    How far will 10 000 get me??

    Well where to start... Join a freq flyer program and get points on long haul flight you would be amazed at how they add up and get a cc with free bonus sign up points,like in australia anz currently offering 50,000 points on qantas... Not sure if you are aware of website "workaway" it maybe something worth looking at jobs in hostels for living and food type stuff...mite suit you!! They can get you further than you think but use them only on big flights...in asia use air asia as they travel everywhere and are really cheap just be warned to pre pay luggage... As far as destinations goa is a great place as is most of india for living cheaply and lots of asia still is...chang mai in thailand is an amazing place and you can still get your own apartment for a few hundred a month from there you can do seam riep in cambodia which is great and cheap to fly to and live but you only want a week max there,my friends tell me vietnam is super cheap and of course you have to do the party town of patong, thailand,stay in karon just 4k and an easy tuk tuk ride home...and way better beaches to swim at!!! Dont discount europe thou im currently in berlin and its an amazing city and dirty cheap to live im only spending around $150 us a week not including accom and my friend just booked a hostel here for $20 us a night... Spain is still dirt cheap(i lived in a place for $600 a month 1 hr from barcelona) as is greece!!! Im using airbnb currently and have paid $220 a week but its really nice place you can get way cheaper... Look at airbnb for most places and just choose a extended stay in the cities where cheap rooms are available...you can bet if rooms are cheap food and transport will be too... Will keep thinking for you but do choose a good insurance as things will get lost and stolen(its a part of extended travel abroad) be very sensible in parts of asia as a single girl(india in parts) and keep everything $$,pasports ipods etc locked up in your room AT ALL TIMES...i left my room to get ice and had $30 stolen from the maid in a few minutes... Warning though once started you will become addicted to it...lol almost 5 years ago

    Best way to get from JFK to the Statue of Liberty ,subway or cab, car company.

    Dont use shuttle services they are terrible and you could take 3-4hrs to get there... Take a cab and neg fee to go from airport to battery park...when i was there it was a flat$45 plus tip and tolls i think it cost me 57 total but well worth it Dont know trains but sure u can google it almost 5 years ago

    How do you deal with Australian summer heat?

    Sydney is amazing in january with much to do...yes it will b hot but its very liveable... Must do's are everything outdoors and beach related as we are a beach and outdoor culture... These include...manly beach sunrise and breakfast on a sat or sun morning take you swimming costumes and go swim with goggles off the point between shelley and manly beaches to see wild fish and sharks(not man eating1's) its truly amazing to see... Bondi beach to be seen and see all the beautiful ppl of sydney...do the walk around to tamaramma its wonderful and very chilled out Centennial park get a bike or walk and enjoy the grounds for hours... Any cafe in back parts of paddington...walk the city as it flat and very pretty to see from broadway all the way to the rocks and yes see darling harbour and go to the fish markets for an aussie treat of fish n chips!!! Do the harbour bridge climb,try to get to do it around sunset if possible...see a show at the opera house and tour it if possible... And just enjoy the summer its amazing in sydney and be there for the 26th Jan somewhere near the harbour as its our aust day celebrations with fireworks and boat races and much celebrations... All i can say is bring lots of money with you as its an extremely expensive city which i compare now to nyc or london on price!!! almost 5 years ago
