Guy seeks woman with name of ex-girlfriend to travel around the world

Jordan Axani and his girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher planned what he described as a “wicked” trip around the world at Christmastime. And then they broke up.

So rather than going through all of the hassle associated with changing the plane ticket, the objectively handsome, available bachelor turned to Reddit to offer the trip up to one lucky lady who could meet two criteria: First, she needs a Canadian passport. Second, she’s got to have the legal name “Elizabeth Gallagher.”

The trip really does sound pretty sweet. Check out this dream vaycay itinerary:

Dec. 21: Depart from New York City to Milan

Dec. 28: Prague to Paris

Dec 29: Paris to Bangkok

Jan. 7: Bangkok to New Dehli

Jan 8: New Dehli to Toronto

To be crystal clear, Axani doesn’t expect anything sordid in return for the tickets.

“I am not looking for anything in return,” Axani writes. “I am not looking for companionship, romance, drugs, a trade, or to take selfies with you in front the Christmas Market in Prague. 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.”

Now, there’s no real guarantee this guy isn’t annoying. But he’s willing to let the lucky Elizabeth Gallagher do her own thing on the trip, and it sounds like the adventure might be worth the risk. Axani even offers to buy the winner a glass of wine prior to departure.

If you’re starting to warm up to the offer, you’re not alone. Axani says he’s been contacted by “lots” of potential travel companions. He also promises to keep Reddit posted on how the trip goes.

“Lots of Elizabeth Gallaghers have come forward and will continue to do so, which is all kinds of amazing, yay internet!” Axani says. “And rather than posting here, if you want to get in touch directly with me please shoot a note to Thanks!”

So what do you think? Would you be willing to roll the dice on a trip around the world with a jilted stranger?
