Hi everyone :)

I have recently posted a thread about travelling in sept/oct but my date has moved to Jan :) I'd feel better enjoying Xmas at home then leaving after Xmas. I'm thinking of starting in Sydney. Anyone doing the same?

Hi :)

I'm just looking into the possibility of it at the minute! Are you planning on working over there or is just a holiday?

Working and a holiday, WHV. Going for a year :) so excited :)

Cool!

I'm open to book anytime like but I don't really know much about it! January would be the perfect time for me to go though.

Have you organised everything already? visa/ flights etc?
How much money do you think you will need?

Thanks :)
Paddy

No as I am in the middle of applying for my nursing registration as it takes a long time. Once that comes back then I will do the rest. I'm gonna save 6000 (hopefully). What about you?

Oh so your going to be working as a nurse out there?

I'm just worried about going out there and not being able to find a job. I have a degree but its useless ha and have plenty of experience in retail but I don't really know how useful that would be out there. I don't suppose you know?

To be honest I have no idea sorry. Yeah I'm lucky my degree is in nursing. I'm gonna work for an agency. If I want to I can work in any state in Australia for any length of time from a day to 6 months or so. Not bad really :)
