Hi Everyone,
I'm a 22 year old female from Liverpool, UK. I am finishing university in July 2011 and looking to start travelling either August or September. I am planning on applying for a Working Visa for Australia so I can stay there up to 12 months and earn some money if thats something I want to do. However, at either the start or end of my trip I want to spend around 6 weeks in South East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos) but I don't fancy going there alone so I'm looking for a possible travel buddy whose plans are similar to mine. Once in Australia I plan to visit relatives in Brisbane but also spend a considerable amount of time in Melbourne and Sydney too.

Please reply if you are travelling around the same time.

Zara :)

Hi Zara.
Sounds like an exciting trip that you have planned. I hope to be around and about S.E. Asia some time around then, so we may bump into one another. Should be leaving very early Septemeber with 2 friends (a guy and girl). However we are planning traveling our way to S.E. Asia, starting in Scandinavia, through Russia, Mongolia, China etc. After exploring S.E. Asia we too will be heading for Australia for a little while with the intention of finding some work to replenish our funds! So there is every chance your paths may cross along the route!

Take care and hopefully talk to you soon!
