EuroHobo: (And I’m a Hobo!) A How-to zine about tramping, freight train hopping, and free riding passenger trains in Europe

by Hobo Lee Author

Lee's guide to traveling through pre-EU Europe on about $200/month by hopping trains, hitchhiking, and crashing with newfound friends is comprehensive, helpful, and evocative. He stashed his money in his boots and set out on two different tours, riding 23 freight trains in six countries and five times that many passenger trains in nine countries (even paying for a few of those). Read about crossing the Alps by freight train, the differences between US and European trains, cars, and workers. Advice on staying safe, navigating unfamiliar equipment and attitudes, maps, placards, and a ton of travel tips plus a glossary of railroad terms you need to know in Spanish, French, German, and Italian.
