So far I've got my flight booked, Heathrow to Hong Kong on Sept 20th, two days in Hong Kong for an adventure there, then fly onto Sydney Sept 24th. Booked into The Rocks for five nights then going to head up to Cairns and start working my way back down. t6o Sydeny for xmas and NYE.....if I can get something booked for xmas ha ha!!
I think I'll just take what I can get now since I've left it late
Yeah defo check out it asap, also look into the flights, r u and kate still thinking of doing the ozintro or have u scrapped that idea, i havnt booked anything yet, but i spoke to them yesterday and they only have 5 places left so i better make my mind up quick sharp.
I guess aswell that we may bump into each other also, and go see some of the best sites that oz has to offer us.
But in the mean time it would be nice to meet you both and talk about our plans and stuff, at least then we would all know another friendly face when we arrive xx
With regards to the flights up to cairns go on the website virgin blue , they r quoting about £80 at the moment, and the hostel situation there is defo room at the YHA sydney Railway square as i have just checked it for claire xx
I'll get my flight booked this weekend I think, and deffo book somewhere for christmas. Glad to hear your plans are coming together. I still can't believe I'm actually doing it!!!!!
Woo hoo, roll on Sept!!!!!!!!
Have u arranged any travel insurance as yet??? xx
Not yet, I've looked at loads but seem to have so many other things to spend my money on I've just not got around to it ha ha
The problem is travel insurance is boring, not exciting like booking hostels and flights etc dont u think? xx
Hey Gail, quick question.... your flight with Quantas, was it the 'World Walkabout' ticket? we were thinking of just getting the 'Walkabout' one... £300ish cheaper?! Are you planning on stopping other places etc? Cause I think that's what the difference is maybe?
ohhhh, just been looking at places to stay for xmas and nye.... def think we'll be doing the beach thing for xmas then city for NYE and probably, as long as still places, go to YHA Sydney Railway Square...
It'll be my 30th on the 27th of Dec so will def need to do something wicked on that day!
So we're booking out flights on Friday night and hopefully accom too.
and yeh this is much more fun and interesting than insurance!! :o)
catch up with you soon
ps... don't think we'll do the oz intro thing to be honest, but probably would do it if I was on my own. great way to meet people, although don't think that'll really be a problem, but might ease you into it maybe??
let's arrange to meet up soon tho :o)

The flight i saw was on netflights.com it wasnt the world walkabout ticket, it is just a standard return ticket but you can add on a stop over either on the way there or on the way back if you want to at a later date, where did you see the price for the lower amount as i have just looked and the only one i can see is the £600ish one but that is only one way.
Just been looking at the YHA at Bondi but you have to book a minimum of 9 nites there which is 24 dec 4 jan, so that one would be no good, back to the drawing board xx
ah ha!! yeh I think we're just looking one way at the moment.... might re-think that tho.
think we're def gonna beach it but poss not bondi, yeh esp with the 9nights min. think we might book railway tho for nye, that's a 5night min, but that'll work fine me thinks!
sooo many things to do!
tell me about it, i have not stopped for the last couple of days, been trawling the net for good deals ringing places aswell, have u decided what date you are going to do yet or r u still pondering???
I think i will book the ozintro tomoz, as i dont want to loose a place because of my indecisiveness, then i really will be up shits creek. hopefully by this time tomoz i will have both the 1st week sorted and the flight booked, all i need to do then is get more excited than i already am now!!! lol xx
