    OUR INTERRAIL TRIP ITINERARY: 15 COUNTRIES IN 50 DAYS!

    Last autumn we had the chance to make one of our longest standing dreams come true: traveling Europe by train with an epic Interrail trip!Since we were teenagers, we’ve been hearing about this opportunity to travel around Europe on a budget with a unique train ticket.For one reason or another, we always postponed this adventure. First we had to study, then we had to work, then we traveled for 2 years in Asia. Lastly we spent 1 year in Australia. It’s interesting how some people end up traveling to the other side of the world before visiting properly their own country and continent first!Anyway, we finally made it, better late…

    HOW DOES INTERRAIL WORK? A FULL GUIDE TO TRAIN TRAVEL IN EUROPE

    So, how does Interrail work? This is definitely the question we got asked the most by our readers during the last 2 months of travelling through Europe by train thanks to our Interrail Pass.And to be honest we asked ourselves the same question when we sat down and had to start planning our own trip.The Interrail program was launched in 1972. Thought for young Europeans under 21 years of age, it consists in a unique railway ticket that allows unlimited travel through the European Union countries participating in the scheme.It has then become available to everyone, youths and adults.Since 2007 the Interrail Global Pass was introduced, including 31 participating nations…

    HOW TO GET TO LAKE SORAPIS, DOLOMITES

    It’s been over a month we are in Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the Dolomites in Northern Italy, and we had the chance to do few excursions to some of the most beautiful places around, as the Three Peaks of Lavaredo.

    A WEEKEND IN BERLIN – 3DAY ITINERARY

    During our last trip around the world, as usual we opted to plan a few stopovers in order to visit as many places as possible on our way back. So, after flying from Melbourne, Australia and visiting Singapore for a couple of days, we then took a direct flight to Berlin in Germany, where we spent 3 very interesting and intense days. BERLIN Berlin is a city rich in history, one of the most tormented by wars in 20th century, always disputed and a place of divisions. Still today, the signs of recent past are quite obvious. Above all the border marked by infamous Wall of Berlin which used to…

  • BEFORE SRI LANKA, LONDON+DUBAI IN 48 HRS

    Our journey starts today, Saturday 17th September 2016, at Torino Caselle Airport. We land at London Stansted at around midday. LONDON After a few transports, we get to our hostel by 2pm, in a nice area close to Hyde Park. We got used to stay in guesthouses and hostels around Southeast Asia back in early 2016, which were usually very cheap but decent at the same time. Well, we are very disappointed with this hostel in London: one can accept the 24$ a bed cause it’s London right? But you’d expect at least cleanliness and a decorous room. Ours was a 9-bed dorm, 3×3 bunk beds, not more than 15…
