DeniDeni has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Hi everyone! I am leaving to go to Australia on a WHV on the 14th December. I am doing Ozintro in Sydney for my first week then have absolutely no idea what to do! I have never been travelling before and i am sooo nervous!! Anyone else heading out around this time? Would be great to say hello or even plan to meet up!

Also any handy hints for the flight?? Im a terrible flyer!!

Thanks! Denise.xx:)

Hey Mike!

Thanks for that! Sounds like fun and would be great to meet so many other travellers in the same boat! I am really hoping to make a few new mates to then travel on with so im not on my lonesome!!
Not long at all now until you and your girlfriend are off!! Bet you cant wait.:)
With the camping thing at xmas and new year is it the kind of thing i would need to commit to now?
Thanks! Denise.

Helloooooooo!!! Im glad im not the only lone traveller then!!! Im totally shi***ng myself!! Haha!! Think im having a mid twenties crisis!!!

What date do you arrive in Sydney? I get there on Dec 13th, accommodation sorted for first week thru that ozintro group but then i havent made any plans at all!! Im just relying on meeting loads of cool, friendly people to tag along with!! Have you got a plan when you arrive or are you as unorganised as me??!!:)

Hey DeniDeni,

Were arriving in sydney about the 21st-22nd of december. like i said get involved on the TP group topic if your interested on staying on a cheap camp site with lots of like minded travellers (alot of us have never meet and are all travelling alone) The more the merrier
