Hey my names Lauren-Ashley, most people call me Lauren!
I'm a 23 year old female from Manchester & decided in May 2014 that I'm bored of my job and want to do something interesting. I decided on a whim to book an open return ticket Manchester to Sydney with a stop over in Dubai for 1 night (to catch a few zzzz's).
I'm hoping to come across a few like minded people that are in the same boat and are travelling around the same time of month as me. I'm extremely excited, but understandably feeling a little apprehensive.

Please reply ????

Hi Chloe Jay, that's amazing. Which hotel are you residing at out of curiosity?
I haven't got many plans to be frank, I know I have booked 7 nights accommodation at a hostel called Base X. Then an excursion called cruise like a local haha. After then I was hoping to get out of Sydney as it's extremely expensive and maybe head back for new year Christmas time. I'm very open minded and happy travelling where my feet take me ?

Awesome! 30th November happens to be my birthday. I'm happy to keep in contact prior to travelling and see where you happen to be nearer the time and meet up?
What's your plan of action when out there? Any plans in particular?

Hi Maria
You are going to Thailand on your own for a month? Now that's got to be scarier than going to Australia alone surely? Good luck with that, i'm sure you'll have an amazing time, be safe! So you'll be in Sydney at the same time as me? Awesome, maybe we could meet up if you would like? I'm staying at Base X for 7 nights from the 5th November. That's all I've really booked as i'm not sure whether after realizing how expensive Sydney is when i arrive, whether i'll want to stay longer - if i do i'll book an odd night here and there at another hostel is Base X can't have me. I just don't want to book too far in advance in case my plans or frame of mind changes.

How did you manage to sort a flat share? That sounds interesting, providing you want to stay in Sydney of course for a long time? What are your plans when you arrive in Sydney?

My initial thought for when i arrive is, my birthday is on the 30th November (i don't want to celebrate it alone lol) then, Christmas (i don't want to celebrate that alone) then NYE! (i don't want to celebrate that on my own) haha. So i have nothing planned for those dates as yet do you?

Speak soon :)

I'm going to stay in a hostel in Brisbane for a few weeks and sort everything out, visit the Gold Coast and probably do Sydney for new year!
