Round The Black Sea

a trip by Peter Day
From: May 9th 2012
Until: June 16th 2012

This all started as a desire to visit Armenia - and grew like topsy from there. There are some places which are so unexciting in prospect you couldn't really be bothered....but the Caucusus, Kiev - the home of the Russian Orthodox religion, a 'country' not recognised by the UK government and lots of interesting trains.....let's go!
