An Interesting Proposal from German Tourist to his Turkish Girlfriend
A German tourist having holiday in Fethiye proposed to his girlfriend for 2.5 years with a microphone on a boat.
The German tourist came to Turkey secretly. Holiday-makers nearby heard his screams “Ich liebe dich, I love you, Will you marry me?” and were surprised.
Michael Austermann (39), Owner of a carbon factory in Germany, had met Herbalist Nursel Işık (35) in Germany 2.5 years ago. Knowing that his girlfriend went to Fethiye for vacation, Michael Austermann had an agreement with a tourism businessman from Fethiye to propose to her with a surprise and rented the boat named “İlyas 2.” He also arranged the musicians. Michael Austermann came from Germany to Fethiye by a plane and called Nursel Işık at about 08.30 p.m. by surprise and asked her to dinner in a restaurant on the coast road in Fethiye. He left his accommodation in Çalış and got on the boat İlyas 2 that was waiting for him. He came from Çalış Beach to the coastline with musicians on the boat and started screaming “Ich liebe dich, I love you, Will you marry me?” with a microphone as soon as he saw his girlfriend. Having thought that they would only have dinner, Nursel Işık was surprised. Nursel Işık said yes in the middle of a surprised crowd and the couple hugged each other. After Michael Austermann presented her a bouquet of flowers, he gave her the engagement ring on his knees.
The couple held hands accompanied by a serenade of Turkish music and went to have dinner with their friends. Nursel Işık was very moved by the proposal and said, “I did not expect this proposal. We were going to meet for dinner at the restaurant. We had met in Germany 2.5 years ago. It was a big surprise for me.”
Michael Austermann said he has a carbon factory in Germany, “I proposed her this way to show my love to Nursel and marry her. We can have the wedding in Turkey as well.”
