    Interrailing is just a form of backpacking though?

    My friend proposed an incredibly interesting (if near-impossible) proposal, to cycle from London to Morocco, via France and Spain. Would be the best thing in the world.

    I'm determined that I'll go interrailing next summer. I had planned to go this year but never did because of money etcI was also worried about going on my own.

    I may go on a road trip round either Ireland or France in the summer.

    I'm really wanting to go Interrailing this summer. I'm hoping I'll have enough spare cash to pay for it all but looks like I'll be going alone.. and still have to decide where I'd actually want to go as "everywhere" doesn't really help!

    I'm exactly the same, I think I'll concentrate on western europe this time around, the major cities like Paris, Berlin, Rome etc. I am also probably going alone, as none of my friends are available/have money or whatever, but I've heard it's really easy to meet other people in hostels and whatnot I need to get another job to help pay for it soon tho!

    Already been interrailing. Came back 4 months ago. I will be going travelling again this summer, no question. Where I have no idea; the trans-siberian looks quite appealing. Otherwise finland, baltic states and northern Europe.
