Hey!

Are you planning on working or spending your time travelling?... my plan is to arrive in melbourne and work for the first few months until travelling up the east coast, probably end of April and end in Cairns. If your around at a similar time or planning on doing anything similar travelling wise we should see if any of our plans coincide and meet up!. I've not got long left till I fly now and I'm gett very excited!! nervous too haha.

I leave on the 6th Feb to Perth but arrive in Melbourne on the 14th!, ... do you have facebook? Would be good to meet up once your arrive in Melbourne if we are around the same time. I have no definite plans set for Melbourne as I need to see where I can find work, but I have booked to stay at Habitat HQ for the first 4 nights in St Kilda whilst I'm job hunting and then see how it goes from there. Very excited now! =] nervous also though haha

Hi Chaz,
I'll be flying into to Melbourne on the 13th of March, like donna also looking to find work first and the travel up the East Coast. the only thing i haven't booked yet is a hostel for the first few nights. Just set up a bank account online, hopefully thyat will make it a bit quicker when I get there. Very excited now, just want to get out there :)

Search Donna Percival, I have red hair so should be easy to find me haha.

I'm very excited,... I think I'll be really nervous on the day but I'm sure everything will run smoothly,watching lots of "nothing to declare" has made me scared of going through customs though! haha.

I have a cousin that lives in Perth so he shall be showing me around and giving me somewhere to stay whilst I'm there.
