Quoting skippy3587


Im going to travel Australia September 2011 for about 9 months. I am currently travelling on my own but am scared going alone! I am thinking of flying to Cairnes! I definately want to spend xmas and new year in Sydney and want to work my way up or down the East coast! I am always up for a laugh and love a good party but also spending time chilling out. If anyone else is travelling alone and in the same boat as me and want someone to travel with, i would love to hear from you!!!


My names Alfie am 23 from Scotland am in the same boat a want to travelling have you planned anything out yet?

Hey Alfie

All the plans i have is to spend xmas and new year in Sydney and work my way up the East Coast. I have a WHV so i am going to be working whilst im out there. Other than that i will go with the flow. I am hoping to leave within the first week of September, and i cant wait. Do you have any plans?

Hey Chris

Your plans sound basically the same as mine! Im going to fly to Cairns with the first week of September, then go on from there! I havent made any plans as i know they will most likely change when i get there. I am worried about going alone, but also so excited now coz iv got talking to people who are doing the same thing! I cant wait to get out there. I have got my Visa sorted, am going to book into Wake up Hostel in Sydney for Xmas and New year in next few days as everywhere in Sydney will get booked really quickly, then book my flights maybe next month!
Will be great to meet up over there, find me on Facebook if you want to chat more (if your on there that is)

I'm hoping to go in november on a WHV. I am 30 but def dont look or act like it (lol!) it would be really nice to meet some people before going to hook up with whilst there as it slightly daunting!

I live in Gloucestershire, haven't booked any flights or anything yet.
