Let me Upgrade U.

Posted on

Baylee Woodward is a 19-year-old who has had a pretty cool past year. She has spent most of her time traveling after getting a job working on a yacht.

Baylee told BuzzFeed News that she has been to 12 countries during her travels, mostly islands in the Caribbean.

Of course, her adventurous lifestyle means she has a pretty epic Instagram and many amazing photos. Most of them featured her ex-boyfriend, who was her travel partner.

Unfortunately, the relationship recently came to a messy end. She said her boyfriend was also her boss on the yacht, and fired her from her job.

"The breakup was rough because he was my travel partner for a year, we were together literally 24/7, and then he just fired me out of nowhere," she said.

Another unfortunate aspect of her breakup was that her ex was featured in many of the amazing photos from her travels. However, Baylee has come up with an amazing trick to keep sharing the pictures...can you spot it?


Baylee made a few minor tweaks to the photos, so she could keep sharing them on social media. She cut and pasted Zac Efron's head on her ex's, and honestly, the pics look great.

Baylee said she decided to make the ~improvements~ so she could "look back at pictures and laugh at this whole situation."

"I wanted to post a throwback picture from one of the trips but the best ones are with him in it," she said. "I couldn't crop him out and blurring him would be ugly, so I was like, 'I'll just put someone else's face on it.' And when you think 'hot young guy' you think Zac Efron."

Baylee said she isn't trying to be "petty," because she knows her ex doesn't care. "It was just so I could still post cute pictures and people not think we're back together," she said.

She added: "I didn't want to be childish, but I know he won't take it that way because he knows me."

Baylee shared the photos on a Facebook group and her personal page, where they have gotten thousands of likes.

Baylee said most of the messages have been from people saying her idea was genius.

"I love how much support I've gotten," she said.

She said she is now on the hunt for her next adventure.

"I just got a job on a yacht, and after that I plan on traveling to Europe and Asia for a few months if I can find a new travel partner," she said.
