Hey everyone

So I'm looking for a travel buddy for a trip to Australia this end November/December, starting in Sydney then working up the coast.

Have my 12 month visa granted and can't wait to get out there now! just looking for someone to hopefully share flight and more with as quite daunting as a girl alone!

Good grammar and sense of humour a must :) (Sounds like a lonely hearts ad...)

Cheers!
Lisa

Hi Lisa

Im looking for someone to travel Australia with starting from November too!

I'm an outgoing girl but when it comes to traveling alone it sounds quite scary. Everyone I have spoken to says you meet people out there but I would rather know atleast one person before leaving!

Hey Vicki

Thanks for your message!

Where will you be flying from?

What's your plan for Aus, start in Sydney and work up the east coast? I can't wait, but same as you, but daunting to go alone!

Have you booked flights yet?

Yip im all booked up until 3rd January. Start at a place called 790 on George just cos its closest to the train station and I dont think ill be in any shape to go hunting for my hostel after a 26hr flight haha.

Then ive booked a week at a place in Bondie Beach and then 2 weeks over xmas and NYE in the city. Have you booked anything yet?

The east coast is amazing! I travelled down from Cairns last year, you will love it :)

Hi guys, i have just booked WHV coming from Dublin, il be landing in Brisbane the 03 December... Making my way down towards Melbourne via Sydney for Christmas. Cant wait, but yeah the thought of going alone can be quite nerve racking, If anyone is available to hook up and go for a drink or do a bit of traveling together that would be great :)
