Niamh's Interrail diary Part 1 - departing Dublin

After 6 months of planning and saving we off on a trip if a lifetime!

Myself and 3 of my best friends are getting ready to travel around Europe together for almost a month via train. We have our global InterRail passes at the ready, route planned out and all hostels booked and ready to go!

I feel nervous, excited and apprehensive all at once. Even though we have everything planned (as best we could) I just know something will go wrong along the way, whether it be a missed train connection or potentially running out of money!

Our route consists of the following:

  • Amsterdam
  • Berlin
  • Prague
  • Vienna
  • Lake Bled
  • Rijeka
  • Budapest

We are finishing off our trip with a 7-day long music festival called ‘Sziget’ in Budapest with headline acts such as Rihanna, Sia, Kodaline, David Guetta, Hardwell and many more!  Budapest is also the venue for this year's InterRail Summer Party on 8th August.


I’m going to write a blog about our adventures at each stop along the way which will hopefully give anyone considering this type of experience a final push to book it and not miss out on an opportunity such as this!
