Interrailing at 41 yrs old

Travel Forums Europe Interrailing at 41 yrs old

1. Posted by razzle (Budding Member 2 posts) 10y

I am due to go interrailing around Europe this summer between 15th July and 14th August. Wanted to go in my twenties but I had no money at the time and then I was a father at 22 yrd old so have had to wait until now.

Anyway, I am concerned that I am going to appear a little out of place travelling around at 41 so wondered if this is so unusual or whether there are other seniors buying interrail passes?

maybe not buying interrail passes, but there's a lot of seniors who do budget-travelling, and many I met are a lot older than you are.

There's another recent thread on this "Am I too old"-issue in the general talks forum; read it and be reassured :-)

have fun,

Jeez - since when is 41 'senior'? Go for it - travel has no age! In Italy, I overheard a conversation about a 65-year-old man who was biking (as in bicycle) his way through the country.As long as you think you can, you can! Enjoy!

Ok, Razzle is 41 and thinks he's a senior... worries that others will look at him askance because they'll somehow know that he has a railpass... and here I am, 47 years old, taking a hiking trip each summer with my sons and husband, strapping on the backpack, using railpasses and youth hostels, eating in bus and train stations if the situation warrants. Razzle, let's you and me both start acting our ages and strap ourselves into our rocking chairs and let the young whippersnappers do the traveling, what do you say? *grin*

And by the way, I think you're way too old to be using a computer. *hee hee* :P

I'm 26. Is it too late to have kids?
