A woman from Texas is currently traveling around Ireland with a stranger who has the same name as her ex-boyfriend, and her new boyfriend. Quite the vacation!
Laura Hall had booked the vacation to tour Northern Ireland for her ex-boyfriend, while they were still together. She and her ex are avid “Game of Thrones” fans. Sadly, the pair split up before the vacation, but this didn’t deter Hall.
Determined not to let the tickets go to waste she decided to invite a stranger with the same name as her ex to join her on their dream holiday. Not only that but she was giving another diehard “GoT” fan a chance to experience the Ultimate "Game of Thrones" tour.
Hall told Dermy Tours, on YouTube, “We bought the tickets and had only been dating for two months, but of course we broke up two months later because I get bored easily.
“Anyway, I was left with this extra ticket which is non-refundable and also non-transferable.
“I decided I wasn’t going to let it go to waste. So I went on Facebook and searched for my ex-boyfriend’s name, Nathan Bayless. I found six living in America and one living in Austin.
“So I sent him a message saying ‘Hey I’ve got this extra ticket, your name is Nathan Bayless, I broke up with my Nathan Bayless, do you want to come to Ireland?’”
Apparently Bayless responded with a little trepidation but eventually said yes. He’s currently traveling around Ireland with Hall and her new Irish boyfriend, Taylor.
Bayless said, “When she asked me I was like ‘Yes absolutely, can we chat about this for a second?’ So here we are.”
This video just shows what a great time they’re having. The poor auld original Nathan Bayless!
