    hi, my wife and i are exploring South America with the strong possibility of retiring there. So far, Uruguay ticks all of our “boxes” but there are always more questions. Last year we spent 3.5 months in Ecuador which we really loved, but there were a few turnoffs, too. The worst wAS THE SITUATION WITH NOT BEING ALLOWED TO FLUSH TOILET PAPER- IS THAT THE CASE IN uRUGUAY AS WELL?

      nope, Uruguay is fine! You definitely should go there to see it by yourself but I’m sure you’ll love it!

    I read your review on Iran and just want to say thank you, you said a lot of nice things about my country, I love travelling too and I’m going to take my first solo trip to Baku within 2 months. So far I have visited a few countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Armenia, Cyprus, Turkey, Armenia, UAE and Planned to Visit Azerbaijan, Georgia, Canada and India this year. I will check your website to read your reviews and advises regularly from now on.
    Wish to see you someday,
    My regards

    I will be living in Ukraine from January to April 2017 and I’m terrified of the cold weather. Have you been in the winter and how cold is it? Is it bearable? Thank you for your post on the safety of Ukraine. My family is so terrified telling me I will be attacked and bombed, but your post even gave ME a lot of comfort. Thanks for sharing your travels!

      You will be fine in Ukraine, really! Where will you live? I once visited Lviv in March and it was -20C but the most stunning winter I’ve seen! So yes, it can get cold there :)

    Hi kami
    Thinking of adding mslta to my scicily trip. I’m fearful that I may feel about it like you did. One gets a bit blase’ when one travels do much. I’s it worth seeing or give it a miss. After scicily we will head on over to Croatia fir a few weeks.

    • kami
      11:28 14/09/2016

      I think it’s worth seeing, after all it’s a beautiful place. I haven’t been to Sicily yet but I feel Malta is different (and definitely different than Croatia). As you will be so nearby I will definitely give it a try!

    Hi Kami, have you visited “Tunnel of Love” near Kiev. I do not see the pictures on your blog. Do you know how far it is from Kiev.
    Thank You

      Unfortunately I haven’t. But looking at the map it’s rather far away from Kiev. The town is called Klevan. Good luck!

    I am thinking of visiting Odessa and Mykolayiv in the Ukraine and do not speak any of their language. My bigger concern is safety. Is is safe to go there alone, and will I experience much difficulty in communication since I do not speak the language.

    I suggest you visit Thailand. We have visited Thailand about seven times and we are likely to revisit it. The country is very exotic and friendly. I don’t know if they offer vegetarian food, but vegetables are inseparable part of their dishes, and there are many international restaurants, at least in Bangkok.

      09:59 08/12/2016

      Thank you for your suggestion! Thailand is definitely on my list! Thanks!

    Of the places that have not visited and would eagerly like to visit, I suggest these to you:
    1. Iceland, for its odd nature, especially odd daylight and dark winters as well as its Viking culture
    2. Russia, for Saint Petersburg, Russian art, nature and food
    3. Afghanistan, very much like Iran regarding culture and people’s behavior, Herat and Kabul are the most peaceful cities.
    4. India, I prefer to see Goa Mumbai and Delhi, as well as wildlife.
    5. Viet Nam, because what I saw on its nature and Ho Chi Minh City on TV, and the snakes they eat!
    6. Cambodia, for Angkor Wat
    7. Taiwan, to see a democratic version of China!
    8. Mongolia, for its nomadic lifestyle which is extended into cities
    9. South Korea, for its culture, cleanness and advancement
    10. Japan, same as above, with special focus on Tokyo and Kyoto
    11. The Philippines, for its exotic culture
    12. USA, for NYC and LA
    13. Mexico, Peru and Ecuador for culture, nature and dishes
    14. Zambia ans Zimbabwe, for wild life
    15. Greece and Egypt, for archeological sites
    16. Spain, for art, culture and climate
    17. French Polynesia, for its nature

    I’ve recently discovered your blog and been keeping an eye on your posts ?

    I’ve been preparing to start my own youtube channel (almost there), I aim ”To inspire, inform and humour on the subject of travel and stuff the subject”. One of the things I’m hoping to do is to interview some of my favourite travel bloggers. I would love to interview you if you are ever in the UK or if we’re both in the same country?

    Also I’m a big fan of street art as well, check out my ig sometime :)

    Regarding your interests, I think you may find Königsberg (now a Russian city called Kaliningrad)interesting because of its forceful identity change from German to Russian.

    Hi Kami… Your blog is wonderful… I am trying to decide where our Dec/Jan holiday will be. We have been to Austria,Sweden,Germany,Czech Republic,France etc but last time we ended up in Bratislava and Poland (Wroclaw,Krakow,Warsaw and skied in Zakopane)and loved it so would like to explore more Baltic/Balkan areas. We are an Australian family with 3 teenagers. I don’t know whether to go Warsaw-Vilnius-Riga-Sigulda-Parnu-Tallin-Helsinki-St Petersberg (and do cross country skiing,bobsleigh,pirt,ice swimming) or Budapest-Brasov-Sibiu-Zagreb-Ljublana-Lake Bled-Trieste-Venice.(all very pretty!!) We like to get out and about and see things and keep the kids busy and love to eat like a local wherever we go. We handled the cold last time in Poland (Jan 2015) but are worried the Baltics will drive us indoors.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you for your kind words Andrew! It’s a tricky question about Dec/Jan as the weather can be really unpredictable. I’d more suggest southern option as the further north, the day is shorter and it can get colder. But I’d add couple of places to your itinerary, in Croatia (Dubrovnik, Split), Bosnia (Mostar, Sarajevo) or maybe also Kotor in Montenegro. All of them are stunning and so worth a visit!

    Hello Kami, I am a 68 year old from New Zealand and planning a trip some time to eastern/southern Russia and Ukraine. I last travelled Europe and lived/worked in Munich in 1972. I see on your list of planned destinations that you would like to visit New Zealand in October. Please contact me and we can talk avidly about travel and stimulating cultures and maybe I can show you some places. I live in Christchurch and am presently desperately trying to get people to restore our cathedral which was destroyed in an earthquake in 2011 but I fear they will demolish and rebuild. YOUR opinion, if you send it I will have printed in our city newspaper.

      Europe has changed so much since your last visit, I’m sure you will enjoy it! I still don’t know my plans for NZ but if I get to Christchurch I will definitely share my opinion about the cathedral with you!

    Kami, I’m interested to find anything you can tell me about Rzeszow. Possible just to visit, but possibly to spend maybe 90 days in/90 days out for a couple of years. I can’t find as much information as I can about other Polish cities, but thought maybe you make some suggestions. Thank you in advance for any info or advice! John C.

      Hi John! Sadly I can’t help much about Rzeszów as I was there just once and only at the train station. I’ve heard it’s a nice city but unfortunately I can’t vouch for it. But I hope you will find some information around, there must be something! If you need info about other Polish cities I will do my best to help!
