gemg has indicated that this thread is about Australia

hey all, i'm a 19 year old from good ol' England who's interested in going on a working hol 2 Austrailia but am nervous to go alone.

I intend on going sometime in '06 and wondering if any1 else was going and would be interested in a travel companion??

i havent chosen when yet as i'm still lookin for someone to travel with but am pretty flexible.
could any1 offer word of support for a first time traveller?

If anyone is interested in accompanying me please leave a message!!!!
thanks
Gemma

Heya Gem,

Well, first off, there'll be tons of others going by themselves, so that is actually one of those worries that fades away the moment you arrive :) I notice in the subject that you talk about 'world travel company', with which I assume you mean work & travel company? If you're travelling with them, or an orgaization like them (BUNAC for example), then it's even easier to get to know others since you'll likely end up arriving or travelling to Australia as a group. Great way to get to know a few people in the beginning actually :)

Cheers,

Sam

Yes, there's about 2000 Working Holiday Makers every week arriving in Australia and about another 7000 independent backpackers per-week.....Work and Travel Company will immerse you with others from day 1 so you will meet others. But, as Sam says: there are plenty of people around all looking to meet others. My advice - if you go alone - pre-book a hostel for at least four nights: The best options in Sydney are WAKE-UP or BASE. You'll be in a shared room, and these places have great social activities going on every day. If you go with a company like BUNAC or Work and Travel you will get the same result, but you will likely meet people on the trip down to Oz.

Happy Travels
