Recently I wrote about how to overcome post-trip blues, but I didn’t touch upon one of the best ways to cheer yourself up after a big trip: planning a mini jaunt! As I’m sure all my fellow travel bloggers will agree, it’s always best to have a new adventure in mind to keep your cultural side in tune and even that sometimes, you don’t need a reason, just a ticket 😉View Post
At Get Jaunty, interrail is a very popular way to travel through Europe. I spent a summer backpacking and used interrail as a budget friendly way of seeing as many destinations as I could safely. From Norway to Paris via Eastern Europe, you’re in the right place for first-hand experience.
Each post offers tips and advice as well as a run down of what to do in each location. I share the good and the bad and offer a realistic view if you’re thinking of planning your own trip.
There’s a lot here, so use the search bar on the right for a specific place, or start here with one of my earliest posts on what to pack. Get in touch with any questions – I’d be happy to help.
My first solo trip was when I moved to Canada for six months in 2009 as part of a study abroad programme. I was much younger and didn’t take the time to think about whether I’d get culture shock, or even reverse culture shock when I returned. I spent a lot of time planning before I left and whilst I was there, was too busy having fun to really feel any nostalgia for home or think about being back.View Post
This review post of my travels is something I’ve been subconsciously putting off since I came back, as it feels like the end of one of the best times of my life. Now I’m back, the trip almost feels like a dream and I have to remind myself that it happened and that for two months I lived every day to the full, seeing some of the best destinations the world has to offer!View Post
Rounding off my backpacking trip through Europe, I spent the final week of my travels in cloudy Edinburgh, the cultural Scottish capital. Having explored the city in 2012, I was specific about how I wanted to spend the week, it being my first time at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.View Post
