Something we learnt about the summer and the beach in the Balkan’s is that anything goes! People get married, swim, sun-bake, fish and they all do it in the same spot at the same time.
Whilst we had no intentions of doing Ukraine this year (we plan to do it in 2015) whilst visiting the very north of Romania we found ourselves right on their border. What to do?
And in Moldova we also had the opportunity to visit a strange little country called Transnistria, which apart from them and Russia, is not recognised by the United Nations or anyone else.
