Hey there!! :)

I am an Aussie looking to go to the UK in Dec '06 or Jan '07 for working holiday.
My name is Janelle, I'm 23 and never been out of Oz!!
Anyone else going to be in UK at this time, and looking for a buddy?
I will most likely be going without my partner, and would really love to meet up with others!! Seems quite scary going over on my own!
Have no idea where to start? Was thinking I will just start in London when I get there and see what happens from there.
My younger sis was over there last year, I think she ended up in Oxford, but she also stayed in a couple of other places.....

Anyway, love to hear from you (or even start an email friendship)! :)

I'm from Singapore and will be in London for working holiday from next month onwards. If you are keen to keep in touch, just leave me a message. Hopefully, I will be very settled by then and could help you with some stuff. Am clueless about alot of things as well. But from what I gather form the forum, if possible, get a UK bank account ready from your country. Major banks there are Barclays, HSBC and some others. I think HSBC in Au can help you with opening a UK account. Call up the bank and speak to them.
Oh yes, get your younger sister to help you! She definitely can help laods more for you!

I live in Manchester so if you ever make it "up north" I'd be more than happy to help or meet up for a drink
