Hi everyone,

I am a 22 year old female from Scotland looking for a buddy to travel Australia with in Sept 2010!! I am looking at doing the Ozintro on 21st Sept and from there I have no plans(just the way I like it)!! Want to travel both the east and west coast and see/do as much as possible. I am looking to go for a minimum of 3 months and maximum of 1 year, also i will be getting a WHV so I can pick up jobs here and there to top up my travelling funds! Im looking for someone around the same age as myself with similar interests - I love trying/doing new things, going out and generally having as much banter as possible. Ideally id like to find someone/a group to travel with before I depart and it would also be good to do some travel planning together as I have never done this before! I am eager to get going with it all so get back to me asap if your keen and we can chat!

Thanks :)

Hey there,

I'm heading to Oz at the end of Sept (doing 2 weeks between Bangkok and Singapore first)... I fly in to Cairns on 27th, then pretty much have about 6 - 8 weeks to make my way down to Melbourne, before flying in to Auckland.
At the moment, i'm only going away for 4months as my work has granted me the time off... but i may decide to go for longer. If i do extend my trip, i'll likely stay in Oz a bit longer and apply for working visa (i'll decide this probably July time)

Would be great to meet up if we're around the same area, same time as i am also travelling alone. I'm Scottish too (live in Aberdeen), and will be 24 by the time i travel. Like you, all i'm after is good weather, good banter and good fun!

Hope to hear from you soon.

P ;-)

Hey guys,

Im a 26 year old Irish lad living in Dundee heading to Oz in September on me lonesome, all me mates are either too broke or too whipped to come along with me ;)

Im flying into Melbourne and planning on travelling round Oz for 4 months, spending Christmas and New Year in Sydney, before heading off to NZ for 4 months then travelling round SEA for 4 months then back to the UK. I have a working visa for Oz and NZ so im planning on picking up some bar work or whatever to keep my funds toped up as I travel.

Im fairly easy to get on with and im just up for having a good laugh, meeting new people and trying out new experiences. Would be cool to know some friendly faces when im travelling round OZ.

Cheers

Hey,

Add me on Facebook (Francesca Ferguson) if you want to keep in touch before going away, would be good to get to know some folk before heading out there! As no doubt we'll bump into each other on our travels.

Cheers :)

Hi,

I'm heading out to Oz in September, my plan so far is to start out in Sydney then head up the east coast from there (although I can be flexible with this). I really dont fancy doing this on my own so it'd be great to meet another traveler like myself! If you fancy meeting up then drop me a line,

Ben.
