InterRail shoplog: cosmetics & fashion

I allowed myself to do a bit of shopping in each city I was in. I mostly shopped beauty bits as they are small and not heavy, so they’re easy to pack and not too heavy. I didn’t really shop for clothes until the end of my trip. Shopping for cosmetics in different countries was…

Interrail #7: Copenhagen

My 9th and final stop of the trip was Copenhagen. Together with Barcelona this city was high on my ‘to visit’ list (especially after watching Borgen earlier this year) and so I stayed here for 3 days so I’d really have some time to see the city. By this time I was getting quite exhausted,…

Interrail #6: Vienna, Prague, Berlin

At the halfway point of my trip and I was about to visit 3 different cities in less than a week. From Venice, I set off on a day filled with traveling to the Austrian capital of Vienna. It took me straight through the Alps and made for some fairytale inspiring views. I traveled from…

Interrail #3: Brussels & Paris

Interrail trip #2: what I pack

In yesterday’s post I told you that for my 22 day trip I was going to try to pack as lightly as possible. I wanted to take my large, 23.5 liter Herschel bag (click for a full review of the bag) and a smaller backpack that I bought at Forever 21 2 years ago. The…

Interrail trip #1: preparation

This post kicks off my 7 part travel series on my Interrail trip which I took recently. I returned less than a week ago and I’m brimming with excitement and the urge to share my stories with you. For those of you that don’t know: I went on a 22 day solo train trip around…

Summer travel plans

I’m so excited for today’s post! I’ve literally been dying to finalize my summer travel plans and to tell you all about it. Last week I finally did it and made all the arrangements for one of my most daring trips yet. The reason why it’s daring is because a) I’ll be by myself (which…
