Yeah, planning on working in Oz. No way I'll have a load of money left to survive after 2/3 months working my way down from Thailand! Sorting out my visa (probably gonna do a years WHV) is next on the list after the plenty of injections I need to get! Planning on getting to Sydney for NYE and then working for a bit. When is it that you're heading out? And as for Bali, I've heard the surf's good too, so I think I'm gonna put aside 2 or 3 weeks for that to get the best experience. How are all your plans coming together? I've only got 6 weeks til I leave; definately doesn't feel real yet! x

Nice, I bet your excited! I dont leave for another 11 months, but im still super focused on it. I plan on doing the same with the working holiday visa, but your right, after some time in Thailand and Bali, I might need to work a bit to regain some financial ground. When is this full moon party? is it just once a year? Where do you think you will be in a years time? still in OZ? I need a travelling partner too!!!

Full moon party is every full moon, so every month. They have half moon parties as well every month, which apparently are still heaving but the full moon is the one that everyone flocks to and thousands of people just party on the beach at Ko Phangan. Apparently it's a must do for every traveller.. look into it for sure!!
Ah man, I know, sucks not being sure if I've got a travelling partner yet, mine still hasn't found out if he's got the job he applied for so at the moment I'm not sure if I'm going solo or if I will have someone with me.. which is daunting. To be honest I haven't got a clue where I'll be in a years time, my intention was to just do Thailand to Bali, then I added Oz for New Years and now I've got a years WHV and a possible job lined up so my plans keep growing! I'd love to say in a year I'll still be in Oz and we could meet for a drink or 4! I only decided to leave 2 months ago, how come you're being super organised and not leaving for another year!?
Gosh sorry for the essay! x

Awesome! I have to check these events out, Im loving the sound of the full moon party. I hear its wild ;). Im being very organized because I want to do this right so there is little to no emergencies along the way, which is probably inevitable, but we will see. I currently have a pretty solid career going at the moment, but I just got hit by this travelling bug about 4 months ago and then i found this site and was hooked in right away. I want to see the world before Im tied down with too many things, explore countries I would of never of thought going to. I like to party, but I really want to explore stuff off the beat'n trail and backpack with minimal luggage. It would be rad if you could share your experiences along the way, thats if you get wifi ;) and if your still in OZ, we should definitely meet up for a drink...even though its in a years time, but I can tell you this, I am %150 going on this planned trip of mine! I have family in OZ and friends I will be meeting up with. The joy of social network has kept me in touch with people and now I have accommodation in OZ! Where abouts are you working? Im soooo stoked! just talking about it makes me super excited :)
