    I’m heading over in June after my tour and then will hopefully find a live in pub job in London.
    Hearing mixed reviews about the job market over there which is making me nervous!
    A few of my cousins are over there but I really don’t want to rely on them for a place to stay for too long.

I’m 23 male from Melbourne Australia, I’ll be doing the Escapade in Aug first time! then thinking of working in London hopefully straight after, in the graphic design industry, probably a good idea to start at a bar/pub though sigh.. Hope its not to tough to get a design gig haha Fingers crossed it all works out! :p

    I went over in march 2011 and did a Contiki tour and then I had a visa for 2 years to stay in the UK but it didn’t work out at the time.. But I’m going back in June to give it another go :)

    Thanks. A few friends I met on Contiki and also from school have got visas and are now living over there so it will be easier this time knowing people and not being alone. What Contiki tour are you doing? All the best :)
