im 22, female and travelling alone to sydney in november. im currently in thailand travelling and decided i dont want to go home yet (england) so decided to book a random one way flight to oz. i know no one there and have no idea what im going to do haha....pretty chilled about it really. but would be great to meet someone in the same boat?? im planning on staying in a hostel for a couple of nights when i arrive then maybe start looking for apparments, got told they work out cheaper when there for awhile. and probably get a job as well to help the funds!

hope to hear from someone soon that would like to meet up, or just anyone that could give me some advice about the country!

Hi Joanna

I'm heading to Thailand on the 26th Sept then on to Oz in Nov/Dec, also similar plans. Hoping to get a job and do some travelling. Went to Oz last summer and travelled the east coast - was amazing. Prob gona start off at a hostel in Manley and see what happens from there! I'm 24, female, from Sheffield. Just left my teaching job. can't believe I'm doing it in a few days!

If you want to get in touch, add me on FB - profile pic where I'm wearing ridiculous large sunglasses in the middle of two other girls.

Hey Joanna,

I'm a 24 year old male from Canada and I'll be landing in Sydney on November 20th. I'll be in Oz for a year with a working-holiday visa. I plan on backpacking along the east coast staying in hostels and working part-time along the way. I'm booked at WakeUp for the first few nights but no set plans yet after that. Let me know if you want to meet up or chat beforehand leading up to your trip!
