Hi guys! So I'm travelling across Europe in June and I am extensively researching into where I am going and train times etc. About 2 months ago, I realised I have too many countries so I managed to narrow it down but now I'm just wondering how the hell do I get from Macedonia (Skopje) to Italy (Naples) without going through Greece (takes too much time)?!

Any advice or answers would be extremely helpful.

Many thanks,

Rosie

InterRail is a method of European train travel that allows travellers to move freely between countries with access being granted by a travel card known as an "InterRail Global Pass". Valid for one month, this card is available to travellers all over the world. There is also the option of buying an "InterRail One Country Pass" which provides unlimited travel access throughout one specific European country. InterRailing is amazing because this kind of travel offers you the chance to experience so any different countries and climates in such a short amount of time. You can be on a beach in Barcelona one day, and then trekking up a mountain in the Alps the next.

There are certain things you should consider before InterRailing though. If you aren't traveling alone, be sure to travel with somebody you know well because you will be spending LONG periods of travel time in each other's company. However, if you are alone, there is always the chance to meet people as you travel as fellow interRailers are often single people and everyone is in the same situation as you and want to meet new people. This is often the best way to travel as you can travel to your own timetable.

It's also advisable not to take too much luggage when interRailing. You're going be doing a lot of moving around so it's best to travel light. Just pack your basic essentials. This might mean you will have to go without buying some souvenirs and leaving behind a few of your luxuries, but travelling on the go without much luggage is all part of the InterRail experience. The clothes you do bring with you should also be as light as possible, as a weighty rucksack will be awkward for carrying around for extended periods of time.

It's also a good idea to book a hostel or a hotel in advance before you travel to each destination. Many InterRailers choose to sleep in a train station in between journeys which can be very dangerous and not nearly as good an option as it sounds, because even if your next train is just a few hours away, it's best not to hang around in such an area, especially if you don't speak the language of the country.

InterRailing is truly one of the most incredible ways to travel. If you want to see Europe in all its amazing glory, InterRailing is the best choice around.
Taking on an adventurous travel option is a much more satisfying travel experience than a regular boring holiday at the beach. So whatever takes your fancy, whether it be interRailing across Europe, skydiving in South America or climbing the famous Mt. Kilimanjaro for a charity in Africa, be sure to try something creative for your holiday this year.

Hi Rosie.

I too am planning on travelling in Europe in June. I went in 2012 for 5 weeks and it was amazing, you will love it! Are you buying a interrail ticket?

I didnt get one the first time I went. We booked all journeys indervidually.We mainly travelled by train, Especially in Italy, the views are amazing and the trains are pretty decent. Are you going to Pompeii? It was great!

We wanted to get from Nice to Barcalona and because we didnt have loads of time and didn't want a massive train journey we took a short hall flight. Generally you can get them cheap especially if you book in advance.

Are you going on your own?

If there is anything else you want to know let me know and I'll see if I can help.

If not, have an amazing time,

Charlie

I realise that my question about are you buying an interrail ticket is a stupid one considering the title is called Interrailing across Europe! Please ignore that bit, its been a long day.....
