Hi everyone i have just joined this forum. Thanks to Darwin Ichuryaa letting me know how to join..(You can tell i havn't used a forum before) Oh dear..haha. Oh well first time for everything! Anyway my name is Laura, 23 yrs old from Blackpool, England. I am thinking of going travelling later this year..Definatly to Australia!..and maybe a couple more countries eg South Africa,America. I completed my photography degree in June 06. I love taking photo's and i'm really excited about taking photographs in various countries! Cant wait! Seen as i'm thinking of going it alone..Anybody got any advice?..Best places to go?..and maybe how to get a job when i'm out there?..I'm sure i will become very skint, very quickly!! ha..Anyway i'll stop ramblin on...I have the tendency to chat a lot..which i'm sure you've noticed!..
What about a round the world ticket?
U can use it, to fly around the world, stopping in various places. It is valid for one year, so that would give u several months to work someplace, if u want.
As far as i know, u can apply for a temporary work permit, to work in Australia. They are usually for under 30s. Or maybe under 29s. They change the age sometimes.
Work in Australia:
As a British citizen, you can easily get jobs all over Europe. This means you don't need a work permit if you want to be a photographer at the fahion shows in Paris or Milan. Contact your local Department for Work and Pensions on the legal details for working abroad in Europe.
i too have a photography background and a tendency to get skint rather quick
i will be in melbourne from mid may trying to eek out a living and have some fun
after that i will wander off to new zealand and then home via south america
drop me a line if you end up in melbourne
Hey thanks Maria for the website..Will look forward to having a look!: And Mel..a Round the world ticket sounds great!..I'll have to some research on that, just not sure wether i'm gonna go for a long period of time thats all!..but who knows what'll happen!..As long as i definatly get to go Travelling for a few months.. i'm happy!!
And Joey..You did get my message i sent to you right?..ha..as i say i aint used to these things..Gotta check its working! haha..
im in the same boat.
27 year old male from scotland, and am heading on my travels from december.
my sis lives in sydney so am heading over there for new year then after that its on my own!!!
basing most of my trip in Oz, but fancy a wee trip to morrocco,Goa,and Thailand.
drop me a message Laura if u fancy??
anyone else got any tips etc, would be much appreciated!!!
Sounds wicked, the one bit of advice for you from me is as you're going to be taking loads of photos I reckon you should set up a blog so all you friends and family can look at the photos and read what you've been up to. I haven't been travelling in a good few years and I wish I'd been able to do this. It would be so great to look back on.
hey laura...im good thanx. hows u??
like i mentioned, my sister lives in oz, so if you want i could easy send her a e-mail asking about places to look at for jobs etc...
send me a e-mail if u find that easier
