Hiya!, dropped out of uni, sold most of my stuff, bought a tent 2 live in and now planning to go travelling 4 as long as i can!
Not sure where 2 go tho, i'm from north east england, and thought i wudd start off in Wales, then ireland, maybe a few english cities, scotland, then who knows............

I'll sumtimes be camping in the grounds of youth hostels 2 save money and coz i wanna b outside escaping modern life 4 a bit, planning on doing alot of walking & seeing the remotest wildest bits ov britain

However i wud also love 2 stay in the odd city 4 the clubs & partys but i'm travelling alone, will i easy meet up with other backpackers i can hav a gud time with, make friends perhaps travel on with further afield???????????

Also what r the must see sites ov britain?

Just do what most travelers do and stay in London! Not really, check out Wales and Cornwall.

dont waste your time in london

GLASTONBURY is awesome. I wish I could have spent more time there. You've got the Tor (big hill with ruined tower on top) and chalice gardens, and the town itself is really neat, and the ruined abbey is supposedly the resting place of arthur and guienevere. The Tor is surrounded by legends, one of them is that merlin created a three dimensional maze in the tor that leads to the underworld. Another is that Joseph of Arimethea buried the Grail under it, and the spring that runs from under the Tor is from the chalice. The spring turns the rocks around it red and tates like blood (due to high iron content, no doubt, but its still interesting and fun). The spring is in the Gardens along with a bunch of new age hippie types who meditate. The gardens are gorgeous. Glastonbury itself is lovely, cool shops, good food, and several nice pubs with good prices. Definitely campable.

And jesus, really any of the places briley mentioned.. didnt make it up to the lake district but I've heard enough about it..
