hey all! Is there anybody moving to London in 2013?
I am currently 22 years old living near Melbourne, Australia.
Next year i will be on a working holiday visa and plan on being there in March.
Is there anybody else thinking of doing the same thing? :)

    Well the contiki I’m looking at doing only goes for like a week but I was hoping to meet people staying in London, I haven’t lined anything up as far as work goes I was gonna just wing it, I have heard there’re heaps of job agencys that get u bar jobs really fast so kinda relying on that. I wanna do Spain in July the racing of the bulls and then octoberfest in September. I was in London last year and did the ultimate European it was so awesome never drunk so much in my life lol! Yes I’m totally freaking out cause I know no one over there and I’m totally just going with the flow haha. How are your plans going have u organized work?

Oh u are game to run with the bulls!haha I think I’m pretty much organised, almost really to open a bank account wichis kind of annoyin to do lol. But yeah. I’m excited :)

I haven’t even thought about a bank account yet I keep thinking I have 6 months but that will go so fast !! What date do you arrive in London ? Do u know of a suburb you are gonna live in ? I’ve heard hammersmith and Oxford and meant to be pretty good , yes it’s so nerve racking but exciting :))
