Hi folks, my name is Jim. I have been to Europe before but that was when I was in my 20’s.  Now in my 60’s my partner and I are planning to visit Europe in December of 2023 (as our first trip), and a second trip in Spring or Fall of 2024. Neither of us has ever used rail service as a means of transportation on vacation but it sounds very affordable and doable. Instead of using hotels we plan on using MrBnB for places to stay.

Hey community! 👋🏽

I’m Sascha from Hamburg, Germany. I am 29 years old and I’m starting my first Interrail trip from the end of May until the beginning of July. I will travel through Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. It would be nice to meet some one of you guys! If you are on the road the same time, hit me up! I am always down to grab a coffee or beer, do photoshoots and of course for partying!

 

Greetings! :)

Sascha

My name is Eric. At the time of my writing this I’m 69 years old. I’ve done many things over the years including logging hundreds of hours scuba diving around the world (mostly the Americas), 50 years of motorcycling with some racing mixed in, owning and flying a private aircraft, working as a software developer, music venue owner, machinist, gas station attendant and more. I retired at 63 and moved from the US to Spain. We like to travel, having logged over 40 countries so far. I plan to add a few more in the next few months.

I find European trains to be a very comfortable way to travel. We’re planning in spending part or all of the month of May on the rails this year.

Hello I'm Alan from Ireland and currently on a trip. Having gone from Valencia via France (delayed by the recent strike/protest yesterday) I'm now in Genoa and going to Florence tomorrow before continuing my trip towards Romania via Slovenia & Croatia. If anyone has experience of similar route I would like to hear from you. I have also commented on a thread regarding travel in France for another person planning a trip if anyone is planning travel in or through France which may be useful.

Hello to you all, I’m Shane, retired in Dubai. I have a passion for music. My wife and I are embarking on a summer trip through Europe for the first time. Whilst we do like train travel, the buying of tickets, understanding reservations and using the Pass systems is a steep learning curve. We’re grateful to have discovered this forum and look forward to sharing our observations.

My name is Paul and my family of 6 are embarking on a 2 week quick fire tour of Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. Kids range from 6 to 14 so this is going to be a bit crazy. We hope to travel lots more by train for European holidays if this goes well.

Ich möchte im Sommer24 mal für 3Monate Interrail machen. 

Habt Ihr einen Tipp,wie ich das am besten organisieren?

Ich möchte z.B.gerne die Nordlichter sehen,mal nach Amsterdam, auch GB&Irkand will ich sehen.

Aber natürlich auch mal nach Gibralter&an die portugiesische Küste.

Desweiteren steht selbstverständlich auch der Gladier Express auf meiner Liste.In Italien sollte man auch mal gewesen sein.😉Ich könnte mir vorstellen da von Nord nach Süd zu reisen& zum Schluss nach Griechenland mit dem Schiff.

Geld das Ticket eigendlich auch für die Türkei?Wenn ja,wie weit?Istanbul liegt schließlich z.T.auch in Asien.

Wenn Ihr mehr über mich wissen wollt, fragt doch einfach. 😋🤔

Hello good folks of Eurail community!

My name is Kathi. I am an educator who loves to travel and learn about new places, people and culture.

We are from Wisconsin, and are embarking on our very first journey to France at the beginning of June and are excited, but anxious, as we are still learning how to use our Eurail pass and how to navigate the trains. 

 We have been to London, and the Rhine River area in Germany last year and absolutely loved both areas! We were met with interesting things to do and beautiful areas to explore! All the people we met were helpful and lovely!

I’m looking forward to chatting with you all and learning from you. Have safe travels everyone!

Kathi

Hi everyone! I’m originally from England, living in Australia. I’m bringing my two teenage sons to Europe for almost four weeks and I’m planning to explore Europe with them by train. I had a wonderful month interrailing in 1988 as student and want them to have as good a time as I did! Planning on starting in UK, then onto Paris via Eurostar, then Italy and Greece. I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions as we get closer to December when we are going.

Hallo zusammen!

Ich bin neu hier.

Grundsätzlich fahre ich einfach gerne mit dem Zug.

Auch interessieren mich mal andere Städte/Länder, wo ich nicht unbedingt Urlaub machen würde. 

Grundsätzlich bin ich ein kommunikativer Mensch.Nur leider ist mein Englisch eher sehr schlecht.

 

Nächstes Jahr (2024) möchte ich Interrail das 1.mal nutzen. Ich möchte gleich "voll Einsteigen "mit dem 3Monatsticket.

Hat hier jemand Erfahrungen, was man sehen sollte?Wie &wann buchen Ich am besten Züge?

Möchte mich evtl.auch jemand (ein Stück)begleiten?

Ich freue mich auf viele nützliche Tipps &Tricks. 

Liebe Grüße &alle Zeit eine gute Fahrt,

Klaus

Hi there,

I’m Damaris from Germany. 
This summer is my first trip with Interrail. It is amazing and I love to see so many places in a short time. I love to connect with people all over the world and love to learn new languages. My whole life I traveled with the car and stayed at camping places. I only flew a few times, but with a car or a train you can see how beautiful the different landscapes are.

Hallo Grüezi!

Ich heisse Rampi und komme aus der Schweiz. Meine Leidenschaft ist auch das Zugfahren in Europa natürlich wenn ich Ferien habe aber sonst fahre ich fast jeden Tag Hin und Zurück mit dem Zug zur Arbeit. Meine erste Reise mit Interrail ist schon paar Jahre her da hatte ich den One Country Pass für Deutschland wo ich Köln, Berlin und Stuttgart besuchte. In diesem Jahr April 2023 hatte ich einen Global Pass meine Reise startete in Basel-Paris-London-Brüssel-München. Es war eine tolle Reise mit dem Zug was ich auf jedenfall vorziehen werde im gegensatz zum fliegen. Eine nächste Interrail Reise ist in Planung aber noch nicht entschieden falls ja wären das meine Wunschroute:

  1. Stockholm-Kopenhagen-Hamburg
  2. Luzern-Venezia-Ljubljana-Zagreb-Bratislava-Wien

Ich wünsche allen Leuten die gerade auf eine Reise sind eine gute und sichere Reise:)

Hi, my name is Nirmal. I am a retired Canadian visiting Turkiye for a while and want to find out how to travel Eurail. I’m a bit of a novice, but the little bit of traveling I have done, I’ve done it alone. I want to travel from Ankara to London and just beginning to look at how to do this. So, nice to meet you, looking forward to interacting.

Das sollte relativ problemlos mit dem Interrail Global Ticket gehen.

Hierbei bleibt nur noch die Überlegung, wieviel Zeit zu Verfügung steht, damit man sich für das individuelle, beste Ticket entscheiden kann.

Hi.. I am Fefe, from Portugal... 44/male.

I like to travel and know about countries, cultures and more... I think to have my first interain soon... Thank you. Obrigado
