ah, finally stopped getting trains for long enough to get a shower and hopefully later some sleep. I travelled to and stopped in 8 cities/towns and 4 countries in less than 48 hours. Impressive I would say. Here's a roundup of the journey.
I decided to go from Prague to Salzberg, but when I got there it was fairly late and the place was just so seedy and unpleasant that I just got the first train in the morning to Zurich, which didn't have any hostel rooms going spare and so(as I didn't feel like staying in the stables) I left for Bern to change over for Paris, only to find out I should have gone to Basel, so after changing to another train and getting to Basel I realised I had missed the last train to Paris and decided to get the overnight train to Marseille and to go to Paris the next day, so on the way (in the morning now) I see a lovely beach town outside my window, I think "hmmm that looks nice" and get off at the next stop, the town is Cannes and there's a festival on all weekend (not the film festival though that would have been nice) so there's no hotel rooms, so I take a train from there to nearby Nice and find the first hotel I lay eyes on and fall in love with the shower.
