Everyone knows that the first post is Spam. But I really do have something to say!

I am going to Scotland! (and England)

Excitement...

But earning money isn't easy. I don't have the paperwork because immigration sucks, so I can't work. I have instead taken up babysitting and other general grunt work, which isn't always fun. A couple of weeks ago I helped some people move, and that paid about $10 an hour. But it strained my back so I have to be careful when working my regular job, which is taking care of my neighbors horses and cleaning out the stalls. that pays only $35 a week.

Scotland and England are going to be expensive. The dollar has been falling, much to my dismay, and London is expensive. Really expensive. but I have done my homework, and we found a small place to stay for about 38 pounds a night per person. I wanted to stay at this nice place owned by this nice gay couple, but some of the people in my group had an issue with it. Too bad, really--it was such a nice place.  Very modern, artsy and safe seeming. They had both a triple and a quad available, I believe. Oh well.

But the plane ticket was $700
The Rail Pass was roughly $400
We're planning on 35-55 pound a night (about 60 to 110 dollars roughly)
And 15 pound a day for food. ($35 ish)
And we are staying for fourteen days.


I have 2.7k left that I've allotted for the trip, and I'm trying desperately  to earn more, as I have college coming this summer.

Wish me luck!
