Travel Blog for Upcoming Eastern Europe Trip

Jump to last reply

Two of us are going to Belarus and Ukraine on our own, starting May 22,for a little over two weeks, travelling independently for the most part.

We are experimenting with a travel blog. So far, we only have two posts, but are hoping to add as we travel around.

The location is:

Feel free to visit, and add any comments.

The main purpose is to visit the four small towns that my grandparents came from. However, the majority of our time will be in larger cities.

Below is our itinerary.

Fly into Minsk (from Wash. DC) - 3 days in Minsk

Bus (5 hours) to the small Belarus town of Turov, Belarussia (home of grandparent #1) - stay for a day

Hire car/driver for next day to visit David Gorodok (home of grandparent #2)

Overnight train to Lviv, Ukraine, stay in Lviv for 4 days. One of the days will hire car/driver to visit hometowns of grandparent #3 in Cherniv and grandparent #4 in Zolochiv.

Overnight train to Kiev, stay in Kiev for 5 full days.

Next day, fly back to DC.

In the small towns, we don't really have specific places to visit, but will get a feel for the towns. In Minsk and Liviv, we plan to vist the archives to see if we can find any information on family history.
