How about in Britain somewhere? :p I'm not sure where there might be  
space for us all though. And I would actually prefer another trip  
away, it's good fun. Just not in the immediate future as many of us  
have only just been away to Berlin...

This is probably my major concern, though I'm working on my monetary  
situation. :) Also, during off peak times (not weekends, not holiday  
weeks) I can probably get ridiculously cheap flights through RyanAir  
to European countries. They're often 1p each way. Though there are  
still food and other living costs while away.

If people trust other people with their computers we can probably  
work shifts or something. ;)

English is your first choice? I guess that's because we all speak  
English. :D Berlin did make me want to learn German to some degree.
