I know that most travelers use a common idea of holidays. It is something more like home – airport – taxi – hotel – excursion (depends) – taxi – airport – home. There is nothing bad in such routine, it is stable and predictable. What else do you need while traveling with your family? I am talking about the new experience of facing true life without cardboard decoration. What do I mean? You can try a new type of holiday which is fun (definitely) experimental (can be) and challenging (no doubt). You can travel to Ukraine.

But in Ukraine there are something that can take your breath away – it’s rivers and seas, mountains and valleys.
