Travel far And through the State of Ukraine

Ukraine, the country famous for banning Hollywood Steven Seagal from visiting, is opening up to tourism with visa-free travel. Add to that direct flights from the UK and the fact that it is still remarkably good value for money, this is as good a time as any to visit. We suggest you get behind the wheel or a hire car or indeed to hop on a train.

Lviv

Situated in the far west of the country, just 50 miles from the Polish border, Lviv was known as Lemburg when it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1772 to WW1. That’s reflected in its quaint cobbled streets, proliferation of churches and architecture reminiscent of those other Hapsburg cities like Vienna and Budapest. Of course it also has trams, trolley buses and coffee houses. Indeed they say that the first coffee shop in Vienna was opened by an Ukrainian from Lviv in 1686.

It’s a pleasant place to wander round, with street musicians on every corner, and the Market Square in the old town is lined with renaissance houses. The elaborate Lviv Opera House still stages productions of opera and ballet and imposing Cathedrals beckon you inside. My visit coincides with National Embroidered Blouse Day so everyone is sporting one, men and women alike.

Outside the old town, the 18th-century Lychakiv Cemetery has ornate tombs, chapels and shrines plus a special section dedicated to those who are still being killed in the armed struggle on Ukraine’s Eastern borders. Most Ukrainians I speak to believe that it’s Russian mischief making and can’t understand why their former ally is making trouble. Central and Western Ukraine show no signs of the war, so travellers shouldn’t be alarmed.

Carpathian Mountains

The Carpathians form an arc running roughly 1000 miles across Central and Eastern Europe, making them the second-longest mountain range in Europe. They occupy the South West of Ukraine, separating the country from Romania, with the highest peak, Mount Hoverla, reaching over 2000m. Life carries on here much as it’s done for centuries and during the Soviet period was left almost untouched. Even guerrillas fighting their Russian oppressors stayed holed up here for years.

Kolomyia

It’s a three hour drive across the Ukrainian steppes to Kolomyia, famous for the world’s only Pysanka or Easter Egg Museum. Of course it’s built in the shape of a giant egg and houses an impressive collection of intricately decorated specimens from all over the world. Nearby is another museum dedicated to the Hutsuls, the largest ethnic group in the Carpathians, scattered through both Ukraine and Romania. It’s an excellent introduction to their culture with an exhibition of ethnic costumes, arts and crafts.

Yaremche

The landscape begins to change as I climb up to the town of Yaremche at 580m. The wide cornfields give way to forested hills, wooden houses and quaint chapels by the side of the road. The River Prut runs through the centre of town in a series of rapids, and there’s a rather tacky craft market on either side of the ravine. However if you’re in the market for woolly slippers or dodgy fruit wine, this is the place for you.

Bukovel

Another 40 minutes of climbing brings me to Bukovel, the largest Ski resort in Eastern Europe at 900m. It opened in 2000 and has 16 ski lifts with roughly 30 miles of pistes, and more are promised. There’s a boating lake but otherwise there’s not much character here. A few of the ski lifts remain open and, at the top of one of them, there’s a rather terrifying Roller Coaster Zip line which hurls you high through the trees. I prefer a spot of gentle hiking.

Verkhovyna

I head deeper into the Carpathians and the roads worsen, potholes everywhere and rickety bridges to traverse. The railway arrived in the 1880’s, attracting tourists with fresh mountain air, and Vorokhta is an attractive spa town. Further on, just outside Verkhovyna, is Kryvorivnia, a Hutsul village where the movie “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” was shot in 1965. It’s nothing more than a collection of attractive wooden shacks with a restored fortified Hutsul house, known as a Grazhda, filled with traditional artefacts. It’s Sunday and the singing from inside the tiny church drifts across the valley.

