The miserable March weather has probably got us all planning our summer getaways a little earlier than usual. If you are in between studies or taking a gap year, one of the most popular and cost effective ways to explore is by InterRailing.
Whether you want to stay in one country or hop over borders, the rail pass gives flexibility to stay longer in the places you love. Whilst you are away, there are numerous activities and excursions available to make your summer the most memorable yet.
T}ake advantage of free attractions
Many major cities offer a City sightseeing pass, offering huge discount off major attractions. London’s rich history means it is a maze of galleries, museums and churches, many of which do not charge entry, but ask for a donation. Alternatively, places such as Copenhagen offer free admission once a week. This means you can pack much more culture into your trip.
Go wild camping in Norway
In certain parts of Europe, wild camping is permitted. This means that, subject to certain rules, you can find yourself waking up on the doorstep to some of the continent’s most dramatic scenery. This will save you money and provide you some brilliant photographs.
Drink in a real Irish pub
The Irish are famed for their good music, good humour and good drink. Discover one of the many hidden gems and enjoy a night of stories, craic and a real pint of Guiness. Just make sure you remember the way back to your hotel!
Take a hike in Italy
A great country for getting outdoors. Rent a bike and see the sights in Florence, ride on horseback through vineyards in the Tuscan countryside or set yourself a challenge with a day excursion up Mount Etna.
Talk like a local
If you find yourself in a city for longer than a few days, why not have a stab at learning the local language? Whilst it’s true in many of the cities you can get by with English, a few words of the native tongue could go a long way. Language schools such as ESL http://www.esl-schools.org
offer a wide variety of courses in beautiful locations which could set you off to a great start for your European adventure.
