HI guys,

Im a new traveller whos got a flight to brissy april 7th 2011. Im gonna be meeting an old friend in surfers and then going it alone up the east coast i think.

Im just here asking for advice for new travellers going it alone!

Having those scary thoughts that its all gonna end horribly! which i think is normal, has anyone got there own story about there travels? everyone seems to love it, gonna be taking around $6000 and ill be wanting to work as much as possible. Plan to stay for 18 weeks, but who knows maybe ill do the whole year if its as good as ive been told it is :)

anyone one else in surfers april time ?

thanks guys,

Hi claire, and armysyd44. IM SO SCARED ahaha :)

are you two both going over to travel ? well im gonna be in surfers paradise for awhile so it would be good to catch up with you guys if your heading that way.

how much money are you guys taking if you dont mind me asking, how long are you staying ?

i like the idea of other people being in the same boast as me :)