Chernivtsi

Leaving the mountains and journeying East, I come to the city of Chernivtski, capital of the region of Bukovina. Also a part of the Hapsburg Empire, it was known as Little Vienna because of its architecture is similar. It’s only 30 miles from Romania and, between the wars was part of that country. The Romanians were responsible for the city’s attractive art deco buildings. Chernivtsi University, a red bricked Moorish fantasy, with a Technicolor tiled roof, was built by a Czech architect in 1882, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Khotyn

An easy day’s excursion from Chernivtsi, is the fairy-tale fortress of Khotyn, on a cliff overlooking the Dniester River. It was built around 1400 by the Moldavians but fell into Turkish hands in 1713. They kept it for another 100 years, until the Russians became the final owners. These days it’s been much restored but it’s still an impressive, with walls 40m high and 6m thick. It’s been the location for many feature films, including the Ukrainian version of Robin Hood.

Kamyanets Podilsky

Nearby is another stunning fortress protecting the bridge connecting the medieval city, built on an island, with the mainland. The 14th century castle sits high above a bend of the Smotrych River, its steep cliffs forming a natural moat. It originally had as many as twelve towers but only a few remain today. It’s still relatively well preserved, however, and is one of the few medieval constructions left in Ukraine.

Kiev

I catch the overnight train to Kiev, the carriages built in former East Germany and full of communist charm. It’s slow but comfortable, although all the windows seem to have been nailed shut.

Ukraine’s capital city has wide leafy boulevards, onion-domed churches and relatively few of those dull Soviet architectural monstrosities. Since Ukraine’s independence many of the building have been restored and repainted as symbols of national pride.

Don’t miss the 1980’s reconstruction of the Golden Gates of Kiev or the 11th-century Orthodox cathedral of St. Sophia. I like the 19th century St. Volodymyr’s cathedral which was a museum of atheism during Soviet times. The big attraction is the Lavra Cave Monastery which is a complex of religious buildings with catacombs below contained mummified bodies of former monks. Nearby is the huge Motherland Monument, known locally as “Brezhnev’s Daughter”, 62m high, dominating the skyline. It’s part of the WW2 museum and you can climb up to the mother’s hand in an interior elevator.

No visit to the city is complete without a walk around the Maidan Nezalezhnosti, the central square of the city and the venue for pro-democracy demonstrations in recent years. It’s a place of tragedy as over 100 people were killed by snipers in February 2014. As a result former President Viktor Yanukovych fled the country. Today, written in large letters on cladding covering building work, “Freedom is Our Religion”, is a slogan signifying that the struggle is still ongoing.

Chernobyl

Although there’s a small museum dedicated to the nuclear disaster in Kiev, a day trip to Chernobyl is the best way to appreciate the scale of the tragedy. It’s perfectly safe, they say, and it’s around a two hour drive from the city. You pass through a 30km checkpoint before entering a 10km exclusion zone where you’re warned not to touch anything. The reactor now has a new shiny metal shell, but the town of Pripyat, once housing 50,000 workers, is slowly being swallowed by the forest. This is a ghoulish tourist attraction but a grim reminder of the dangers of nuclear power.

Find a great and good Travel Agency

The best way to know about top travel agents is to read up what others have to say about them. Quite often, good travel portals and agents will have a review section on their site itself where their customers can comment about their services. You can read the comments section and interact with fellow and previous travelers to understand the potential of your agent. If you can’t find reviews, you can ask the travel agent to put you in touch with their ex-customers.

Ask for Package Deals

A top travel agent will have a lot of connections in the travel industry and they should be able to find you a good deal no matter where you are headed. If they were to take the normal route of  booking tickets at their face value, then why would you even approach them? Ask them if they can get you some discounts on either flights or your hotel stay. You can also ask for free upgrades and check what works best for you.

Ensure They Stay in Touch till the End of the Trip

A good travel agent will ensure that you have the best trip ever. They will stay in touch with you till you come back from the trip so that they can understand how your trip has been. You should ask about this even before you embark on the trip. This is important because you might face travels in a new city or country and that’s when you would need the help of your agent.

Best Travel Experience in my Life

I try to never lose track of how lucky I am that my work as a travel writer introduces me to extraordinary locations, experiences and people. Never has this been more in focus than during a recent hot air balloon ride over the spectacular ancient temples of Bagan. Without a doubt it stands alone as the most incredible, breathtaking travel experience of my life.

