met while she studied abroad, had been promoted and needed additional training, which fell on the dates they were due to be on holiday.
Yet while Carlos thought this meant Winza wouldn't be going on the trip either, she refused to waste all the months of planning she had put in.
Instead, Winza invited Carlos' 18-year-old sister Sandra Castro - who she'd briefly met just once before at a family dinner party in December and who can't speak English.
Sharing photos from her unexpected trip on social media, Winza wrote: "When your boyfriend cancels on your trip last minute, just take his sister and make it a girls' trip instead!
"He honestly thought that just because he was not going that I would cancel this trip. HA!"
Winza said: "Two weeks before we were supposed to go Carlos called me and said he had bad news. It was disappointing when he said he couldn't make it.
"I couldn't tell him not to take the offer, as it was a great thing for him and I didn't want to hold him back, but I told him that I wasn't going to be held back from my vacation either.
Adding: "Carlos thought I was going to cancel but I told him 'I'm sorry that's not how this works'. I'd spent money on this vacation, I'd been researching it, I'd made boat reservations and I'd been looking forward to it.
"Everything had been paid for so I wasn't going to cancel. I did consider going by myself but after a day or two I thought I'd ask his sister."
Winza texted Sandra and was delighted when she replied saying she was free and would love to join her on the impromptu trip.
Sandra, who doesn't speak English, landed at Santorini International Airport 30 minutes before Winza - who minored in Spanish when studying at the University of Central Florida.
Winza said: "I'd only met her once before so didn't know her that well. I was very nervous about it as she only speaks Spanish.
"It was kind of awkward at first, but the next day we went to Fira together and we clicked there while walking around.
"Inviting her on the trip and getting to spend time together with her was the best decision I've ever made, she's amazing."
Although the couple have endured 18 months in a long-distance relationship, that will soon come to an end as Winza is moving to Madrid in December, where we're sure they can finally enjoy a holiday together.
