How do people!

so I have booked my flight to Melbourne just over a week ago for the 9th of September on my billy tod, excited...but understandably nervous 😁 hopefully looking to find work over there while I'm on travels but don't know what to expect as its my first time. But just shouting out to say if anyone else is doing anything similar? Be good to hear from someone if so :)

I'm traveling from Salt Lake City Utah to grant Pass Oregon google tells me to take i-80 to highway 140 but I have family telling me to go from Salt Lake City to Sacramento California up to grab Pass Oregon but I think that will take longer any advice?

Hey, I'm arriving in Melbourne mid September too, I've booked a hostel for a week & don't have much plans apart from hunting jobs as I'd like to work first & raise cash before touring the rest of Australia.

Private message me if you'd like to meet up or add each other on Facebook :)

Hey everyone,

I'm arriving in Melbourne on the 8th with a week booked in a hostel as well. Looking for a place and work for about 6 months then on to travel the rest of Australia.

I'm open to meeting up once there as well. PM me for my fb if you're interested!
