After the demise of the Pirate ship, our Danube adventure was abandoned and I decided to hitchhike instead. From Budapest, I headed first to Poland and then into Ukraine. The only bad thing that happened (apart from being shouted at by elderly Ukrainians), was my mountain cabin catching on fire.
I love Ukraine. In what other country can you go for a walk in a forest and stumble upon an abandoned ski jump and then try to hitchhike a tractor just a day later?
Using pictures to explain all, this is what I found.
