My name is Gail and am from rainy Scotland! I am planning to go to Oz anytime after October. I hope to go for a year, it will be my 1st trip away alone and am a bit scared of the long flight, don't much trust planes! If anyone else has any similar plans please get in touch or if anyone can recommend any places to go that would be great.
Thanks Gail : )

Hi Gail. I'm off to Oz at the end of June strating off in Cairns and working my way down the east coast then want to head over to the west as well. Where are you starting off? our paths may cross at some point - if you want to meet up let me know as I'm also travelling alone. Rach

I may be doing the same thing as everyone else here. Im currently living and working in Japan, but will be back in the UK in the middle of Sept, but have a feeling that i wont want to stay for too long!! Would love to do Aus, NZ and SE Asia, but my travel buddy has a job now so doesnt want to / cant come with me. At this point have no plans whatsoever, just a thought that i want to go. Would probs be lookin to leave the UK in Nov, so that i can have 6 weeks at home first and then im up for staying for however long really. If people have actual plans do let me know and perhaps i can tag along??
