Quoting T_O'S

Hi Lorna,

Meant to be heading to Sydney in November with my friend, but if she backs out and i've a feeling she might, i'll be on my own and would love to know someone out there/to travel with! Haven't booked flights or my visa yet.

My main plan was to head out there for a year (or more), to work and travel.
Just worried about heading on my own, have never traveled alone before.
Haven't looked at OzIntro, but was looking at UltimateOz which looks pretty cool.

Will you be flying into Sydney in November? If so do you think you'll stay long there?

I'm 22 and from Dublin by the way :)

Hi, i've heard a lot of people talk about OzIntro and UltimateOz. Is anyone leaving London Heathrow in October and doing them. I'm looking to travel with someone.

Yeah Im looking to book my flights soon, Ill be heading to Sydney first as I want to spend Chrsitmas and New Year there (the fireworks and parties are amazing!!)

If your friend backs out or even if she still goes with you, your more than welcome to meet up :) I think a few of us are meeting from here (if everyone still wants to)

I havent been on UltimateOz but I will have a look now. Thats what I want ot do, find work and stuff

Just ordered those brochures!

Reading through these posts everyone sounds almost the same haha, when i'm at work all I do is looking up online and trying to plan things out and because I know i'm leaving soon I dont think I do any work anymore :)

I should be there March which means hopefully you will all have about 2/3 months advice you can give me :)

where is everyone heading first?

Hey Lorna

I'm Katrina I'm 23 from Rossendale near Blackburn
I'm not booked yet but I'm looking to go to Sydney in October
I'll be going all by myself aswell which to be fair is pretty exciting but also terrifies me

I'd love to get to know some people to start my trip with

I'm looking to spend up to a year in Australia all together but going with no real plan just hoping to meet people and see as much as I can

hey everyone, sorry been a bit busy today. But I was thinking who ever is leaving in November maybe we should pick a date and aim for that. We can maybe book the same ozintro package and then at least we can all be together. Whats everyone feeling? I dont mind. I live right by Gatwick/Heathrow so i probs be leaving from there. But if thats difficult for everyone else we can always go to a different airport? Or even if we dont fly together we will all arrive the to the same hostel.

Ryan, We should all hopefully be experts by then lol so you can come meet us and will help u. or at least have some people you know when you get there.

Hey Kat, was you thinking the end of Oct? Maybe we can all plan out date togther. Im so bloody excited it a joke. but i feel so much better being able to talk to you lot about it.

Hope everyones alright. Im off for a few beers now, get me in the mood hahaha, but if anyone wants to add me on fb, charlotte mcgill, i have a blue shirt on and my mate has ginormo sunglasses in ahahaha. speak soon x

I know I just want to be there now!
I'm not booked so can go anytime around then really
Would be great if I could add on / meet up with everyone I've had a look at that realgap and that looks pretty good but was also thinking of maybe just going for it and finding something when I get there.

I'll have a nosey for ya on Facebook Charlotte ha. Mines Katrina Beagan x

I think it's a great idea if everyone going the same times tries to book the same OzIntro package! Read a review and it sounds amazing!

So anyone going near the start of November.

Charlotte, i'm in Dublin, so I will probably have to stopover in Heathrow, would be great to know someone on the same flight. Especially because it so long!

Lorna and Charlotte I'll have a look for you guys on FB.

Hi everyone!

I think doing the same oz package is a great idea! - We should all arrange something.

Are you planning on flying out at the start of October?
