    I'm a girl and I want to go travelling but I don't want to go alone
    Many of my friends are going to University in September but I'm considering a gap year to go travelling.
    I want to go to Asia then New Zealand/Australia but I'm not sure on going by myself

    Any advice?

    You can do the work Australia programme through bunac.

    You can go with a group from the uk so you wont be alone.

    Try to book group experiences e.g. group tours abroad etc so you are guaranteed to meet other people and not be lonely.

    Some useful links: Asia tours / Australia tours / New Zealand tours

    If you want to go the independent route stay in hostels and try to be as social as possible, it is usually very easy to meet other travellers as most people want to go to the same places or travel the same route.
