I'm hoping to go to Australia this year, probably aug/sept time.
Not sure if i'll be travelling alone (argh! scared!) or with a friend. I'd love to do some other travelling on the way eg thailand, NZ, fiji, bali etc. but don't have anything set in stone.
Just hoping to chat with people planning a similar trip, maybe plan meeting up or even someone starting out at the same time? travel buddy kinda thing?
I'm 23, female (amanda) based in manchester

Hi amanda ,
My names Jamie , im 22 from manchester aswell doing the same as you.
Im looking at leaving august time and travelling for 6-12 months aswell. Im willing to start off alone but would be better to find some like minded people to share the trip with and have a good laugh.
Probably be good to get a group of about 4-5 people together?? Where in manchester are you , im old trafford way.

im not far from there, i live chorlton/trafford!
i think travelling with a group sounds an ace idea, a friend of mine is interested in travelling also, but she has work commitments so might not make the trip

My name is Nicole and im kinda new to all this too.
Im pretty much in the same position where im definatly going travelling, end of August or September time. Im may have a friend with me for part of it, but like yours she has a few commitments too.
Im 22, living in southampton at the moment but im from Wales.
I was hoping to do Austrailia, a bit of NewZealand, Fiji, and South East Asis too.
Nothing is set in stone im totally open to ideas and would love to form a little group to go with.
It would be great to meet new people before going or even on the way.
My email address is, would be good to keep in touch.
