Default Travelling across the US / AUS?

Hi all..

Now I know there are lots of people that use this forum daily that are from all over the states etc but I wanted some information.

About 3/4 months ago I seriously started looking into how I could possibly start travelling around the states but I need to know a lot first.


Where are the best places to go?
What is the easiest type of work to get for young bodies travelling.. bar work?

or even... I was looking at AUS now I know a few people that went over to AUS but theyre not back so cant really get a feel for what they did.

Anyone with advice would be great.
Cheers

I thought about this too but, it just seemed overwhelming with no money. I recently traveled to Bangkok, Thailand and Seoul, Korea. It lasted nearly 3 months and I did EVERYTHING. Not the same situation as you though I went there for vacation and had plenty of money no work involved at all.

I would start off in the West Coast, go to Sequoia King's Canyon National Park and check out the trees, most beautiful trees I ever seen. From there you can travel down to Los Angeles and San Diego. Then I'd go to Las Vegas and from there you're on your own I have no idea where I'd go from there. Probably stick to the south go through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and head to Florida. From Florida travel north to New York and end there.

For work and pretty much anything Craigslist will be your best friend tons of work there for young outgoing guys.

Solid advice from jambs. Bartending, waitering, other resto work - straight cash unless you secure working visa which seems hard.

A few years ago there was this 18 year old guy who was traveling about the USA by putting up gigs on Craigslist. "Will fix your computer (build your website, etc.) in exchange for room and board."

He was pretty good, especially at Wordpress template designs. I cannot remember his blog name right now, but he did pretty good. I especially remember his restructuring a doctor's computers in her office.

Maybe the way to the money is just doing gigs via Craigslist. You could work for cash maybe?
