Hey! Well I am hoping to fly out early may...but all depends if my house sells. I was going to fly to Perth and start there...but here more young travellers fly east to Cairns, Sydney etc. So many things to decide on!Where are you from? I've been looking at jobs over there, but obviously cant do anything till i get there. Trying to get in touch with as many people as possible.

I'm from the delights of Cumbria in North West England!! If you dont live close by chances are you've never heard of it ha!
My plans are to go Sydney first and get 6 months work in so I can travel for a bit and then work some more and get my second year working Visa whilst im there

Haha usually when i say cumbria ppl dont have a clue, ive even had b4 "have u heard of england" becoz they think I mean Columbia!!
Yeah I will most likely book hostels for when I first get there and then look for some long term accommodation in sydney, but ive been told to try and book somewhere for over xmas b4 i go asap becoz it gets booke dup real quick and if i cant find any accomm long term i may not get booked in anywhere so i will most prob look at doing that too
