This time last year I was half way through my second interrail adventure, around Eastern Europe. I left the UK with only €500 in cash to last me the first 3 weeks – hostels and food included. Come pay day I had an extra few hundred to spend for the last leg of the trip, but also had to relocate to Madrid straight after… I must say I was rather nervous – I hadn’t done a trip that long since Peru in 2013, and my budget back then was over 3 times the amount! With interrail passes and flights included, the whole trip came to around £1200 each. Here’s a rundown of the measures we took to keep costs down, and the sacrifices that were made along the way.
Having spent years prior stressed with studies and extra curricular activities for my CV, after I graduated and moved to Madrid in 2014 I decided 2015 would be all about me. Here’s a little something about what I got up to, and my plans for the year ahead.
