“Lone female travelling & working East coast Australia Advice”
I would like to ask a few questions as a 'non-traveller'. I have taken a career break from my job which ends in begins in Decmeber 2014. It my initial plan to fly out to Thailand for Xmas & New Year to meet my sister who will have been travelling since June. Unlike me she is travelling with a friend. Hence why Thailand isnt so much of a daunting thought. However after this we shall fly back to Australia alone. Here I plan to travel most of the following 5 motnhs alone. I will also be working for at least 3 of these months because i will need to continue saving for my future travels. I would definitly like to cover Melboune, Brisbane and probably the main parts of the East Coast. I will fly back to the UK in May 2015 where I will then fly out to Nashville for a 3 week holiday Ive already had planned with a best friend.
Id just like some initial advice on travelling solo on the East coast of Oz - the best cities to pick up workAlthough I have a career I am restricted too now, my previous employment was in Bars/ restaurants and a lot of customer service retail assistants. I feel this may be the best area suited to work whilst out there. I will get a working visa, and initially for this period hope to have around £7000.Travelling alone doesn’t really bother me. I am used to starting afresh in new cities as a solo traveller in the UK with my work, and enjoy the feeling of a new city, meeting new friends and re-discovering new places. Its more the cost of the travels and the experience of solo-travellers finding work etc I would like.
