An overworked waitress gets her dream trip to Italy thanks to one very generous customer.

According to Tumblr blogger Casual Cynic, her mother had been working as a waitress for years and told a customer she had family in Florence and years of art education but had never gotten to Italy.

That's when she was left with a big surprise.

The man left her a $1,000 tip on a $60.42 bill, writing "Your ticket to Italy! Enjoy!"

Casual Cynic wrote her mother. who's been a waitress "for years," had never seen the man before.

He didn't say a word either. He just left the "travel tip" and walked out.
