    Hi Gina!! I thought I was the only one going as no one has replied! This will be my first trip alone. Sounds awesome what you are doing :-) x

    When do you arrive in Sydney? I think I’m going to book my flight for a couple days before the trip x

    I land in Sydney on the 12th March, I’m staying in Base hostel. So spending a few days alone, figured it would probably give me a few days to recover from the flight. I booked mine so long ago now but it’s getting so close. Really looking forward it but very nervous all at the same time. What kind of work were you doing in Tasmania? X

    Yes..recover from jet lag!
    I’m waitressing .. Pay is much better out here compared to in the UK! Are you studying?

    I’m too old to study! Lol. I’m 25. Sounds pretty good! Have you booked your flights yet? If so, when do you arrive? X
