Come on this trip to see a less well-travelled corner of Europe: for the variety of historic cities in Lviv and Odessa, a glimpse of the Carpathians, a good feel for many places in Moldova, and the alternative reality of Transnistria. I was trying to pay attention to the history; a lot has happened here over the centuries. I'd recommend an extra couple of days at the start if you can spare it, to see more of Kiev and a for a day out at Chernobyl.
