Hello GerryKhong:)

Does the 3000£, include the cost of the rail ticket.
If not, what does the rail ticket cost.
If it does not include the cost of the rail ticket, u certainly have planty of money. I usually spend 30 to 50 Euros per day, when travelling in Europe, not including intercity transport.

Please note that in Italy it is cheaper to buy point-to-point than to use Interrail. I took my (national) pass back to the shop after figuring out that instead of 139 EUR for 4 days in one month I could get 2 months travel on the route I wanted for 80 EUR. (I'm going Palermo-Venice.)

You might want to contact the member "GyuriFT" of (Sorry TP!) - he is a gold mine of information on travelling cheaply around Europe by train.

Play around a bit with for ideas how much a point-to-point-ticket would cost you if you buy the ticket in the UK.

the cost of the rail is excluded from the 3000 pounds. with an interrail pass, i dont need to worry about the cost of transport.

bare in mind, i still have to find my way to southeast asia after my trip in europe. if i ever lack funds, i will just buy an airticket straight back to my home country.

having 2 nights ago taken a night train from istanbul to sofia i would say - never again, if i can help it - night train is only option on this route. constant passport checks, hostility for no other reason than boredom from police. i had to share a tiny room, bunkbeds, with an insane toothless man who reeeeked of booze and drank about 5 beers. he also started smoking after i asked him not to. im takin day trains from now on cause you wont get any sleep, you can bank on that. love istanbul and sofia though
