I'm a 24 year old female from South Wales, setting off on my biggest journey yet mid Sept 2010! Heading to North America, then Fiji, but spending majority of my time in New Zealand (3 months) and then Australia (7 months).
Not looking for a companion for the whole journey, just wondering if anyone else will be following a similar path, or visiting these places at the same time!
Its my first big trip, so I'm really excited but quite nervous! Anyone who's travelled before if you've got any advice it would be well appreciated!
Having traveled Australia a few years ago (and planning to do it again this year), my biggest piece of advice is to not make any rock solid plans and just go with the flow. You'll enjoy it much more and probably end up doing things you've never even dreamed of. I know I did.
I'm planning to be in Aus from Feb/Mar this year and spending a whole year down under.
The only plan I will have is where I'm flying to and my first job location. After that I will just see what happens.
Yeah thats what I'm thinking really. I've booked my flights, and I should have about seven and a half months there.. so its open really. I want to work a bit. Want to see the east coast first, then the west coast.. because I fly home from Perth. But apart from that I have no plans. Really excited! x
