So yeah I keep posting different things on this site but in all honesty I keep changing my mind which is kinda cool to be fair. The world is my crustacean!

But no, I have now made my mind up and the flight is pretty much booked. Melbourne 15th October then working my way up the East Coast, head through Sydney for Christmas/New Years, up through a couple of sleepy towns, to Surfer's Paradise for a party and a surf, through Brisbane to meet a friend and then just straight up for Cairns and a trip to Thailand before goin home.

I have no idea how long my money will last so I am looking for the cheapest way to travel and sleep. I really don't mind slummin it. After all what other way is there to adventure.

So I need people who have been there before to give me some tips on how to get up this coast in the space of a few months, get a few harvesting jobs on the way, see the sights and just generally have an awesome time on a travellers budget. I will have almost £5000 for the "year out" but don't want to touch the majority of that cos I will want to go to Ibiza when I get home with my mates.

Busy year!

By the way I'm travelling alone, I'm 26 from Cheshire and I am parpin meself.
