Is your name Elizabeth Gallagher? Do you have a Canadian passport? Have no plans for Christmas? Then Jordan Axani of Toronto, Canada, has an offer for you! (Sorry, everyone else.)

Axani, 28, recently went through the difficult process of breaking up with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Gallagher, reports the CBC. While the split was relatively smooth, he was left with one big problem: the trip around the world that he’d previously booked for them over Christmas.

Not wanting one half of this journey to go to waste, Axani is reaching out to the Internet to find a new “Elizabeth Gallagher” to take over his ex’s part of the trip – for free, no strings attached.

The expansive vacation includes stops in New York City, Milan, Prague, Paris, Bangkok, New Delhi and Toronto. The lucky Elizabeth who gets to tag along will have all of her flights covered, but what happens between flights is up to her.

“We can travel together and see some cool stuff – or not. I’m easy and have no problem with someone taking the tickets and doing their own thing (see ya on the plane!),” Axani writes in his Reddit post about the offer. “Embracing the spontaneity of life is more my thing, though, so if you want to travel together (and are not an axe murder), I’m likely game.”

“This is for the flights only. In the wake of the breakup I have deferred all further planning for the trip. No hotels, trains or anything have been booked,” he continues.

While Axani’s offer is kind, it has left many wondering why he doesn’t just change the name of his ex’s tickets to something else. The newly single traveler has an answer; Axani says he bought all the flights through discount sites and on a variety of airlines, making changing the tickets nearly impossible.

“My primary concern is just making sure that someone finds a good amount of happiness enjoying the trip,” he says.

To unlock this happiness, being named “Elizabeth Gallagher” isn’t the only condition. Here are the rest of the rules Axani has laid out for applicants:

“1. Be sane, smart and (hopefully) interesting.
2. Have always wanted to travel, but maybe haven’t had the opportunity or cash to see much of the world.
3. Be named Elizabeth Gallagher and have a Canadian passport.
4. Be ready for a rather spontaneous life experience that will, one day, be an epic story that you’ll tell your kids.
5. Pay it forward. I’ve been lucky in life and this is me giving back to the universe. Do something similar someday.”

If you know a lucky “Elizabeth Gallagher” who meets these requirements or happen be to one yourself, you can submit for a place on Axani’s adventure here.
