This Guy Is Offering A Trip Round The World, There's Just One Tiny Thing
What a perfect time to be alive. And to be Elizabeth Gallagher from Canada.
Jordan has finally found a companion for his trip around the world. After receiving 18 emails from Elizabeth Gallaghers from Canada, Axani picked a 23-year-old Elizabeth Quinn Gallagher from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Associated Press reports. They will start the 18-day trip around the world in Milan, Italy on December 23.

Breakups are tough.
They're even tougher if you have just bought TWO tickets for the most amazing globetrotting experience in your life and find out your ass has been dumped.
What sounds like a plot of the next Hollywood blockbuster, is actually a very real story of a Canadian man named Jordan Axani, more famously known as the "trip around the world guy."
This is Jordan, a 27-year-old Canadian who crashed the Internet with his unusual offer.
Back in March, Jordan went above and beyond planning the ultimate Christmas present for his girlfriend. He planned an 18-day trip that would literally take them around the world:
December 21: NYC -> Milan
December 28: Prague -> Paris
December 29: Paris -> Bangkok
January 7: Bangkok -> New Delhi
January 8: New Delhi -> Toronto
The only problem is that Jordan and his girlfriend split up.
Being a wise and pragmatic guy, Jordan didn't want the second ticket go to waste. He is attempting to find another Canadian girl with the exact same name, Elizabeth Gallagher, and give her the plane ticket free of charge.
Jordan posted his message to Reddit trying to find another Canadian girl named Elizabeth Gallagher and give her the breathtaking present, a trip around the world.
Axani makes it clear he is 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. 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," Axani writes in his post.
He also makes it clear that the "gift" would only include plane tickets, as he has dropped the whole trip planning game in the wake of the breakup. Naturally, Jordan also has some requirements for the lucky traveler-to-be.
1. Be sane, smart and (hopefully) interesting.
2. Have always wanted to travel, but maybe haven't had the opportunity or cash to see much of the world.
3. Be named Elizabeth Gallagher and have a Canadian passport.
4. Be ready for a rather spontaneous life experience that will, one day, be an epic story that you'll tell your kids.
5. Pay it forward. I've been lucky in life and this is me giving back to the universe. Do something similar someday.
