Travel Forums Europe Best place to live short term.

Hello, my man and I want/need to get away. We so desperately want to go somewhere in Europe. Personally I would like to stay in England. I was wondering, where would the best place for a 20 year old and a 24 year old, to go in England, that would be a great place to live and work. We will be leaving everything here, and starting. We want to find good jobs quick, and a place to live that will not break the bank. Any ideas? Thanks.

certainly all of the above need answering - plus what kind of interest/hobbies do u enjoy?

for instance, if you love to surf then i would def recommend 'Newquay' cornwall on the south west coast of England, plenty of work aviliable, specially in the summer months - awesome atmosphere about the place - tho the weather can be pretty harsh in the winter - nasty weather fronts coming in off the atlantic!

We are from Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have not worked out the permits yet, he is still waiting on receiving his passport. We just want to stay in England for at least, about a year. We don't need much, we just want to start a new life.

We aren't really looking for places with hobbies. We want to start a new life there. Find some good jobs, we don't need much. We are thinking about staying in England for about a year. Affordable is our concern.

go to Edinburgh, Scotland...
it's cheaper than England and it's probably the most beautiful city i've ever seen!