There are over 2200 temples and pagodas on the plains of Bagan, most constructed between the 11th and 13th century, the final markers of what was once a thriving kingdom. The plains of Bagan are home to the largest concentration of religious buildings in the world and, in addition to the religious and spiritual significance, the region holds special meaning for archaeologists, historians, seismologists, architects, linguists and artists.

To say that there’s truly nothing like it in the world would be an understatement. Bagan is the place where travel dreams come true.

The sunrise hot air balloon rides are popular so it’s best to book well in advance, but last minute travellers need not despair as standby tickets are often available at a slightly reduced rate 48 hours before departure.

We (Vanessa was travelling with her husband Ryan Wright) were given strict instructions to be ready for pick up at 5.10am and, true to their word, our bus arrived right on time – no small feat considering the state of some roads and the tardy habits of travellers.

It was a special ride. The Canadian built wooden bus that picked us up was brought over in World War II for the purposes of transporting troops. At the end of the war, the cost of shipping all the buses back to Canada was prohibitive and so they were left behind. Today the fleet has been lovingly restored and they must be some of the most unique buses in the world!

After picking up some additional guests, we made our way to the launch field. The pilots introduced themselves and explained the basics of ballooning. They were warm, friendly and funny and set my nerves at ease.

The pilots divided us into groups to balance out the baskets and gave us complimentary baseball hats. These were souvenirs with a practical purpose, as dust can enter the balloon while it is filling and later drop down on the passengers (we never noticed any falling dust, but we were thrilled to have the souvenirs). It was fascinating to watch the balloons being prepared. From the metres upon metres of rippling silk to the roar of the fire, it was an incredibly intricate process to observe.

A few pointers for all the other anti-adventurist folks out there: There is no graceful way to get into a hot-air balloon basket. There are little grooves for your toes as you climb up the side but essentially you just tip in. Happily, there’s no chance of tipping out! The basket went up to my chest and its walls had very sturdy grips.

There’s also no chance of the basket swaying or shaking in the sky. It’s huge, weighs nearly 500 kilograms and is divided into different compartments to distribute the weight. The basket is also very comfortable – inside each little compartment is a padded bench in case you wanted to sit down and the sides and edges are also padded.

Just before our launch pilot Graeme noticed that a passenger was not well and seemed to be suffering from a panic attack. The decision was made that the man should not fly and the situation was handled with discretion. Then, before I even realised what had happened, we were off the ground. The earth just seemed to drop away from the hot air balloon. I honestly felt nothing when the ropes were released and we started to fly into the sky. Graeme reminded us to relax and release our iron grips (but that didn’t apply to me, I was already in my element!) He then proceeded to point out some of the best sights and photo opportunities, starting with the sunrise. Once the sun was up, the temples and pagodas were even more beautiful. Ranging from magnificent large complexes to tiny, crumbling structures, Graeme was keen to point out some of his personal favourites, as well as those buildings experiencing restoration work. Who knew that bamboo scaffolding could be so beautiful?

One of our most unique experiences was flying over a small pond so we could see our reflection in the water.

Graeme is one of the few pilots who does a 360 degree spin for a full panoramic view. It was spectacular.With the end of our flight approaching, Graeme pointed out some final sites to us, including a small village and farm area. He then reminded us of landing procedures and asked us to hold additional sightseeing questions while he concentrated on the landing. I really appreciated that he was so clear and focused on safety!

Our gentle landing went off without a hitch and we were soon back on solid land. A small group of souvenir sellers were on hand to greet us, but none were pushy. Clean, wet facecloths were handed around so we could refresh and remove dust. A circle of chairs was set up for us to enjoy a light breakfast, consisting of sparkling wine (or lemonade), croissants, banana bread, and sliced fruit (banana and papaya).

Hot air balloon rides are an incredible travel experience and I cannot think of a more exhilarating location to enjoy them than in Bagan. It was the most stunning travel experience of my life.

