Hello Bex,
I will be travelling to Australia in October, in fact we leave on the 10/10/10, at 10pm. I can never get over that :P

So anyway, although I won't be travelling alone, my sister planned on going to Aus with one of her friends a few years ago, five weeks before the departure date, her friend pulled out. My sister went alone, and she is still living out there now, its been nearly three years.

I take it you will be staying in hostels etc?

I won't lie, I'm 21 and I'm pretty damn nervous! Security is my main worry..

Where abouts are you going? :)

Lewis.

Hey Bex,
Well, we are doing an around the world but we will be in Australia for the best part of 11 months. I will be staying with my sister maybe a week or two.. But I am keen to do it properly and actually see Australia.. So we will be in hostels pretty much all the time.

We dont know which route we are taking, or even really how we are getting around yet.. But we know we are in Sydney for New Years :)

I did get a little bit excited the other day when we went shopping for backpacks :/

Walked around the shop for at least 8 minutes with one on my back before a mate told me it was a womans model

Well, I didnt actually buy it *because* it was the womans, but I assure you it was the most comfortable one in the shop :(

I found the male alternative: http://www.blacks.co.uk/product/100299.html
