Hi,

Im travelling to Oz end of september for a year to work and travel. Ill be staying in Sydney for the first 3 months working. Im staying with a cousin who lives there so cheap accomodation.

Does anyone know the best places to go to meet other people travelling? il not be in hostels or anything so wont meet anyone that way.

Hi Ben im sure you will have nothing to worry about - if you are working you will meet people that way and lm sure your cousin will introduce you to other people also!

Good Luck

hey,
Im currently in berlin and im staying in a friend'S apartment so likewise im not going to meet people in hostels. However, i worked and wehre i worked was full of young people so ive met people that way. Also, and im sure your cousin will do the same, my friend introduced me to lots of people before they went away on holiday (they left me in a flat on my own in the centre of berlin...must trust me:)) so i met new people that way too. When i was at a lost for things to do though i just went to a bar and got talking to people. Most people are going to be in the same boat and also once they found out your a traveller they will be even more willing to talk to you. I got talking to a load of londoners and leeds folk the other day and had a great night just by starting a conversation in a pub.
im sure you'll be fine:D
good luck down under, im going myself in september
