Subject: Eurail/Europasses vs. Country Passes or Point-to-Point
Hi Barbara, You will have to do some research and here are a few sites to get you started. As Eurail and Europasses for adults are not cheap, they usually don't pay off unless the traveler is doing lots of heavy-duty long distance travel. You may find it less expensive to buy point-to-point tickets for your week-end travel. Traveling second class is fine; it's unnecessary to pay extra to go in first. Promotional offers:

This should keep you busy on a quiet Sunday. :-)
