Hey guys,

My name is Carla, I'm 23 & I am heading to Thailand on the 13th of feb 2013, i'll stay in Thailand for 3 weeks & then I arrive in Sydney on the 10th of March!

I'm also travelling on my own, my friends are all doing there own things so when it came to the crunch I just decided to go for it and book it! I booked in on saturday and I actually felt sick & excited at the same time

I'm from Ireland/Dublin by the way :) I would love to get intouch with some of you and it would be great to meet up along the way on all our travels

Would love to hear from you guys about all your plans :)

Hi Carla,

I am looking to do exactly the same as you! Thailand for probably only a week or two, then start my year in OZ in March.

Are you thinking of doing any introduction type weeks or just winging it?

Hi Joshua / Lydia Jane,

Well I'm going to Thailand for 3 weeks so I'm pretty much winging it fro 3 weeks which to be honest I'm quite nervous about, I'm thinking of heading to Phi Phi and get the ferry to a couple of the other islands:)

I arrive in Sydney on the 10th of March so my plan is to do a group thing for a week called Oz Intro (you guys should look it up) basically it s group thing full of activities and your first weeks is sorted like where your staying and all that!!

I'm very nervous about going but I think it's a once in a life time thing and I will really regret it in years to come if I don't do it!!

I would love to hear more about your plans Joshua & Lydia Jane & anyone else who is planning on setting off:)

Hi Carla,

Ive already looked into ozintro and ive decided that im going to do that also and probably around the same time actually. Ive also looked at using thaintro (which is ozintro for thailand) for the week that I want to do in Thailand.

I totally agree that its scary but very exciting. Ive been toying over university and travel for a while now and travel is definitely what I want to do.

Hi lydia,

Its good to see another person looking to go March next year! Were gonna have a right army by the time we go over!

Hey guys :)

thanks for the tip about the oz intro definitely think I'm going to be going for that!

do you guys know when your going to be booking it as it says it fills up fast and i dont want to leave it to late to get a place??

also have you planned your routes or anything yet? my main concern at the moment is saving up enough money lol how much do you think youll be taking?

Hi lydia-jane

Ill probably just book it when i have the money, in the order of Visa-Ozintro-flights. I wouldnt worry too much about spaces, theres still spaces for september this year and maybe even earlier so i think we'll have plenty time.

Im not planning any routes yet, or anything at all for that matter. The only thing I know that im doing is the 3 months farm work for the second year visa. In terms of money im just taking everything I can save!

Hope this helped :)
