There were no flights from his home in Sicily to his grandmother in England. However, what Romeo wanted more than anything was to give her a hug. Romeo had not seen his grandmother for over a year during the lockdown, so he planned a trip.
He told The Daily Mail, “I asked my parents and they said no more than 50 times. Eventually, they agreed—provided we planned everything was Covid-safe. I drew a map. We got lost a few times, we slept under a wasp nest which wasn’t a good idea, got bloody feet, but we never thought about giving up.” After 93 difficult days, he was reunited with his grandmother.
