Hi Nat,

Sounds good. I'm the same if I don't do it now it may never happen! Can't wait to have the money together and get booking things. Oz Intro looks like a great experience to. Hopefully we will meet people there.

Where about's you from? Have you ever been Oz before?

Hi Leah,

Yes definitely, join their group on facebook coz then you find out who's going similar time to you. I know it's so exciting, can't wait to start booking things :)

I'm from Rotherham near Sheffield. How about you?

No i've never been to Os before but wanted to for so long, so thought i'd get there for NY, looking forward to a fun stop off on the way too. Have u been before?

No I haven't been before, got family in Adelaide that I could stop into on my travels though. I hadn't even thought of stop offs.......oh god your putting more ideas in my head to plan lol!.

One thing I've always wanted to do is sky dive!! My cousin done it in New zealand and looks amazing.....Not sure i'll be so confident when i'm there lol, but got to do it!!! xx

Haha!! Only a day stop over coz it's a long flight isn't it so thought i'd either stop at Singapore or America.

Ahhh Essex :) That's cool you have family in Adelaide, i want to go there, it's suppose to be really nice city. My uncle lives in Canada and he travelled so he's giving me lots of tips and my cousin went to Oz last year and said it was so cool, so they are giving me lots of tips.
My sis n bro in law used to live in NZ few years ago so they a helping me plan coz i'd like to do NZ after.

OMG I wouldn't dare sky dive.

When are you heading out to Oz? x

Its good you know people that have travelled before that you can go to for advice. My cousin done Oz and NZ so going to speak to him. He camped for a night at fraser island, said it was great! There's so much to see over there!!

Planning on going around October, depending on whether I've saved enough! One of my friends just got back from a year travelling, he had five countries to see within the year and ended up spending 7 months in sydney!! lol he got a job and flat share and didn't want to leave! (I'm hoping this means we are going to best place!! :) )

New Zealand looks amazing!!!!! ahhh I'm so excited and still have near on a year lol!

Hey Leah :)

I'm planning to go to New Zealand at the end of this year, still trying to work out details and save up.

Still hoping to find others that are making a similar trip as it will be nice to do with company

Hi Tom,

Sounds similar to me then, have you made any plans yet or getting the money together first?

Where you from?

Hi Leah,

I have started doing both really, I have sorted out a plan with some friends of mine that are currently doing this sort of thing to get an idea. So I have an understanding of what to do for accommodation and work. So I'm still looking into it as well as saving.

From Worthing (near Brighton)

Hey everybody :)

I have the same plan as the most people in this threat .

Thinking of leaving for NZ in August/September and would love to meet some cool people doing the same.

I don´t have plans yet just want to see as muuuch as possible

And to be honest I´m kind of afraid to travel alone... and with more people its always more fun...

So it would be nice to build like a connection before and maybe travel together
