Tips for moving countries alone?

Have you ever moved countries on your own? I had grand plans to move to Aus with my partner later this year, but one broken heart later, it seems I'll be going along. I am a little scared to take the leap now that I have to do it independently, but I'm not going to let a breakup ruin my dreams! Any tips on finding an apartment, job hunting, making friends etc would be greatly appreciated.

Couldn't do it nowadays anyhow. Not moving 6,500 books, nine sheep, a steer, seven geese, two roosters and ten hens, and Thunder my Ocicat - who would have a LOT to say on the would most of the others. But I would have quite happily when I was younger and had only books and cat.

I moved to London on my own, no job or anywhere to live in my early 20's. But times were different too, on one hand it was fairly easy to find somewhere to live (or stay in a backpackers) and jobs were also fairly easy (even if not what you wanted initially, the bills were paid!). On the other hand, no internet or mobile phones and ringing home was VERY expensive then. I moved in to a house with about 7 others and had an instant "family" of like minded people - so great if you can join others in the same boat. Friendships are formed fast, and deeply, in those situations. They still remain some of my best friends, even if in different countries. If I was to do it all now I think I'd be making the most of the internet, researching accom and areas, getting my CV in to employment agencies etc. Think you will look back on this and feel a real sense of satisfaction (despite circumstances), you didn't let anything hold you back!
