Hi there,

I don't think I have ever seen someone post a similar itinerary here on the forum.

Looking at the route you will travel, I do think it would be more economic to buy normal tickets than buy a pass. Mostly because train travel is limited and you will be using other kinds of transport like the airplane and bus.

Hope this helps,
