Hey all

I'm a 22yr old english girl planning on travelling to Oz around January time 07, and have now accepted the fact that it will be a solo trip thanks to the lack of friends with a similarly sized travel bug as me.!!

Now although i've already been and seen with my own eyes how easy it is to meet people (for a shorter trip with a friend), this time its going to be just little old me- and however much i remind myself that i've spotted loadsss of threads with people saying theyre doing the same thing in the same place... it would still be nice to have a few contacts of my own before i get there!!
As tough as i think i am, it still feels daunting...!

So basically, anyone heading to Oz early 07 (prob syd initially!) and wants to share plans before they go or have a few beers when they get there, drop me me a PM!!!!

(After all, as i keep telling all my cynic buddys who tell me im mad for going solo - i'm not actually travelling alone, i'll b travelling with friends, i just haven't met them yet! Not sure if i'm trying to convince myself or them, but at least it works )

I arrive in sydney from Thailand on the 6th jan where I'll probably be for a month or 2 before moving up the coast. I've been talking to a girl who arrives there at the same time but she flies into Melbourne.

Best thing to do is book into a good hostel and you'll meet loads of people.

If you want I'll pm you my msn messenger address.

I´m a 19-year old girl from Finland and I´m going to melbourne on the 29th of december..I´ve got friends in Sydney, so I´ve planned a trip to Sydney, maybe in March..
But I´m also going to travel alone, and it would be fun to meet some other travellers..
