Breaking up sucks, but breaking up after you've already paid for a big trip together makes it suck worse. You're not gonna go together, or you're just flushing money down the toilet. But when faced with this exact dilemma, 28-year-old Jordan Axani got creative: he took to Reddit to find a girl with the same name as his ex to use her round-the-world ticket. For FREE.
After being flooded with thousands of emails from Elizabeth Gallaghers, the Toronto-based real estate developer found the one: Elizabeth “Quinn” Gallagher, a 23-year-old student, homeless shelter volunteer, and all-round do-gooder from Nova Scotia.
Quinn’s friends and family encouraged her to apply. “Some of my sweetest aunts in the world...were saying, ‘If you don’t go on this, you are crazy’”, she told The Star. “I thought this is a crazy opportunity. Even if I didn’t get picked, I felt like I had to say I tried.”
