Hey everyone,
Just sent application for my working holiday visa, not sure when to expect it back but hoping to book a flight from London to Brisbane for 17th March, luckily I have family there who have offered me a place to stay and a part time job so I won't be totally alone :)

Just looking to chat to people going around the same time, I've never travelled before so will be my first time out of the UK. I didn't know it was possible to be quite so excited and terrified all at the same time, haha!

Kerry :)

Hi Kerry
I'm flying to Brisbane on the 7th March with my mate. Were both from Newcastle looking to meet new people straight away. Were staying at hostel for the first 4 nights to get a bearings with the city and take it from there. Looking to meet plenty of people before moving on to do the 88 days farming so that we can get the 2nd years WHV.

I totally understand the feeling i cannot wait to get out there but at the same time i am terrified as well as i have never been away from England for this amount of time.

Hopefully we can catch up out there.

Elliot:)

Hey Elliot, thanks for your reply :)

I'd love to catch up in Brisbane, I think it would make my mum feel a lot better if I met people doing the same too haha, I'll be staying with my mum's cousin as he lives over there and will be working for him for a while then see where I end up, really excited, I know I'll be fine once I get there but yes, I am terrified, good to know thats normal! :)

Do you have Facebook?

Hi Kerry,

Me and my boyfriend are going out there in August this year and plan on working there for 6 months. A friend of ours has offered us a place to stay until we get settled, so just need to look for jobs ASAP!

Will you still be there then?

Hey! Sorry haven't been on here in a while!
Yes I expect I will still be in Brisbane then, I'm not 100% sure as I plan to travel a little after a few months of work but even if I do I'll be returning there as I'm staying with family :)

Just booked my ticket this week, I leave London on 17th March! So excited! :)
