Hi everyone!
I'm going to Sydney in Sept! I arrive on the 11th...going totally solo now since my friends dropped out due to lack of funds...
I haven't booked on to Oz Intro or anything like that though? Was just planning on rocking up to a hostel and seeing what happens! Quite nervous about this though!

p-wee1....i got a 'berghaus mule 100' back pack from can use it as a suitcase or it turns in to a backpack, it's really good.

If anyone wants to meet up or is going to be in Sydney at that time and can reccomend a hostel i would muchly appreciate it! :)

Hells bells tee hee.
Oz = Australia
Ozintro = a company/group who organise your first week inc:
Lift from airport
7nights stay at their base camp hostel
Activities everyday
And they organise bank accounts etc
Obviously this facility costs money but is very very popular !

Hi everyone,

I'm travelling NZ (Auckland to Christchurch) from Nov 30th to Jan 9th with a Stray bus and then Oz (Sydney to Cairns) with a greyhound bus pass from Jan 9 to Feb 18.

First time travelling and doing it alone. Leave for SE Asia in 2 weeks - SCARED isn't even the word. Any advice, calming words, wisdom anyone can share? lol or Facebook love so we can share each other's blogs/advice?

Thanking you : )
