RTW Trip for Man Who Found Woman with Ex’s Name Comes to End

by Adam

They’re back! Remember the guy from Canada who booked a RTW ticket and then broke up with his girlfriend? He conducted a month-long search and among thousands of email responses selected a different Elizabeth Gallagher to be his seatmate on the trip. Jordan Axani and Elizabeth returned from their adventure last week and GMA/Yahoo! has a run-down of the trip (thanks to Mark at Yahoo! for sharing):

In three weeks, the pair traveled to Milan, Vienna, Prague, Paris, southern Thailand, Bangkok then Delhi, India, and an unexpected stop in Hong Kong due to visa complications before returning to North America on Jan. 12. “While traveling with a complete stranger may seem like an odd idea to many, Quinn and I had an incredible experience on our trip around the world,” Axani told ABC News. “From Prague to Paris to Hong Kong, we learned so much from the different cultures and the incredible people we met along the way. We both felt so lucky to have had such a life changing experience.”

Marriott agreed to be the charity’s travel partner and housed the pair in separate rooms. Gallagher, a recent graduate of St. Francis Xavier University, has a “serious” boyfriend, she said.  Upon her return to Nova Scotia on Wednesday, Gallagher tweeted a photo with her dog, saying: “Home sweet home in good ol Nova Scotia! Still can’t believe this whirl wind world trip is over!”

The two say there wasn’t any romance on the trip, but they plan to stay in touch. A headline in the Toronto Star read, “Elizabeth Gallagher back in boyfriend’s arms after round-the-world trip.”
