You can always leave it for the next time you make it over the pond and travel on a shoestring. There's nothing like dreaming of travelling.

I'm thinking about going to england/wales myself in the second week of august. I'll probably go out traveling alone (by car) this trip. I plan in staying in hostels or B&B's to meet people along my way; so if anyone has any suggestions or thoughts on this i would be grateful :)

Well if you plan on cutting across the South of England to Wales there's a bunch of cool stuff down there like the Hill figures. There's the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire an' a bit further down in Dorset there's the Cerne Abbas Giant. The Long Man of Wilmington is in Sussex. I hear Bath in Somerset is really nice too, I'd love to go there meself I've never been before.

Bath is a nice city, I went there a few years ago (might be stating the obvious but make sure you check out the bathes if you go there)

I've been doing research on CouchSurfing, the only bad thing I've heard about it is that rape case in Leeds. Anyone have more experience with CouchSurfing?

We're finally gonna need a car where we're going.
I heard some people who have CouchSurfed actually survived.

I did that once in Chicago and had the best time ever. My hosts were the most welcoming and helpful people they could have been. I'll be visiting them again in August.
