1 Ticket to go with collaboration

Hi

As of 12:45pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) i have completely paid off the most important airfare of them all.  Sydney to Buenos Aires. With that ticket I will officially be able to begin the journey.

I also got thinking during the day about the whole plagiarism thing at uni, and the relevance to Engineering students. As an engineering student very often we are encouraged to work on assignments together to be able to get the final answer as it is a way to prepare us for a group work environment in our post graduation lives.  Which has me thinking, what happens if we get in trouble for plagiarism in one of our assignments with a fellow classmate? Will the we were collaborating mind set work against the academics?

Just a little thought,

If people start to read this would you like to comment with thoughts on the “collaboration” topic?

A change of plans

Hello again,

now as some of you would know I am in the process of planning an international journey of epic proportions, and when i say epic i don’t mean as epic as Star Wars as that is set over some huge distances with light speed travel and i would not be able to compete with a journey that large until at least shortly after the 3rd world war, in 2063 when Zefram Cochrane  makes the first warp drive and makes contact with the volcans for the first time.  Yes i did just combine the two best sci-fi franchises together to make one super story.

But back to the point, i have received an email informing me that QANTAS has changed their mind due to the fluctuating dollar and want me to pay off my Sydney to Buenos Aires leg by monday next week.  Therefore i have been forced into moving into the next step of the planning and purchasing process by an uncontrollable corporation.

I’m off again, got study and uni again tomorrow, but at least we are going to have a big breakfast at mummadukes to celebrate the end of a semesters classes =)

May the force live long and prosper with you.

Hello world!

As none of you will know as this is my first post i am currently in the planning and payment stages of a journey that some could say is bigger than Ben Hur as Ben Hur was only the size of an average man, unless they are talking about the film and that was quiet large.  But in no way is it larger than a journey spanning a possible 5 continents over the time span of 6 months.  The inital plan is to go south america, north america, europe, morocco  (therefore africa) and on the way home get a stop over in asia somewhere. if i can get out of the airport and get a stamp that would be even better!

As of this morning at approximately  10:30am Australian eastern standard time i have a fully paid airfare from New York JFK to London Heathrow Via Iceland.

Yes i am travelling to the eye of the storm as many travellers would believe after being stranded for a number of days but i don’t believe that is a good enough reason to not travel to one of the most amazing places on earth. They still don’t have last names! An Icelandic person will be known as [insert firstname] {son of fathers name} yes that is Lord of the Rings “shit” right there!

I must head off as i have Uni in the morning but i hope to make regular updates of how the developments are going with the journey and anything else that could be of interest to readers.

Much love, Pepito!
