We have a mini Palin here by GTrotter on 3 November 2005 4:22pm
 
This chap has taken upon himself to setup a website to ask people to donate and help him travel around the world!

http://www.paymyway.co.uk

Got to admire the cheekyness of it, I guess...
He has even set-up an ebay auction with himself on it (how I originally came by the link) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&;rd=1&item=6009540038&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT

lol.
Its an interesting take on it anyhow.
on his "about me" page theres a short bit about Palin also!!
Whatever next!!! lol

I disagree. I got the link from aardvark travel forums http://www.aardvarktravel.net/chat/ and the chap himself is posting there. Seems like a genuine guy.

Also with paypal when you pay them money you automatically know their address and such. So its safe regards that. If you see what else he has got for sale on ebay....I think he geniunely wants to do this lol.

Regardless of what it is, I'm not donating. lol
 
Re: We have a mini Palin here by Sophie-Louise on 3 November 2005 8:15pm
 
but why should we give him money?! lol... i want to travel i don't go round begging!

if you want something in life badly enough you have to work/save for it. i am saving fo rmy travels, even if it's only about £10 a week, it's something and it's MINE and i haven't begged for any of it. i'm a student too! don't even have a job!

If he's selling stuff through e-bay to make travelling money then good luck to him. Someone recently sold a tatty old tent worth a fiver for about £250 recently. I do disagree with asking for donations from strangers to fund non charitable activities.

Cheekiness happens everywhere. In the shopping complex where my Toastmasters club and entrepreneurs group meets, this man was selling his poems. Five dollars for one for three you could pay $10.

yeah, i think the ebay thing is good, just not the begging!i spose poems is like selling art though and if they are good then why not! good idea!
