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??

Yeah, I've been working in bars in Manchester for the past 3 years almost so it's the easiest work for me to find. Doing my RSA course online then I can serve alcohol over in AUS. :)

What sort of work would you be looking for?? X

That’s the thing that is worrying us. I work as a conveyancing assistant in a solicitors, so ive never done any bar work before. People say that you can still get hired with no experience, but still a little worried. x

Yeah, a friend of mine went over there with no job training at all, like she came out of college and went. She got a bar job where they trained her up. I'd like to think they look at your personality more than experience. They must get loads of backpackers looking for jobs with no training.

They have admin jobs as well. X

Ah that’s made us feel a little bit better over it then. 

Nah I don’t want to do a job like admin, I rather a relaxed/casual job just to get some dollar to get us by. x
