Hi everyone!

I'm a Dane backpacking in Oz for a year on a working holiday, and staying in Perth until february whilst working and trying to save up some money.
Staying in Scarborough at a friends house and working there as well.

I'm travelling alone and even though I have one friend here, it gets a bit lonely when you don't know anyone and you're not staying in a hostel.

So, I'm looking for people to join me for a beer, coffee or a movie, surfing lessons or some active one or two day active trips outside of the city.
I'm a 24 year old guy, enjoy walking, trekking, movies and food and wine.
Especially wine is a big interest of mine, so trips to Swan Valley and Margaret River would be great!

Send me a message if you wanna meet up for a coffee and a chat :)

I'm flying in at Christmas and also have a friend in Perth, but I'll be staying in a hostel as her family will be down as well.

I havn't got a set plan yet but when I get there I'm just going to try and find some work and then travel around.. did you find it easy to get a job?

Rachel :)

Hey Rachel!

Yeah, I got a job quite easily. I should say though that getting jobs as a waiter is quite easy, and I have seven years experience and the danish waitering education.

What kind of work are you planning to find when you get here?

Hi Dan and Jens??? not sure who actually has written the top comment. I live in the south west and have just written a blog about a couple of places near where I live. Busselton Jetty and Bunkers Bay western Australia. I will leave a link here but not sure if I am allowed. Anyway lots of work down this way in the wineries and touristy bits and pieces.

I you want to know anything about busso and Dunsborough give us a hoy.

I'm hoping to get work on a fruit farm (or winery thanks Rona). It seems like a good way to meet other travellers. I'm not 100% sure yet just hoping once I'm out there it will be alot easier!
