hey goes it?

i am wondering if anyone is planning to go to oz in june for a bit of travelling. my plans were to go with a friend but he keeps putting it off so decided to bite the bullet on go on my own.

my other half introduced me to this as she's found lots of people to meet up with when her escapades round the world begins. i am looking at goin to thailand for a week, new zealand for a few weeks in late may then head for oz mid june until late august. when in oz i was planning to get a working visa but decided i'm just goin to do bit of travelling about, starting from sydney.

obviously a tad apprehensive about goin to oz on my own for the months i'm there, sure I will be fine but would def be good to meet people whos on same boat.

id say i'm easy goin and def up for having a good laugh. A like a wee pint now and again aswell. Now and again meaning quite often, haha!

so..if youve got similar plans/ideas/tips etc etc get in touch.

cheers folks, Ryan x

Hi Ryan, I'm going travelling on my own on 1st May, i'm flying to Thailand and staying there for 3 and a half weeks then going to Oz. I am spending four weeks in Oz, Landing in Sydney May 28th and hoping to do the great ocean road then work my way up the east coast all the way to and up diving the great barrier reef!! I'm then leaving Oz on June 24th to head to NZ. It is my first time travelling and i'm going on my own too....its a scary but extremely exciting prospect! Now i'm a bit older i thought i'd best just go for it (I'm 29 BTW) Cheers Charl
