Hi Everyone!

I have decided recently (within a few days, cuz I'm crazy like that ) that I want to travel to Australia at the start of 2013 (this depends on when my visa comes through etc..).

I think I may be be going at this alone..I am currently living in Austria with my boyfriend, there is nothing really here for me though as I don't speak fluent German unfortunately, so depending on how things go over Christmas & New Year will depend on how soon I get my *bum* to Australia!

I have never wrote on one of these *forum* things before so excuse me if I sound a bit like a weirdo :-D..

Sooo any advise for me? Going alone? Money? Anything!?

Looking on making a nice little community of traveller friends to share some crazy experiences with ;)!

hey there !!

awesome choice to travel to australia i live in melbourne, Victoria the sporting capital i highly suggest a visit here
but also surfers paradise Queensland if you love the beaches that is an awesome place !!!!

perth Western australia is also fantastic

i wish i could help on the solo bit as im heading to toronto in march 2013 on my own and first time overseas super excited !!!! but if your anything like me i don't think you have an issue

depending on how long your traveling for, the rates ATM are $1000 euro = about $1200 australian ( this is a guestimation )

im hoping that helps!!! hope the planning goes well !!

mmmm not sure on yoga studios but there are plenty about i'll ask some hockey friends of mine that do yoga and find out the best cheap ones for you

yeah hoping to just go up and experience the travel as i haven't been overseas yet and its been my goal for a long time just recently decided to get my butt to it and was hoping to see an NHL game but likely hood of that is slim but a game would be great or to skate outside would be awesome!!!!

Hey, I'm travelling alone to Canberra, in march, I'm only staying for 2weeks as I'm a teacher in the uk and can only travel in holidays!!! Backpacking sounds great but I love my job too much to leave haha! :)

If you're under 30 you can get student visa and work - fruit picking, telemarketing, waiting, bar work - the usual. There's plenty of agencies looking for staff. Australia is expensive though I wouldn't live anywhere else. And Melbourne is my choice. Don't worry about travelling solo. We're a friendly mob.:):)
