    Me and some friends (5 or 6) were planning a trip this summer, tho we faced some divergences on whether we should do an interrail or a regular trip to another country and just stay there for a week. I started the idea of the interrail as the price options were apparently cheap and I mean who doesn't want to travel through Europe? Nonetheless, as we started planning the stay and destinations/train stops I started getting interested in a normal trip to Barcelona. This was because 1- it's not that cheap if you want to visit several countries and the youth hostels in each place in Europe is astonishingly expensive plus the extra spendings of food drinks and "living" 2- we would be spending more time on the train than actually in cities. You go to a lot of countries (more less 6) and besides being tired and starting to accumulate physical and emotional fatigue. 3- I don't think it matters that we have been to loads of countries, as I prefer to actually absorb and grasp its culture... 4- because of the fatigue and the train schedules we wouldn't be able to party and go out at night, at least for long... the trains sometimes arrive in the mornings early plus we d be walking all day we really needed some good nights of sleep... 5- we d have multiple mandatory" stops in cities that d be in the middle of the destinations, and some of these we are not really fond of.
    I think this is what matters the most because at the moment what I really need is to have fun. To party. To meet some people in clubs and laugh. Something outside my country or "comfort zone". The cultural stuff is also very important and I am interested in visiting museums and stuff but right now what I want is that. In our group there are some divisions (3 want partying, 2 want cultural stuff, in which one of the last group says he wants to balance both but still gives priority to culturalism).

    So we found amazing prices and stay for Barcelona in a youth hostel which I believe to be perfect for the leisure components + night out. Plus Barcelona has an atmosphere and night "activity" I am fond of, I think it would be an amazing trip. What do you think we should do, based on your experience? And, this might seem a bit out of the blue, but is it easy to get laid in these destinations/Barcelona which have an intense night activity and are very free and chilled? The youth hostels what are this even like and is it easy to meet people in there to have fun? Like I said, we are needing to have fun and have awesome experiences right now before going to university.

    I was with you until you asked if it was easy to get laid in Barcelona. Ew. Please get a grip before you go.

    Interrailing is expensive- if you don't have the £££ then don't go. It isn't the party holiday you want.

    If you go to Barcelona it is a very cosmopolitan city. Go soak up some culture. By all means enjoy the bars/restaurants etc but if you really want to have a good holiday and meet people you need to refrain from being a 'Brit' on holiday.
