With only 24 hours, Kiev was a push….but I think you’ll agree I did a pretty good job! Please enjoy this cultural and culinary post and video.
My first visit to Ukraine was part of the Ultimate Train Challenge. Unlike many of my other train challenge destinations though, I spent a bit of time in Ukraine - starting in Lviv, hiking in the Carpathian Mountains (an incredible experience), then finishing off in Kiev before riding on to Moscow.
I returned a couple of years later as part of my 8-country 3-week sponsored flurry through Europe.
Ukraine is a paradoxical roller coaster that takes me on a three-day ride I won’t soon forget. Come along!
