Posted:So my birthday is coming up this month and Im turning 21. My parents have been asking me what I want and suggested a trip to Atlantic City for a weekend or something to test out my new gabling ability. But considering AC is only an hour drive or so from me, I can do that any time.

Instead, I was thinking about a trip to the UK to meet some of the poiple who have inspired me so much over the past year. However, it would be my first time out of the country so I really could use some help.

If I did take this trip, my main focus would be meeting poiple. Whats a good city to go to where I could meet as many of you as possible? I would probably spend a week there. Any suggestions on decent/cheap hotels? Any big events coming up in the next month or two that I might want to be present for? And probably most importantly, is there anyone who would be willing to show me around a bit and introduce me to some people?

Any other advice suggestions?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:I was actually thinking about the EJC but Im not sure about it. Firstly, when exactly is it? I looked at www.ejc2004.org and couldnt find a date. Its a 7 day long festival, do you stay there, eat/sleep etc there all 7 days or is it a pay per day type deal. Also, I have no idea of the currency difference... About how much American is 75 Euros?

Posted:25th of July eh? Thats a bit further along than Im looking for. How soon is BJC? Would actually rather go to BJC than EJC since the French hate Americans ubblol

And what exactly do the London people do on weekends? If it involves either a mass poi excursion or giant English orgies, my decision has been made ubbrollsmile
