Inter-railing 2013

I’ve just come back from the most amazing month travelling around Europe with three of my friends, so I thought I’d post some photos up here for you to see!

We went to 11 places in 25 days: Paris, Belgium, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Austria (we were forced to sleep the night rough in Austria train station because one of our trains were cancelled!), Slovenia, Venice, Lyon, Geneva and Barcelona – pretty intense trip, I’m completely knackered!

It was absolutely incredible though, we saw some really amazing places, and everyone was so friendly and welcoming, I would definitely recommend travelling around Europe; everywhere we went had a really interesting history, so we basically walked around the town centres all day every day, then either went out in the evening or got some sleep for our marathon train journeys – our record one was 23 hours! Ā I have German and Czech heritage but I’ve never been before, so it was lovely to explore my roots and learn about the history (if you’re going to Berlin you must see the holocaust and gay memorials, I cried. They’re really moving) as well as meeting some new people and enjoying the night life.

We also went to a really incredible zoo in Mons, Belgium, and we had such a great time that I said I would write an article about it, so no recipe this week, just some recommendations for places to go if you feel like an adventure. Here are a select few of my photos from the trip, as you can see we had a really great time, and I can’t wait to go back one day.

  1. Wow, looks like you had a brill time. Interrailing has always been on my to-do list, but I have never gotten around to it as something or other always came up. I’ve been to nearly all those places (bar Leon, Geneva & Amsterdam) but I hope some day I’ll interrail around Eastern Europe. Also, I was at the holocaust memorial in Berlin in January and also went to the concentration camp near there … never again, I’m still not right after it, it’s haunting isn’t it?

    • It’s incredibly haunting, but so interesting to learn about because of all the individual stories – I still feel unsettled thinking about it though.
      Eastern Europe would be amazing, hopefully sometime soon! x
