Wow! I happened upon this site by chance and really like its no fluff no b.s. approach. I have often thought that the tours with other 'agencies' were a total rip off, knowing what the actual costs are to get to eastern Europe. The letter forwarding service seems to be a great way to speed up communication without outrageous translation charges.

I am still on the fence about going down the avenue of finding a Ukrainian wife - I need convincing somehow by someone! And, it's not the usual narrow mindedness that FSU women are inferior in some way because I know that they are not.

I am a dual national of the UK and USA, and interact with hundreds of international students at the University nearby, and I get the feel that Ukrainians are similar to Russians, but they are like Austrians - definitely Germanic but a lot more fun to be around :)

Maybe I'll be in Kiev very soon...

Nick,
The question really does not have to be whether you are ready to look for a Ukrainian wife. The first question to answer is are you curious enough to venture over to Kiev and see what this is all about. I can only tell you that you will likely enjoy your time there, meet some fantastic women, and perhaps meet the one person you are looking for. I had some of the same reservations that you are currently expressing, and am so glad that my curiosity was strong enough to experience this process for myself. The best piece of convincing evidence I can offer to anyone on the fence is this: My future wife and I would never have met if either of us had not been curious enough to participate in this service. You don't necessarily have to be looking to find a wife to buy that plane ticket. Just be open to it and there is a good chance that a wonderful Ukrainian woman will be all the convincing you need. Best of luck.

Gary,

Thanks for the prompt reply and encouragement! I've traveled to a few continents and the Eastern FSU countries have always fascinated me. (I traveled through Bulgaria in the 1970s). I am planning a trip to meet up with my parents who currently live in Fethiye Turkey (long story...) However, I need to find a route to get to Kiev with this Turkish visit in mind, depending on how much time I can swing off of work. Maybe I should call Brett to see what travel plans he suggests.

Hi, Nick,

I think somewhere on the back of your mind you might still have Cold War stereotype. When my husband first came to Kiev (it was in October 1999), he brought with him huge rubber boots as if he would going to venture to marsh land. He never used them.
And yes, Ukrainians are a bit different than Russians. In fact in Western Ukraine they might be offended to be called Russians. Ukrainians are very home and family oriented and they lack that "attitude" that Russians are famous for. By the way, I like your Austrians/Germans comparison. You nailed it.
