Hi everyone!
I'm an Australia (from Adelaide, currently living in Queensland) who is planning to go on the Ultimate European (inc. Egypt) sometime next year... FINALLY!! When exactly depends on when i reach my savings goal!
I would also love to spend some time working and living in the UK after the Contiki has concluded, even if it is only for a brief amount of time.

It seems a lot of people on this forum have done this or are planning to do so and i was just wondering what your experiences were with finding work/accommodation or if you signed up to an agency or a place like London Pub Company?

ANY information or experience (positive or negative) that you would like to share would be very appreciated!
Thank-you. =)

    hello :)
    i have recently moved to London from Melbourne. personally i would recommend finding work in Adelaide rather then coming here with nothing(as i did) i mean, there are tons of jobs here but there is hundreds of people fighting for the one position. I found a house pretty easily, i used the website spareroom.com i would recomend that over gumtree any day, to many creeps on gumtree! Just be ready to pay alot for rent, i was surprised in actually how expensive it is to rent! Anything else i can possibly help you with feel free to ask me haha.

Questions?
