    Wow! I'm impressed with your plans and the fact you have decided to travel alone. Many people don't feel comfy doing that although I don't understand why tbh, it has freedom and creates the opportunity to meet new people.
    Your schedule looks good but is it set in stone (ie all accommodation booked) or flexible if for example you like a particular place and want to stay there an extra day or two?

    Wow! That's really busy! I was wondering if there's any flexibility? I went interrailing last year and it's really hard to visit lots of places in a short space as you get tired after a few days.So you may want to cut out a couple of places? Have you got the interrail app? It has all the train times in one place which is quite useful! Have you looked at how long the trains take as well as they take longer than you would think! Also in some places, especially France, you need to reserve train seats. In italy you have to have a seat reservation as well which costs 10 euros which increases the price significantly as it all adds up! Hope that helps even a bit!

    I'm dying to go inter-railing and I've considered doing it solo, for 3 weeks. But I'm not sure I could do it on my own! Best of luck with your travels and let us know how it is travelling on your own! Enjoy

    How long did you travel for? I think if you're a confident traveller it makes things easier but then again you're as confident as you make yourself.

    About 5 weeks in total - doing just 15 nights this time early June. I'd recommend it! You'll be surprised how many people you meet - hostels, walking tours, bar crawls, just throw yourself at it and you'll meet people.
