Summer 09 Itinierary help!!

I traveling with my cousin this Summer [both female, 20/21] and am looking at putting together a basic itinerary. I’m going to on Exchange to England from September so am traveling for a while before then. We are flying into London and spending 3 wks in the UK, then spending a week in Spain with some friends. From there, we have about a month to do Europe, pretty much August. We are looking at doing;

Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France as our main countries.

IEP / Best Work Abroad Scheme for UK

Hey guys,
I’m sure this has been answered before (i did do a search etc, but found nothing), sorry if it has, just point me in the right direction.

I’ve just applied for the UK Youth Mobility scheme (2 year work visa), and am thinking about my next step… I leave for the UK in June, and am planning to spend my savings traveling around northern Europe, before going to the UK to work for a few months, then traveling some more; which brings me to my main point – How useful are these work abroad schemes?

London, Cardiff, Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh

I leave for two weeks to London, Cardiff, Dublin, Belfast, and Edinburgh in 2.5 months and have done a lot of research, but I was wondering if anyone who has been to any of these cities what the “must-do” things are in each of them, as well as any tips for my itinerary.

Thanks! Bob

Getting From Stansted Airport to Oxford

My friend and I are having a bit of difficulty finding a cheap way to get from Stanstead Airport to Oxford. We were looking at the Stansted Airport website, and the cheapest was about £35. Anyone know a cheaper way to get there? Would it be cheaper/easier going from Stansted to London, then London to Oxford (St. Clemens).? Thanks!
