I can't remember to be honest. It wasn't that much. I bought a return. It was 10 years ago, before budget airlines were around, and still it was a reasonable price. I'm sure one of the Aus guys will be able to answer what prices are these days.

Have a great trip Lil J. I finaly go on my 2 month trip to South East Asia this monday! If I had listened to everyone Id mentioned it to I probably wouldn't be going. All I got was, "Your going on your own!?..haha good luck", "You've never been backpacking", "You don't know any of the languages!"

So what..makes it more of a adventure in my opinion.

I just can't contain the excitement and nervousness!-and i haven't even booked my ticket yet!!

I can imagine that (hopefully in the next week) i will be sitting there putting in all my credit card details and be sitting there 'wanting' to press the 'go' or whatever button!!!

Wow-this monday-that's brill-let me know how it goes-most people have said go for it, my parents are quite anxious-and like you said they've been saying but you...on your've never been anywhere!! hehe!

Some one text me today and said its a big step are you sure you wanna go-silly question!!!

I know it's borrowing from another thread but in this case "commit" might seem the appropriate word. Go on you know you deserve it.

Hey Lil J i wouldn't worry too much about your parents being anxious. I'm 32, been to many places, and my mum still tries to put me off going every time i book a trip. She fears for my safety, worries i will drink tap water and get dysentry, eat unwashed salad and get food poisoning, develop malaria and then get trampled on by an elepahant - the list goes on and on!!!!

Ha! Ha!-that's really funny-oh trust me i don't really listen to it-i'd rather listen to my manager-she just says yup do it!! I mean of course i listen to em but well i got to find things out for myself!

Don't have a clue what an elepahant is

Get up and go, my 97 year old granny has offered me money to stay, she cant understand it at all, the need to travel. You know you deserve it.

I know-that's right i deserve it big time!!! It's just something that everybody that does it loves!

But at least if for some reason i don't like it i will know-as i've tried it-it's just a little nerve wracking but if i have to get on with things i usually do-i mean i'm sure i'll manage-some how-even if its done cack handed-oh i figure you know what i mean-i just about know!!-well most of the time!!!!
