The Great Escape to Brighton

The Great Escape 2015 21 Brighton is easily one of my favourite places in England. Whenever I’m there I exclaim loudly that I’m going to move there as my next home after London, when that’ll happen I’m not sure, but one day! A girl can dream.

Interrailing: Absolutely Amazing Amsterdam

Untitled

Getting the train to Amsterdam was pretty sad. There had been a point around 9 days in (Vienna-ish) when I’d be a little ‘Right, I’m done being on my own!’; this feeling it had gone full circle and by the time I was stepping on my last train in Frankfurt I’d returned to ‘OHHH I NEVER WANNA GO HOMEEEEE’.

Interrailing: German goodness

Interrailing Germany 1

So after Budapest I got a night train to Germany… not an experience I’d like to relive. The beds on the German trains are perpendicular to the direction of travel meaning any time the train put it’s breaks on (which strangely happens a lot between 9pm and 5am..) you were close to being thrown off the bunk! Arriving in Frankfurt at 5am definitely made for a difficult day!

Interrailing - My house in Budapest

Interrailing Budapest 10

1000 miles from home, eight days and seven trains later I made it to Budapest, the furthest point from home and probably my very favourite part of my trip. There aren’t many European cities that I’ve been to that felt quite as homely as Budapest did. The big long main streets juxtaposed with the narrow cut throughs and alleyways of the eighth district really brought together my favourite parts of some of my other top cities.

Interrailing - Very Vienna


Untitled
I left Salzburg on an early train to head over to Vienna with a green smoothie in hand (days of rye bread and cold meats were getting somewhat repetitive!) and a spring in my step. What I arrived to though was a thoroughly depressing, hot and humid city – not what I was expecting after a few days of sea air and mountain breezes.

Interrailing - The hills are alive with the sound of music

Untitled Next stop on my trip was Austria. Now, I'd never been to anywhere in Austria before so I went for the two big hitters -Salzburg and Vienna. One thing I made sure to do before I left was not plan too much; with travelling alone I made sure to have my trains and hostels booked, for safety more than anything, but the rest I left to fate. Helpfully though, my wonderful pal put little guides together for me (lord knows how she still has the patience to do stuff like this for me after nearly 13 years!). These had a few polite phrases in and some of the more off the wall things to do. For me Austria was a blank canvass with plenty of excitement to be had.

Interrailing - My Italian Adventure

Interrailing Italy 30

Well finally! Here at last – what is essentially going to be loads of posts of my holiday photos! What you should know is that these posts will vary between being ‘guides’ (by guide I mean, here are the good places I went to that if you happen to be near you should take a look at) and mainly photos.
