It's actually a Eurail pass, and using it to go to a resort can be a waste, unless you use it the same day as a travel day, if that makes sense.
i didnt ask you to tell me what to call, or how to use my rail pass, but thanks.....& its continuous 21 day, so it wont be a waste, ill be traveling by trains....so my question again,
so what moutnain has the best parks??? and which ones can i use a rail pass to get to? and how cold is it going to be there in november(i dont plan on bringing all my outerwear)? i plan on stoppin on my way to italy, and want to shred some alps. i have a week before i leave, someone please make this simple.
No need to take offense. And although you have a 21 day pass, using a "day" for a one hour train trip (or less) from some town to a resort IS a waste when you can get just pay for a separate trip for cheap, unless you're going to have some extra days left on your pass. But yeah, it's your pass.
Anyway, you having that 21 day pass got me interested to see if you started a topic for info regarding cities, which I saw.
In Amsterdam, you'll want to hang out in "Leidseplein". That's where there's some cool kick it spots for night time, like Melkweg (Millky Way) and Paradiso. Best pizza I've ever had was some pizza shop in Leidseplein, and for only five euros. I know that doesn't help but there are some good spots for not that much. I think the best coffeeshop is De Rokery; vibe, music, decor, and people are all chill. When I went, there were two of them (went to both), but you want to hit up the one in Leideseplein; it's a lot better than the other one.
Things to do: the Heineken Experience (the heineken there is so tasty; amazing how it's so good there and so shitty here in the states), Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank house, Sex Museum, Hemp Museum, Riksmuseum, Vondelpark, canal ride (which I didn't do but wish I did). I'm sure you'll be walking through the red light district but avoid the sex shows, unless you want to, just to experience it. I thought it was a waste of 30 euros.
Never leave your luggage out of sight, not even for a minute and expect to wait a while for food. They're not all about the hurry hurry hurry mindset when it comes to dining like we are here in the states; just chill on some brews.
In Switzerland, Zurich is supposed to be the best city for nightlife; that's coming from my Swiss friends (and friends here that have been to that country). Have also heard good things about Interlaken (saw someone mention that on your topic), St. Gallen, and Bern. Heard that Basel, Luzern, and Geneva are cool, but not must-see types of places.
Also, they say that Krakow (in Poland) is the new Prague, so you may want to check out that city. I'm still deciding if I'm going to or not.
You're going have such a great experience. Everyone should travel to another continent; preferably before the age of 30.
