Sorry Lauren jut saw your message! Yeh I'm sort of doing the same I have family to stay with before and after but then I'm not to sure what I will do! I've been to the uk for two months before an love it but was staying with family the whole time! So I really haven't travelled on my own before either! Starting to get close now! Haha pretty nervous!
Yea its definitely a strange kind of scary. I arrive next Tuesday, wow, I can't believe its so soon! I totally know what you mean about talking to people over there, it doesn't seem real haha. That's so awesome you only booked 4 weeks ago and to actually go so soon too. I booked back in March so have been waiting for ages it seems. Yea there's a few people I went to school with over there and haven't seen them probably since school so will be quite cool to catch up with them. Do you know many people over there? Ahhh you go this week!!!
It's pretty scary though! Haha... When do you arrive in London? My last day of work is Wednesday... Yeh me either I haven't travelled alone... It's weird saying to the people I know in England "see you this weekend" haha I only booked it all about 4 weeks ago so it's so sureal for me... Do you know anyone else over there?
No worries, I didnt get a notification for your other comment, just happened to be on here checking something out and saw it. It's quite cool not having a proper plan of what to do, just gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Oh cool, I havent travelled on my own at all so we can discover things together haha. Yea, I'm pretty nervous too but excited at the same time. It's my last day of work tomorrow, yay! Its all happening now, for so long it was just a plan for the end of the year and now the end of the year is here!! Exciting!
Yeah that's my plan to! I have been thinking I'd like to go to Ireland to! But not sure when that would be! What sort of work are you thinking of doing? Yep I'm traveling on my own to! Bit nervous haha! Where abouts are you from? : )
Yea I was thinking of pub work too or hotel work somewhere. I'm doing a job programme that gives me listings for the 2 years I'm there for so will see what is on the list. Oh cool, that's good you have a go-to job that you could find. Yea I'm staying with family too and then going to stay at the Tune Hotel for a couple nights before, its just around the corner from the other ones I think. So have you been to the UK before? This is my 1st time and my 1st time travelling alone too, so lucky to have family to meet me at Heathrow!
Oh really? Yeh I'm not to sure I'm thinking of just doing some pub work somewhere! I'll just wait to see what happens! I'm a hairdresser so if all else fails il look for a hairdressing job. Yeh I arrive in London on the 6th I've got family there so will be staying with them before the tour...are you staying at the royal national the night before? I'm from Cronulla in Sydney.
Same, I really want to go to Ireland but people keep saying getting jobs there is hard so thought I might look for a job in Scotland. Not sure what kind of job I'll look for, something touristy I think. Yea I'm a bit nervous too but I'm sure we will be fine :) I'm from Wellington, NZ. Where are you from? So do you get there quite early too? I get there on the 9th
hey lauren yeh I'm staying on to! i have my british passport so I'm not sure how long ill be there for. i guess ill just wing it after the tour! where are you planning on heading? are you going over by yourself?
