My interrailing experience

As you may have read in previous posts, James and I spent 3 weeks of our summer interrailing around Europe. I can honestly say it was the most amazing experience and will be 3 weeks of my life I will never forget. We did, saw and ate so much (and took far too many pictures!) which meant the time went way too fast!

On average we spent 3 days in each of the seven cities (Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Zagreb) which, I would say was the perfect amount of time. There was more to do/see in some places compared to others, but we never ran out of time. On arrival to each city we took time to look at the map and circle all the places we wanted to visit, which we later crossed out once we'd been there and seen them. We tried to see all the main attractions, eat the traditional food and have a general wander around each of the cities. 

To save money we decided to stay in hostels all the way around until we reached croatia, where we stayed in an amazing hotel. I don't know whether it's just me, but when I thought of a hostel I would think of a rough and pretty dirty place where you were likely to have bed bugs and regret not bringing your own bedsheets, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Every single one of the hostels we stayed in were lovely and they were all so clean. It was also nice to meet and socialise with other people travelling around Europe and it definitely added to our experience. (Although by the end we were definitely ready to spend time in a fancy hotel!) 

I would definitely recommend interrailing to anyone who wants to spend time (and a fair bit of money) travelling around Europe and seeing more of the world. This is just a quick post, but I will be posting more about my interrailing experience, so keep your eyes out! 

Did you go travelling this summer?
