Trip Report Istanbul, Crimea/Dneiper Black Sea Cruise, Kiev and Moscow - a trip report in pictures

Jump to last reply

We made this 21 day trip starting in late May. We had been to Istanbul on three previous trips and enjoy it, but everything else was totally new to us. We found It interesting but frankly not as beautiful as the pictures my DH took during it. He is a master at filtering out the crumbling stuff that sometimes surrounds the basic beauty that exists in so many places. The economic conditions in the Ukraine challenged his skill but he rose to the occasion. Rather than spend a lot of time typing a long trip report, I'll let his pictures (with my captions and a few of my own pix) tell the story.

This first album is of Istanbul. We flew there on Delta and stayed two nights before taking a Turkish Air flight to Odessa (Delta doesn't fly to Odessa) to board a Viking ship for a cruise on the Black Sea and up the Dneiper River. Thank goodness we were there just ahead of the riots that later broke out in Istanbul.

This next album covers our time on the Viking Cruise called Footsteps of the Cossacks which went from Odessa to Kiev in the Ukraine with stops in the Crimean peninsula on the Black Sea and ended in Kiev.

The next album is just of Kiev, the city where the cruise ended and our independent travel began.

And this final album is of our 5 days in Moscow to which we flew on Aeroflot from Kiev.
