I realized last night that in one month I’ll be in England. I can’t wait to go back, but the reason I couldn’t sleep was because I noticed I only have five of the 15 days I’ll be there sorted out. Not only that, but I’ve been trying to pretend it’s not going to cost me all of my savings to go out there—the conversion rate between pounds and dollars still has me losing lots o’ money. Do you think it’s possible to spend two weeks in Great Britain for less than $2,000 US dollars (1,186 GBP)?
I’ve been to London before, so this time I’m considering venturing out to places I’ve never been, places like Stratford-Upon-Avon (Shakespeare country) and Scotland to see the Loch Ness Monster and exquisite castles, but my problem is that I think I’ll need a tour group to see these places since I won’t have a car and September in the United Kindgom doesn’t have the most friendly walking weather.
Or I could just stay in London and see all that it has to offer, or try to catch a fairly cheap flight to France, Italy, Ireland, Amsterdam, or Spain…but then I’m getting into a whole new dilemma regarding how much money will come out of my bank account!
Basically I need to make some decisions and start booking hostels/hotels/tours(?) by the end of this week, if not sooner. If you have any money-saving tips for me, I’m all ears; it’s been four years since I’ve been there, so I’m sure things have changed.
