Hello, my Darlings!I’m back! April was literally one of the craziest months I ever had. I had two trips one to Sweden for work and other to Ukraine …and between both of those I got sick, had a very high fever ….it was crazy. That’s why I didn’t post anything, but now my vacation is starting so I’m finally getting back to blogging. I missed you so much!!!

 

So how did we decide to go? Because my mom’s sister called and invited us to come and celebrate Orthodox Easter (It’s the same Easter but celebrated a week later).

I had a high fever at that time, so we waited for the last minute to decide are we going or no…and we decided to go.

I haven’t been to Ukraine for more than 7 years, I was excited to travel by bus and experience everything l remember doing every summer in my childhood.

The trip was hard,20 hours on a bus is a lot, but the view was amazing. We did travel thru Lithuania and Poland and nature was spectacular. I enjoyed that a lot. So I was in Ukraine(Lutsk) for a week, sadly we didn’t do a lot of sightseeing because we all were so tired from Sweden.

we did go for burgers, just chilled and talked. It was nice to just spend time with family that I haven’t seen for years. I did a little shopping so stay tuned for a haul post. I had an amazing time, and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to go.
