    Hey Riaz! I am thinking about going to America at that time! Good for you for putting a deposit down! You will be less likely to change your mind! lol Have you been to the USA before? I am scared shitless but want to do a working holiday for a year around America

    Hey Sammy,
    Hahhaha thats exactly why i put a deposit, no turning back and thats the way i want it. I have been to l.a and vegas last year with a couple of mates but this time i really wanna see new york. My mates already went this year but i started a really good job so i didnt wanna be irresponsible and the other day i just thought screw it, im gonna do contiki and do it on my own. I have a friend who lives in San Diego so I am meeting her after and doing abit of America with her aswell. I admire you for wanting to do a working holiday in a different country, Í’m 26 and im considering doing that, i wish i did it earlier but its not too late. Dont be scared, youll meet people and going overseas is life changing. I love America and u will to. You should go.. you live once and do it while you can; it’ll be summer and i’ve heard from many people that New York is there favourite destination so theres alot to look forward to!.. Hope your sold lol.

    I have been talking to a few people about doing a working holiday and everyone has told me not too! Apparently no one can get work in America at the moment :S Have you heard anything?

    Given the global financial crisis, it wouldnt suprise me. There should be jobs in the hospitality industry but either way you should go to America and check it out. Its hard to get certain work anywhere in the world at the moment. I am not too farmiliar with professional working life in America at the moment but I do know its a great place to visit and check out the scenes while you there.
