Square in Warsaw Old Town

European squares...
...there's just something about them that makes me happy.

I'm glad you clarified that 'Genius' wasn't a self-given title! :D

I love the Man on seat 61 too! I like flying less and less everyday, so this website makes me dream. It's nice that you guys are doing overland in Europe... oh! and I love Amsterdam too, it's so beautiful

I can't remember what this is

Fun beer and sobering history
Great visit and I love your photos of the street art! The statue here is K├Ąthe Kollwitz's sculpture, "Mother with her Dead Son" in the Neue Wache, a memorial to the victims of war and tyranny. Kollwitz is one of my favorite artists and often portrayed the suffering of working people and of war. How wonderful that your walking tour took you there!

A fan are you?
Didn't have you guys down as David Hasselhoff fans! The currywurst and beer tour sounds brilliant, I know a certain mammoth who might enjoy that.

Berlin microbrewery

Berlin
We loved our week in Berlin. What a great city. So much beer so little time.

Cliche #2 cheese

Cliches...
I'm totally fine with cliches when they involve delicious cheese (or wine or bread)! :)

I also love the Man in Seat 61...
having used his website to plan my rail journey across China and Uzbekistan in 2013.

Jolly good yarn
Top blog guys, gave me a few giggles this morning. Totally agree with hostel observation, They typically only seem to be great for solo travellers, I don't miss drifting of to sleep to the melodic sounds of my dorm mates farts, coughs and snores. Those clogs did look a couple of sizes to big for you Kate. Looking forward to the next instalment

Congrats
First of all congratulations on your promotion. I have been lucky enough to visit Amsterdam twice and enjoyed it both times. Sounds like some great tours you were on and good thinking using the points to pay for the room. Looking forward to the next instalment.

The Story at Last
Vietnam, China, Ukraine, then what? At last the story of your move to Odessa, Ukraine and what happened next is being told. I will await each instalment as it unfolds. Best wishes from one who knows why you guys are called the amazing name of Rat on the Road!

Trip to Odessa
Ah Dave, this is the journey back to Odessa after our summer holidays! What happens next has not happened yet......

Amsterdam
We loved exploring this city. All the fabulous museums, food and people. Have fun.

Amsterdam, one of our favourites
We have very fond memories of Amsterdam from our visits there when we lived in the UK and your blog brought back some happy memories of sipping coffees (only coffee!) next to the canals. You are right that hostels and ferries are sometimes false economies or just not cheaper than the alternative hotels and flights. We noticed the same as you with English seemingly being the predominant language and would be interested, like you, to know how this started. We particularly like the clogs Kate is wearing...bet you couldn't get them in your hand luggage to take back to Odessa ;)

Thank you for blogging about Ukraine
I am also going to Ukraine often and it's nice to see some people to write that life there is going on as normal and except in the East, it's not war at all in comparison with what is said in the news in Europe! Enjoy Odessa ;) Natacha

There is always a devils something
In there last month or so we have encountered devils creeks, thumbs, elbows, and peaks. So I wouldn't worry about not knowing the backstory. Why would someone have snakes in there bag, I hate snakes. Thanks for the blog shout out, but the Hulk is no monster, well unless you make him mad

Snakes
Snakes are ok. My bro has some. Spiders are another matter but he didn't have any in the bag,

A really good read
Really enjoyed this blog, a country yet to come under Woolly's sights but one that we need to go to.

Safety in Odessa
I visited Odessa in September last year, and it holds many fond memories - a pretty cosmopolitan city with great food! Entirely agree on the perception of a destination given by the media being different from the reality on the ground. I always tell others to rely on reports from people living or travelling in a place and not to rely on the media for such information. Of course, that is easy to say, but more difficult for such advice to be believed! I would return to Odessa or Kiev (where I also visited last year) without any hesitation at present, one just needs to use common sense wherever they are in the world.

Beautiful!
It's nice to see stories coming out of Ukraine that isn't all horror and sadness, very uplifting. Lets hope the situation in East Ukraine is solved swiftly.
6th July 2014
....Is this how you pictured Ukraine?

Time in the sun
Great to hear you both are safe and sound and enjoying life in Odessa. The newspapers clearly imply concern is warranted in Ukraine so this blog is welcome. Is there no place free of mosquitoes? Maybe not!
