I'm confused by all the online information. I am thinking of buying a Euro Rail Pass. It makes sense to buy one for long distances and overnight travel, but I want to travel short distances, stay in a town, catch the train the next day and go to another, so I can see the countryside. Would you recommend a rail pass, or should I just buy the tickets as I go along, as I decide what to see and how long to stay. And also, I know I can order one through the mail, but can I also buy one once I get to Europe?

The Euro pass always confused me, and it seems overly-expensive. I've always just chosen to get train/bus tickets as I go, which is often very affordable, or book flights on affordable European airlines for longer distances, which is often more affordable as well as saving time.

Thank you. I was coming to that conclusion myself. It's impossible this far in advance to know how many days I might travel by train, so it was difficult to purchase a ticket.
