Default The Secrets of Studying Abroad

On Janurary 1st, I will be flying to Glasgow, Scotland for a semester abroad. I'm 20, don't have a serious girlfriend, and will have a deccent amount of money to blow. I've already connected with a few OOT's over there and it's clear I'm going to have the time of my life. I want to maximize all the possibities of fun, so I'm turning to OOT for nuggets of wisdom. Here is my plan thus far:

1) Drink a new kind of beer every day.
2) Try to visit a new country every weekend.
3) Travel with good friends who are studying abroad, but try to make as many new friends from different countries as possible.
4)Listen to what people think about Americans, rather then tell them anything about America.
5) Have a rough budget and try to stick to it (I'll have about 7k for travel and fun, not including tuition and accomidations)

What else should be in my plan? Obviously I'm going to try to get in bar fights and have sex with Scottish chicks.

I spent about 8k in England last semester and I wasn't even in London. I'd say be sure to visit the smaller towns/areas- not just the large cities (a city is a city). Take lots of trips. Also, as we learned don't get on a train anywhere unless you're drunk or brought something with you to drink, it just doesn't make sense to not be drunk if you could be.

Did you spend 8k on housing and tuition, or just on booze and fun? Damn, that's a lot of money.

I spent a lot of time traveling, plus the dollar=dick.
And drinking is expensive. Do the math...a pint'll cost you around 3-4 pounds we'll say. That's like $7.

The dollar is rising, thankfully.

Maybe I'll look into meeting a hot older women with a ton of cash. I'm also a lightweight when it comes to booze, so that's good.

The women there are shockingly ugly, but slutty. I would take many cheap trips to other countries that have hot sluts as opposed to ugly ones- spain and iceland are supposed to have the finest selection

I hear Iceland is pretty cool. Plus it's a social democracy so if I catch something it'll be easy to get some healthcare.

That's a lot of dough. I think you got ripped off.
