    Euro Trip!

    I'm Europe bound tomorrow and will be on the mainland for a month with no fixed travel plan other than getting as far into Eastern Europe as I can from Amsterdam. Moldova is a possible but movable destination, I've never been and its off the tourist trail location appeals to me. Will be uploading photos as and when. Will only be taking the phone and tablet so uploading pics can be a bit of a mission.

    Forget Moldova ... get to the Ukraine ... specifically Odessa ... if you are chasing tail
    (my friend reliably informs me)

    Cumbersome Visa process though apparently.

    That's what the Romanian coast is for- erm, I friend also tells me.

    The reason for Moldova is to visit Tranistria

    If you are after easy fanny the get over to San Antonio Ibiza in the baleric Islands east of Spain.
    The Greek Islands are a fertile hunting ground also, particularly Faliraki on the island of Rhodes. But be careful taking pictures of planes there

    Enjoy and have a good trip.

    It'll be mostly by rail as I'll be buying a pass in Amsterdam tomorrow. A say mostly because the Bucharest- Chishinau train has become rather unreliable in if it runs apparently. Other option would be to get there via Ukraine, also somewhere I have never been to.

    I went inter railing round Europe for a few months as an 18 year old, great fun just get to a train station then decide where to go. Thought you could ride a motorbike, hire a big bike and drive it where you like I thought would be preferable to a train.

    Moldova and Transdinstria so have a plan B when left in your pants tied to a milkmaid....
    At least they have nice wide trains , the Ukrainian side of the Delta has great birdlife (feathered variety) spend all yer Hrivna before leaving , they're toilet paper elswhere.

    If you have a kindle, a v funny book or you may find at Waterstones in the main drahg kalverstraat or my mates 2nd hand shop opp Vergulde Gaper in the Jordaan on the west facing bank of Prinsengraacht
