late saturday we came home from our two week bicycle trip from kiev to warsaw. it was a both hard, exciting and eye opening experience to travel by bike through parts of ukraine and later poland.
we took a train out of kiev as the heat there was extreme (the photo of NE in our kiev hostel room says it all).
ukraine was a challenging country to travel in by bike as there were few food stores, no one who spoke english, only signs in cyrillic and poor roads. this being said ukraine was also full of beautiful nature and we met some very sweet and friendly people there: a couple who led us stay for the night in their house and a woman who served us the best home cooked meal when we needed it the most.
more photos to come tomorrow!
