Hey y'all,

I've decided in the last few days that I'm going to completely go back on everything I've worked for recently and just piss off to Australia.

Australia was never really in my 'to do' list because I've always been so loyal to the states, but I've recently been persuaded by a few people to just go and worry about the rest later.

I don't have a set in stone plan at the moment - my friend's travelling over there in January and then coming home for the Summer in June, so we'll only really have a month together (probably in Melbourne), and by then she would have most likely seen everything, but I'm looking to maybe buy a rusty old 4x4 and drive up the East Coast in June/July before maybe staying in Darwin for a few weeks to enjoy the Sun, and then maybe drive back down again and enjoy the Gold Coast as they go into their Spring/Summer.

I've worked in Fashion for the past few years and currently have 2 small businesses, so do have some plans in mind to start something new, but will also look at doing some bar work in a beach town. I love the look of Byron Bay, but heard it's hard to get work.

Looking for some fellow hippies to dance on the beach with and braid each others hair.

I'm travelling out to oz in June as a solo traveller, looking to do the east coast! Ive never travelled on my own before, however i feel like australia has been calling my name - so after much debating, i just decided to book it and go for it as i have nothing to lose!! Ive booked the oz experience hop on hop off tour so my transport is covered & i have a few trips included like whitsunday island, barrier reef & byron bay surfing lessons... but other than that im completely open minded as to where ill stay & what else ill do!

Im only going on a travelling visa, however i have managed to save enough to keep me going for the three months! Ill be out there for 3 months & im returning to the uk on the 22nd august.
I work in fashion retail & also have my own fashion blog so you sound like the perfect travel buddy haha! :)

If you find its easier to talk on facebook, feel free to add me -

Hannah! xx
