Hi guys

I'm 25, f and originally from Liverpool. Currently living in Nottingham

I plan to travel from manchester to Dubai, on to Bangkok and the Oz with a Working Holiday Visa for a year down under: travelling, working and being adventurous.

I've began saving, I've made plans to sell my car sorted out my finances got lots of overtime on the go.

I would love someone to come with me on my travels. I have done so much research:I've been so close many of times to booking the flights but I just thought I'd give this forum a go to see if anyone had a similar plan.

Basically I would like to spend 10 days in Dubai, then on to Bangkok for a month I have a friend who lives here who I would like to visit and explore the sights with, then Oz for around a year on a WHV landing in Sydney.

The flights are around £600.00. I'm planning to hostel it and just have fun fun fun.

If you are interested or have similar plans that we could incorporate together let me know...

You only live once p...but if you do it right once is enough!!!!

Hello i cant send any more PM today as i "have reached my limit" How rude.

Sorry for that! We put in that limit after spammers started mass-PM-ing everyone in sight. New members (people who've registered on the site in the last few days) can only send a limited number of PMs each day. That limit will increase every day. Sucks that you ran into it, though. :| I'll point the admins to this; see if they can maybe bump it up a notch.
