I am a resident of Oregon, USA. I want to rent a flat or cottage, in a centrally located city of town, rail access N and S, Midlands likely area. I will likely want to rent a car. I intend to travel from Scotland to Plymouth, Reading to Liverpool - visiting Twitter friends and seeing sights. Want to budget appropriately. Average weekly or monthly cost of living in UK would be helpful: food, housing, car, Petrol, tain travel, etc.
thank for any help or advice you can give me. Also want to hook up with reputable couple to stay in my lovely new home in Salem Oregon. May be interested in rent-free home swap.
Have you left yet? I live in the midlands and there are loads of beautiful places around here to live or stay! Depending on budget, Worcester is a lovely city, as is Stratford-upon-Avon (home of Shakespeare.) Average living cost varies greatly depending on the area you are, there are loads of supermarkets for food (Asda, equivalent of Walmart) is generally cheap, if you want to eat out this varies again depending on area. Hiring a car is a good option if you're looking to move around alot. Major cities and some villages have train stations so this too could be an option - railcards are great if you're going to be using trains alot and generally offer some some good discounts! about 5 years ago
