Hellllllo :)

I'm going to oz on October 9th by myself (ekkkkk) for around a year depending on the money i can get together and judging on how easy it is to find a job out there.

And was keen to know if any other solo travellers were going out roughly the same time as I'm terrified!!! (In a good way of course)

I fly into Sydney and will spend a good few months out there and spend the rest of the year exploring and travelling the rest of Australia.

Also if anyone has any advice or tips on finding work over there, good hostels ect let me know :)

Liz xoxo

So much of the world to see and you're spending a year in Australia?

I'm going travelling for around 3-4 years, so going to get some cash during that time!

Hiya Matt

I know I cannot wait, cant stop thinking about it!

Are you going with friends or by yourself also? How much do you plan to take with you?

Strange to think of spending Christmas on a beach but will be amazing :)

Yupp that's the PLAN... So it may or may not change... Either way spending a whole year in Australia would be amazing!!

Hey lizzie,

How ru? Just read your post, I'm travelling to sydney on 18th October and will be staying there until after the new year, hoping to get job. After that I want to see as much of Australia as I can preferably heading up the east coast but I'm flexible with plans since as I too I'm travelling alone (so exciting). We'll definitely have to meet up when I get to syd :)

Not sure how much I am taking but will have some back up savings, to be fair I need to and want to get money in order to support myself without using my savings.

Please feel free to PM me, would love to meet up with people over there.

Yes, Christmas on Bondi beach! :)
