Continuing along with my theme of wanting to visit unusual places that no (or not many) people I know have visited while experiencing a different culture and learning something at the same time I have booked my trip for 2013. In 6 weeks I will be flying to Ukraine to spend a few days in Kiev and a couple of days visiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
It’s a fairly short and, compared to my recent trips, nearby trip but due to issues with my travel budget this year I thought I would check Chernobyl off of my bucket list and save places like Kyrgyzstan for next year.
In total I’ll be spending 4 days in and around Kiev plus 2 days and 1 night inside the exclusion zone seeing things like the buildings of the power plant and the abandoned towns nearby.
Should be fun! Expect lots of photos of the trip, and The Travels of Charlie, when I get back.
