Travel Bug in Ukraine

Life and Travels in Ukraine


Map downloaded from the Ukrainian Map Server.

Originally this Web site was called “One Year In Ukraine”, as I came to Ukraine to teach English for one year with the support of the U.S. Department of State English Language Fellow Program.   I extended my stay for a second year.  Below are vignettes and travelogues from my time here, as well as links to other Web sites with information on traveling in Ukraine.  The experiences from September 2001-June 2002 are based on my time in at Kharkiv State Pedagogical University in Kharkiv, Ukraine.  My experiences from September 2002 to June 2003 are from my time at Technological University of Podillya in Khmelnytsky, Ukraine.
