Next year I am hoping to interrail around Northern Europe before going to university. As I am claustrophobic my only option is train/ferry travel which I am happy with. However I have several questions regarding routes and logistics...
(Bearing in mind flying is not an option) my current route stands as:
1st day of travel: [my local station] - London (Kings Cross - St Pancreas International) - *Eurostar* - Belgium (Brussels Midi) - Germany (Köln) - Berlin
2nd day of travel: - Hamburg - Denmark (københavn)
I would then like to travel to Oslo, Narvik, Stockholm, Åland, and Helsinki but am not sure of the best route?
(I will then have to return home via train)
I will have a minimum budget of £2000 with the addition of savings accumulated over the next year. I will be travelling for a maximum of 1 month.
As a solo female (traveling for the first time at 18) I\'d like to know whether it is safe for me to sleep on trains/ferries, to camp (on campsites), and to use hostels?
