Hey Everyone :)

Leaving for Australia on the 7th December but just want to know what everyone's taking with them in regards to phones, laptops, ipads etc. I currently have an iphone but thinking of maybe getting a cheaper phone without a contract & getting an ipad for skyping family and using the internet etc. Would I be better taking a laptop? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I would take a cheap phone and get a pay-as-you-go sim when you get to Oz and wouldn’t take an iPad or Laptop. Every hostel you stay in will have internet and skype facilities – so that won’t be a problem.

I found it annoying how many people would sit around in the common area of a hostel not talking to anyone, but instead playing on their iPad etc, it is a barrier to meeting people!
