Hey, I'm planning on travelling to Australia at the end of May on my own...bit nervous about the whole thing but sure there are plenty of people heading over in the same situation.. staying with family in Melbourne first but want to head on to Sydney after!

Lil J just get out there and book it please!!!! You have been going on about this for weeks now, 2-3 weeks in OZ can't take that much planning, surely!!!! Do it girl.

You should"nt worry about travelling on your own ,I originally set of with a friend from home but went our seperate ways (to much drinking) then I went on to travel with various people I met for approx another 16 months .You"ll have a great time and unless your a social regect and even then I"d be surprised if you don"t hook up with someone as most people are i the same boat.
Have fun very jealous

I know-i'm really bad-its a BIG step for me-never been to an airport-am planning to go Ireland just for a weekend alone within the next couple of months-im feel i need to do this before booking my Oz ticket.

I've spoken to my area manger and my extended holiday 'plea' will have to go through head office but that should be sorted within the next couple of months as well!!

I will get out there and i know ive been rambling on about it for absolutely AGES i get so frustrated with myself-belive me!!-as you all do as well, but well, i dont know!

I will make it in Sept!!!

thanks for encouragement craig.. do have doubts every now and then.. but then think y not, have to do it sometime r u'll regret it and if it all goes pear shaped i can just jump on a plane home..but sure it won't come to that!
whoevers going to ireland first... im from there and you'll have a great time but think australia is more geared up for lone travellers etc, just go to Temple Bar and drink Guinness all day with the locals...if there are any in Dublin any more!

no travelled a lot with others including inter-railing round Europe last summer, but this will be the first time going alone... not too worried though.. its easy to talk yourself out of things so just do it.. as nike would say! when u heading off... im going at end of May, have to wait until March 16th to book however as getting dreaded exam results so won't know long term plans until then!

Hi, I'm a 26yr old easygoing girl from Liverpool. I’m looking to get over to Oz in Aug / Sept. I’d like to visit Thailand, NZ, etc. Haven’t booked anything yet!! Similarly don’t look forward to travelling alone, would like to meet up with like-minded people. Get in touch if you’d like a travel companion.
