I just booked my one-way ticket last week and arrive in Sydney on April 14th. It's the first time I'm traveling overseas and the first time I'm traveling alone. Eek! I'm excited and terrified at the same time. Looking for advice on cheap but safe and clean hostels, cheap and efficient transportation, attractions, etc. Would love to chat with people and maybe arrange a meet up or something.

I'm also planning to go to New Zealand sometime before July to start my WHV. Does anyone have any tips for NZ as well? I haven't booked my flight over yet but it'll probably be to Auckland as I don't think Christchurch will be rebuilt by then. The effects of the earthquake there are pretty horrible according to all the news reports.

hi mate,

I will hit to Auckland on july with WHV. I will travelling alone too. If you fancy to meet up just give me a shout.

Do you have any plan yet once you land in Auckland?

Hi Felson,

No, I don't really have any plans for Auckland yet - don't even have a ticket. I want to stay on the North Island during the winter though, where I hope it's warmer. I will try to do some HelpX or WWOOFing along the way too. Maybe find a job too.
