Have you ever thought of jetting off to Europe for a few weeks or a couple of months and traveling around at your own will? There is a general romantic thought among Americans about doing this. There is something very appealing in being able to travel through five countries in a matter of days. You come across different cultures, foods, lifestyles and histories.

The best way to make this happen is to purchase a train pass. You might want to buy a Eurail ticket. There are 17 countries on the Eurail network. You don't, however, have to get a package that includes all of them. There are all kinds of different packages and passes to choose from. If you don't find one that fits the trip you want to take, you can design your own.

There is a pass for the Balkan countries. This includes travel to Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Turkey. If that's not for you this time around, try the Scanrail. This will take you to the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. If you want to spend more time in fewer places, get a pass that allows travel throughout Austria and Switzerland, France and Spain or France and Italy.

European Train Timetables for Easy Travel

You will be able to find timetables all over the place. Many trains run through the day and night, so you shouldn't have too much of a problem departing when you want. In addition, if you miss a train, you shouldn't have to wait too long for another one to come along.
