10,000 miles journey begins with the first step.
if you are fear to begin with the host networks. Trust me! You are not alone! Well I have to confess that I was afraid to use host network to travel. I have heard about it from a couple who were waiting in the same queue as me when I was applying for a working holiday visa to Australia.
After a while I applied it and got accepted from the host in Byron bay , Australia. But the fear of uncertainty kept me away from her. I changed my plan and canceled that trip to stay in my comfort zone , working and saving money. Then I could travel when I have enough money.
