This kind of takes the lonely crown, kind of takes the awesome crown. A 28-year-old real estate developer from Toronto by the name of Jordan Axani had bought tickets for a 3-week trip around the world with his then-girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher earlier this year…only to later split and be stuck with a non-refundable, non-transferable ticket. So what’s a man to do? Well, he made an announcement online, offering up his ex’s plane tickets for free to a woman with the same name, and the result was thousands of emails…including 18 from Elizabeth Gallaghers with Canadian passports.
Today, Axani announced he’d chosen 23-year-old Elizabeth “Quinn” Gallagher, a student and part-time office administrator from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. The two are meeting up in NYC today, and will continue Sunday to Milan, Vienna, Prague, Paris, southern Thailand, Bangkok then Delhi, India, before returning home January 12. Axani bought the tickets for a couple thousand dollars during a travel site’s blowout, and they are apparently worth twice as much.
“At the end of the day, I’m just a simple guy from Canada,” Axani told ABC News. “Initially, when the story broke, it was shocking. I didn’t have any anticipation this would happen. The original story implicated my ex-girlfriend, which was very difficult as well.”
You want to hear the best part? The girl has a man! And of course – he’s not happy!
