oh right the tax number and bank account should be cool then. Regarding the travel insurance, I bought one for around the world incase I go anywhere else for about £160 ish i think it was for the year. So thats okay. But it depends on the excess you dont mind paying on the policy really. No its not long at all, cant wait!!!! I am starting my adventure with a mate but we may seperate depending on differing plans. you?

oh right, my tax number will get sorted in the starter package so dont no anything about that yet. No money into bank yet as again sort it out via starter package when i get to Melbourne.

that is a shame that your mate bailed out! But i'm sure you will still enjoy yourself and find new mates :)

I have added you on facebook (hope i got the right person) x
