Hi i am leaving for Sydney on the 23rd August 2005 and am looking for like minded easy goin travel companions. I am 22 Male from manchester and i am planning to go to syndey for a few months then onto melbourne brisbane and cairns along with other trips like frasier island etc and other stuff along the way. I have booked with a company called workandtravel on a group charter flight but would be good to hear from people with similar plans who are looking for travel buddies. I just wanna spend all the money i take and make the most of my time out there having fun, whilst avoiding sharks and spiders!!!
