Europe is kind of amazing when you think about it. So many countries so close together. It’s not that difficult to get around and see a lot of different things and experience new places. And Europe has got a really interesting history aswell and I can assure you that you will be amazed during a eurotrip. If you want to travel around Europe – the train is a great way to do so. And if you’re a resident in a European country you should definitly try the InterRail! This is a great way to get to meet new people, explore beautiful places and make memories that will last a lifetime.
You can buy the InterRail pass online or in selected stores. There are a couple of different passes you can buy so make sure you’ll get the right one for you and your wishes. Good to know is that if you’re under 26 you’ll get a discount! When you have your InterRail pass it’s time to plan your trip. Of course you don’t have to plan everything, but a few stops that offer special things to see or do is always good to have in mind. There is a special app, The Rail Planner App, that is a great tool during your trip. With this you can get information about trains and it works offline aswell. If you want to learn more about the InterRail pass you can visit http://www.interrail.eu.
One thing that is good to know before your adventure begins is that you almost always have to make a reservation before you get on the train. And in countries like France, Germany and Italy for example, the reservationfee can be rather expensive. But in the eastern part of Europe it’s still pretty cheap.
If you’re on a tight budget a hostel is a great place for a good nights sleep. Sure you have to share a room with other travellers but this is also a nice way to make new friends. The Hostelworld App is awesome and makes it easy to find a place to stay for the night. Most of the time you can make a reservation just a day ahead. It’s always nice to know that you have somewhere to go when the night comes.
Talk to a couple of friends and see who’s interested in this exciting way to see Europe. Then pack your bags and go!
