On 30th August, my friend Aaron and I will be on our way to Europe for an inter-railing tour of 4 European countries. I’ve mentioned this trip a lot in #budgettravelhr, so I thought it was about time that I gave you a run down of our trip itinerary.
London Stansted –> Budapest
We’ll be starting at London Stansted and flying into Budapest, Hungary. We’ve got three nights in Budapest and after seeing lots of recent blog posts about the city, I can’t wait to visit. It’s supposed to be a cheap city to visit, so hopefully we’ll be able to see lots of amazing tourist sights without it costing too much.
Budapest –> Vienna
We’ll then be heading across the border to Austria and staying in Vienna for 2 nights. There’s a brilliant high speed rail service between Budapest and Vienna, so the journey should be around 2.5 hours. We chose Vienna as our next stop largely for this reason; we want to spend as little time as possible on the train during this trip. This will be my second time in Austria but first time in Vienna – I went to Salzburg in 2011.
Vienna –> Prague
I was in Prague for 5 nights back in April, so this is really just a brief stop on the way to Berlin. Vienna to Prague is around 4 hours, which is still not too long a journey. We’ll be in Prague for 2 nights, having a relaxing couple of days before getting the last train of our trip.
Prague –> Berlin
Our final destination is Berlin. Berlin will probably be the most jam-packed part of our trip as there’s such a long list of sights we want to see. I’ve been to Berlin briefly before, but I hope to explore a lot more of the city on our inter-railing trip. We’ll be in Berlin for 3 nights and the journey from Berlin to Prague is also around 4 hours.
Berlin –> London Stansted
We’ll then fly back to the UK from Berlin, with lots of stories and photos from our tour.
I can’t wait for our trip, we’ve been planning it since last September.
Now it’s July, it really is only just around the corner.
Have you ever been inter-railing?
