    I live in Italy and I wanted to live in London, the hard part is to have enough money to eat/sleep while I'm looking for a job, i don't really care if i have to work 8/day or so to keep myself up

    I would suggest making sure you have at least 2 months of savings in £ before you come here. It's expensive in London and coming over on the pretence i will all work out when you get here, is not a good move.

    If you are going to come here with nowhere to stay and no contacts i would not suggest anything below the 3k mark to cover you safely. In terms of making money, read around these forums and see what you can find, but really if you are coming here to live then should be looking at a 9-5 job to get stable before looking into IM

    I've found some nice (and cheap) flat-shares on http://www.gumtree.com.
    I think that you got me wrong, I'll be spending 1 or 2 months, at least for now
    just to see the environment and enjoy a summer.
    what IM is? instant messaging :confused:?

    thanks for your support!

    Right got you.

    Im is internet marketing. Gumtree is a great place, don't send money to anyone for a place before you move in though, there are some scams on there.

    Search on the "Make Money" section in this forum, test and implemtent a method and see how you do. Facebook is hot right now

    Ive never done it before, but ive heard of couchsurfing (google it). Basically a non profit organisation which connects people from all over the world. I think you sign up, meet like minded people then crash on their couch if your in that area.

    Would cut down your accomodation spending and you get to socialize with like minded people (dont know how many BH's there'd be lol). If I was younger and wanted to travel I would try this.

    Have fun.
