It’s an extreme case of miscommunication.
Australian newlyweds Orin and Melissa van Lingen planned the honeymoon of their dreams, heading to Brazil in time for the World Cup — or so they thought.
Turns out, due to a serious snafu with their travel agent, the couple landed in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador — not Salvador, Brazil where Friday’s Spain versus Holland World Cup game was being played.
They’re only about 3,000 miles apart.
On Friday, Melissa van Lingen told the Sunday Territorian, Darwin, Australia’s local paper, that they were devastated.
"The game we watched today was the one we had a ticket for, Spain versus Holland, but unfortunately we had to watch it on TV — in a different country," she said. "The hardest part was seeing my husband’s face — it was heartbreaking."
The travel agency responsible for the mix-up says they are working to get the couple’s honeymoon back on track.
