Hey! I'm off to New Zealand, Oz and up to South East Asia, leaving 25/04/2016.
I'm an in-my-twenties female travelling alone for the first time - if anyone is in a similar situation please get back to me - would be reassuring to chat with someone in the same boat as me!

Hello Ellie!

I did backpacking in Australia a few years ago. I just want to give you some support;) If you are not finding anyone also travelling solo before, trust me you will get a lot a lot of new people there travelling solo. It will be easy for you to get to know some new people and find travel companions.

Good luck and have fun:)

Im a mid-twenties female travelling solo to Australia on a working holiday visa and Im so nervous about going on my own too! Everyone keeps telling me that its easy to meet people but its still really scary!

Im flying to Cairns first mid June, where are you starting off?

Hi guys! I'm another female solo traveller. I'm starting off a bit later, doing Southeast Asia June until start of September when I land in Perth. Looking to find some work then make my way around the rest of the country! Pretty nervous but it's a good nervous I think!
Would be great to speak to some people in the same boat! Alice x
