European Train Travel Just Got Better: Global Pass

I’m a big fan of taking trains, especially in Europe.

I dread the chaos of major airports like London’s Heathrow and Charles De Gaulle in Paris, and the destination opportunities on the European Rail network just got bigger.

When I was in college, a Eurail pass was a good and affordable option. And you could take one for about two weeks. But the routes were limited.

Now, Eurail offers something called a Global Pass, which offers rail travel in 31 countries, and that now includes Lithuania, Macedonia and Great Britain.

For those of you on a budget, plan wisely and you’ll save a number of nights you’d otherwise be spending in hotels.
