I absolutely love travelling and when I leave school next year I'd love to either go to Australia on a WHV and do IntroTravel's Sydney trip and then travel after, or work in a summer camp in America and travel there after. I really want to do both but I don't have the money and I'm really struggling with what one to choose. I've looked into them both thoroughly and it's just making it harder for me. Has anyone done both? I'd love to hear about your experiences. Thank you

Choose wherever will make you happy, I'd choose Australia though.

I was leaning more towards Australia because I do have family there but it's a lot more expensive when you get there for food, transport, etc. I'll look into it more. Thank you all!

I have never been neither in America nor Australia, but if it has to be one of those two, it is the latter.

I’ve been to America twice now. Once at thirteen years old and the last time was in 2019. I recommend using trip advisor to narrow down your travel options and post a question on the forums there. You may want to start preparing now in case because this lockdown won't last long. A shortlist of places is a great idea too.

Isn’t the latter option an elaborate hoax anyway? 😏

America for me.

I’ve never been to Australia but I’ve never really fancied it either. It’s a far longer journey than I’ll ever manage. I’m bad enough with 7 hours on the plane to New York!

Im home now, been home since 2018. but yeah basically, flew into brisbane and done a bit of travelling, hired a campervan and drove to Sydney. stayed in Sydney for 6 months, really easy to find a job there i had mine within the first day of looking! then i left to go do my farmwork to extend my visa. stayed there for 6 months. then i went to Asia for 2 months. then went back to start my second year and lived in Melbourne for 6 months, again found work within about 2 or so weeks then decided to go back to where i did farm work because the money was so good. was able to come home with about 5k english so i didnt have to worry about work or that. if you want any advice or info, give me a private message if you can on here? ill be more than happy to help. Australia is honestly life changing.

Wow, thank you so much - it sounds incredible. I'm going to look into it a bit more and about uni, etc. as from what you're saying it could definitely turn out to be more than a summer trip
