#3 = delete "on" = He began a journey.
the same? not exactly. #1 and #3 are the beginning only. #2, #5, # 6 = the journey is over and done with. #4 You imagine him somewhere during the journey.
#7  9 are OK
#11 is handing only one thing. #12 you are handing at least 2 things. The rest are nonspecific as to what was handed over.
