Me entering in the train in Lisbon, Zagreb and the Berlin wall
2016 marks 10 years I made the interrail. A decade has passed since I made my first big trip, one of the most memorable.
Travel through Europe by train turned out to be the perfect way to discover the ‘old continent’ and since then this mean of transport became my favorite (even if today I travel more by plane, because it´s cheaper and doesn´t require so much time – if I save time on the displacement, I can enjoy the destiny for longer).
A journey that made me discover the diversity and richness of Europe but also made me connect with other travellers, admiring maps, sharing stories. And the exchange of tips, obviously.

10 years ago internet was not so present and travellers were the most reliabe source on the road: to know the best hostel and the coolest bar, an unknown city that should not be missed and even the timetable of a train in particular.
Another memory I have from my interrail is the feeling of freedom: I could decide where to go and how long I wanted to stay there…
What about the feeling of discovery? It is amazing to embark one night in a city and wake up in the next day in another. As naturally I am a morning person, it was the perfect time to start to discover a new destination.
Nowadays, I´m glad to look back and remember my interrail. I made it 10 years ago but it is an experience that lasts forever.
p.s: Sometimes I dream about doing another interrail, reporting it here, day by day, city by city. It would be amazing! But for now is just a dream…
