Hey there me and 3 friends are thinking about interrailing through europe form the 1st of July-30 July. and we are all 17 and 18 year olds!
Could anybody give me tips about interail trips?
And how much money to take, 1000 euros each would that be enough for 1 month?
And any dangers to be aware of when on an interrail?
bump as I am interested also
Same, gonna go for 3 weeks and spend as little money as possible though...
you'll definitly need more than 1000 euros
i was going to go may not now, what with the pound against the euro- going to cost about 40% more!
Ah wow I'm going with my friends too, but we're staying in Western Europe...
I did spain for a month on a 1000 euros, inc. hostel and travel last year, so it should be fine if you budget carefully-ish. I'll be on a similar amount if/when I inter-rail this summer
Any questions, please feel free to PM.
I am writing this because I was overawed by the great experiences that travelling of this sort can bring, and the way it really can open your eyes to new perspectives.
I went Interrailing this summer with a few friends, spending about 3/4 days in each of the places mentioned below.
1) Eurostar to Paris
2) Interrail from then onwards. First stop- Pamplona for the bull-run... AMAZING
3) Some really random places in Spain on the way to...
4) Barcelona, one of the best cities on the trip. The perfect fusion of culture and all out fun (Note: DO NOT drink three quarters of a bottle of Absinthe ON YOUR OWN and then go traipsing around Barca) [Actually, go for it.. it was quite fun]
8) 17 hour train journey to Budapest
once again, for specifics, feel free to PM
1000 Euros is the perfect sum to take (on a post office card, naturally)
I am genuinely considering doing this in April/May/June, but I am worried by the £'s crash in value. Also, I spent ages looking at the Rouge Guide to Europe on Budget in Waterstones yesterday, and I was left confused by the whole surcharges, night trains, etc....
The whole concept sounds fantastic, though. I really want to visit Germany, Austria, Poland, Czech Rep, Hungary and Croatia, as I've never been to any of these countries. However, at the same time I'd love to see parts of Spain and Italy I've never been to.
