Finding my place in Australia

I'm new to travelling and want to do my greatest adventure.

Hi, I am new to travelling and I am going to do a big one on the first time already, fly all around the world to australia.
I am soooo fed up with everything I see here in my life that I want to bring an extreme change in the whole thing, just one big blast to an entire new & happier life. therefor, I am going to australia and hopefully get a job there, meet fun&great people and get positively amazed by everything I always wanted to go through.

My basic plan is... I fly there, I just take my backpack or whatever I got on me, walk out of the airport and walk into a new life... I will look for place to sleep there that same day I got there, find something that my heart feels right to me and hopefully get a good job there i'm happy with. When I get there, just follow my nose, no direction plans made. I don't think if that's the smartest way to handle it, but thats the way I want it and with a little luck it turns out well. (I'm very adventurous)

If somebody would like to come with me, meet at the airport, land at the same day, go on it together. If you have the same idea, I'll be happy to have u with me, I'm 19 years old, I'm a very nice guy and anything else u can ask if ur interested.

I havent set a date yet but I will probably go this september if everything goes good. I am guna use a Work-Holiday Visa. So I can stay there for a year before I have to come back and get a new one. Reply to this

Where abouts are you going while in Aus? I live in Brisbane currently and have lived in Melbourne for about 12 yrs also.
In Brisbane you have FANTASTIC weather.
In Melbourne you have an awesome city with great nightlife.
Sydney has a little bit of both but is bloody expensive but you have to hit up all 3 cities. They're not far from each other anyway.

Have a blast guys :D
