Travelling was always something Peter had wanted to do and as he got older he began to plan. He decided that he must leave his home in Asia to get a good sense of the world. He thought that he should probably try and visit each continent. He sat down in front of his laptop and listed the continents: Oceania, Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica. Some of the continents he knew, but he was shocked to see that the closest continent he could visit was Africa. He had thought that it was a long way away.
It looked like planning this would be fun. When he looked at different maps of the world it turned out that there were different quantities and names of the continents which confused him a lot. Before he continued he asked his father's advice about how many continents there were. His father told him that for them, in their schools, they were taught that there were 7 continents. And although some other countries taught that there were 6 or 5, and that he should stick to what he understood for this project of his.
For the purpose of travel, Peter decided that he would use the system he knew, and this meant he would have to visit 6 more continents. He looked at the maps of the world and decided that he could go and visit his uncle in Africa and then his sister and her family in Europe really easily. He took this idea to his father who agreed with him although he thought it would be simpler to go east to Oceania. Peter knew that this was just because Oceania was where his father had always wanted to go because his brother lived there.
