I have a rather dislike for touristy stuff. I want to learn about the country and the people living there. That is why I want to go for a month or two. Maybe for the first time I'll only go for a couple weeks. I am in the process of making a friend from there (the girl at work). She is telling me a lot about England and has a bunch of tips.
I want to see London, but not stay there for more than a day. I don't like cities, just not my thing. What I would love to do is stay on a farm and help out for a week or two.
I really don't think I'll end up renting a car... just not worth the hassle of trying to drive on the other side of the road and make sure I get everything right, while being there for the first time.
I'm not a beach person. I don't swim so beaches aren't a big interest for me. Though I wouldn't mind seeing the ocean (I've only seen it once, in WA).
Once again, thank you so much!
