Hi all smile

Im 26 and i think its about time i get my act together and plan my trip to oz. Ive been putting it off soo long because im terrified to plan a trip and travel alone, it seems very daunting and if i dont book something or get some sort of plan ill forget the whole thing and regret it for the rest of my life haha, dont want that to happen! eekkk..

Im thinking may/ june 2011 i know its agessss away but i need to have it booked to start some serious saving!!!! id like to travel a couple weeks thailand, east coast oz and then settle into my working visa for the remander few months of my working visa and do something fun on the way home!

anyway if you’re interested in the same sort of plan or time jezz a shout smile

Hi smile

I’m in exactly the same boat as you! I’m 26, have always wanted to go travelling but I’ve let other things and people hold me back and now I’m thinking I’ve just gotta do it…even if that means on my own!!! So scary though.

I really want to go to Australia and fancy being in Sydney for Christmas/New Year next year (I’d imagine like 99% of travellers!) and want to travel up and down the east coast.

I’ve only just started thinking about it again so haven’t decided on any details really, need to do some research lol!

Keep me posted on your plans, would love to have someone to go with properly, even if its just to start off with to take the edge off!! xx

Hey everyone,
Just came across your messages and sounds like we’re all thinking the same thing!  I almost went to Australia last year but last minute nerves about going alone made me change my mind…and Ive regretted it ever since!!
So I’m planning it again and definately not backing out this time!
I’m 24 years old and hoping to travel June’ish next year, would love to make some friends before I leave so that going alone might seem a little less scary!
Look forward to hearing from you
Lauren x

Hey, my names Bekkha, I’m 21 and planning Oz, woop! That’s about as far as I’ve got currently, other than I know i want to be there in Sept 11.
Christmas in the sun? I’m up for that!
Going with people would be great, and advice on where the hell to start with an entire country would be much appreciated. Just finished my degree and sooo don’t want a proper job right now, so off to see the world i go instead smile
I’m thinking Thailand ... New Zealand ... Canada ... At some point. I’m not far on my plans, as i’m sure has become ever so obvious by now xx

Hi guys,

I’m 20 and I have always wanted to go travelling also. Recently Aus has really caught my eye and i’m REALLY looking into going next year. I’m not sure when I am going to go… probably around August/September next year so that I have plenty of time to save!! I want to work over there for at least 3 months, but i’d try and stay as long as I could, i’m sure I won’t wanna go home!

It would be really nice to meet a few people who feel the same so message me guys! smile

Hey all,
I’m heading out to the land of Oz in september next year and would be great to find others that are heading out there around the same time to meet up with and share some the fun with.

I’ll be working out there and planning on staying in Sydney up until the new year, house sharing would be a cheaper option if anyone is interested?

Hey all,

Looks like you are all doing similar to myself. I’ll be in Melbourne from 22nd Sept 2011 and will be spending about 8 months travelling and working up the East Coast.

If anyone is interest in meeting up and working and travelling then feel free to message me, thanks x
