Hey My name's Charli...I'm 20y/o and live in brisbane...i've just come back from a VERY SHORT little road trip up the coast where i slept on the beach, woke up at 4 for a surf...and chilled out on the beach for the rest of the day...while i was there though, I saw three vans parked in the parking lot with a whole bunch of people that have been road tripping around. THAT is something i've always wanted to do...the thing is that none of my friends seem as willing as me to road trip for longer then a day...by longer i mean, i want to road trip for at lesat a week or two...longer if anyone's keen. How do i find people that would road trip with me? From Brisbane to anywhere....for however long...

Any tips??

You can start with a post like this, here! I'm going to move this to the Australia forum so more people in Australia will see it.

It's best to make some new friends! You can meet lots of "travelly" type people at hostels. If you're desperate, ask someone to put up a poster in the lobby of one of them.

You should have gone up to those people in the parking lot and asked them if you could've joined! That works too...

You can also look on websites like couchsurfing.com and virtualtourist.com for people that are just as travelly as you. I have had lots of experience with this. It's good times.
