Reddit – 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.
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.
The route is as follows:
- December 21: NYC –> Milan
- December 28: Prague –> Paris
- December 29: Paris –> Bangkok
- January 7: Bangkok –> New Dehli
- January 8: New Dehli –> Toronto
Some ground rules:
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.
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.
We can totally stay in India a couple days longer. Long story, but if we can come to agreement the airline can push back the return flight on both tickets (it’s both or nothin’) with no charge.
Still interested? Please meet the following, more or less:
- Be sane, smart and (hopefully) interesting.
- Have always wanted to travel, but maybe haven’t had the opportunity or cash to see much of the world.
- Be named Elizabeth Gallagher and have a Canadian passport.
- Be ready for a rather spontaneous life experience that will, one day, be an epic story that you’ll tell your kids.
- Pay it forward. I’ve been lucky in life and this is me giving back to the universe. Do something similar someday.
Interested? Shoot me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat.
Forget all the show-stoppers, this is how you live life.
Break up with your girlfriend and have a bad ass tripped planned around the world?
Pounce on Reddit and throw it out there and see how many nibbles you get.
Only one problem.
If you think for a fucking second that this guy doesn’t expect the wildest and most raunchiest revenge-hate-sex in return, you’re crazier than the ex that broke up with him right before a trip around the world.
Book an app for a Brazilian and tidy yourself up, because if your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, prepare for the wildest trip of your life.
