I'm from south yorkshire :) i know me too I think if i dont do it this year I will never do it! so excited and nervous, I'm quite adventerous though so I think I'll be fine :D I'm same my friends have all get there own lives now and wouldnt be able to afford to come with me. Yeah thats what I'm going to do! Ive got some family members over there that are going to help me find work. I'm starting off in Sydney hopefully going with a company called worktravelcompany. Its quite expensive but theyre so supportive and they sort out all the hassle for you like getting a tax code and bank account and everything! they also put you up for a week when you get there with other people and social activities like scuba diving and surfing. So hopefully meet people there and bum along with then until people decide to go there seperate ways where I will then go to Brisbane to be with family on my own. I dont know what to do about luggage!! Cheapest flights I have found up to now are with Malaysya airlines x x

I havent heard of that company I'll have to have a look. I'm just thinking if I book on my own randomly into a hostel i wont meet anybody! ha. Thats pretty much exactly the same as I'm planning. I went on STA and their cheapest flight is with malaysia airlines so I think thats who I'm using :) where in South Yorkshire are you from?
