Hey there, I'm looking to start my traveling in Jan 2013 - want to visit Fiji and NZ first but would be looking to go onto Oz after this, so maybe mid Feb time. What are your plans? Are you looking to get work out there?

It's my first time traveling so would be awesome to find someone doing similar things as I am or even to meet up for a week or 2!

Hey Chrissie,

That's so exciting booking ur tickets, I have an appointment tomorrow with STA to get some ideas and prices and then will prob book in a couple week. Are you booking a one way ticket? Yeh makes sense to work out there if u can afford the time, I've only got 4/5 months off work so just traveling (saving extra hard atm tho!!) How long u thinking of spending in Oz?

Sophie, that's lovely that you're going with your boyfriend - I do wish I had someone to go with so that we could plan everything together as that's half the fun is organising it all!

Are you thinking of working over there Kate?

Sounds like there are so many people going over there, the more I talk to people the less nervous I get as realise there are so many other people in the same boat!!

Am thinking I'll book the first couple nights in hostels whenever I land somewhere but then after that I think I'll just go with the flow :)

Chels xx
