Congratulations to the winning couple of the #EUlovewithoutborders competition Alexandra and Pierre

For the celebration of Interreg 25 years as an EU programme for territorial cooperation, a Valentine's Challenge was launched on 14 February inviting all EU love birds to share their great love story. The success of love beyond borders encouraged some 82 couples to participate, of which 67 were eligible according to the terms of reference. We had a great response – more than 3,000 "likes" for our first Facebook post alone.
The resulting photo album including accompanying texts is available on the Europe in my region Facebook page.
25 couples were shortlisted for interviews.
After hearing many great stories on how the couples met, which obstacles they faced and how they managed to overcome them, the winning couple of the EUlovewithoutborders competition is:
