A thrill-seeker and romantic Jordan Axani booked an around-the-world plane ticket for him and his girlfriend in March.
But his relationship with Elizabeth Gallagher came to an end, leaving the 27-year-old with the entire pricey travel tickets and no one to share it with.
Knowing that it is almost impossible to change the name on an airplane ticket due to the many protocols, the Canadian had no choice but to begin a hunt to find someone with the same name as his ex.
He posted his story on Reddit:
â€œYou see, in March I booked a fairly wicked trip around the world for this Christmas for my ex and I. 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.
“Anyone familiar with with the archaic system that is modern air travel will know that a name change on a ticket is damn near impossible. Moreover, the flights were purchased during a massive blow-up on Priceline and were frankly so cheap and on so many different airlines that they’re not worth the headache or money to cancel.â€
“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. 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!). Embracing the spontaneity of life is more my thing, though, so if you want to travel together (and are not an axe murder) Iâ€™m likely game.
“This is for the flights only. In the wake of the breakup I have deferred all further planning for the trip. No hotels, trains or anything have been booked. You’re on your own, bucko. Having said that, I will buy the first round of vino at JFK upon departure.”
This three-week trip begins from December 21 and ends January 8, 2015. It’s a romantic getaway from New York to Milan, to Prague, to Paris, to Bangkok, to New Dehli, and then back to Toronto.
Wow. Any gistviller with the name Elizabeth Gallagher?
