hi everybody!

sounds like everybody is doing something pretty similar timewise! My Oz flight from Singapore is on 16th October at the moment but can always change it if I want more/less time going around Asia.

Not sure which way to head once I arrive, but like most, thinking about heading to Sydney for the New Year too. Looking to head out to NZ/Fiji/Hawaii and USA my working holiday visa expires too; not sure whether to do 1 or 2 years yet, so will just see how I feel once I get there.

feel free to drop me a message on here, or add me on Facebook (link in profile). Hope to chat to some of you soon! :)

Hey man,

I'm great. Just in the process of saving as much as I can for Oz. So I haven't booked anything, thinking of doing a bit of travelling hop on hop off bus, hostels, partying for the first few months.

And then probs settle into a job, got one in Melbourne with my dads friend but want to do a bit of discovering first.

What about you? Whats your plans? :)

Just really the same man, saving as much cash as possible, would hate to go over and not have money to do anything.

Was planning on flying to Perth then start travelling from there until the money gets low and look for work then. Looked on website and there seems to be alot of jobs just general labour work/ farm hands. Would try get something like that. Only thing I really want is to be in Sydney for NYE (so does half this forum by the looks of things, so no doubt will meet people).

Thats class youve already got something lined up for when your over there!! Ive got a mate whos there now, so probably try and catch up with him at some point see if he know the best places for work and stuff.:)
