Travel Forums Introductions G'day from Australia!

Hi everyone!

My name is Katy and I'm 19yo from Queensland, Australia (that is near the Great Barrier Reef). I've been to quite a number of places already in my life but I'm very eager to continue exploring this huge earth of ours. Not keen on solo travelling, (I'm a bit of a chicken), so if anyone ever wants to hook up for some travelling let me know and if I can afford it and be there I will!

If anyone has any questions about Australia I'm more than happy to help, otherwise I hope that I can find out lots of useful information from all of you on this site.

Hey Katy,

Welcome to TP!
I have not been to Auz yet but have lots of mates there and hope to make it out there in the next few years to come.
Solo traveling is not all that bad though, you get use to it very quick. its so easy to meet other travellers along the way so you arent really that alone.

Be sure to check out the forums and chat room.

Welcome to TP Katy!!!!

You've definitely come to the right place to learn more about travel. Lots of people here are a bit uneasy about solo travel, but many who used to be are now seasoned solo just takes a little encouragement. Check out the various'll see!!!:)

Hi Katy!

Welcome to TP!

I think everyone who considers solo travel comes down with a case of the "chickens" at some point. As Beerman said, check out the forums and you will find several threads about such concerns. Also check out Travel Companions - there's always someone looking for someone else to share in the adventures!

Welcome again and see you around TP! ;)

Hi Katy, good to see you join up. I haven't been to Queensland yet, but may do so in the future. I'm sure it is quite beautiful. I'll be in Victoria, South Australia and Northern Territory in October.
