“Your Story on the Rails” Bloggers Arrive in Europe: Charlie’s Train Tips from Austria

 

Summer has arrived and our “Your Story on the Rails” bloggers have dusted off their suitcases: Some are adding finishing touches to packing and planning, while others have already landed overseas—Eurail Global Passes in hand! They will be traveling by train in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and beyond!

Charlie, a University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign student and German speaker, has been studying in Vienna, Austria, with the Austria-Illinois Exchange Program. In this first video, he shares with us some pro-tips to make your next visit to a European train station as easy as possible.

Curious to hear how it all works from somebody who’s been there? Charlie’s got it covered!
