I traveled as a student backpacker on the pacific coast and yes it's a little more expensive than the east coast but still totally do-able. hostel accom is around 7-10 dollars per night and the scenery and wild-life is amazing there so if you have time i would check out both coasts almost 8 years ago
What foods should I try when I'm in London if I want to get a taste for the British culinary culture and not just fish and chips?
Great question! The food here is sadly understated! So believe it or not the most popular dish in England at the moment is… curry! Our English version of the Indian cuisine is not to be missed especially if you're heading to East london you'll need to check out what Brick Lane has to offer http://www.aladinbricklane.co.uk/ If you are wanting to steer down the more traditional route then in my opinion the path to taste bud heaven lies in Bangers and Mash - Sausages with caramelised onion gravy, The Lancashire Hotpot, my number one choice for a toasty winter casserole of meat and vegetables topped with sliced potatoes and my total favourite is Spotted Dick, the ever pleasing sounding steamed pudding stuffed with currants and topped with custard! http://uktv.co.uk/food/recipe/aid/513173.

Do you know where I can find a locker/storage area in Barcelona that's safe to keep equipment for a week, and relatively cheap? Thanks!
Hi Patrick, You could always try the airport? I know that they have a luggage storage there and they're usually not too over-priced. almost 8 years ago
