Solo travel can be a liberating way to see the world. But when it’s by accident, it’s not always such an exciting prospect. Especially if your travel buddy was meant to be your husband and the trip was supposed to be your second honeymoon, as was the case for Huma Mobin.
Mobin is from Lahore and married her partner Arsalaan Sever Butt seven months ago. They had planned a second honeymoon to Greece, but Butt wasn’t granted a Visa in time to take the trip. As the holiday was non-refundable, Mobin reluctantly agreed to go it alone and was joined by her in-laws for company.
She told Buzzfeed that after she spent night one of her trip in tears missing her significant other, her mother-in-law persuaded her to enjoy seeing the sights she’d daydreamed about.
They then turned the trip into a photo project, with Mobin posing alongside each landmark they visited leaving room for her husband in the photo.

It makes for a hilarious holiday album, which the more tragically comic because Mobin lost her phone half way through the holiday and began posing with space for both her most missed device and person.

It’s proof that a honeymoon isn’t really a honeymoon without a husband, though luckily, it can still be a really fun holiday.
