Leaving tomorrow for my trip to SE Asia, Oz + NZ.
Going to be in Cairns from the 16th april, solo female traveller age 19. Never done anything like this before so very excited/nervous! if any there are any other people on the east coast from april til june let me know! got 2 months to get from Cairns to Melbourne.
any last minute tips from more experienced travellers would be appreciated, as the nerves are kicking in now!
Wow, Exitement! let us know how it goes, im doing cairns to melbourne next year as the last part of my RTW :D
Ah I left for Oz on my own at 19 too! Best thing I'd ever done!! You'll meet tons of solo travellers so don't worry about that... and nearly everyone I met out there who had began travelling with a friend has spent a good few months away from each other going solo and doing their own thing!
There's no where easier also than the East Coast to meet people! It's the backpacker hub really
If you go Sydney, stay a week or so in Manly (just a ferry ride over) at Boardriders hostel... I planned to go there for 4 days and ended up staying 6 months =]
Don't be nervous... once it begins, you'll realise it's the easiest thing!
thank you, I am really excited now! will look into that hostel, thanks!
i think its the waiting that is the hardest thing..oh well not long left now!
thanks for the advice.
