was just wondering if anyone can help me. I am going on my first propper backpacking trip, for about 6 weeks starting next friday. I want to be as flexible as possible and so havent bought an interrail pass yet. I will be starting off with a bit of travel around eastern europe (which it seems is pretty cheap and so wont be worth buying a pass for). But then I plan to do some of the bigger Central and Western cities like Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona (though i don't know exactly when, I want to be flexible). It seems that for the last part of my trip it will be worth getting a pass.
Basicly i have 2 questions:
1) do all stations sell interrail passes? (if not roughly what percentage do, is it only big cities etc?)
2) if i can get one at a train station how easy is it to do so and what is the procedure? (long queues? how do you prove the 6 months residence? will I just need a passport?)
Ok maybe I lied, it is more than 2 questions....
Anyway thanks in advance for any help!
