Hi, my name's Jo, I'm 31 SWF, travelling alone for the first time to Australia after my travel companion let me down - yesterday!!!
I leave London on 15th december to get to Oz for 17th, landing in Sydney. Not really sure where's best to go coz I've never been before so helpful hints would be appreciated.
I'm also nervous about spending my birthday, Christmas and New Year alone in Oz - anone out there wanna meet up? Would be great to hear from you...
Im getting to Oz 5th Dec, flying up to Brisbane on 6th and spending couple of weeks coming down the coast. Should get to Sydney about 20th December. Would be great to meet up, I don't want to spend Xmas and NYE alone and there seems to be quite a few people up for meeting in Sydney.
I have started to look into booking a hostel over the Xmas period as apparently Sydney is heaving with backpackers over Xmas. I emailed YHA hostel today to see if they have any free beds.
it was funny when i read your messages, as i thought i was the only one feeling this way. would be great to meet up with others for xmas, as its also my birthday christmas day so gotta have a big celebration! i've booked my trip on a bit of a whim but now i realise there are others in the same boat as me i dont feel too bad. get in contact and i'm sure we will all have a great time!
come along and join us all in Sydney drop me a message and keep in touch.
