A bored Tesco driver who decided to learn a new language during lockdown last year is set to marry the "love of his life" after a whirlwind romance with a Mexican woman he met online. Paul Gardner, 31, took a leap of faith in January and travelled to Mexico to meet Tania Alejandra, 36, as love blossomed between the pair, after she spent several months teaching him Spanish.

During lockdown I started to think about learning Spanish because I was bored and wanted something new to do. So I joined an app called HelloTalk, where you get to chat with native speakers, last August. Tania started to message me. I knew a few phrases in Spanish, so I would talk to her and she would speak to me to improve her English too. "Then after a few weeks we started video calling and we would end up chatting for three or four, sometimes five hours. I started to feel like I really liked her and I didn't really care how far away she was. "After two years of Covid lockdown, I really felt like I needed to be somewhere different, so that was the point where I decided I would just go to visit her." Paul, from Bathgate, met fiancée Tania Alejandra from Toluca, Mexico, whilst studying Spanish on the Hello Talk app (Image: Daily Record) Five months after meeting Tania on the app, Paul arrived in the Mexican city of Toluca on January 17, travelling the furthest he has ever been on his own. He describes meeting Tania at the airport as the 'most emotional' of his life. He added: "I told my mum why I was going to Mexico and she thought it was crazy. I flew from London and I remember shaking and having to splash water on my face because I thought I was going to have a panic attack.

. It was the most emotional moment of my life. It sounds cheesy by I knew as soon as I saw her that she was the one. So I guess it's okay that people do crazy things for love." Paul proposed to Tania on Edinburgh's Royal Mile (Image: Daily Record) Paul and Tania toured around Mexico for the next four weeks and when the West Lothian man asked his new girlfriend to return back to Scotland with him she quickly agreed. Paul continued: "Most people bring back their mum a fridge magnet back from holiday, but I brought back a Mexican girl. Tania has been at home in Bathgate with me ever since. She's been to Scotland before and she loves it here. "She thinks the people are friendly and her favourite thing is Tunnocks Teacakes. But after learning how much she loved Edinburgh, I knew I had to propose to her there."
