Train Travel for 3 Month See All Trip?

Jump to last reply

I am a 24 year old American who is looking to go back to Europe to see all that i can, literally try and see almost every country and really try to see a few cities in each. i plan on traveling Mid to late September till basically i outstay my welcome or get low on funds. I have a good amount of money saved up to finance me trip (about $20k), and plan on trying to couch surf as much as i can to keep expenses to a minimum. I have looked into the rail system and have been looking at the continuous 3 month rail pass to do my travels, but have some concerns after doing research and reading other forum on here. I understand that there are reservation fees (which i hear during the time im going i may not have to be too concerned with) but I'm just wondering for the type of trip im trying to do will it be worth gettting?

As well as, since im under 26 i can choose either pass (1st or 2nd class), but dont know how much they really differ. i am a tall individual (6'3) and have big legs and feet so comfort is somewhat of concern, but not technically a deal breaker. So any info on what they actually offer would be great??? Wifi? Plug-ins for devices? Food?
