Hey guys!

Yes I'm travelling alone! Booking my flights next week! Too excited! I have been looking at hostels, seen that wake up one but have you's noticed that there are certain booking restrictions around Xmas / New Years? A few of them are saying you must stay a minimum of 10 -14 days, checking in on the 22nd December! Can't seem to find any availability for the blue parrot! Although not really surprised they are booking up for that time of year! Find something I'm sure!

Have you guys got your flights etc booked yet?
Definitely up for meeting up if you's are arriving around the same time!

Hi Rachel,

Everywhere seems to be fully booked! OR like you said, you need to book 10+ nights to guarantee a hostel!

I booked my flights on Monday and fly out on October 20th!!!!

I've booked my flights through STA and 2 nights in a hostel in Perth when we land!

I think it's a case of searching across the web, I'm sure you will find something!.. But saying that NYE on Bondi Beach sounds pretty epic!

I'd recommend booking a few nights in a hostel before you land!

Hopefully it will fly by!.. Need to start saving now!

Nope, I'm travelling with 1 other guy

Hi everyone,

I'm booking a RTW ticket with STA this week, starting in Asia at the beginning of November and then onto Oz for the beginning of December. Im debating whether to stay in Melbourne for NYE, as I'll be there for Christmas anyway. Anybody heard what its like?

Travelling on my own, so if anybody is about around that sort of time drinking partners are needed!

Hey Gav

I got similar plans too you, on a smaller scale, i got 5 months off work from november 2013, looking too start in south east asia for roughly 4/5 weeks, heading too Australia 5/6 weeks, possibly Melbourne for christmas too catch the 4th test of the ashes series, sydney for the 5th test and making my way up the east coast, then on too new zealand for 5/6 weeks, before heading home....though not sure wether to fly direct to the uk or add a stop somewhere, possibly the usa, if its going too be cheaper as all my flights would be in one direction....i haven't booked anything yet, going too arrange an appointment with Sta travel in the next few weeks too book my flights!!

Hi Mark!

Yea Im hoping to catch the Boxing day test, I just hope I can get a ticket! Im flying out to Bangkok 4th November and will be there for 4 weeks, planning to go to the Full moon party on the 17th and do my PADI whilst Im there, no fixed plans other than that though. We'll have to keep in touch and at least meet up at the MCG for beers, sun and Aussie bashing!
