InterRail 2010 – Part 18: Going Home

After almost a month of traveling, I was starting to get homesick.

It was starting to be more tiring than fun to move location almost every day, so Venice would be the last new place I visited on my journey.


When I left Venice, I found the quickest route towards Norway by train.

I did not take in to any more hotels, instead opting for sleeping on the train the one night that passed during my trip home.

I ended up in Hamburg again, but instead of going via Sweden by train like on my journey down, I figured it would be quicker to take a boat from northern Denmark.

I booked a ticket on a ferry from the port of Frederikshavn, and as soon as I arrived in Oslo, I hopped on a plane back to Bergen.

These two modes of transportation were the only ones I used during the entire trip that were not covered by my InterRail ticket in some capacity, but I was so ready to get home that I didn’t care.


I really enjoyed my journey, getting to see places I had only ever seen in pictures before, but a month with very minimal human interaction was just slightly too long for me.

Some people would have no trouble finding random new friends on the road, but I was too shy to start up conversations with other travelers on the trains.

If I ever were to try anything like this again, I think I would have to bring someone with me.


I hope you have enjoyed my trip down memory lane 🙂

Happy travels!

  1. I was in Norway in 2013. Is it still trie that when you get in a coach with orange door, it means you need to buy a ticket; with a black door you already have one? Or vice versa.
