{ukraine} hop across the border

January 15, 2017

Ustryki Dolne, Poland is very close to the Ukrainian border. At first I was told that those with U.S. passports can’t enter Ukraine without a visa. It turns out that changed a few years ago and I could cross the border into Ukraine for a short visit with no problem. Of course, this meant figuring out a way to cross the border. Luckily, I cousin of a friend works for borer control so not only did we get to cross into Ukraine for an interesting little visit, we also didn’t have to wait in as many long lines. I feel like many Poles cross the border into Ukraine for the shopping and to buy cheaper knock offs. It’s like people from the U.S. who go to China or Mexico for the knock offs!

If we had planned with little Ukraine adventure in advance we probably could have make it to the more interesting city of Kiev, but alas, I still got to say I’ve spent time in the Ukraine!
