As many frequent travelers know, there are few things as delightful as unexpectedly running into a good friend from home while you’re on vacation.

Melissa McCarthy has been on a European vacation with husband Ben Falcone, and on Tuesday — during a stop at a resort in Antiparos, Greece — she ran into an old coworker: Yanic Truesdale.

Although the two actors played combative characters on “Gilmore Girls,” they appear to have gotten along swimmingly when they met up at the hotel pool.

“By coincidence, we both booked … a vacation at the same time in Greece!” Truesdale wrote on Instagram. He hashtagged the photo #magicaltiming and #bestvacations.

Two days earlier, Truesdale had posted another vacation photo with a “Gilmore Girls” connection: He shared a picture of himself reading Lauren Graham’s new book on the beach.

Although we don’t know for sure where the “Gilmore Girls” alums stayed, you can take inspiration from Sookie and Michel and plan your own getaway in Greece: Check out our reader-approved list of the best resort hotels in Greece, and when in Greece don't skip Santorini, named the best island in Europe by Travel + Leisure readers in our 2017 World’s Best Awards.

As McCarthy and Truesdale just proved, you never know whom you may run into while island hopping.
