Hi people,
This is my first time in writing something like this so take it easy on me, im 20 years of age and today is the day that I have finally booked my flights to sydney landing on the 6th april wooooo! I have never been to Australia but the main attraction for me going is the country!

Has anyone been before who could offer general advice and guidance? Im very nervous about heading out, work is on my mind as i really need to find any form of work ( who doesnt ) and also if there is any fellow brits out there or heading out around a similar time, who would like to meet up would be helpful!

Speak to you all soon
Danny :)
