to the boards Dr.Blue!!!
I checked it out and your 2500P will fetch you some where in the area of 5800$ AUS. That is a sweet piece of change. And that should get you past 3 months and then some. As for your working visa, I am not sure how it works with UK, but Canadians have to have 5000$ to prove that they can support themselves before the visa is issued...you might wanna look into that. If that is the case, maybe apply for the visa before you leave, while you still have that kinda money, after 3 months you might not be able to show that you have the money to support yourself.
