My Top Places to See in Europe

My Top Places to See in Europe

Mainland Europe might be right next door but I feel there’s always somewhere new to explore, especially as I’m trying to squeeze in as much as I can. As I said, I’ve cut Finland from my route for being too far out, and I put Spain and Portugal in the cold as I’ve done them a lot before and don’t feel the need to go back just yet. In the evenings when I review my route, which is every evening now until I go, a few places shout at me from my list as particularly special.

*Updated 2018. When I left University my plan was to go interrailing with a couple of friends but the trip didn’t materialise, which was definitely a good thing for my wallet. It also allowed me to get into a pretty good career path where three years on I’m confident enough to take a summer off exploring.

Getting My Interrail Global Pass

When I booked my interrail global pass it was late at night and I hit purchase in a rather zombie-like state. If anything could make this trip seem real, it was going to be getting the ticket from interrail.eu in the post.
