Hey Sam,
Not sure, meeting someone when I get there and just go from there. Not set anything in stone but have 3 months to travel Oz

Sounds awesome!!

Two weeks today and I'll be heading off, still don't have a clue what to pack. Going by the advice on the forum I should aim to take the minimum....

I found out today that nationwide have a current account (plus i think) that waivers any oversees card charges just in case anyone is panicing like I was.

Hi Tom,
I will be traveling the Gold Coast but don't know when I'll be travelling where. Where do you start from? Have you got a working visa? Have you booked any where to stay?

Amber, where are you starting first? Yeah I'm the same, I'm gunna chill out for a little bit and then work when I need to, I'm just going to enjoy my time out there rather than stress! Well I plan on going for a year and then see where it leads. Have you booked any places to stay at all??

I literally have no idea what to do when I get to Brisbane! Because the plans have changed I'm really unorganised now and need to sort something! I haven't but I've seen something in Sydney I was thinking of doing its called Ozintro or something for a week? Looks expensive though just want to meet some people I'm nervous on my own haha.

Well first things first I would find somewhere to stay! But we should cross paths at some point so we should defiantly meet!
Yeah I have seen that, not sure what to think of it as I want to be able to do my own thing when I please but I'm the same as you and because I'm going alone I really wanna make friends! I've heard a lot of people say that hostels are the best place to meet people. I thought I would take advice from people who are there already than maybe people trying to sell me things. Have you got your packing sorted? Your off so soon!
