London, England (April 26th – 27th, 2018)

April 26th I arrived at London Gatwick airport at approximately 12:30pm. I bought a train ticket to go to Kings Cross train station but then when I went down to the platform, I just caught the first train that came by that said "London" and ended up going to London Bridge station, approximately 2.4 miles … Continue reading London, England (April 26th – 27th, 2018)

La Spezia, Italy – Part 1 (April 20th – 22nd, 2018)

NOTE:  You will notice on some of my pictures that I've changed my "signature" to Bluegreenpacker.  This is because I was trying to come up with a catchy/cool name for my account on Instragram and I came up with bluegreenpacker.  Pretty much it's because I love blue and green, I have a blue and green backpacks, … Continue reading La Spezia, Italy – Part 1 (April 20th – 22nd, 2018)

Peschiera del Garda, Italy (April 17th – 19th, 2018)

I had all morning to pack. My bus to Peschiera didn't leave until 1:10pm. But per usual, I was packed and ready to go early because I knew I wouldn't walk quite as fast fully loaded and wanted plenty of time to get to the bus stop. Sometime while I was at Marmota Hostel, I … Continue reading Peschiera del Garda, Italy (April 17th – 19th, 2018)

Innsbruck, Austria – Part 2 (April 14th – 16th, 2018)

April 14th The day was shaping up to be another beauty and so I knew it was the day to go up to the top of mountain that was across town. There is the Nordkette cable car that will bring you from the main town level up past the Alpine Zoo to the Hungerburg station … Continue reading Innsbruck, Austria – Part 2 (April 14th – 16th, 2018)

Innsbruck, Austria – Part 1 (April 12th and 13th, 2018)

April 12th Didn't have to get up too early this morning as my train wasn't until a few minutes before 11am. I got to the station and waited for the train to come. I didn't mind the wait though... take a look at this view: On the train, I was looking forward to the ride … Continue reading Innsbruck, Austria – Part 1 (April 12th and 13th, 2018)

Salzburg, Austria (April 9th – 12th, 2018)

I accidently "unpublished" this post when going between my page on Chrome and the WordPress App. So this is basically republishing. 😦  Also, not sure what possessed me to initially write "Van Trapp" instead of Von Trapp.  My bad... I think I fixed that in this updated post. April 9th I was up and going … Continue reading Salzburg, Austria (April 9th – 12th, 2018)

Visiting Family in Dickendorf, Germany (April 3rd – 6th, 2018)

April 3rd It was an early morning at the train station. My high-speed ICE train was leaving the Amsterdam Centraal station a few minutes after 8am so I wanted to be there by 7:30 latest and the way the train schedules worked out, I got there at about 7:10am. As part of my ticket booking … Continue reading Visiting Family in Dickendorf, Germany (April 3rd – 6th, 2018)

Planning, Volendam, and Netherlands Wrap-up (April 1st and 2nd, 2018)

April 1st It was a "Try to wrap my head around this EuroTour" planning kind of day. I got my refund request processed with Eurail and found out that I would be able to get the pass back in the mail before it's pre-activation date (which I had set to 6/4/18 - or 4/6/18 if … Continue reading Planning, Volendam, and Netherlands Wrap-up (April 1st and 2nd, 2018)

Eurail, Interrail, or No Rail?

I feel like most of the knowledge I've gained while traveling isn't exactly applicable to anyone else. It's been my own journey with my own experiences that may or may not help other travelers....UNTIL NOW! I've decided to write about the debate I had with myself whether to use the Eurail Global pass and the … Continue reading Eurail, Interrail, or No Rail?
