Interrail through Europe! (part 1)

DSC_1343After our beautiful sail trip through Greece, Italy and France, we started our Interrail trip through Europe. Starting in Marseille, we went to visit our friends in Bordighera, Italy.

There is nothing like walking through an old Italian town with good friends…

And back to Marseille where we continued our way up north through beautiful France, spectacular Swizz and up through Germany to Holland.

First we thought we had to sit up all the way through the night, but we were very excited when we found out that the seats folds down completely. (Train though Germany)

To unload our sailing equipment and pack our camping gear, we had a stop-over in Holland with the family. From there we booked the Eurostar from Brussel Midi to London St. Pancras. This ticket is included in the Global Interrail ticket but you do pay the bookingfees.

Biggest challenge with an Interrail pass for all of Europe is where to go… 😃

In London we took the train to our friends in Wellingborough, and what a great train experience! First class traveling, is awesome with complementary drinks and food!

Trains in England and Scotland has some of the best service in all of Europe.

After Wellingborough we headed for the highlands of Scotland, o my, this is traveling by train on its best: amazing views!

It is difficult to get good pictures on a moving train, but the views are still phenomenal  😍

Corrour: a tiny station in the middle of nowhere, no roads, no houses just nature. But if you do want to stay: the signal-tower (the glass-tower just on the top right on the photo) would make for a very special experience.

What we really love about journeys by train is that it is one of the best and most environmental friendly ways to travel. And Interrail is not only for young people, everyone can enjoy an Interrail trip through Europe. Just go and have fun…
