lucky bastard, one of my biggest regrets is never studying abroad. it'll provide a cascade of experiences you won't get just backpacking and slumming it with the masses. where in aus are you gonna be? that'll play a pretty big part. ALL of southeast asia is a must-see. assuming you'll do mainland SEA (indonesia and parts of malaysia are pretty far-flung) you can very easily hit thailand, burma, laos, cambodia, and vietnam if you've got the time. expenses are minimal. i won't suck up a pictures thread with travel advice, but when the times comes, start a thread in the lounge and i'll be happy to dump ideas into it.

 

oh yeah and if you have ideas on how to travel and find a legit job that lets you travel TELL ME IMMEDIATELY. lol

 

edit: for the past couple years my strategy has been to save up extra cash (you could work an extra day a week, or sock away 10 bucks a week, or something) so that when it comes time to travel i pretty much have my airfare covered. i bartend (a lot) and i save my change and the odd one-dollar-bills that i can't change out for higher denominations, and don't consider them income. i paid for roundtrip tickets to peru in 2011, ecuador in 2012, peru again in 2013 and one to uruguay, and if all goes well i'll have a "free" ride to england this summer, possibly indonesia in december if i have a good fall season at work. and on that note, try traveling over the summer when you're on break (though it'll generally be more expensive unless you fly to the southern hemisphere where it's winter) and in december (where it's generally the cheapest time to fly, and you'll be out of school.)

 

I'm gonna be in Sydney. I already plan on doing the eastern coast of Australia, heading down to NZ, and hopefully getting all around SE Asian. I have a good friend that will be studying in China at the same time, so when the semester ends, I might fly up there are then we can work our way down together.

 

And that's awesome. I wish I could do something like that, and maybe some day I will. I'll be coming out of school with a degree in both geography (focus in human/cultural geography) and international relations (focus in national/international defense and security), so I sincerely hope I can find some sort of job that pushes me to travel as much as possible. I've also though about joining the peace corps or working for a non-profit or NGO right out of school for a couple of years before potentially going back for grad school or finding a governmental job. I dunno though, I guess I have time.

 

Why England this summer? Compared to almost anywhere else in the world, wouldn't you consider that quite unexciting?

awesome! start a thread at that point and i'll brain dump into it.

 

i've never been to europe and i've always wanted to go to scotland, so i intend to do a lot of trekking in the kilgorns, and it'll be an opportunity to take some time to finish up that goddamn book, finally, and plus i'm probably meeting a buddy in germany afterwards and backpacking germany/austria for a week or two, and i've always wanted to go there as well.

 

i will slake my thirst for adventure this december when i wander the far-flung islands of the indonesian archipelago, tracing 19th-century british naturalist alfred russel wallace's footsteps in my own quest to the mysterious aru islands, in search of feathers from the legendary bird of paradise

I find Europe boring, but maybe that's just me. I'm gonna join you in Indonesia though. Just gonna parachute outta the sky and be like "Sup PhillyB?"

    • Teddy was good in college, so much so that I remember a few Huddlers mentioning "tanking for Teddy" the season before he came out. And, it's not like his winning ways haven't translated to the NFL, regardless of whether someone believes he only did it because he had a good team surrounding him. At some point, one really has to concede that you're not going to take a trash team to the playoffs, regardless of who you are. Unlike Trent Dilfer who simply didn't have to do much, Bridgewater actually had to win a few games. His defenses were very good, but they weren't historical. But, I can understand why you'd think of Teddy as a game manager. That's not necessarily a bad thing in all cases. We almost one a Super Bowl with a glorified game manager (and Delhomme was one in my opinion), but this brings me to the next point, which is sometimes that has a lot to do with the HC's and OC's philosophy as well.  I have questions about Teddy, believe me. But I have less questions about his ability to get some wins than whether or not his decidedly small frame can hold up to the rigors of the NFL. I mean, he really had a catastrophic injury. If he hadn't his career just might be on full showcase as opposed to a reclamation project. I'm not going to count it against him because he played on decent defensive teams, including one as a rookie, but then got hurt in the third year when many QBs show marked improvement and start putting it all together. If anything, he didn't have to be as proficient or efficient as he was, particularly in his sophomore season, considering the relatively little experience that he had. The other two seasons were pretty much throwaways where he didn't get any credible playing time and rehabbing both physically and mentally, and people not really believing that he could resume any semblance of success (which probably had to do moreso with his injury than anything else). Bottom line: He took the reigns and stayed the course for one of the best in NFL history. So, yeah, I'm not sure he can get us to where we want to ultimately go, but if he stays healthy, I wouldn't bet against him. His career is the epitome of disjointed, but injuries do that to even the Cam Newtons and Andrew Lucks of the league who had considerably more time at the helm.  This year (or next) will tell us a lot.  
    • The thought is that the upper end QB's in this upcoming class are "safer" bets. Even after Lawrence and Fields it does actually look like a strong QB class, depending on who declares.
    • Not sure if you mean Trubisky, Darnell, Mayfield or Murray here?  Point being even if we manage a tanking, it is a coin flip at best.
