If you or someone you know you know is named Elizabeth Gallagher and happens to be a Canadian passport holder, a heartbroken Jordan Axani has a round-the-world air ticket for you.
Axani, from Toronto, booked the ticket for him and his then-girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher earlier this year before their relationship turned sour. Now Axani, 27, has a pricey ticket for an 18-day trip that he doesn't want to go to waste.
He’s looking for someone that has the same name as his ex who holds a Canadian passport.
He took to Reddit to begin his search, writing:
“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) I'm likely game.”
So why doesn’t Axani just return the tickets or cash them in? He told the CBC that the tickets – which leave from New York's JFK International Airport on Dec. 21 and include stops in Italy, France, Thailand and India, were purchased on a discount website and flights are on a number of different airlines.
He says the hassle of changing a name on the ticket is either "not worth the headache" or "damn near impossible."
We reached out Axani and are waiting to hear back. But in the meantime, he tweeted out this encouraging note.
For anyone that's emailed for an interview, none will be possible this morning. Just know that many Elizabeth Gallaghers have come forward!
