    Props for her, too. I think it's rather gutsy to simply jump onboard with someone she's never met. Her significant other isn't too happy about it. I hope it goes well and neither of the travelers run into complications.

    And it is awfully nice that Marriott is providing them free accommodations.
    Are two rooms necessary? How about 1 room with two beds? :D

    "She acknowledged her boyfriend isn't thrilled."

    Clearly she did not go through with this with her 'serious' boyfriend before submitting her details. :rolleyes:

    And why should she have. An opportunity like this does not come around often. Sheesh! We do not live in the Middle Ages any more.

    At the risk of sounding ancient... if she was my girlfriend, I would have promised her a similar trip (in time) and prefer her not leave me during Christmas and travel for 3 weeks with a stranger. This is the same stranger who recently broke up from a relationship and picked her out of 17 other possible candidates. It just feels wrong and this Christmas will feel so cold...

    There appears to be a very long vetting process by Axani.

    Kudos to Marriott, it's nice that they provide the accomodation for free. Your idea with two beds = one room got me thinking. :oops:

    Wishing them a wonderful RTW trip. Cheers & Enjoy. It's a world out there, glad he found "his" Elizabeth Gallagher after a vetting process took place. :)

    UPDATE:

    Love not on the itinerary as Canadian pair return from round-the-world trip
    Jordan Axani says they had ‘a blast’ but stresses that three-week jaunt with stranger who shared his ex-girlfriend’s name was ‘strictly platonic’

    A Canadian man who sprang to fame after offering a free round-the-world trip to a woman with the same name as his ex-girlfriend has returned from the jaunt with his chosen namesake, although to the dismay of those following the story, love did not blossom between the pair.

    Jordan Axani, a 28-year-old Toronto real estate developer turned charity founder, made it back to Canada on Monday morning with Elizabeth Quinn Gallagher, but told the Guardian the pair had “forged a brother-sister-like relationship”.

    Axani had made headlines in 2014 after offering an air ticket to any Canadian named Elizabeth Gallagher. He had booked a three-week vacation with his ex-girlfriend, but after they split was unable to change the name on the flights.

    Read the rest of the story - they said they forged a brother/sister like relationship which is a good thing. Take a peak at their pictures - they look like brother and sister.
