Seeing as this is only my second post, I thought I’d give you a little more info about the trip I’m planning (since you’re joining me I guess it’s only polite). I’m attempting InterRailing across Europe with my best friend, we both need to catch a break and this seemed to be the perfect time. Friday night was meant to be our “let’s plan and book everything night” but my God were we overestimating ourselves! We managed to book Rome as the first city, which was exciting but a little disheartening seeing as we didn’t accomplish quite as much as we’d have liked. Still, we’re going somewhere for now at least!
While I think of it, a quick tip – if you’re thinking of doing InterRailing too, be aware that you can’t use the pass in your own country, meaning you have to fly to your first destination. At least that’s what we found – do comment below if you have an alternatives/ways round that.
So yes, Rome is first on the list. Then we’re hoping to go to Verona for Juliet’s House (I want to write her a letter – I’m a romantic, what can I say?!) and then we’re heading to Milan for a couple of days because visiting Venice was much too expensive (it’s still on my bucket list of places to go though, simply because it looks so interesting and beautiful). Originally, we’d started with a list of near enough 12 countries that we’d always longed to see but time restrictions and money constraints quickly put us in our place. So until things are booked all the cities I mention are merely hopes and dreams for the time being. The next few days and weeks should change all that though!
(I’d say if you’re planning a similar trip, make a list of places you want to go and then half it. And maybe half it again and that might be more realistic…)
If you have any recommendations of places to visit in the Italian cities I mentioned do let me know! Or if you know of any restaurants/secret hideaways/bars/hostels – you name it, i’m interested so nothing is too irrelevant. Grazie!
