I'm panning on leaving the sunshine state sometime between Jan and March next year and coming over to the mother-country to join up. I've had a gander at London and its a bit pricey so any ideas on where i should base myself for the recruitment process? I'd like it to be as cheap as possible (don't mind sluming it in a backpackers) while still allowing me to keep the fitness up without worrying about getting carved up by the local hoodies. The place being generally pleasant and interesting wouldn't hurt either i suppose. also, how easy is it to grab casual/part-time employment ?(labouring, bar tending, what ever) i'm not really keen on sitting on my arse for 3-6 months. cheers, muzz.
