kfromusa, I'm coming from Virginia and flying out of whereever I find the cheapest ticket. I don't know exactly where I'm staying yet but Ive been advised to reserve a hostel in Sydney (or nearby) in advance for the first few days. It's not the thing ya wanna deal with after a 24 hr flight ya know. Let me know if you wind up booking one.
ps: hit me up on myspace/ facebook if ya wanna stay in touch prior to the trip... i'll msg you my personal info. later!
Hey Hey! I finally got my ticket and I too am leaving on Oct 7th... ~ Rox, are you moving into your apartment in SYD immediately or doing the hostel thing for a while? That's pretty cool that you already know someone there. I've been considering staying in a hostel in "Coogee" for the start of things. I hear it's a sick little town by the beach just outside of Sydney. I don't have MSN either... Are you on Facebook or Myspace? Let me know if ya wanna meet up and grab a beer when we arrive.
Yah I'm moving into an apartment right away when i get there. I don't have MySpace or Facebook, I think stuff like thats bullshit. But yah we can probably meet up in Sydney for a pint or 15, if we cud only figure out a way to communicate:p
Im heading to Sydney on my own in October also. Think im planning to stay in Wake up Hostel as it looks really good fun! Im a bit worried about going alone, but im sure it will be easy to meet people!
Where are you guys planning to stay?
I was also thinking of staying at Wake Up. I have a few friends that stayed there and really liked it. When are you going?
Were you interested in doing a tour while you were traveling? Staying in hostels I met SO many people, and I also did a few surf tours (I am a total beginner, but am obsessed with learning!) and met two great traveling buddies from there as well. You'll do fine and find a few good people to travel with in no time!
Have fun and good luck!
