Andy....✈️  Travelling the world (in bits) 🌎 Royal Air Force ✈️🇬🇧👨🏻‍🔧💣 A bit Tall🦒 🐶🚴🏻‍♂️👨🏻‍🍳📸 📍Lincoln, UK.

Київ, Україна or Kiev, Ukraine 🇺🇦 or Country Number 53!!! If you are thinking of visiting somewhere a little different Kiev would be for me an outright winner.

I stayed at @dreamhousehostelkiev the perfect hostel. Staff were helpful, comfy beds and nice and clean. There is also the attached bar which is perfect for meeting people and relaxing.

I flew to Kiev with @uiairlines for a very reasonable price. You can also fly with @wizzaircom and from the end of the year @ryanair.

Images:
1: St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery. One of the many ornate Orthodox churches around the city always bright in colour and gold!

2: Alice in Wonderland part of the Landscape Alley. Though is does look like she made some bad life choices 😂. 3/4: No trip to Kiev would be complete without Ukraine Flag Dumplings and Chicken Kiev! @spotykach has some good Ukrainian food and amazing cocktails at very reasonable prices! Make sure you get the shot draughts board for dessert!

5:One night along with a hostel friend we struggled to find an open bar. Asking some locals they told us to join them at an underground speakeasy where the barman makes the best Old Fashioned.....after checking multiple times I can confirm he does! 🍹

6/7: The Museum of Ukraine in the Second World War and The Motherland Monument. The museum has lots of exhibits from WW2 and a new poignant exhibition looking at the Ukrainian soldiers who have lost their lives fighting Pro-Russian Separatists and unconventional Russian Forces. You can also for an additional charge (£10) climb the Motherland Monument and stand on the shield! You need to be in pretty good condition to get up the old style ladders!
8: Kiev has the worlds deepest Metro system and the escalators are very long and also pretty fast which makes them a mission to get on!
9/10: In February 2014 the Ukrainian people rose up against a corrupt and brutal government. In the days that followed they shoot multiple protestors. To understand wha happens in more detail watch the brilliant documentary Winter On Fire on Netflix.

Чорно́биль or Chernobyl! Another bucket list tick! Amazing day exploring the ruined villages and towns within the 30km and 10km exclusion zones. Also a visit to reactor 4 and the new protective building around it keeping everyone safe! I travelled here with Solo East travel and they were amazing. From this idiot booking the wrong date to free WiFi and Chernobyl documentaries on the transport! A perfect day exploring! Just be ready for the Ukrainian roads so so bumpy! My Apple Watch registered 205 flights of stairs climbed 😂😂 #chernobyl #ukraine #ukraineairlines #explore #urbanexploration #soloeastchernobyltour #travel #instatravel #holiday #instago #travelgram #travelpics #passionpassport #Europe #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #instadaily #trip #instagood #tourist #tourism #letsgoeverywhere #adventure #wanderlust #travelpics #travelukraine #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelling

Cappadocia!! The bucket list location! Only a quick and cheap flight from Istanbul with @pegasusairlines. The views are incredible and you can explore all the valleys easily on a quad bike tour which was a lot of fun. Oh and something about balloons....🎈 I stayed @sultan_cave_suites where you get to hang out with @izmir_sultan! They also have the perfect terrace for taking pictures of the sunrise balloon flights.

Day Two in Istanbul and it’s all about the food! A trip over to the Asian side of the city and then back to the European section. Tasting all the foods turkey has to offer on an amazing free culinary walking tour. From fresh fish off the bridge to muscles and rice. So many things I wouldn’t have even considered trying without a guide. If you are in the city check it out! http://www.freeistanbultours.com 🇹🇷🌯 #istanbul #turkey #freeistanbultours #travel #foodtrip #foodtravel #streetfood #instatravel #holiday #instago #travelgram #travelpics #passionpassport #Europe #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #instadaily #trip #instagood #tourist #tourism #letsgoeverywhere #adventure #wanderlust #travelpics

Sometime you plan a trip with the best intentions. We knew today would be challenging but when you are sat in Consett Bus station buying freezer bags for you feet and marigolds to put under your gloves you have to question what you are doing. The snow was heavy and the windchill between -6 and -8. As Ranulph Fiennes once said ‘There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing’ we were not expecting so were not prepared for that. We will be back later in the year.
Now for beers in Durham. 🍺
