True Love.

And awfully cute, too.

A pair of German children, 6 and 7, decided to elope to Africa to marry "where it's warm". They took the girl's 5-year-old sister along to be the witness to the ceremony.

They had the forethought to pack clothes, lunch, and swimming costumes, but unfortunately were a little short of money for the flights. Nevertheless they made it a kilometre to the tram stop, took the tram to the central railway station, and were waiting for the airport train when a guard spotted them.

The guards managed to convince them they wouldn't be able to fly without tickets. Their relieved parents collected them soon after.
