Hi :-)

I'm Sheridan and I was just wondering if there are many backpackers around Perth in June time. I'm a girl in my early 20's travelling alone and a bit nervous about flying all the way from Manchester (England) to Perth. I'm flying with Qatar Airways and stopping in Doha, I've heard bad things so if anyone else choose this route some advice about what to expect there- I've heard horror stories about the airport at Doha and missing transfer flights. Any advice or tips from more experienced backpackers would be great.

Hey Sheridan,
Awesome that you decided to go travelling, one of the best things you can do! I've been travelling for two months an been to a number of places in Oz but I'm currently in Brisbane!
Hoping to get a job but if doesn't go well I'm flying over to Perth around 25th June because there's plenty of work.
With regards to Qatar an Doha airport just make your you regularly keep check of the timetables incase of terminal changes!
I flew in from London to Adelaide via Dubai, I found were my gate was to my connection flight then shopped around the airport!

What's your travel plans? Any ideas? X

Thanks for the advice. I'm sure shopping in the airport will calm my nerves
How's Oz been for you? Where have you been? I was wanting to go down south towards Adelaide but think I might just stop in Perth for a while as my cousin (who lives in Perth) tells me there are loads of jobs going for travelers and some good paid ones as well. So think I might stay there for a month or two and save some money then go travelling around a bit and hopefully do Sydney and east coast.

Have you worked out there yet? have you found it easy to find work?

Sorry about the hundred and one questions.

Sheridan :)

hi Charlotte,

Yeah like you said Doha wasn't too bad at all. I'm staying in Mindarie in Perth for the time being trying to find a job to bump up my budget to go over to the east coast. How you finding Oz? How much longer are you here for? have you met many people on your travels?
