Hi all, im fairly new to traveling but i realy want to get out there and explore :)

Im 18 years old and have always wanted to do the interail around Europe. I intend to go camping instead of Hostels or Hotels (if possible). Would like to know what peoples experience is of this? Ill be going solo, but if there is a singles traveling site that anybody knows which helps to arrange group travel like this, any suggestions and general interail advice will be fine :)

Thanks for your help.

Interrail has ceased to be the bargain it once was. It really depends upon what you want. If you want to explore a certain country it can be cheaper if you use the bus, buy point-to-point or get your hands on an international ticket.

Do you want all of Europe or a certain set of countries?

As for cost, you'll need roughly 50 EUR per day. If you exclude the cost of transport and really watch your budget, you'll need 35 EUR per day.

I did something similar to what you plan last year, only that I travelled all over Italy and not Europe.

Im intent on visiting as many countries as i can, perhaps staying 1 night at each place. Im not on a strict budget, so the ticket looks quite good to me. Did you stay at any Hostels? Whats it like in terms of meeting with fellow travelers?

It will only be for 2 weeks, which means i could visit quite a few places if i only spend perhaps on night there.
