I've got to ask: from where/what is your avatar picture? It is so cute!!
Delayed until the summer! Boo! :-( On the plus side, it was so very last minute before (hence why I was asking for advice here - where the only Americans I can actually speak to hang out), so at least now I have a chance to do full research and save up a decent amount of money. Thanks for the previous help and advice! I took it all into account.
Have you been to the west coast of USA yet?
