Hi! I’m Fionn and 21 from the UK and I’m looking at travelling to Australia in September 2016 after I graduate from university. I’ll be travelling alone and I’m quite nervous about it all!
I’ve never travelled alone nor worked abroad and would be grateful for any advice/recommendations from people who have done it or anyone going around the same time who wants to chat about their trip - I’d be really grateful as I’m excited but sooooo nervous haha
I’m Alex, one of the managers here at Gapyear.com. Great to hear you’re planning on heading out to Australia this Autumn, what a graduation present to yourself!
Travelling alone can be a daunting thing for anyone to do, so it’s always good to speak to people who have been in the same boat as you to give you a hand and make the whole experience easier (and ultimately more exciting) for you! I have spent quite a bit of time out in Australia myself, and having done a huge round the world trip by myself a while ago would love to help you out and give you some advice on what to do, where to go, and how to plan and organise the trip!
If you have a chance would you be able to give me a call on 0208 865 0774 and we can have a chat about your plans and start getting things sorted for you for your amazing Australian Adventure!
Hey Fionn! I’m planning on travelling Australia too in September! I’m doing Camp America and then flying there and was thinking of doing STA’s work Australia package, dunno if you’ve looked at anything like that? I’m going on my own too so I’m just as nervous haha
I’m hoping to go over alone in September as well and im so nervous! I don’t even know where to start with planning or anything..
Hi!! I’ve booked my flight to Sydney leaving the start of September. Would be good to get to know a few people before I leave. Mega excited but quite nervous as well!
Im also planning on going travelling to Australia for several months in september, would be good to talk to people who are doing something similar
I’m planning to go Australia at the end of September for 6months - 1yr.
I have no idea where to start. No idea where to go and no ideas where to go.
I am hoping there is people that are as clueless as me about going to Australia?!!
I have just booked my flight to Sydney the second week in September, also heading out there alone on a working visa! Nothing planned as of yet!!
