"So far I have travelled
just only through the western Europe; but what there's eastward?".
So I decided to buy an inter rail ticket and leaving from Milan
headed north-east. An inter rail ticket is a special ticket
that lets you travel throughout Europe by train for one month
without any limit on the number of the travels; for sure it's
the best way to do a real (and cheap) travel in the old continent.
Frankly I had no idea about how far I could have got in
one month, but I was very attracted by the small unknown countries
called the Baltic Republics, and I would have done everything
to get there.
Moved by the enthusiasm,
I left from Milan with a big rucksack and a pair of rollerblades
on our shoulders. I got on and off a bunch of trains before
getting in our first leg: Budapest.
It took more than 20 hours including a long night on the train,
right during the conflict in the Kosovo region (ex-Yugoslavia),
that, in Slovenia, led to find a dangerous travel mate quite
interested (unsuccessfully) in our money. After some days enjoying
capital rollerblading and having so cool thermal baths I
jumped on the train to head north.
