Old Country Surprises

Thank you for taking the time to meet Mike and his travelling companions. I hope you are excited as Mike is to see Ukraine. While he looks forward to find his great grandfather’s birthplace he have the pleasure of looking forward to reading about some of the historical sights he sees. You will also met some very interesting Ukrainian people and enjoy Mike experiencing different elements of the culture.

From the moment Mike and his friends arrive in Lviv, they become enchanted with the  people and the surroundings. Exotic new foods, architectural wonders, and the witnessing the Ukrainian lifestyle wrap them in the past. Mike sees that the Ukrainian people haven’t forgotten their past, but they are haunted by the Russian influence. It is one more narrative he must add when he shares his holiday experience with his grandfather.

Join Mike as he experiences the beauty of Ukraine and witnesses different elements of their creative life.
