Is anyone going to be in Melbourne in September/October this year?! I'm going then and hoping to stay there for a few months, find a job (ANY job) and hopefully rent a room in a house filled with other backpackers in the same situation as me, before moving onwards and upwards to somewhere even hotter! My sister lives out there so I'm staying at her house until I manage to find my feet, but I'm slightly scared I won't meet many people as I'm not starting out in a hostel, so if you are going to be around then and have similar sort of plans I'd love to hear from you!

OOOOO hello to you both and thank god someone has replied to me ahaha! I'd love to meet up with you both when I'm there! My sister said living with her and her boyfriend will be like living with my parents as they are both settled down, so I definitely need to get out there and find other people hahah!

Catherine, I got your message! I will find you on twitter. I only decided I was going to come for the year last week, so I haven't been saving at all, and just finished uni so completely skint. So going over with whatever I can save from now until then, which involves a lot of nights in and being bored, but it will be worth it when we get there! I'm pleased you have similar plans we can job search together!

Caitlin are you already out there now, or going over soon? We will definitely have to celebrate your birthday!

Let's keep in touch!
