That's not really a question that can be answered on your behalf by others. There are several factors which will determine how often you will fly. Some you will be able to control and some you simply won't. Those you cannot control will frustrate. Your personal circumstances will influence how often you fly.
So, my take on it.
I concluded that the inevitable cancelled flights for the whole range of possibilities, weather, aircraft tech, instructor availability, my own life getting in the way, would frustrate me to the extent it would detract from the experience. So, I opted to go to the US and concentrate on learning to fly. Although the reasons above are what lead me to do it full time, I had never considered the enjoyment of being immersed in aviation every day. Spending all day every day at the airfield, flying every day, mixing with a dozen or so other students, indeed living and breathing aviation.
Not to mention not having any personal issues getting in the way, added significantly to the whole experience.
If I had to choose again that's exactly how I would do it. Maybe not in the US though. I would take the time out and immerse myself in it. What I would do differently is to get the exams out the way before flying. Flying two or three times a day and spending the time in between and evenings with head in books and sitting exams made it much more difficult than it needed to be.
I did it in Florida over Xmas and New Year. I experienced all sorts of weather from very hot humid days which created very thermal and rough flying conditions, ice on the wings a couple of mornings, winds that had us laugh at the trucks on the interstate below pass us…
Irrespective of how or where you do it there will be compromises.
