    Have you considered doing the Rockies in the Western US instead of Western Canada?

    Both the Euro and CAD are quite strong right now, but the USD is quite weak which would allow you to have a cheaper vacation.

    i had the EXACT same problem. im also 20 from perth and like you i just want to get out and see the world but not sure how. i looked at and was seriously thinking of going to canada to work. the one and ONLY reason i chose to holiday in Europe instead of canada is because i have a partner and while he wants to travel his work isnt the kind of job you can just take months off from. who knows maybe one day ill go. but i definately think that you should def experience working in another country. no one i know who did this have had any regrets. now u just have to choose… canada or europe. have fun Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->
