A Tale of Two Love Birds 克服遠距離的白鸛愛侶 This special couple gives new meaning to long-distance relationships. 這對特別的鳥兒賦予遠距離戀情新的意義。
Long-distance relationships can be very difficult because couples are far apart for long periods of time. Not many of these relationships last for a long time. If you are looking for some inspiration▼ to stay together, a pair of storks▼ in Croatia has proven that love can defeat any distance. More than 15 years ago, two storks named Malena and Klepetan made their nest on top of a retired school janitor’s▼ house in Croatia. Each winter, this species▼ of stork makes the long flight south to warmer climates in Africa. After being shot in the wing one year, Malena could no longer make the journey, so Klepetan went by himself. What’s amazing is that every spring for more than a decade, Klepetan has managed to make the trip, around 13,000 kilometers, back to Malena. This unlikely couple in the animal kingdom proves that true love can survive long distances. The two storks’ special relationship has made them one of Croatia’s most famous couples. Newspapers even report when Klepetan makes his springtime return. After all these years, the love birds are still together. Maybe people can learn a thing or two from the animal kingdom.
