Practical information about travelling in Europe
In addition to allowing you to enjoy the scenery, trains are a good option for travelling around Europe, especially for short-distance destinations. If you are going to a more distant place you can also take a night train, combining sleeping and travelling in one.
Travelling by bus shares some of the advantages of the train, such as the chance to enjoy the view and to travel during the night. Even though it can be slower at some points, it can be your only option to reach a remote location.
Whether you have a car or not, you can still choose the car as your transport method around Europe. Carpooling is flexible and you don't event have to know how to drive. As a driver or a passenger, you share the expenses and meet new people along the way.
It may have never crossed your mind, but an overnight ferry can sometimes be your best option, especially if you are around the Mediterranean or Scandinavia.
