Hey Pablo, when i left in april 08 i flew up to the north east. You'll just miss the wet season. i travelled down the east coast as the year went on. our summer months in sydney are quite pleasant, as its their winter.

I am hoping to stay for the year. THe only plan I have so far is to get to Sydney at the end of February in time for Mardi Gras at the begining of March. Then want to travel as much as possible and work to keep me going cos i have a whv. Want to try and get to new zealand, fiji, thailand. May do some of them at the end on the way back to england.

What are your plans? How long you staying there for?

Not really got any plans as such! Got my whv, will have to work out there or i'll only last a couple of months! But yeah the more places the better, i say! thailand and nz sound great. If im lucky enough to get work and it all works out for me then i will make the most of the whv and travel for a year.

How old are you?

Im a lot older than you! lol Im 31. Just fed up of the daily grind of sitting behind a desk so now feels like the right time to do a bit of travelling!
