Hello Eurorail community!
I’m planning a 2 week impromptu trip starting Christmas through Jan 7, flying in/out of London from the US. Hoping to visit several countries by train as this will be first time in this part of world and I feel that would give me a great opportunity to see the beautiful countryside and meet people along the way . Thinking something like: London>France>Switzerland>Austria or Germany>Belgium>Amsterdam>London>Home
I know its ambitious but feel it's doable. I’m traveling solo, will stay at AirBnBs along the way, and mainly looking to experience the local culture, meet great people and have fun. I’m going through the most challenging time of my life but very optimistic about future and a big fan of staying present and following dreams and goals, Life is short
Hoping to get any/all advice, recommendations from this experienced community, such as:
-Do I need to make advanced train reservations for each stop? I hoped to keep my options open but understand holiday crowds may require reservations
-Any advice of cities/towns to visit along the way, I dont feel the need to stay in London or Paris more than1-2 days on this trip, and would like to experience smaller cities, holiday markets, etc would be of more interest
Thx in advance everyone, happy holidays to each of you!
