Groom jets off on honeymoon solo after bride loses passport

An Indian photographer is enjoying a fabulous Italian honeymoon, but his bride didn't get to come along due to a missing passport.

Faizan Patel and his new wife Sana got married back in December, and Sana had planned a two-week trip to Italy.

But just two days before they were supposed to leave, she experienced a moment that could make any world traveler panic: she realized she'd lost her passport.

Faizan went on the trip anyway.

On Monday, he tweeted a photo of himself with a picture of Sana over an empty seat, and for a while they thought that tweet had saved the day.

India's Minister of External Affairs saw it, and took steps to get a duplicate passport to Sana.

But Faizan says Sana also needed a visa for the trip. Now he's working against time to get that before the honeymoon is over.
