heading out in November on a one way ticket. wanting to get any advice possible as going it alone and never done it before. how much everyone is taking, the best hostels, favourite city's, things to do and possibly meeting someone on here who could meet up with out there for a drink and to explore

Im planning on going out also alone at the start of 2014, Im going to start off in Sydney as it seems to be lively with nightlife and beaches/work at that time of year. Im going to try save up about £5,000 as that makes over $7,000 dollars over there! And going to travel up the east coast after Sydney :)

I wish I could go for NYE but i don't think i'll have enough money saved :( But yeah I think alot of people will be there around that time so there shouldn't be any problems meeting people and finding work :)
