Hey guys,
I am living in the grey granite city of Aberdeen, my job finishes mid July and hope to go over to Oz for a year, it's my last chance as i will be 30 soon :(
Just wondering if anyone is planning to go out towards the end of our summer, not that we get one here!
Have never travelled alone and would like some advice or company, have no fixed plans yet other than i need to leave before November as i already have my visa.

Hi Gail,
Why would anyone want to leave Aberdeen for the colonies???
You have the Bon Accord Gardens, Ma Cameron's, The Moorings, The Blue Lamp, Aberdeen Uni Union (many a hangover gained there, I can tell you), the best Wimpey bars (if they still exist) and Balmedie Beach close by.
I used to swim off that beach forty years ago, and the Indian Ocean can't hold a candle to it.
Don't forget to check out WA.

Enjoy to the max.
