This December, I'm heading off on a mini trip around Europe.

I'm leaving from my home town of Newcastle, UK, where I'm taking the ferry to Amsterdam. From there I'm taking the train over the next few weeks where I am visiting the following

Amsterdam, Holland
Berlin, Germany
Krakow, Poland
Prague, Czech Rep
Vienna, Austria
Venice, Italy
Rome, Italy
Bern, Switzerland
Paris, France
Brussels, Belgium
Amsterdam, Holland

I hope to take sleeper trains through the night to save on hostels and most importantly, daylight, as I am a bit restricted for time and hope to use all the daylight time to see what I can.

Some places, I am only spending, say 1 full day, and a night, before heading off, though have a few days spare, which is where I'm looking to share among the trip in places maybe worth staying for 3 nights.

If anyone has done a similar trip, any advice would be great, like Rail passes. Good sites for train timetables within Europe would be useful too.... Plus any good information on the places I'm staying, like Hostels, places to eat and any other general info...


PS..... planning a trip is sooo exciting

May I ask what this is under review for???? I'm confused... I have planned more than one trip which I have carried out on here and have never been under review.....

Am I wrong to feel a bit offended???????

Please someone explain......

Many thanks

You are not under review. The poster with the nickname "Sarim" replied to this thread purely for purposes of promoting his website. Such promotional posts aren't allowed under the terms & conditions here, so I flagged that post for one of the moderators of this forum to take a look at. Said moderator will most likely delete the post (if the post had been less promotional, it might also have resulted in merely the links being snipped, but this here is a pretty clear case of the post going to be deleted).

All of that has nothing to do with your question - just "bad luck" that a spammer happened to reply to your thread. As for your original question, I'm afraid I don't have any advice (at least not beyond what I already gave your cousin in his thread).

I see....

Thanks for clearing that up, cheers...

Yeah I read the reply to my cousins post, cheers, and totally agree. We have since removed a few places trying to consintrate on our main places of interest.
