If you’ve ever witnessed a bad breakup, you’ll know that the weeks following a split can be a tad self-indulgent and always require the assistance of Ben & Jerry.

But as weeks turn into months, something incredible happens.

New dresses are bought, hair gets did, and slowly but surely the breakupee begins to show the breakuper exactly what they’re missing.

Well, that’s kind of the situation with Britain and Europe right now, as in the aftermath of Brexit the EU could be about to offer its young citizens one very big advantage over their British counterparts.

MEP’s have proposed giving EU citizens free InterRail tickets for their 18th birthdays in a bid to reignite enthusiasm for Europe.

But since Britain has voted itself out of the union, its teenagers will not be receiving the coveted passes which allow people under 26 to travel across the continent by train.

While it’s still very early days, the FreeInterrail campaign has been greeted with much enthusiasm by European parliament members and, of course, by the teens who could benefit from the initiative.

Did we mention we love Europe?

Trains are the perfect way to truly see a country up close and these reasons will show you exactly why we absolutely love travelling this way.

You’re going to want to ditch the plane ticket in favour of a train ticket after reading this.

  1. You don’t need to turn up four hours before it leaves the station – airports, we’re looking at you.
  2. You can bring bottles that contain more than 100mls (oh the joy!) and they don’t need to be squashed into a tiny plastic bag.
  3. You can use your phone so you’re free to Facebook stalk as you please.
  4. If you’re sitting beside a particularly annoying person you can simply up and move – yay!
  5. You can bring your own food and drink.
  6. When you look out of the window you will see more than clouds and a 35,000ft drop….
  7. The train journey can become a holiday in itself.

Inter-railing anyone?
