Well, I see that my last post was made on August 28 ... wow, does time fly when you travel to Ukraine!
Yes, I'm just back from the trip of a lifetime. My mom decided to take a trip to Ukraine and invited her brood along. Three of her daughters (including me) and two grand-daughters were able to make the trip, so on Sept. 8 we left Winnipeg together, and returned on the 24th. I returned home to Vancouver on the 28th.
We went to Kyiv, Yalta, Lviv and Vienna. It was quite incredible. I was the only one who'd ever been to Ukraine, but that was in 1984, so it was almost like the first time for me. Quite a few surprises all around... some pleasant, some not. But we all agree, it was a fabulous experience all around.
I have quite a lot of pics, notes and memories to sift through ... and savour! So please indulge me as I share my recollections of this awesome trip over the next little while.
