I'm in the same boat with going alone! I am definitely nervous and quite intimidated but excited at the same time. I'm planning to be in Australia by the second week of January. Love the reassuring words in this post from everyone else who is traveling solo, makes me feel better!

When I did it I think I cheated a bit! I booked on an organised trip to start with (I went to Peru with Active South America - there is Active New Zealand too), so that way I knew someone would meet me off the plane and I'd have company for the first few weeks. It worked really well because I met a heap of people and did some cool stuff, and then I felt a bit more settled and into the swing of things when I got going by myself. It helped me for sure! You guys sound braver than me though :) Have fun travelling!!

I understand how you feel, i am doing the same the end of August 2012, so scared but very hopeful and i just know i'll be ok and so will you too.

Like someone said to me if at worst you get too home sick then you can always come home and you would have ticked a box off.

I'm hoping to save as much as i can as i doo want to work for about 6 months whilst out there but don't want to run out of money. And i'd love to be able to do a tour across the nothern states and canada/Quebec on my way home :)

The very best of luck to you :)
