      Travel Condition in Odessa, Ukrain

      Odessa Jul 3, 2014 at 11:33 PM

      any Odessa locals would be kind enough to inform what conditions are like for travel in Odessa at the moment? I have arranged a trip there from some time ago, & I am due to arrive there August 5th for one week stay.

Some people say Russian military is spreading in southern Ukraine and nearing Odessa, and things getting close to war. Other people say that in Odessa life continues as normal and is ok to travel.
      I would be appreciate describe about condition in this time. Thanks

    • travelling out of Luhansk

      Luhansk Jul 1, 2014 at 6:08 PM

      With all the fighting going on, one has to wonder if this is such a good idea. However. My fiancee wishes to leave Luhansk asap because she is afraid. Personally, i think she takes a bigger risk leaving. But, i do not know how difficult it is to get life's necessities at the moment either. So the magic question is. How dangerous is it to leave the city right now? My preference would be for her to go to Kiev. However, she has family in Russia and this may be safer for her to go there for now. There must be a way. But I will not endanger her any more then I must. Thanks.

      Bus / Train from L'viv to Krakow May 2012

      Lviv May 4, 2012 at 11:46 PM

      Hi everyone!

      I'm planning a trip for next week and I'm going from L'viv to Krakow, I've been looking for information and I've seen that there's a night train just working on par days, I will be there on 17 so I think I won't be able to get that train. I've also seen that there's a bus working daily at 22:00 from Lviv to Krakow arriving around 6am but i don't know if it is working now because that information was old. Anybody can tell me something about it? I would like to go to Krakow by night so I can stay there for the day. Also, I've seen that Bus Main Station is far from the Lviv center, anybody knows how to get there?

      Thank you!!

I'm not looking for the typical high priced English speaking guide to take me around town and show me mounuments/castles/etc. I'm looking for someone to help with a photography project - an outgoing person that understands enough English to communicate with me, knows their way around the countryside/small villages up to 100km out of town, able to strike up conversations with locals, knows their way around Soviet housing complexes, has street smarts. This might be fun for a student studying English or photojournalism or a recent grad.
