Life doesn’t always go according to plan – especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Lovers make future plans together all the time only to find that, as a couple, that future never comes. No one is more familiar with this right now than 27-year-old Jordan Axani.
Axani booked an incredible, around-the-world trip for him and his girlfriend recently. The trip, scheduled to take place around Christmas, would have them touch down in Paris, Milan, Bangkhoh, New Delhi and Toronto over a three week span. The only problem? Axani and his girlfriend just broke up.
As you probably know, airlines are notoriously unforgiving when it comes to refunding or exchanging ticket purchases. Because of this, Axani is stuck with an extra ticket for his transcontinental voyage and needs someone to accompany him. But, as he just found out, getting a name changed on a plane ticket is “damn near impossible.”
He now finds himself writing to the internet masses with a bizarre request:
“In March I booked a fairly wicked trip around the world for this Christmas for my ex and I,” he wrote in a Reddit post. “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.”
There are no strings attached with the offer, Axani writes. All you have to do is be a Canadian woman named Elizabeth Gallagher.
“I am not looking for anything in return,” he says. “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.”
Axani updated his reddit post recently with some good news: Canada is full of Elizabeth Gallaghers.
“Lots of Elizabeth Gallaghers have come forward and will continue to do so, which is all kinds of amazing (yay internet!)” he writes. His only task now is choosing the right one.
Once again, ladies and gentlemen: the power of the internet.
