A 2 week interrail itinerary for Eastern Europe

Way back at the beginning of August last year I was seriously craving getting away, having just finished university and starting my temp job (who by the way were super nice to let me have 2 weeks off after only being there for 2 weeks!) and luckily I had another friend with a plan. This was my first trip where I wasn't in complete control which I've got to say was quite difficult for the control freak within me. I've also got to admit I had no interest with going/no clue these places existed. As I'm never one to turn down a holiday I took the risk and although not as relaxing as I wanted it was still so much fun and so cool to explore some new places.
I'm calling this an inter-rail trip but we actually ended up getting more buses than trains due to the access round the countries we went to so we didn't buy a pass like the one I got for Western Europe.

New Zealand Travel Diaries #9 | My Top 9

To round off my New Zealand travel posts (see them all here!) and as it's my 9th post, I thought I'd put together my top 9 because I like to be unconventional. There is SO much more of New Zealand that I didn't see and the Kiwi Experience pass I was on only scratched the surface. I would whole-heartedly recommend Kiwi Experience if you're heading to New Zealand for the first time and want to see the highlights. It was a great base for my first trip to New Zealand and I can't wait to get back there one day and see more - next on the agenda is to hire a camper van to explore it, maybe with a working holiday visa!

New Zealand Travel Diaries #7 | Queenstown & Milford Sound

Onto, the next part of our trip. Are you bored of it yet? It's hard to say which bit of my New Zealand was my favourite as it was all bloody amazing but this next week was pretty high up the list.
Leaving Wanaka, we stopped at the Puzzling World. Don't worry if you don't want to pay to go inside as they have loads of free puzzles in the cafe/shop area which will confuse the heck out of you. Before reaching Queenstown, the adrenaline capital of New Zealand we stopped at the infamous first commercial bungy, the Kawarua Bridge where you can watch people do it or take part yourself.
