Hi Everyone

Im Claire from Dublin,I'm 26 and I am going to Sydney for 1 year leaving at the end of December. I am heading over by myself so was looking to meet some people that are going over around the same time.

Get in touch :)

Hi Claire

I'll be in Sydney at the start of January! Are you staying in Sydney long-term or travelling around a bit. I'm also heading out there by myself which is seems a bit daunting as it's my first time travelling, can't wait to get out there though!

Hi Dan
I don't have any solid plans yet but I wanted to stay in Sydney for a bit and then look at travelling around after awhile.
I haven't booked my flights yet-still plucking up the courage. It's very scary.
Where are you from?

That's pretty much my plans to be honest. I've got a hostel booked in Sydney for a week but after that I'm just going to go with the flow and pick up work wherever I can. Aha yeah I know the feeling! Trust me just suck it up and take the plunge! Once you've got it over and done with you'll feel much better, I literally booked everything in the space of about an hour. I'm English, I'm from Eastbourne which is in the South East, dunno if you've heard of it haha!

Claire bear & Rachel Tess - I am looking at flights just now and its so much cheaper to fly from Dublin than Glasgow so I may be tempted to get the ferry over and fly from Dublin too ;)

I am soooo excited :)

Hey guys (28/m here), just gonna jump in on this one! I'm in a similar position. Im heading over to Syndey in September, fist time going to Oz. Although im going over on my own i have loads of mates over there so thankfully have a place to stay when I arrive while i set my self up. I have no plans of where i will be going once i arrive so will be going with the flow.... Ill be there a few weeks by the time it seems that alot of you above are arriving but it would be well up for meeting new people and maybe help out if i can ! ..... im nervous about it all too but CANT WAIT!!! :):(;)
