Hello everyone,

I'm new to here. I just wanted to ask everyone's advice. I a planning to travel to Oz in September, maybe with a stop in Dubai and Bangkok before I arrive in Sydney. However, I am getting so impatient that I would go in April...the wait is killing me!! The only thing stopping me is that I have Ibiza booked in June and I will sill have pay in full even If I drop out. So I may as well go. Nothing booked as yet but I check everyday and flights are quite reasonably priced for th April and August time inc stop-offs.

I am planning on getting a WHV, but by trade I am a mental health nurse. My plan is to go out with a WHY then sign up to the Australian nurses council when I am over there then look for a mental health nurse job mid 2014 for sponsorships. I know it won't be a problem getting a job as a mental health nurse. I am worried about getting a job as anything else during my one year of adventure and travelling around OZ? What options are there I am aware that farm work and bar work are options anything else? Are jobs easy to come by? How much do you think i would need to be comfortable as initial savings once flights and visa and insurance are paid for?

I'm scared to go on my own but if I wait for someone to come with me I'll be waiting forever

Is anyone else thinking of travelling July/August/September time? Who is also anxious and would like a friend for company :) ill bite your handoff for the support.

Hey there Choley555,

I'm definitely interested in travelling to Oz around this time. My sister lives in Sydney so want to catch up from her and also to get far away from here as possible!

Wow that's great, least you will have someone to visit in oz. Would you be up for dubai and Thailand before oz?

When you are in oz are you planning to work and how long would you like to be there for?

Where r u from? I'm originally from Liverpool but i now live in nottingham. I'm 25 years old, but will be 26 when u travel.

How do you feel about having a travel buddy? X
