  1. Wifey and I did an 8 country, 15 city stops in central Europe in 21 days last 2013. This was made possible through eurorail. We rode the trains more than 30 times (from city to city and country to country) and not even once we encountered any train delay.
    EuroRail Tip: When riding using first class in eastern Europe (specially Czeck Republic and Austria) make sure you go to the lounge while waiting for your train. It is like being in an airport business class lounge.

  2. My wife and are are keen to travel more by train. We did Japan by train and frequented travels by the Eurostar. Seeing Europe on the cheap is challenging, but I’d heard about the Euro passes, but haven’t actually tried them. But is it only limited for 1 month?

  3. Ah! This really is a difficult to answer questions and I’m glad someone has taken a stab at it! I guess if you are travelling in a group you’d agree that rail wins hands down though!
