Not sure what hostel yet but thanks for the hostelworld.com checking that out,

You can also look at hostels right here on travellerspoint, which includes all the hostels from hostelworld, plus many that aren't on hostelworld.

I just got a one way ticket, less to worry about having to change flight dates,
As I may leave from a different city.

Does anyone know where a good place to get Insurance from,
Is Insure and go aright?? I have no clue about this part,

Good news you got your ticket lucy

I got my insurance through STA, just paid for 6 months then i can extend it if I stay longer. Wasn't bad and covers pretty much everything. So long as it covers any activities you might go on, medical expences up to a decent amount and anything else you want covered you should be fine. My parents helped me out a little with this bit...

hi guys,
I am travelling by myself for many the same reasons as you guys. I've not booked my ticket yet but hoping to head out to Asia for a month before heading out to Aus maybe Melbourne or Sydney then heading up the coast. Looking to meet new people and have a laugh on the way. Get in touch if you fancy meeting up or chat

Hi Shona,

When is it you are looking at leaving? I'm going to Thailand on the 23rd April for 2 weeks. I then have a flight booked to Sydney, but I might book a domestic flight to Melbourne instead and start from there.

Hey all,

I'm flying into Sydney from Bangkok currently on the 19th March, but that's likely to change to a later date as I want to spend longer in SE Asia. My mate dropped out on me at the last minute so I'm very interested in meeting some other people going at the same time.

Let me know if you fancy meeting up.

Dave

Hey there
I'm travellin for first time alone on 16th March to Sydney. I'm 30 but very young at heart! Very excited, but getting nervous as the day is approaching. Would love to hook up with people in similar position. Anyone around Sydney on that date? I have no strict plan as going with the flow. I want to see as much of Oz as poss.

Hi Claire,
Thanks I'll have a look, I know there is a STA in my town.
I'll see what deal they can do for me,
Have a good time in Thailand,

I'll be in Sydney from April, I want to go to Melbourne that's as far my plans have gone,
I will be on here trying to meet up with people in whatever place I am in,
who are doing the Oz thing like me,

Rob,

I'd like to go to Melbourne too, but i'm flying into Sydney to start with. I have a list of things in my head that I would like to do but not setting out too much of a plan before I get there. Hopefully will meet a good group of people

Hey everyone, making me feel much better reading your posts as I was a little worried travelling on my own!!
Im very jealous as I aint leaving until 1st June, flying to Bangkok then on to Perth on 9th June... Im going to work in Perth first as apparantly thats where the best money is then Im going to fly to the east coast... melbs or sydney depending on what i feel like at the time!
I looked into the money situation and u are supposed to have $3000, I will be taking £1500 - £2000 so hopefully this will be enough!
