My name is Jess, I'm going to the UK in three weeks. I'm staying in London for a few days and then going on a backpacking tour of England, Scotland and Wales. Hope I can be of help to people coming to see my little corner of the world, and plan on meeting fellow travellers over the pond!
Hi Jess! Welcome to TP. Have you thought about signing up as a Travel Helper? Great way to put your knowledge of the maritimes to work! Enjoy your trip! It sounds wonderful.
Hello, welcome to TP! Fire away with questions about the UK! You haven't thought about visiting Halifax have you? That would be ironic...
I guess one of the best ways to backpack round the UK is to use the Youth Hostels, they are withing walking distance of each other and cover most of the UK.
Have a look at the web sites, they are also a good source of information on what to see and do.
I will be away from the UK from 28th March to 15th April, after that I will be available for more help if you think you need a contact.
Enjoy your stay.
Hi Jess_bear I hope you enjoy your tour of Britain. I will be coming to Halifax in September as it is my first stop in an around the world trip. Any good campsites in NS?
