    I am! I’m looking at applying for my visa in Feb next year and I’ll be in the UK by June. I’m doing a couple of contiki tours before I ‘settle down’. When are you looking at moving over there?

    Yeah I am!! Ill be applying for my visa in about March or April, and then moving there in September 2012. Im going on Contiki in June and then traveling for a few months before settling down, but I have no idea where Ill live or what Ill do for work yet.

    I’m moving over next year (hopefully) as well :) Planning on working in Switzerland, but if that fails I will end up in the UK or maybe Ireland? :) I’ll end up somewhere around July :)

    I’m also moving over there in June and applying for my visa in Feb. I’m doing the Ultimate European tour which finishes in mid June.

    I don’t know anyone else over there though so I don’t know where I’ll be staying. I’m hoping to meet some like minded people on my trip.

    Has anybody figured out if they’re going to use one of the places on the internet that organise you a pub job if you pay them a certain amount? And they can help with other stuff like bank accounts etc? I’m not sure if I want to do it this way or just wing it and hope for the best when I get there?

    im an aussie and iv pretty much got my job sorted :) its a whole new adventure for me

    Brooke2010 – Can I ask how you’ve got your job sorted? That’s one of the things that I’m the most worried about… I’ve been looking on a few job websites but I’m not going to be over there til June so it’s still early days for me!

  • 6 Dec 2011 Brooke2010 said

    my advise is email a recruitment agency i did mine through C and M but thats the travel industry. so yea just email a UK recruitment agency that you are an Australian and ask if they can help you get a job.
    good luck.. PS bank account to sort out before you leave is HSBC it is an international bank and can be used while in london :)

    Thanks heaps – there are too many options out there and I’m going around in circles!. Are you doing any Contiki’s before you start work? :)

  • 6 Dec 2011 Brooke2010 said

    no worries .. yep Berlin to Budapest starts 21 January for 10 days.. its gonna be sooo cold. ill do more travelling when its summer and when i have more money saved.

    I looked at that tour, for later in the year, but after changing my mind so many times I left it on the back burner. Yeah, from what I’ve read/heard people work hard all summer to travel on weekends etc – especially seeing as everything is so cheap and close to travel to!
