While bringing that big, shiny cup back to Aotearoa was an experience of a lifetime for the rower-turned-sailor, Joe's true highlight was, of course, dropping to one knee and proposing to his girlfriend of four years, who he met "on that really cool online-dating thing called Tinder".

"I couldn't say no to an opportunity like that," she tells. "It was a scary decision to make, but it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life."

However, everything changed when the pair enjoyed an unbelievable day in Florence together only a week into their trip.

"It was just one of those amazing days where everything was just right," recalls Jordyn with a sigh.

"They don't happen very often, but it really was perfect – romantic lunch, romantic dinner, heaps of sightseeing ... I actually remember thinking earlier in the day, 'If he would propose today, it really would be the best day ever!'"

Joe finally found the right moment just after 10pm, when they were strolling underneath Florence's famous Ponte Vecchio bridge in the moonlight.

"We were walking along and everything just seemed to fit," he tells.

"I can't even describe the feelings I felt," she says, shaking her head. "Happy! Excited! Amazing!"

After enjoying a few more weeks in Europe, the pair headed home, where wedding plans are now full steam ahead. Shunning a long engagement, Joe and Jordyn are looking forward to marrying this summer.

"We just get on – everything is so easy," says Joe. "That's when you realise you're in the perfect situation. Everything really is perfect!"
