Hey Everyone,

My major count down has begun.... 16 days till I head off on my adventure :-) started counting when I still had 19 weeks to go n now the time is fast approaching. Really cant wait but also very nervous...!!!

I am sure there are loads of you planning to do Bondi Beach for xmas and Harbour for NYE :-) and would be nice to start chatting to some of you and meet up when we r there!

Where are ppl staying for xmas n NYE? I am at the Wake Up hostel 20th Dec- 4th Jan.

Are you excited?? I am but also a lil nervous! are u travelling alone?? n e stop over? I fly to Hong Kong for 2 nights first so dont get into sydney until late on 18th :-)

Where u plannin to head to after Sydney? I will have to get some work at some stage too, think the money I have saved will disappear in no time! N e idea wat sort of work u r goin to look for? I have been told by friends who have been travelling to join some of the agencies as they find u work quite quickly.
