You know that item on your wish-list that you treat like, “I’ll do that someday”? Well, that’s how we’ve been treating a trip to the USA. Eventually, we’ve just applied the ‘screw it, let’s do it’ technique and bought flight tickets to New York for 2016 Christmas period. Strangely enough, this short trip to New York did not evoke any extraordinary feelings in me which I usually get when I travel to new places. At first, I was alarmed. Why wasn’t I getting more excited about seeing New York for the first time? And then is slowly came to me…that is because I felt like I had been to New York already! Seriously, haven’t I?

Lviv is simply unrecognizable. I have been there multiple times before but this time I simply couldn’t believe I was still in Ukrainian Lviv, a city that 8 years ago although looking pretty, seemed to collapse any minute.

With the talks and jokes about people wanting to flee from America after the election, I think I’ve seen several articles popping up about the best places to move to. Of course, Denmark always ends up to be one of them. And there is a reason for that. In 2016, for example, Denmark topped the list of countries with the best quality of life.

After the annexation of Crimea, Odessa suddenly and unexpectedly even to itself became the first go-to place for Ukrainians on vacation. It has a perfect location south of the country on a fine coastal line of the Black sea.

London’s food spots provided in this article have lots of choices for any kind of traveler. [click to continue…]
I love coming to Ukraine. This is a place that makes me warm from the inside out. This is the place where you can feel yourself like a model! Even before you get the chance to leave the airport, young guards in military uniform are winking at you at the gates. The spectrum of emotions from encounters with people in Kyiv city is so wide that one minute you can be hating it with your guts and right the next second you’ll be thinking that this is the best place in the world. And that’s why I am still battling the love-hate relationship with Kyiv city. [click to continue…]

There are a lot of articles out there about how to travel with children. But what about us, grown up children who go on a trip with our even more mature parents? You think that is easy? I think that travel with parents also needs it’s own survival guide.
In this global world where everyone lives anywhere but home, one of the main possibilities to connect with your parents who live far away is to travel with them. In my case, I see my parents at least twice a year, with me traveling back to Ukraine and them visiting me in Denmark. [click to continue…]
