It would appear from reading various posts on here there are quite a few lone travellers arriving in Syd in Feb and March, we all have similar excitement and apprehensions...so...
may I start a list to highlight who is arriving over that period so it can be made nice and clear to each other who we all are if anyone wants to make contact for support/meeting up for a drinky's sake?
I'll make a start...
I am Lucy. I am 29. I arrive on March 7th and heading to both Chemical Brother shows within 24 hours of arriving
Got no concrete plans after that weekend except find quality work (well actually, keep everything crossed that the job I have applied for comes up trumps!) and hopefully maybe meet up with some of the nice folk who are on this forum.
I have a big event planned for March 17th that forum bods are very welcome to attend but I will wait for replies before saying anything about my idea.
Hope you are all enjoying the packing, planning and are as excited as me to get away from this bloody miserable weather!!!
Hi Lucy, I like your idea of a 'list'!. Chemical Brothers sound cool, and March 17th maybe interesting!.
Im Gareth, 26 years old. I'm Arriving in Sydney on March 18th from Melbourne (got tickets for the F1 grand prix and touring the Great Ocean Road). It's just a 3 week holiday for me so i need to make the most of it, my first time in Oz!.
Im planning on staying in Sydney for 1 week and then fly upto the Brisbane area. People to meet for beers would be good!.
Well there is me on the list, who is next!?
You lucky thing going to the Grand Prix.
Going to go next year myself but looking forward to watching the race at a decent hour for the first time this year!!!
