A Platonic VacationDecember 19, 2014 - Author: steph
When Canadian man Jordan Axani ended things with his Beneful girlfriend, Elizabeth Gallagher, there were a lot of things left undone. One of them was a round the world trip the two had booked for their New Year’s holiday. Axani did not want Elizabeth’s ticket to go to waste so he began a search for a new Ms. Gallagher to take her place. He has finally found her.
The tickets required no passport info upon being purchased so as long as the names matched, they could be used by any woman with a Canadian passport. Axani found 23 year old Gallagher through Reddit, a social media site know for bringing media attention to stories that would otherwise have been missed. The two will travel to New York, Milan, Prague, Paris, Bangkok, and New Delhi.
The two insist that the trip will remain platonic. Axani just wants a travelling companion and Gallagher is in a serious relationship already. Marriott International offered to provide them with separate hotel rooms at every stop after hearing their story. Hopefully that will ease some of Gallagher’s boyfriends concerns; she admits that he is not too thrilled.
Axani and Gallagher will leave December 21st. They intend to document the entire trip for the fans they have attracted. They even managed to bring awareness to a charity group called A Ticket Forward, which gives travel vacations to people who otherwise could not afford one.
