I'm 24 and from the UK and was thinking of travelling for roughly 3 months in September. So far I thought of travelling to Toronto, then down to LA, San Francisco, Miami, then back up to New York for Christmas time. As I will be travelling alone I am abit nervous but excited! But I have also heard travelling to Australia/New Zealand is more convenient for a traveller? Can I have your opinions on the places, money (In £ if possible) and the kind of advice you have for travelling alone. Plus if there's anyone going travelling to any of these places feel free to let me know as I love meeting new people and would be nice to do it with other! Thank-you! X
What kind of budget are you planning on? You're going to some potentially very expensive destinations that are really far apart...
Well after reading up on more info, even tho I wasnt planning on doing so. Im thinking of working in Australia for roughly 6 months... ill obvs have the 5000aus in the bank plus save more money after flights and get my Visa etc..and go through the Intro but I would also like to travel other places so maybe work away for 6 months then move on after saving more money. Still would love to go to New York for at least a week at xmas time as soo many people recommend it!
Good luck with your budget and finding work.
Thanks...would you recommend i save more money for Aus?
A job will help of course, but absolutely you'll need a pile more money for a 6 month stay. Most "normal" backpackers will blow through $5,000 in their first two months and that's living frugally.
My first thought is why waste a once-in-a-lifetime visa on a 6 month trip? If you want to work your way around the world, stopping for only several months at a time, consider doing this in other countries and save the Australian WHV for a time when you can spend the whole year (or two) there.
How long could you travel for with work/family/study or other commitments taken into account? How much money could you feasibly save before travelling? Your answers will help you determine what kind of trip may suit your circumstances.
I work in a private nursery so I have to quit. I moved back home and literally have no commitments hense going to Australia. I have now planned a trip with more people and will be going for a longer period but abit later on so I can save more money.
Nice! The sky's the limit then. Hit the road and keep on going
