As its my first time travelling I am a bit worried about staying in a hostel??!!! Ive heard some worrying stories but I suppose thats the sacrifice I am going to have to make especially if I want to meet fellow travellers! Has anyone thought about perhaps renting a shared apartment in sydney?

Hey all,
I've booked my one-way ticket for Nov. 8th (through Visafirst), for my first solo trip abroad, which is very rapidly approaching!!! I've been considering renting an apartment in Sydney, as I'd like to stay there for a few months. Don't know the best way to go about it. Should I look into it before I go, or worry about it once I arrive? I have my first 4 nights booked in a hostel, then I'll need to think about sorting it out. Glad to see so many cool people in the same boat! Cheers, Elise

Hi Jess,

I too am from Nottingham!

I'm travelling to Australia from 5th November - 17th November and looking for people to meet up with.

I've only just joined this site, so unsure how we can all contact each other apart from by the board posts? Ideally, I'd like to talk to people over facebook/email etc before my trip :)

This is my first trip on my own so I'm a little nervous, but excited more than anything! It would be great to chat to people before-hand and get to know you - this will make me feel a little more relaxed about my trip knowing that I'll have a few friends to meet with! My friend lives in Manley, so at least I know one person, but not sure I can tag along with him for the full 2 weeks!!

You can click on someone's name to go to their profile, and in there Send a private message (the big green button in the top right corner on the full profile page). For most people, this sends them an email, and when they're logged in on the site, they also see notices of new messages at the very top-right of the site (in the blue header bar). Obviously you can exchange email addresses, facebook names, etc through private messages to continue the conversation somewhere else afterward.
