I had spent months this spring planning and researching our trip to Ukraine.  But I kept looking for something that would be a WOW factor for my two grandchildren who were accompanying me.  What luck to find that Green Ukraine offered horse riding and lodging with a Hutsul family.  Perfect!  I immediately emailed the owner, Andryi,  and asked if he could accommodate us on the one night we had free while in the Karpaty.  He answered in only a few hours and had a plan.  Then I wanted to include fishing a long with the horse ride and again he quickly adapted our 2 days to include river fishing.  We all LOVED staying at the farm home…………the kind hosts, delicious meals, and of course the special “Hamam” in the evening.  But the cherry on the top was the following morning Andryi somehow organized an old Soviet dump truck.  The kids jumped in the open back and we rumbled up the mountain to the “dairy” at the top.
Thank you Andryi .
