My name is Monica and i'm 18 turning 19 years old from Australia.
I've just applied for a YMS visa for the UK and if i'm accepted, i'm planning to leave Australia for England in April sometime.
First I am going to try London and try to find work there, but after reading many posts on here I gather it can be sometimes hard to find employment in London so I am prepared to move anywhere over England or even the UK to find work, I don't mind where as I want to see as much as the UK as I can anyway, so it is more about the experience for me. I plan on working in the UK for a few months and then travelling around the rest of Europe for a few months and finishing my trip around December or maybe even longer, that's if all goes to plan.
I was meant to be travelling with a friend but she has since had to pull out. I'm not too worried about travelling alone but my parents aren't exactly 100% happy with it as they are worried about safety, ect. I was wondering if anyone out there is doing the same thing as me around the same time, or wanting to do the same thing, or maybe already doing it that might wanna meet somewhere along the way, or someone that might need a travel buddy aswell?
Im a friendly, young and easy going person with no real set plans so i'm very flexible and would love to hear from some people out there!
I was also wondering if anyone has any advice on basically everything?! Or if any people have previously done something like this and have any reccomendations on places to stay/towns to visit, ect. Im really looking for all the help and helpful tips I can get.
