I thought I’d share with you some of my ideas about train trips through Europe it would be cool to take. I’m assuming of course that they are actually all possible. I haven’t done every country by any standard, I’ve just created routes based on location, the way that the countries compliment each other and what using a train as the main mode of transport would be like from personal knowledge:
1. The Great British Trip
Scotland – England – Wales
I think this would be such a cute trip to take and see the countryside, as well as a big city like London.
2. Bustling around the Baltics
Lithuania – Latvia – Estonia
This is a trip I am actually really considering. While I like to do one country per trip usually, this just works so well (at least in my head) that I am completely down for it.
3. Eastern Delights
Bulgaria – Romania – Hungary – Slovakia – Czech Republic
Really this is wayyy too much for me to do in one holiday but I really like the idea of it.
Germany – Denmark
I love the idea of the contrast between these two.
5. The Balkans
Serbia – Montenegro – Bosnia & Herzegovina – Croatia
I think this would be an incredibly cool trip to take, kind of along the same lines in my head as the Baltic trip I mentioned before.
6. An Elegant Escape
France – Switzerland
I actually came close to taking part in this one. I would still love to go.
7. The Trip with Tapas
Spain – Portugal
One I would genuinely love to take and can see happening. Spain and Portugal work so well together (or at least do in my head).
8. A Really Cool Idea
Belgium – Netherlands – Luxembourg
Seems like a really cool way to see Luxembourg and extend the holiday.
9. Nordic Routes
Sweden – Norway – Denmark
I wanted to put Finland in BUT IT WAS TOO MUCH.
10. THE ULTIMATE
“The Ultimate” if you have trouble reading the title.
Scotland – England – Wales – Ireland – Portugal – Spain – France – Italy – San Marino – Switzerland – Belgium – the Netherlands – Luxembourg – Germany – Austria – Slovenia – Croatia – Bosnia & Herzegovina – Serbia – Montenegro – Macedonia – Greece – Bulgaria – Romania – Hungary – Slovakia – Czech – Poland – Denmark – Sweden – Norway – Finland – Estonia – Latvia – Lithuania
There you go. 36 countries. A NICE IDEA, RIGHT?
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments if you are interested in any/would dream of taking any of these routes!
