A South African surprised his parents after being “stuck” in New Zealand for almost three years… shoowweee, this is giving us all the feels!


Mpumalanga, South Africa (04 August) – Norm Calmeyer, a South African living in New Zealand, is giving us all the feels with his surprise visit to his parents, who live in the foresty town of Sabie in South Africa.

The pandemic kept many families apart, and the rise in flight prices makes it feel like there is no end in sight, but this South African living in New Zealand knew that he had to visit his ageing parents, if not just to see him one more time.

Calmeyer says that both his parents are “a little frail” and had consoled themselves that they would likely never see him again.

He planned the whole thing with family, and they all managed to keep it under wraps.
