I'm from Indonesia. I have been to some Asian countries but it wasn't my experience as a backpacker. I used to work on a cruise ship.
I had a chance to save some cash and now I wanna go to Australia in March as a backpacker but this is gonna be my first time. Please share with me some of your first time experiences going around as backpackers, especially in Australia. To be honest, I'm afraid that maybe its hard to get along with people from outside Asia, eventho I have some western friends, but please tell me how to make friends with most people in Australia, about good places to see around WA, and how much you think I should spend for accomodations, etc?
