Hey I will be leaving for Sydney the end of this month and will be landing on January 29th. I would love to chat or maybe meet up in
Sydney whenever you're there. I'm going solo too as I had a friend drop out and really want to meet some people to travel with!

I fly from Gatwick to Perth on 08th January with a years working visa :)
I got the flight for about £500 but its 2 stops and takes like 25 hours

Have you booked? x

Hey! I'm going to be flying out to Perth around 8th March and planning to stay and work there for about 6 months then I hope to travel around to anywhere that I can get to. What are your plans while you're in Perth?

I literally have zero plans at all. I have my years working visa, a flight booked to perth and 4 nights in a hostel
Hopefully find some work in Perth, save for a couple of months then move on.

Whats your plans? x

Oh wow! My brother has lived in Perth for 4 years now so going to be living with him and his friends while I'm there. No plans either really. Just want to work anywhere and travel around once I have some money saved. Have you been to Perth before?

No, never been to Australia! I travelled Thailand for a month, came home to England for 2 weeks for Christmas then fly to Aus for a year on 07th Jan. I'm mega nervous!!

Yeah I am told Perth is good for money, so I want to stay and earn some money there then travel and maybe end up back at Perth for a couple of months before my visa ends x

Wow that's brave! Iv only been for 2 weeks but it's a very cool place with loads to see and do. My brother loves it which is why I've been persuaded to go finally :) def seems to be a good place to earn money, everything is quite expensive though too but I imagine that's the same all over oz which is why the wages are so high!

Yeah I am told its expensive to live but you earn a lot so it sort of weighs itself out. How long you in Perth for?

Yeah its all relative really! I haven't decided. Just planning on going and seeing how it goes. I want to aim for 6 months. Just going to get a one way ticket and see what happens when I get over there but I imagine I will be in Perth for as long as possible.
