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? :)

    Yeah I think I am going to book La Tomatina! :). I’ll look into Ibiza as well because that would be awesome. I leave on the 27th of July and heading to America on the way to London, get to London on the 9th of August and staying with family, but have no plans beetween the 9th of August and La tomatina. And yep Caity I am from Brisbane too !! :). After La tomatina I am going European Panorama contiki tour.

    Hey Kim, you should definitely book la tomatina! Look at the pillows tour it looks sweet. Also if you are keen for Ibiza a girl I met on fb and I are going together, and were looking for someone to stay in our apartment to make it cheaper so if your keen we could look at that! We’re staying at apartmentos sal rossa :)

    Hey Caity, that sounds awesome, I would love to do that, have you already booked it all? I think I just added you on Facebook which might be easier to discuss :)

    I moved to London 3 months ago and love it! I moved by myself from Sydney, Australia and atm I’m and au pair (which is kind of like a nanny) so I’m living with them but I still go out heaps and have my free time to do whatever. I’m going on a contiki tour in July/August but if you need anyone to show you round or just have someone over here when you get here then we can meet up if you like :)

    Maddz did you organise your aupair job through an agency before you left or when you got there? also, how did you arrange accomodation? i’m looking at doing the same but other than getting my british passport have NO idea where to start!! any websites or tips would be awesome.

    Hey Maddz, EAC13 and EmmaEmily, there is quite a few people all doing the same thing as you girls. We have started a group on Facebook so that it’s a lot easier for everyone to stay in touch. I know a few of the people in London already don’t post on here any more. If you want to add me I’ll add you into the group and you can try and organise things in their, it’s a lot easier. There’s a link to my Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/daniel.bishop.52056

    EAC13 no worries! That’d be cool! What tour are you and your friends doing? Ill be around after the 20th of August :)
    EmmaEmily, yeah I had it all sorted out before I came over . I used a website called ‘au pair world’ and all you have to do is make a profile then start searching! Too easy! For my accommodation I’m ‘live-in’ so I’m living with the family that I au pair which is great!
    There’s so many websites though, search in au pair in google and plenty should come up. Just make sure they’re legit before you talk to anyone on there. Skype was great for the whole process so if you don’t have Skype I suggest you get it :) let me know if to need anymore help!
    Thanks Daniel! I might just do that :)

    cheers Maddz, i’ll try the things you suggested. how do you tell if the agency is legit?? thats my biggest worry..

  • 16 May 2013 Maddz said

    Maddz

    I can’t remember how I did but check the link, it will be http:// and check reviews and stuff and regarding talking to people on there don’t give out personal info until you know that the person is who they say they are

    I’m flying over tomorrow, doing about 3 weeks of travelling to Germany, Scotland, Ireland and northern England. I have a mate with me but he is off on contiki tour for 3 weeks so I will be alone in London from the 6th of June. If anyone is keen to catch up after the 6th I’m keen :)
