This Man Is Looking for a Canadian Woman Named Just Like His Ex-Girlfriend to Take on Free Trip Around the World

If your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, you might just be the lucky winner of a free three-week vacation around the world. The generous offer was made public by 27-year-old Jordan Axani, from Canada, who broke up with his girlfriend after all the plans for the trip had been finalized. Now that his girlfriend won’t be joining him, he’s searching for a Canadian woman with the same name, so she can use her ticket.

“In March I booked a fairly wicked trip around the world for this Christmas for my ex and I,” Jordan explained on Reddit. “While our relationship has come to a close, I am still planning on going on the trip and she is not (naturally). And because I hate the idea of a ticket around the world going to waste, I am looking for a Canadian named Elizabeth Gallagher who could use the ticket.”

The itinerary for the epic trip – starting December 21 – includes cities like New York, Milan, Paris, Bangkok and New Delhi. “The tickets were frankly so cheap and on so many different airlines that they’re not worth the headache or money to cancel,” he admitted. So he thought it best to share the ticket with someone who is “sane, smart, and (hopefully) interesting”, who has “always wanted to travel” and is “ready for a rather spontaneous life experience.”

Jordan was quick to point out that he has no ‘romantic intentions’; he simply wants to find a companion who is up for ‘travelling together and seeing some cool stuff’. “I am not looking for anything in return, I am not looking for companionship, romance, drugs, a trade, or to take selfies with you in front the Christmas Market in Prague,” the generous man wrote.

“If you feel compelled to toss me a couple hundred bucks, great. Really the only thing I ask for is that you enjoy this trip and that it bring you happiness. We can travel together and see some cool stuff – or not. I’m easy and have no problem with someone taking the tickets and doing their own thing (see ya on the plane!).”

Jordan also revealed that the offer is only valid for the flights. He hasn’t had a chance to plan the trip yet, so no hotels or trains have been booked. So the woman who gets the free ticket will be pretty much on her own during the trip – but he has offered to buy her a glass of wine at JFK airport before departure.

So far, Jordan has received a few responses, one of them from a woman old enough to be his mother. “Hi, My name is Liz ( Elizabeth) Gallagher. I’m Canadian … But I’m old enough to be his Mom. If there’s no younger person to step up I’d have to say it would be interesting. My girls ( 25 and 23 ) tell me DO IT MOM! they wish now that they had my name. LOL”

Jordan didn’t seem to be bothered by the woman’s age, though. He replied that it was ‘awesome’ and asked her to get in touch with him. I think it’s pretty nice what he’s trying to do, but it’s probably going to be kind of awkward to travel with a person of the same name as his ex, don’t you think?
