Hi all. I've finally booked my travels :) I'm flying to Bangkok 30th October then ill be going all over SE Asia till 29th January (probably move my flight back to mid February) then flying from Singapore to Melbourne to spend the rest of my travels in Australia!! I'm gonna be going alone should be a nice challenge one I'm really looking forward to, but if there's anyone who is doing something similar then that's great if love to meet up with new people!!! Soo excited!!!

Hey David

Ahh exciting... you've booked it!!
I'm going to Australia in January but now thinking about leaving in oct/nov and travelling SE Asia but a lil nervous about going alone!! How much money are you taking with you to fund this part of your trip?? And are you doing any tours or just meeting people in hostels?

Hi Jennifer

I'm not at all nervous, I've been told not to worry about going alone as soon as you'll arrive you'll meet people who are like minded doing exactly the same thing as you.i will be doing tours hopefully I ain't looked to much into all that at the moment tho. I think I'll find which way to go about it by word of mouth of other travellers who are there. I think I'll have around £8000 saved dunno how far that will get me but I'll be doing some work in oz anyway.

I can't believe I've actually booked it :)

Where are you flying to in oz? You should do SE Asia to:)

I've bought my whv for oz but not my flight yet! I've read on a few threads that you need around £800 to £1000. Yeah I don't really like planning things too much and just see what happens!!
I'll probably fly into Sydney! Im hoping to stay in oz for 2years. What are your plans in oz?
Which company have you booked through?

I have family in Perth as well so been invited to stay with them at some point. I'm not bothered what work I do in oz.. I work at bank here but also done a lot of bar and waitressing so hopefully should find something! I'll also do my 3months farm kinda work to get me 2nd year visa! What work are you planning on doing? And how long are you spending in oz? X

Cool,it's a big bonus! Well also thinking of farm/fruit picking kind of work. Also here there's so much work making roads/motorways which is basically what I do here so that would be good! I'll be staying till the end of October well that's when my return flight is but who knows I may fall in love with the place and never come back. Well at least I now no someone who will be in oz while I'm there we could catch up :) x

Hmm.. Don't think I'll be doing that kind of work! :) haha
October... That's not very long! I reckon you definitely will stay longer!
I hoping I really love it there as would like to stay as long as poss ... The UK ain't exactly the best place to be at the mo! I need sunshine!! :)
