hey im a 21 year old medical student whos travelling within my 6 weeks summer leave. im thinking of staying in oz for 5 weeks. any other travellers heading out then?
i have a rough idea of where im heading but is really rough. ive travelled to africa once before for four weeks but i was in the same animal farm for four weeks so i was not travelling as such. so excited to travelling alone but will feel a lot more at ease having spoke to a couple of people who'll be out there the same time. im starting off in sydney and heading up east coast, haha i say it so confidently but will have no idea what to do when i first land! anyone goin to be there same time... im thinking ill land in sydney mid july anywhere from the 18th onwards.
please get in touch if youll be there too, and help point me in the right direction! happy travelling people x :)

hey Natalie,

My name is Adam & i'm leaving the UK to head to australia at the start of september, so will be there around the same time as you.

I have booked to go out with a company called Ultimate Oz but after my first week with them, which sounds awesome btw, i will be free to do a bit of travelling. Do you think you will fly in to sydney and then go off travelling for a bit?

If so let me know as I hope to go up the coast from sydney maybe to byron bay. Not sure how far away anything is yet so hard to make definite plans.

hey guys, well i have changed my mind about the trip so many times but the more i thought about it and sorted my finances (to some extent) its a definate that im going!!! so its official ill be heading to sydney for around the 16th of july and thats about all ive got sorted, im then heading up the east coast for five weeks of fun!
my plans are also so basic its just off to sydney and head up! im hoping ill bump into someone who'll point me in the right direction every step of the way. lol. id love to keep in touch with all of yous and definately welcomes other travellers as im on my lonesome. ive just one question for yous, how much spending are you taking per week. i cant quite figure it out, i was thinking of maybe taking £1600 for five weeks, excluding flights of course and im not a heavy drinker and veggie. so i basically live off bread and butter when im away lol... if yous could help me with the money that'll be great.
have fun what ever yous do and would love to hear from yous xxx:)
