Interrail Europe

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.

Falling in Love: A Weekend in Monte Carlo

Falling in Love: A Weekend in Monte Carlo

New life plan; become a millionaire, move to Monte Carlo and drive a sports car. On Friday afternoon I left La Spezia and arrived for my weekend in Monte Carlo just before dusk. My first glimpse was from the train tracks and I can’t totally describe how I felt. I’ve wanted to come here for so long and couldn’t wait to see it all; it was almost like waiting to meet a person, a pen pal, rather than a place. My hotel, as Monaco doesn’t do hostels, was right in the centre on a street that looked like it was…
