So, I've decided it's about time I had an adventure, and thought about going to England
The thing is, I'm deathly afraid of flying (and heights in general). I went to see a friend in California a few years back, had the first five airplane rides of my life going out there and back to Georgia, and never got over my take-off induced panic. (I would have preferred to go by bus, but the person I was going to see bought the ticket and insisted I come by plane since it was quicker.) So, knowing that I'll never work up the nerve to fly over water without some heavy duty sedation, I've decided to go by boat. I know it's expensive, which is why I'm job-hunting. I can look up costs and everything, but what I'm looking for is information on one-way cruises that would perhaps allow me to spend a couple months over there instead of a round-trip where I have to come straight back. I was going to ask a friend of mine to join me, but she's notoriously unreliable on these kinds of things, so does anyone with a lot of travel experience know of any sort of groups I might be able to join that would be interested in doing the same thing? This is going to take me AT LEAST a year to save up for, so I've got plenty of time to do lots of research. I'm just new to anything other than being a passenger on family road-trips, and need some starting pointers. I didn't get airsick, and I'm not usually prone to motion sickness (just near-sightedness-induced migraines if I read in the car) so, hopefully, I won't get seasick, but I'll be sure to take precautions anyway. Oh, I forgot to include this earlier: Is there some sort of work permit I can get, so I can get a job as a waitress or something in case I wind up going over budget?

I don't know if you would be interested in this or not but you might want to try getting in touch with a company called Maersk. They have vessels going all over the world all the time and you can pay passage on one of their vessels which is cheaper than a cruise ship. They feed you and will get you where you are... More
