Hey everyone!

Been out to Australia a couple times - am lucky to have some cousins dotted about the country. I've been thinking about going over for a working holiday for years and now I've decided I want to do it this year - round about November but am sooo nervous about it!! ( I know I'm lucky enough to have a couple people I know) anyway.. I'm looking at going to adelaide. I want to travel and see all of Australia but I'd probably settle in Adelaide for a few months. Anyone going out to adelaide? Or travelling around first?

Hey Emma

How is the planning going? I'm also looking to go in the new year, but would love to actually be able to head out with people in the same boat.

What's your plans/ intentions?

I'm looking to head out in January next year. I'm just chatting to someone by email from STA to try and get some advice and guidance.

My plan is to head out to China first for a week to see an old friend, before heading to Thailand for 2-3 weeks. I'll then head over to Oz. Start in Melbourne and work my way round. The sooner I can find work the better :)
