While every friend is special, not every name is unique. A group of friends in England had planned a big (free!) weekend vacation in Mallorca, Spain, but when their bro named Joe McGrath had to dropped out, they took to Facebook find another average Joe.

A new friend with the same name is just as sweet.

"Although I had my doubt if the offer was legit, I decided to take the plunge as my legendary boss gave me the time off work," this Joe McGrath wrote on Facebook, "I drove down to Bristol on Saturday night and had a mad three days with complete strangers that I think I can all my good friends."

While the lucky Joe ended up having the time of his life on this surprise vacation, he had no idea what he was in for.

"What a mega group of people! I loved every minute of it," Joe wrote.

Because it sounds too good to be true, people on Twitter were skeptical. Joe McGrath tweeted out a screenshot of his boarding pass to verify the vacation.

Because of the risky nature of taking off with strangers, this Joe McGrath told his "mum" that he knew these guys before the vacation.

"I want to apologise to my mum who thought I knew these people all along," he wrote on Facebook.

If anyone happens to have a friend named Orli Matlow who can't make the big trip, reach out to me because I'm game. Especially if the trip is to Spain.
