Hey everybody!!
Im Leona, 24yrs old from Dublin:)..So i finally just went and did it!!! Just booked my flight to Perth for June15th and im sooo excited. Im travelling alone but would love to meet somebody heading the same way for fun I have no plans yet and id love some ideas as this is my 1st time in Australia, and my first time to travel alone. Exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time!! Im going on a year working visa and im pretty flexible with my plans once I get there!!

i will be in Perth on July 4th, then road tripping up the west coast with my friend whomoved over to oz a few years ago, will be staying with him in his town for around 2 months before i make my way to the east. Anybody who wants to meet up at any point during this year get in touch, would be good

Hey Leona,

When i was reading your blog it was like i was reading mine lol, i am going to be in the exact same boat as you. Do you have anywhere to stay yet? it would be great to meet someone there doing the exact same thing as me. i've booked my flight for the 20th, not sure if i want to rent a room or get a hostel! i think a room might be cheaper for like a month or so.... i think i'm going to get a job whist im there too to keep me ticking over :)

Hey Steph,

would be really cool to meet up with you soon! i think Freemantle is the place to go though! maybe we could all meet up together and you could give us some advice on the other side.

Hope to hear from you both soon
