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.

遠距離戀情很辛苦,因為情侶長時間分隔兩地。這些戀情很少能維持長久。如果你在尋找一些能待在一起的靈感的話,一對在克羅埃西亞的白鸛已經證明了愛可以戰勝任何距離。十五多年前,兩隻名為瑪萊娜及克萊普頓的白鸛在克羅埃西亞一位退休學校管理員家的屋頂築巢。每年冬天,這種白鸛會往南方長距離飛行到非洲較溫暖的地帶。
