Im a wee bit worried as Im going out on my own and even though everyone says I'll meet loads of people I haev nightmares of being stuck on my own for the full year!! (lol I know paranoid much but..) Any wee tips would be cool.

Hi Jillian,

I travelled in Australia on my own for three months and let me reasure you, I wasn't lonely for a single day ;)! At some point I even needed some time off and decided to go a different direction than the people I was travelling with at the time... And especially because of the fact that you're working you should have no problems getting to know the friendly Aussies. I'm sure you'll have a brilliant time.
Enjoy yourself,

Sydney is a fab city and you won't have any trouble meeting people and having fun.
