Hey guys, I'm heading to Sydney on June 1st and I was wondering if anyone is going around the same time?

I'm travelling alone, and I'm super daunted! haa

Never travelled alone before/been on holiday on my own before haha, So going for a year is pretty scary! aha

Would be rad to meet other people going or hear stories from other people who have been or advice etc! aha

Cheers!

Hey Jacob, I'm heading out about the same time as you,I haven't booked my flight yet but I will soon I have my visa but that's about it I have no idea
What I'm going to do When I'm there apart from the fact that I will have to get a job. it's pretty scary going on your own! Xx

Hey Danielle, I booked my flight through STA travel and got a pretty good deal!
Got a one way flight and my Visa sorted, so I guess that's it really! aha

I've saved up enough so that I don't have to work for the first few months, I'll mostly be sticking to bar work though (It's what I do best! haa)

Are you going out on your own too? xx

If you don't mind me asking how much are you taking I will only have around £3000, yeah I'm going on my own I'm hoping the excitement will take over my nerves. How old are you? Xx

Yeah I'm taking around the same 3000-3500!

I'm sure the excitement will take over the nerves!

I'm 20 at the moment, I'll be 21 when I'm heading over though! xx

Hey, I should be flying out to sydney around the end of july/start of august all being well for 12 months. I'm getting kind of nervous planning it all tbh aha. If you guys are going out around June keep in touch and let me know what's it like. If you're still around Sydney we'll get a drink :)