Fall Protection and Safety. Fall protection can be defined as a cover that is governed by the Occupational Health and Safety Act, also known as OHS. Fall protection is a cover that protects employees from injuries that may arise as a result of falls that may occur in a workplace. Fall protection mainly protects employees from falls that may be caused by elevated areas in a workplace, holes that may be on the floor or those that may be on walls. It is a requirement that employers guarantee the safety of all their employees. Main areas that fall protection is practiced is in construction industries, shipyards as well as any other environments that may be deemed dangerous. It is a recommendation by the Occupational Health and Safety Act that fall protection be provided to employees to equipment and machinery that may be deemed dangerous. The fall distance does not matter when employees are working. Employees should be provided with personal protective equipment such as helmets, safety nets, safety harness when working in elevated areas. These are the types of protective equipment that guarantee the safety of employees when in their working environments. There are several ways that employers can provide employee safety in a workplace. There are necessary steps such as covering of manholes that an employer can work on to reduce falls. The practice of covering these man holes involves installation of rail guards and toe-boards that may be placed on open sided platforms, in a runway or any other type of platform.
The 9 Most Unanswered Questions about Professionals
Another requirement for fall protection as per the Occupation Health and Safety Act is that all protective equipment to be provided by employers should not include additional costs on employees. There should also be mezzanine gates that ensure employee safety. As it should be, the mezzanine gates should only be opened when there is a need but remained closed at all times. This ensures that anyone in such a workplace is safe enough.
Study: My Understanding of Professionals
In any working environment, fall protection requires that floors should be kept neat and dry. This is a way that ensures that employees do not trip when they happen to walk on a wet floor. It is a requirement that in case a floor is wet, say during cleaning, there should be caution signs placed which indicate the status of the floor hence the need to be cautious. There is a need that employers provide adequate training to their employees on any job hazards that they may be exposed to. The training should also be conducted in a language understood by all employees. In conclusion, if all the above factors are considered, there is going to be a noticeable decrease of cases where employees have fallen by a large percentage.

Tips for Hiring a Plumber

Hiring a plumber is a decision you need to take seriously.Plumbers deal with some of the most important functionalities of your home, and when you pick the wrong guy, you’re setting the stage for costlier and riskier repairs in the future.

Here are tips to help you find a good plumber:

License

Most states require plumbers to have a license. If this doesn’t apply in your case, at least check if there have been formal complaints filed against the plumber you’re considering.

Insurance

Plumbers must have insurance and sometimes, they also have to be bonded. This protects both you and the plumber in the event of an injury or accident.

Industry Backgrond

Before hiring a plumber, it’s a must to know how long they’ve been a part of the industry. A larger company will likely have seasoned plumbers, but ask anyway. If a plumber or company has been operating for years, that usually means they have a track record of quality work.

Pricing

A professional plumber, after personally inspecting a job, will know exactly what needs to be done and can therefore provide a reliable estimate. Be careful with an estimate that seems too low though.It often means that corners will be cut or that inferior parts will be used.

Warranty

Reputable plumbers always guarantee their work, including every part they used. Most warranties are good for a period of one year. If a plumber will not guarantee his work, look elsewhere.

References

Plumbers should always provide references when asked. Otherwise, you should strike them off your list. Talking to previous customers of the plumber is a great way of finding out the quality of work they do.

Comparisons

There are times when a plumber will feel like the best for you, until you learn he’s twice as expensive as the other equally qualified plumber. That’s why you have to consider at least two or three prospects and compare them before choosing. Don’t worry, with the Internet at your disposal, this won’t be harder than 1-2-3.

You’ve probably heard this before but it’s always worth mentioning anyway – find a plumber before an emergency strikes. Don’t put yourself in a situation where the first plumber you find becomes your only choice. Besides the increased costs of doing a backjob, lingering plumbing problems can be burdensome for everyone. In fact, it can be unhealthy. Any plumbing issue should be fixed as soon as possible and correctly at that. That’s why it’s important to spend some time looking for that perfect plumber for the job.
