Hi Hannah, I arrive in sydney 22nd of May, can't believe how quick it's all coming round! Are you planning on working too?

Hi Eddie, sounds like you got a good plan!! I'm planning to start off in sydney than maybe work my way round the east coast, but I'm just gonna go with the flow more than anything, I wouldn't mind doing New Zealand and Asia after either but just going to see how it all goes really!. With regards to money I hope to take around maybe $7000 australian dollars but I do plan to work as well

Ah okay sounds good :) Yeah I'm going on my own too! I think there's so many people in the same boat that it makes it a little less daunting! But Yeah I've already booked my first few nights, there's so many hostels to choose from, I booked mine through which were pretty good :)

I leave in about 6 weeks eddie, it's coming round quick! I'm exactly the same really, it's hard to plan especially if your travelling by yourself, but best thing you can do is just pack your bags and go for it! And thanks very much mate hope all works out good for you too!
