In Austria it is tradition to go on vacation with your classmates after graduating from high school. While most go to Croatia, Spain or Turkey to lie in the sun and drink for an entire week, four of my friends and I decided we were not interested in any of that. We chose to buy an Interrail One Country Pass for the UK instead and to spend two weeks visiting different towns all over the country.
We saw 9 different cities in a matter of two weeks. In retrospect I am going to say those were too many for such a short time. But travelling by train was the perfect way to relax for a few hours whenever we went to discover a new city.
I will tell you about our time in 5 of those cities in respective posts. We had down-days while we were in the other four, which is why we mostly relaxed there.
