Hi guys! I'm new here, my name is Julian and I'm a french dude. I'm studying Biology in France and I love to travel!

I've already been to US (twice), thailand, Iceland, and few places in Europe.
I plan to go to Australia for one year with a friend in september, so if someone will do the same and want to travel with buddies, just tell me, maybe we'll meet there!
I'm currently working in France to make some money for my trip but I'll stop working at the end of the month (July) and my departure is only for the 17th of september. So I'm kind of unoccupied in august and I don't really want to do nothing during the whole month. So I had the idea of a small trip (1 or 2 week) during this period, maybe in north africa (morocco, tunisia...) or other as it's not too expensive (cause I need money for australia, remember :) ), this is all still fuzzy but if someone want to travel in august (not necessarily in north africa, I'm open to other ideas :) ) or to meet or chat with a french traveller, well i'm here :)

Hi Julian,

Welcome to Travellerspoint!

I won't be able to join you but I definitely recommend Morocco if you get a chance to visit. I mostly explored Marrakech and Essaouira when I was there but would love to have covered more. Enjoy your time off in August, wherever you go

Hi Julian. Hope you enjoy your time in Australia. Like most visitors you'll probably spend a lot of time on the east coast. Melbourne, Brisbane,Sydney,Gold Coast and Barrier Reef. There is so much to see in the Top End but before the wet season from December/January. There is also a lot to see from Perth in the West. The other Reef,Nigaloo, Rottnest Island, Margaret River wine country and Monkey Mia. Also don't forget the centre Alice Springs and of course Uluru. But also Coober Pedy where most of the population live underground because of the extreme heat. Quite fascinating. Some hidden gems lie in the hinterland of both the Gold and Sunhine coasts in Queensland. Inland northern NSW is also worth a look. If you're in Victoria the historic goldfields of Ballarat and Bendigo really transport you back in time. I guess the message is not to get too absorbed in the cities. There's plenty else to see. Good luck.

Hi guys! Thanks for all these tips and advices!
About Australia, we will land on Perth the 30th of september and we'll surely stay there for a while. We'll buy our van there and if it's possible, work there too. So maybe we'll be staying in Perth for 1-2 month. After that we will start our road trip along the southern coast, then we'll reach Adelaide where we have a friend who live there, then Melbourne from where we'll probably go to tasmania, then Sydney and Brisbane, maybe we'll go to NZ for a while. After we'll continue north to Cairns, then Darwins, then Alice Springs and to finish, Adelaide again where we'll probably sell our van and stuff.

So I think we'll be on Perth on October/November so if there is someone who will be there at the same period, maybe we should meet there :)

hi julian!

maybe you can swing by some south east asian countries - particularly the Philippines with great food, warm people, fabulous beaches with 7107 islands to choose from :)

enjoy your travels! :)
