I'm in pretty much the same boat as you Shellben, headin for a year - with the hope of staying longer if I like it.
Although sites like this, and others, are good for wee bits of advice I haven't planned much around whats been said on them with regards to what to do / see - its great to see what others think is good, but I plan on heading out and seeing things for myself.
I'll probably be leaving end of Feb, and stopping in Thailand for a few weeks before landing in Melbourne.
Sorry Shell I can't find how to see who has added me as a friend, you wouldn't think a worked with computers lol. Yeah I would love to have someone to travel with I know I'll be leaving myself but would be good to have some people in the same boat to meet up with and travel around. I'm defo leaving in July though because thats the earliest I could save up enough money for. xx
Im exactly the same! going out around june/july time due to saving but havent got a clue where to start. was going to start in perth, work for a few mths then head up north for the summer but have noticed ppl on here are either starting in melbourne or sydney! Trying to find a cheap RTW ticket but havent got a clue which sites are legit. popping into STA in a couple of weeks to see what they say. the plan is to go oz for a few mths then onto SE Asia back to oz to get most out of my working visa then NZ and Fiji.
I take it you're planning on working out there as well?
Yeah I'm defo planning to work, that sounds like a good plan I don't ahve a clue what to do my brains still trying to work out where to start wither to stop over at Thialand en route to oz and NZ and figi on way back not sure atall I'm booking my appointment with STA for mid January to go get some information. Xx
haha and mine! its just been buzzing with it all! i would love to do Thailand first but dont think ill have the AUD5000 to get into Oz if i do. Unless i can get extra cash from somewhere.
Just think after we've got it all booked we'll have the dilema of what to take! Think that will stress me out even more! lol! xx
Yeah its one thing after another Lol my heads cabbaged Lol be great if we could meet up cause were all heading their around the same time
sounds like a good idea where uz all from? and becki dont even start me about what to take a take a week to pick an outfit for a night out hahah! xx
Count me in! Im from Birmingham hun. Tell me about it! Im usually the one with the heaviest case when i go away! God knows how ill cope with a backpack! Lol! Glad i found this website now! Everyone seems so friendly! Dont feel as worried about going on my own anymore! xx
Hey guys not sure if il have enough money by march...argh so annoying. Its all adding up now. Do they even check for the 5000 AUD lol, wishful thinkingx
Lol! not sure but knowing my luck it will probably me they stop so im not risking it. Dont think i'll have much more than that when i go x
