Thanks it's all a bit stressful trying to plan everything i m just worried about finding a job as I will probably need one more or less straight away and without a company helping you its a bit daunting. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Well I mentioned before in either this post or a different one, I can suggest a place that I worked at in Sydney that's great pay and working hours. And I'm always happy to give any advice, just PM me

I'll be arriving in Sydney in April, no real plans as yet but decided it was now or never as I turn 30 later in the year! Finding it useful reading everyone's tips! X

There are so many paths and none of them wrong.. and in a place like OZ... one of the most important things that comes into play is : what do I want out of this 'experience'. Its not meant to be a serious question.. simply a directional tool... and in such a huge place.. with so much land... and different eco-systems... you have nothing but.. variety.
-snip- My first year I really didnt get too much out of it.. After that the doors really started to open... and now 7 years travelling more doors are starting to open again after a little lull in 'progression'. Anyhow.. I wanted to help in my way.. the way I could.. to give a bit of 'advice' from the position of Hindesight. lol.
Anyway.. hope you like it. there is more to come for sure... a lot more. take care and good luck. buen camino.

Hey hey

I am 28, taking a 4 month career break and travelling solo for 2/3 weeks down East Coast of Oz (Cairns - Sydney) then over to NZ to travel both islands for 3 weeks.... Have you made any plans yet? Give me a shout if you need a travel buddy, even to get started, its my first time solo but I cannot wait!

Nikita :-)
