Travel tips and ideas

Sorry, I haven't had time to write this page. If you have any particular questions about travelling to Russia or Ukraine, please just send me an email (Brian: and I can pass it on to Yulia or another friend who are a wealth of travel information.

Regarding Ukraine, it's really a great place to come visit. You get a 90 day visa on arrival, and it's super quick and simple. You don't even have to fill out an arrival card. Cheap flights are available with Wizz Air from many destinations.

Finding a place to stay is also easy. There are many good quality hostels now that you can easily book online, and Couchsurfing is a great option as there are many people willing to host.

Travelling around the country is quite cheap and comfortable on the trains, and it's also a great place for cycling.

Lots more, with photos, coming soon.
