Hi all,

was anyone ever been worried or a little scared about travelling ?

I'm off to see the world in August of this year, and am starting off in Oz, I'm going alone!!! I don't normally get worried about things, but I am nervous!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else going to Oz soon?

Hi Nikki,

Me and my friend are off to Oz in a few weeks time too and we are both very nervous but EXTREMELY EXCITED at the prospect of the unknown. I think everyone is a little nervous doing something different and new but we hope that we will meet loads of new people and experience things that we have never got to before so it will be ace!

Dont worry be happy:P Where you planning to go in Oz - all over?

Goose (calum) and Gatekeeper (bex) :p

Thanks for your reply!, Im excited too, I thinks it's what you said, the unknown.....But I'm sure I will have a great unforgettable time!

I'm going to Brisbane first, and then Sydney to work, but I'm not going to work for at least 4-5 months. Id like to visit cairns too. I want to do so much stuff though, so I'll see how my funds go lol.

Have you been travelling before? I hope it goes well for you and your friend too!

I'm the same Nikki, away in 2 months to Oz maybe a few other countries if the funds allow it. I'm going it alone too, I'm really nervous but so excited at the same time. Its going to be a great experience.

Hi Ya Nikki!
Welcome to Oz (soon)! Have you looked at the 'sticky' about the group getting together for New Year in Sydney?
I've just suggested to Michelle that she hook up with someone (or two) and share the cost of a campervan to move around Oz. Heaps of flexibility. And you might be able to pencil in some plans before you get here.
Distance is something travellers to Oz don't have any idea about until they actually get here.
So many people come out to Australia around Christmas but I'm amazed at the numbers that are travelling alone!
If you can, have a look at the 100 odd posts about the group getting together for New Year in Sydney.
