So looking for some advise! After literally years of wanting to go - Looks like i'll be coming there early next year! It sounds far away, but in the scheme of tickets, visa, passport, injections, organising a place to live, it's not as far as it seems!
My fiancee and I will be there for a year - maybe more, not sure yet, but we can both get working holiday (1yr of work) visa's, so that's easy.
However, we (or at least me!) will be most likely working in London somewhere (I'm a software tester who'll have almost 3yrs experience when i get there, any jobs out? ), so I want to be within ~45mins train ride from london. I've researched, i'd want a furnished place, studio apartment (needs laundry facilities), or 1 bdroom apartment. I believe ~£600 pcm should cut it... Is that realistic?
Can anyone give me some good locations to live? I'm not worried about pubs/clubs, don't want or need to be anywhere near them, more to trains/tube rather than 10 busses! We won't have a car for at least the first few months i'd guess, so what safe (boring is fine!) area's are there for my criteria? I'm appreciating any help or sites you can direct me to!!!
Any info is welcome (even 'stay home' is OK! )
