Hi everybody ;)

I'm new to this site, but i'm definatly glad i found it!
I'm going to be traveling to Sydney, Aus from the beginning of March 2007, and i'm going by myself. I'm hoping to travel around for a year but as a single girl i don't really know what to expect. I was just curious if i could find any other girls travelling alone in oz... or guys for that matter? Anybody who will be there the same time i will i would love to get in touch with you haha I love meeting new people and i can't wait to hear from everybody. Talk to you all later!

Hi courtney. I leave for oz in february.. Travel on Work&travel visum, and plan on getting some jobs along the way, but dont want to get stuck on one place. Im off to the cowboy&cowgirl scool in March, but after that - who knows Dont have any exact plans yet, but Im meeting a girl(whos also a backpacker, we've never met..) in Sydney. Im traveling alone too, and Im a nervewreck..hihi, a bit scared but I guess it will turn out okay. There are a lot of backpackers in the same situasion so I guess we'll get in contact with lots of friendly people.

Cowboy/Cowgirl school?? Thats so cool! Where are you taking that?? I'm planning on taking a couple photography courses at the Australian Center for Photography in Paddington. It's really comforting to know there are other girls traveling alone that far away. haha Well maybe we'll run into each other somewhere along the way :P Thanks for the reply!!

Take Care

Hi there

I am a 25 year old girl who is travelling to Sydney in Feb from the UK. I am looking forward to meeting new people as I too will be travelling solo and as well as feeling excited I am quite nervous. So if anyone wants to meet up then drop me an e-mail.

I'm heading on into Aussie (state unknown as of yet) most probably Brisbane... well see. In like 2-3 weeks. My plan so far is to buy a car slash van once I get there and head northwards upto Cairns stopping in Bundaberg for a month or so to work and do some diving (cheap classes there) I have no fixed agenda and no limitations. I'm very open to evrything and anything. I've had a couple years experience backpacking so if the alone thing is scary (as it was for me!!!) then I'd be happy to help out for a while. Anyways anyone of you PM me and we'll see what happens yeah?
