It was two years ago when I decided that I had to go somewhere by myself for a month; I worked the whole summer so I had to wait until September to leave.
At first, I wasn't planning to go study English because, you know, I only had a month off and I really didn't want to spend it studying but, then, I thought "actually, that could be a great idea". I didn't have anywhere else to go, and spending a month improving a language (I arrived with an Upper-Intermediate level and I left with an Advanced) is an amazing idea. Especially if you are willing to move out of your country like I am.
Anyway, going to Manchester was a nice experience and I met lots of people.
