Tom Frankenburg had the perfect romantic getaway planned: a $1,600 vacation to Malta, including a room at a four-star hotel with sunny views of the Mediterranean. He bought the tickets and made all the reservations.

Then, as happens sometimes, Frankenburg and his girlfriend broke up. The dream vacation was gone.

But rather than mope around Malta all by his lonesome, the heartbroken Nottingham, England resident had a better idea: give away the entire vacation for free. Frankenburg publicized the plan with a slick YouTube video.
