its great to see lots of other people will be travelling around the same time. Friends who have travelled before have said that hooking up with others was easy but i still feel a bit daunted and still want to arrange some company before i hit the road, Irish or otherwise.. so far i have a nice amount saved however its dwindling again, (tickets for Electric picnic were £222.50, car trouble etc.. ) anyway the summer and saving should ensure a good amount to travel. looking forward to doin a road trip when in Oz, which hopefully wont break the bank. Fruit picking doesnt sound so bad if your not knee deep in rain and mud and it ensures a second years grace in the country too. Havent even applied for my visa but not anticipating any problems. If flights are booked fairly early there reasonable enough so may make some definite plans and dates soon.
anyway hope that answered a few questions.

Hey Ladies and I assume Gentlemen,

Ive my one-way flight to Bangkok booked for 26thJune - counting the days and pennies at this stage. Spendin nearly 4months in SEA, thru Thailand,Laos,Vietnam and Cambodia. I got the flight for €450 (thru Dublin Via Zurich to Bangkok. Then Im flying from Singnapore to Jakarta (Bali for a week) for €80 and then Jakarta to Sydney for € between and web its less than €800 to Sydney

Ill be hitting Sydney around mid-late October - heading with a dublin chap that I got chatting to on here - always good to have someone to leave with but ya will get to know people very quickly when u go on tours etc

best of luck ladies anyways - and any questions about SEA dont hesitate to ask as ive spent every working (cough cough) minute lookin htru treks n routes thru SEA

Hi all,

Just reading your posts and seem to be in the same boat. Travelling by myself as my friends are all settled with mortgages, so I figure its now or never, best to go when I have no finanicial responsiblilties. I hoping to hit Melbourne in September after a 3 month stint in the U.S. and New Zealand. I will also be on a budget, (my ssia isn't going to strecth as far as I had hoped, so just applied for working holiday visa today, hopefully doing a bit of casual work will keep me in instant noodles for a while. :) Would definately like to arrange to meet people might ease the nerves a bit, knowing I'm not completely alone.

All the best,

P.s. For anyone thinking of hitting S.E. Asia, definately go for it, I was in vietnam and cambodia for around 5 weeks last year and it was deadly and dirt cheap.
