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.
