Hi all, how've you been doing?
Going to be direct and straight to the point: I will have two weeks of vacation sometime in November (what a great month for vacations...), and while it's far too soon to say if it'll be possible (I'd say the chances are about 70% no and 30% yes) I was thinking about travelling to the UK.
It's basically just a crazy idea at this point, the time I'd stay is not set, I have no clue how much money I'd need, if I'd travel alone or accompanied by my brother and/or friends alternatively or just plain alone (call me a coward but travelling alone to a different country terrifies me lol). So a lot of incognites as you can guess.
My question is, if it were to happen it'd suck to miss the opportunity to meet up with Sal's friends. Communication would be horrible sure, as I've never had to use English my entire life. I have no clue if I'd be able to understand any of you (ayy lmao) or if I could make myself understandable. :P
So how many if any of you would be interested in meeting up even if only for a couple hours to have a drink or something, maybe show me some places around and make me feel less alone if I end up travelling alone? :P
Another question is about distances. Say if I were to go to London (which seems like the obvious destination) how difficult would be travelling to say Wales, or Northhamptonshire (hope I spelt this right)? Would a clueless tourist be able to manage or I'd need like a guide or something?
I have childhood friends living in England, one in London and another in North[insert-rest-here], but they'll probably be busy with work most of the time and won't be able to chill around much during the week.
Anyway at this point it's just an idea basically, far from becoming reality. Just thought it'd be nice to have an idea of what to expect.
