So, Marks just had a little business trip over to Kiev. I must admit when he first told me he had to go to the Ukraine I was a little worried, naturally. But all was fine. Kiev doesn't seem to have any problems at the moment, but I really don't want to get into that side of things, because I really do not have the knowledge about it all! I do though, want to share with you a little about Marks stay.
Mark was only there for the night and stay at the Holiday Inn in the city. Kiev has two airports. He flew into Boryspil International airport and out of Zhuliany International Airport. They say they're only 30 mins away, but allow for traffic as it's closer to an hours drive.
Hubby definitely recommends the Holiday Inn, it was clean and comfortable, friendly staff and in a good location, right in the centre of the city.
As Mark was there for work he didn't really venture out of the hotel. After breakfast (which was very tasty apparently!) the following day, he did nip outside for a quick look and said there's the most beautiful Catholic Church right around the corner.
I must admit it looks stunning and I really want to visit Kiev now. Us Brits don't need a visa for the Ukraine, so it could be a good little trip to accompany hubby on the next time he goes! It's about a five hour flight from the UAE.
