  11. Hey! I’m from Nashville too and going to Brighton, England for 5 months this coming January. Any tips??

    Oh, wow…pretty much everything. Seriously, I think I’d run out of space if I started to list everything that I’m loving about London. It’s just a great city to be in- it’s like living in New York but everything’s capped at like 10 stories. There’s so much to do, so much to see. The rest of Europe is so easily accessible (for example, I’m going to Belgium tomorrow). It’s just all around awesome.

    This is fantastic, I was an (American) masters student in London from ’06-’07 and I just found your videos. You made me remember so much about my own experience and made me laugh like crazy! Cheers, Robyn from California

    Oh you drive on the wrong side of the road down there too?

    And yep, I milk my being an astrophysicist ALL THE TIME!

  21. Haha! I’ve been there! And I’m sorry but the brits drive on the RIGHT side of the road (like us aussies) =P haha.

    Ps. An Astrophysicist??? Dude thats awesome… if I was an astrophysisist I’d tell people all the time even if it had nothing to do with anything… awesome!

    Oh, dude, I know. Paris is crazy expensive too! Bah! Silly exchange rates!

  23. SuperAmyj | June 2, 2010 at 12:58 pm |

    You think beer in London is expensive? Wait until you get to France! Average of €7 in a bar or pub in a city, thats nearly $10!

  24. artifex85 | June 2, 2010 at 1:26 pm |

    Therein lies the humor!

    Or I could argue that most of the rest of the world also drives on the right.
