Hey Jess,

I'm flying from Delhi as going to be in SE Asia from June and then India! Where are you flying from? And yes planning on working and travelling so can do everything properly and not have to worry (as much) about the funds! YEs strating the Ultimate Oz on the 14th :) Are you thinking of booking on to that one too?

JaimieLee that trips sounds really good!! I would like to spent a bit longer in each location as got the whole year but as a week trip that sounds ideal, so much included!!1

Ohh I see!! Yes I've just had a look, is it the one that is around $900aud?
It looks fab! but what happens afterwards, do you just sort of see where the wind takes you? Suppose if you meet people then you can just travel around.
Sorry I should learn to read you've already told me 😂😂😂!
So excited, 148 days and counting!!!
Random questions, how many litres is your backpack?
I've been doing lots so research and people are saying 50/60??

Yep it was around that much! A lot of money but its peace of mind and everything included sounds very good! Yeah I reckon so, I think most of the people doing it will also be on a working visa and so in the same
boat!
How long do you think you'll be in Sydney for?
Ahh so excited, that seems like a long time but there is so much to organise!
I'm not sure about the backpack yet as want one that is big enough but also not too much to carry! What are you thinking?

Can I just butt in haha I went around Europe with a 70L backpack and it was a nightmare ! Mine opened both ends but I still ended up pulling everything out to find one tshirt then having to fold it all away again, not to mention that back ache. I'm traveling to SE Asia alone oct and nov then heading to Oz in Dec, excited but nervous. And this time I'm defo taking a suitcase, reckon it will be so much more convenient, Anywhoo just thought I would say from experience haha

Instead of a suitcase, also investigate getting a "travel pack". It's like a (trekking) backpack in that you carry it around on your back (and so still gives you greater mobility, with your hands free, and no problem on dirt/cobblestone/... roads), but it'll have a (heavy duty) zipper (or two) all around, so that it opens up like a suitcase. (Make certain not to get a cheap model with a shitty zipper, though, because if that jams, you're not going to be a happy camper!)
