While people in the UK are living in fear of a rare outbreak of thundersnow which will surely bring the country to a standstill for a few days hours, instead they should come to Ukraine and experience a real winter with minus 20° temperatures and deep snow which will last for a month at least. […]

Odessa, Ukraine

As many of you will know from my previous posts, I like to travel to Ukraine in any season of the year from the freezing winters to the scorching summers. For 6 weeks of this past Summer, I rented an apartment in Kiev again to escape the unpredictableness of the British summer. For a week […]

View from Radisson Blu, Bukovel

When you think of hotels in Ukraine, you’d be forgiven for imagining them all to be in soviet styling with dated décor and poor service. Whilst it’s true that in almost every city in Ukraine there is at least one such a hotel, there are also some real gems to discover such as Radomysl Castle […]

Twas the night before Christmas New Year, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. As I’m sat here in this cosy apartment for New Year in Copenhagen, I’ve been thinking about the past year and all the amazing places I’ve been, seen and things I’ve done. I’ve spent […]

All that was left was the east which is currently under a territorial dispute and Chernobyl, the site of the nuclear disaster in 1986.
