Seve Gat is a woman in Kenya who wanted so badly to visit China, she (badly) Photoshopped pictures of what her dream vacation would look like. After her awkward "vacation" photos went viral (see below), a Nairobi businessman, Sam Gichuru, was so moved by the charmingly terrible pictures that he raised enough money to send Gat to China for real.

She first edited herself in front of a plane to announce her "departure."

I have left the country to china

And then she "explored" various Chinese landmarks.

China... Nice place indeed. 的中文翻譯 | 英漢字典

Gat met her Gichuru—her Fairy Godfather—and wrote, "I promise not to let him and you guys down. Thank you all for supporting me, Looking forward to going to China. God bless you all !"

The Internet loved this story of social media making dreams come true, and started taking Gat on other fantasy vacations via Photoshop.

This worked for Gat—so be prepared to see a lot of engaged couples copying-and-pasting themselves onto Honeymoon beaches.
