Are you sure this is for you? This will be a huge investment that even though is nice can cause you a big loss of cash - and sometimes health.
If you are a picky person make sure you give it up. I am not trying to be a downer, I am just being real. I have friends who did this and regret it profusely as they just spent a lot of money and when they got there there was nothing they could effectively do to help.
They came back home with a holw in their bank accounts and worms.
