Staying in the UK is no more expensive than being a tourist in the USA.
You wont get a month in London. Same as me travelling from the UK to New York.
Silly Prices !
So decide on what you want to do over here and start planning,
Have a look at the YHA web site. Youth Hostels Association.
Forget the Youth reference. My Kids aren't Youths anymore. And I use them too!
They are used by Travellers like yourself - and me - across Europe.
They are Family groups and Ramblers ( Countryside Walkers)
Plus you get to meet folks just like yourself !
And a chance to share and join in.
No Bums, just decent folks. Believe me.
You can get YHA in London in advance - but at twice the cost !
Most YHA have a few rules - like no booze.
And they feed you too !
You may have to help out in the Kitchen in some places.
Travel with a Backpack.
So plan your Cities and get started !
Sure you'll come back if you need more info - we'll look forward to it Hank !
