Hi All!
Just booked my flights! It all seems a little real now!
Manchester to Sydney, arriving 14th September.
I'm just wanting to chat to people with a simalar time scale who are also travelling solo!
Or infact anybody that wants to discuss travel plans of any kind? (as of yet I have non!!)

Awesome, im not heading until 2016 so not in a similar time frame at all but what are you looking to do? Are you going for work or a holiday?

Heading over in beginning of October. If your still about in Sydney, maybe we can organise some stuff to do if your interested. I want to do some tours so I can meet some new people. Only in aus for a month but debating staying on after that one month πŸ™ŠπŸ‘Œ do you know/are you booking yours onto any good trips? Xx

Hi all!!
Emily I bet you stay on after a month πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ.
I think I'm just literally going to go with the flow, I haven't made any plans! I just want to meet people and make new friends and loads of memories!
I'd love to make contacts before I go so I have some comfort when I am at the other side of the world.
How do you feel about going it alone!?

Me and a friend heading over in mid September too from Ireland, just going with the flow too hoping to get a few people together.. Did you book a flexible return flight or a single?

Hey I'm also arriving on the 14th September alone!! I've booked a week with ultimate Oz but nothing else! Are you planning on working and travelling or just travelling? X

I arrive at a similar time. Flying Heathrow to Sydney on Sept 20th alone, I've not booked a thing apart from 3 nights stay at Wake Up hostel when I arrive, but planning on working in Sydney for 6 months then traveling up the east coast!

Hi Soph!
Yes I am planning on travelling and working, don't think my budget will cover the full year haha!! Are you planning on the same?
Where are you flying from?
What do you get with the Ultimate Oz thing entail?
Jamhop; I wasn't sure what Hostel to book in to, wake up or bounce maybe? Decisions!!!!

The oz experience has been recommended to me too so I might do that for a week. It includes
Hop-on-hop-off travel Sydney < > Cairns
Surf lesson in Byron Bay
2 night Fraser Island tour
1 night Whitsunday Sailing trip
1 night Magnetic Island package
Atherton Tablelands day trip
Great Barrier Reef day trip

Seems quite good to me and a good way to meet other people β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘Œ what do you guys think?

Do you mind telling me how much you paid? I'm going to have a little look online!!
Where are you flying from Soph?
Are you going on the 14th to do the Ultimate Oz?
I Agree I think it's an awesome way of meeting people!
JaimieLee; I've booked a single, leaving some money with the family in case I need an emergency flight home, the flexible return flights were so so expensive!!
