Free Round the World Trip for Anyone Named Elizabeth Gallagher

A man surprised his girlfriend with a round the world trip–but broke up soon after.

Now he’s offering a free ticket around the world to anyone with her name, Elizabeth Gallagher.

From the Daily Mail:

 Taking off on December 21 from New York’s JFK International Airport, the 18-day whirlwind trip takes in Italy, France, Thailand and India, before heading back to Toronto.

To begin his search, he posted a plea on Reddit. It said: ‘I need your help. You 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.

  2. Aren’t round-the-world tickets typically refundable for a relatively small fee?

  3. From reading the original interview, that guy states they’re still good friends. I wonder why they can’t travel together as friends?!?!?

    What makes this tough is the trip is over the Xmas holiday season. Even if my name is Elizabeth Gallagher I wouldn’t go on a RTW trip with someone I don’t know… would rather be with my family.
