Hey guys, I have a personal project to be presented to the class on the third week of December. My project will be about planning a big trip for a year and I'm going to make plans about it like how you guys do it.
First I need to know where I want to go, when I want to go, how long do I plan to stay, the cost per month, the airline cost, accomodation cost, etc. I will need help from you guys. I'm going to start making plans for my project this Friday of different steps I'll take. I need someone who has done a world trip many times before or just beginner and I need to pm you guys from time to time but don't know who though... Anyone volunteer to help me out ? =D It will help me plan my future trip too since it's something I like and plan to do in the future.
Planning a trip in a project sense can be very useful indeed. You might consider planning not only for your trip but how you gather finances and any preparation you do. Not only that but you can carry out a pretty meaningful risk analysis on overseas travel.
Things like getting sick and loosing all your stuff can be put into a risk analysis and then you can come up with controls like injections and insurance to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. Showing a risk analysis like this to some of your more risk averse classmates might also convince some people that travelling really isnt going to kill you if you put in a bit of though as to how to minimise the chance of being caught in a really critical spot.
Wow that really boring project manager speak for you there. I sound like my dad! Crap!!
I can help you out with the project management type jargon and stuff but I havent planned (or been on) my own trip yet so i cant really help with cost, time and itinerary.
Good luck with your preso and trip planning!

Hey Whitehead! That's a good idea!! I'm going to make plans starting this Friday but I'll need some contacts with people with experiences and no expenriences to get do my project, since it's pretty big and interesting, I'm going to make sure I'll visit the insurance places, airport,etc. to get know the most of it. My project will be about planning the big around the world trip for a year... Oh also, it's 365 days not 360 days hehe XD
PM me if you think I can help with anything.
