Hi, my name is Cheryl. I'm 29 I have a sabbatical to take this Summer, so I'm off travelling round Australia between July 10th until I decide to come back to the UK or go to America to visit my friend. I'm travelling from Manchester airport. I'm going to be travelling alone not sure where I'm heading at first, thinking either Cairns or Sydney. If any other people are travelling around the same time let me know would be good to meet up! Speak soon ;)

Hi Dan, I'll do any work really...I'd like to have a go at fruit picking, maybe bar work...I'm not fussy really. My main worry is going it alone but I'm excited too! How you feeling about going on your own? How long you planning to stay? Melanie
