And I thought I was the only one who's friend bailed! I was supposed to go with a Canadian friend of mine to his sister's wedding last August and the wedding was called off! So what do I do? Apply for my W&HV! Forget a month, I'm goin' for a year! However, I'm also going alone now. I'm only 10 days away from my flight and it is a bit nerve wracking, hoping I find a job and make friends. I'll be landing in Sydney on the 12th if anyone will be in the area as well. I've been looking at Sydney Central YHA.
