Thank you for your advice! I am really looking forward to this experience, and I hope it will end up being as great as I imagine it today. I loved London when I went there. It's vitality, and as you say, all the new things to discover...including the nightlife, which I couldn't experience while I was there. The only thing that worries me is that I know it will be difficult to get used to a totally new way of life...problem which I guess you won't have!
