That's not to bad I have a 4hour layover in Beijing so that should be fun!!! what time do you get in to Sydney?
I don't think anyone looks forward to been on a plane that long if they do I think they maybe a little crazy!
Haha that's why everyone wants to go to or have an authentic aussie barbi just so you can pretend like your on home & away or neighbours I no I do!!!!!

I think there's a 24 hour reception so hopefully checking in early won't be a problem. Haha yeah same! Are you gonna be working out there? xx

Thats descent 24hr reception. I have a working holiday visa so when money runs out i can get a job to fund the adventure, i did hear there are always loads of jobs for backpackers so hopfully it should be easy enough to get a job. What about you?? Have you got your backpack yet?? Im trying to decided which one to get and how big xx

I'm hoping to get a job ASAP, last thing I want is to run out of money... But yeah there should be loads of stuff available, bar work, fruit picking and so on so I'm not too worried. Yeah I ordered a 50L backpack. Hopefully that's big enough, I'm travelling light as I figure I can get most stuff in Oz so I'm sure it'll be okay xx

Hi Guys

Just been reading your posts. I too am going to Sydney - I'm flying out on the 9th Feb though so a little behind you. What are your plans? You heading up the East Coast?
This is the maddest thing I've ever done. Thought about it 4 weeks ago and decided - why not?!

Hi Alex

Haven't really got any plans set in stone, but I probably will head up the east coast eventually. Sydney looks a pretty awesome place so I might hang around there for awhile if I can get work. What are your plans? Katie I'm probably gonna try and get a job which takes up a few hours each week, so it leaves plenty of time to live the wild life haha xx
