Hey everyone!

I'm travelling solo too... eeek!

I'm going for the whole year. I land in Sydney on 4th of September. I'd like to get a flat share and then look for work so I can fund myself and then hopefully travel around for a bit. I'd like to go to Perth & Melbourne at some point. I haven't really planned just going to play it by ear.

Does anyone know of places to look for flat shares?

Hopefully see some of you out there! Anyone from Scotland who'll be flying? I'll be on the flight from London 2nd September but getting on in Edinburgh.

I started this post to meet people who would be willing to meet up over there as well so if anyone wants to add me on Facebook the link is below and can talk on there as don't go on here often. Just put in the friend request that it's about Australia :) x

Australia is a good place to visit on September,the start of spring, you could also want to watch the national rugby team by that time.But i guess I'm gonna visit Australia next year.:)

Hi everybody,

I'm a French guy of 23 years old and in three months I'll be graduated of a master degree in engineering and I am planning a 1 year trip in Australia from September this year. I'll leave with the Working Holidays Visa (I've already booked it) and I'm looking for a buddy (20-25 years old) to share experiences with.

Leave to do what?

I've planed to land in Sydney (nothing sure, I don't booked plane yet) and start with Helpx ( : people who invite volunteer helpers to stay with them short-term in exchange for food and accommodation). After that (or at the begining, I don't know yet) I'd like to find a casual job and earn enough money to travel around the Australia.

Who am I?

I'm Mathieu, a french guy of 23 years old who loves travelling. I'm quite fun, love to have a good laugh and easy going.

Why looking for a travel buddy?

I don't like to travel alone ! I think it's better to share experiences with a friend.

If someone's interested, hit me up. Facebook : Mathieu Sarrasin.

Cheers guys
