This guy videotaped his travels to 26 countries, lip syncing to ‘I’m going to be (500 miles),’ to propose to his girlfriend

According to Jack Hyer, he knew he would marry his girlfriend from the first date. He even wrote it in a diary. And so, after that, Jack went traveling across the world and visited 26 countries. All along, he taped his travels lip syncing to The Proclaimers’ “I’m going to be (500 Miles).”
