Paul, it seems we have much the same 'plan' and idea. I'm also slightly nervous about the going on my own thing (I'm not the most outgoing person ever), but at the same time I know I'll be fine.
I leave in 10 days, straight to Sydney - and amazingly I'm still not nervous about it! I'm sticking around Sydney until after New Year, then decide what I'm going to do then (stay in Sydney longer and look for work, or move on). I'm just going to see what happens.
I've got mates going over to NZ in Jan so, money permitting, I'm hoping to get over there for a short while at some point in the next 12 months too.
Let me know when you get over there, we'll have a few pints!
I'm 18 and travelling on my own, due in Melbourne on 10th December! I was thinking about going to watch some of the cricket and tennis whilst out there, however might go travelling if I meet people doing the same thing. I have a job starting in Adelaide from the 28th January, would be great if I could meet any people doing the same thing, as I am a bit nervous!==
Would be great to meet up once i get there as it seems we are kinda gonna do the same thing. As I said i should be getting there for the end of february. Will message you on here check what ya up to nearer the time :-)
has anyone arrived in oz since this thread started.... any advice? i'm leaving in may.
im 25 and travelling alone, Im looking into doing some conservation work out there after i have got myself settled as that is what my degree is in and Oz is a fab place for biodiversity.... I know i will prob end up doing volunteer work and pay my way with a bar job but either or i CANT wait!!!!! x
