Just found this website and I hope you guys can help me out.
I'm finishing my Masters (Architecture) this spring and have a job lined up starting July 1. The job has little holiday time (2 weeks first 2 years), so I want to make a trip to Europe to explore it a little. I've never been anywhere outside the USA except a few visits to Canada (Toronto, Montreal) and one to a resort in Mexico (Cabo). Visiting the U.K. makes sense because we speak the same language and I know quite a lot about this history.
Trouble is that I have little money. I have a free ticket (gift from my uncle who works with Delta, open ended) so that's taken care of, but my budget for the rest is 4k US (4000). This has to cover food, lodging, admissions -- everything else.
I'd like to stay at least a month if possible. Any suggestions on where to go, what to see, where to see, etc. How can I get the best experience with what I have?
