Hi! I'm also taking the plunge. I leave in February on my own too and will work my way up the east coast, I want to see the sites and do a bit of work!

I am going for at least 6 months.

Meeting people will be easy, the hardest part is taking the plunge and going ahead with it. You have one life, and what is life if we dont push ourselves and try and further ourselves? :) But you will meet people on the same path as you, people who are also headed out alone and wanting to explore. I am going out on a Working Holiday Visa. It's fairly easy to get a VISA really, and flights are only about £700 for feb at the moment.

If you have any other questions please feel free to message me or add me on Facebook! :)

Hey Jordan

From what I've heard Adam's right, meeting people will be really easy, considering everyone else is doing the same thing as you. I'm also travelling by myself, and I'll be in Sydney in January! My advice would be to just take the plunge, book your flights and get out there! Every single person I know who's travelled in Australia has absolutely loved it!

Hey Jordan, no worries! getting the bottle is the hardest thing, but once you do it, you feel like you can take on the world! I have sent you a PM with some details in! :) x

Hey dan

Thanks I just need reassurance I'm not making the wrong decision! Enjoy your travels and hopefully I won't be too far behind you.
