Hi guys

I am a 26 year old male factory manager that's ready to quit my boring job and see the world, Im out going, friendly, loyal to people unless they give me reason not to be and up for a mega time. Currently I will be setting off from the UK alone on what I hope will be a trip of a life time, It would be great to not start my trip alone. I Will be leaving in 4-6 months with the hope of going to either Asia or Australia 1st. This does not have to be the starting point if circumstance benefit otherwise. I want to travel the world and would happily start in another destination. When I go I have no intention of returning and will bounce from country to country when my time is done in the place im staying. Is there anybody in a similar situation that's looking to meet with a travelling buddy for part or all of the adventures to come.?

Regards

Hi Jay

I am off to Oz in June 2015. Going to start off with a tour for 2 weeks, I think up the East Coast. Where in Oz do you want to start if you go there first?

Regards

Cat

HI Cat

If I was to start off in OZ it would definitely be the east cost. Would you be staying in OZ for more then 2 weeks? I would probably work and travel in OZ mainly due to the high cost of living. Is that something you would be looking at doing as well?

Regards

Jay

Hi Jay

Yeah i have a WHV for a year so I plan on just relaxing and seeing some sights for the first few weeks up the East Coast and then probably head back down to find work in or near Sydney somewhere after that and set up camp basically.

Hiya

You got your visa yet and when you going to book flights?

No not got anything booked yet, I've had a chat with the visa people n they have said that it will take 1 month to process. I guess flights can be booked anytime. Have you got anything done yet?

I have my visa through the Aus Government immigration website. It only took a day to process but it all depends on the time of year.

I am booking flights in the next month i reckon - there are some really good prices through STA travel with Emirates which are bookable until the end of March

Wow, yeah, a month seems extraordrinarily long. People talk of hours until approval. Unless of course you're not applying for a WHV ? Or maybe very special circumstances? I would double check that to make sure.

Ok cool I will look into it, I have used STA travel before so will book with them anyway. You will have to let me know some dates when u have it sorted see if we can get linked up.
