Guy Looking For Woman With Same Name As His Ex To Use Round-The-World Plane Tickets

Listen up, ladies: If you have a Canadian passport and happen to have the same name as this guy’s ex-girlfriend, you could be in for a treat. And by that I mean, you’ll get free plane tickets to go on a trip around the world with a stranger.

What’s a person to do when half of their trip planned for two is longer in the picture? In a scenario that’s just begging to be made into a romantic comedy, one openminded fellow in Canada went to Reddit to find someone to take his ex’s plane tickets for a round-the-world trip planned when they were still together, explaining that basically it’s just too complicated to switch everything now. But, he says, he hates the idea of a ticket around the world going to waste.

All you need is to pay for everything besides flights, and have the right name and passport to use the ticket, he explains in a Reddit post, adding that he’s not in this for the money, or for any creepy reasons:

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.

He adds that you can travel together to see the sights, or not. His only requirements are that the woman be sane, smart, “(hopefully) interesting,” and be ready for a spontaneous travel experience, as well as the idea of paying it forward in the future.

“I’ve been lucky in life and this is me giving back to the universe. Do something similar someday.”

The route (and again, you’d have to pay for all trains, buses, hotels, etc. in between):

December 21: NYC –> Milan
December 28: Prague –> Paris
December 29: Paris –> Bangkok
January 7: Bangkok –> New Dehli
January 8: New Dehli –> Toronto

He adds in an update that he’s heard from several women with the right name, but is still open to taking more applicants. Here is when I mull whether it’s worth changing my name/country of residency.
