So, I'm the type of person who can't sit still for longer than five minuets, and its the same with my job.
I am looking into a couple of options.
1) travel down Route 66, hire a car, stay in cheap motels and sight see the attractions on the way.
2) go to Australia, get a place to stay, get a job that will get me by, such as a bar job, then explore Australia.
This will be this summer, so if you are interested in either of these options, give us a message.
Your option 2 is my plan for september. Although option 1 looks pretty epic.
im travelling alone too. pretty nervous but so excited.
Oh wow, what's your plan, like have you got anything arranged yet?
Well I haven't booked anything yet. Applying for my visa & booking flights at the end of the month (when I get paid ) but my plan is to fly from London to Sydney. Stay there & work until jan. then travel round.
I'm looking for some company at the minute. I get bored on my own.
What about you??? You decided anything yet?
Sounds like a good plan. So will you just sort out accommodate when you get there?
Nah I haven't fully decided yet, I've been looking around these different programmes where they help you find jobs and that, but I'm thinking to just do it myself, as its like £700 to go on the programme, that only covers your first week accommodation and then they help you find a job, but like I said, just thinking of doing that my self.
i might book my first week in a hostel in sydney. then maye look for an apartment to rent or something.
yeah i was looking at ultimateOz, its good that they sort everything out for ya, like bank acounts etc but its like £800. its probably cheaper doing it yourself. Although its a good way to meet other travellers.
my plans are still really up in the air.
I am planning on the classic "road trip"
I am looking to go mid June or July. I want to travel anyway around the USA. By car staying in motels and such. Also a trip out to Hawaii as in love with the place.
It's daunting but like you i get itchy feet and can't just sit around and hate the 9-5.
That would be my plan also, in that first week just stay in a hostel, try find an appartment and job.
I havnt started looking at appartment prices yet, do you know a rough idea on how much they will be, or are you waiting till you get out there?
If I did chose this option, I would be going July time also.
I have been doing some research, and people say that 3-4 weeks is a good timescale for this. How long are you putting aside to do this?
The car companies are pretty cheap to hire a car, the biggest cost would come out of the petrol, as like you said motels along the route is the best option.
yeah, i think the Hostels are great for helping you find your feet really.
Definately gonna look for an apartment pretty quickly though. I havent properly looked at prices yet but they look pretty resonable at a glance. Once your working it'll be easier though.
Im headed out in septemeber. when you looking at going??
