In June 2019, Suzanne, Sophie, and I traveled through Ireland, England, France and the Ukraine. This travelogue is a record of what we saw and did in our travels.
The trip was a combination of vacation and family history. In England, we vacationed with Suzanne's father Ralph and his partner Eliane; Ralph showed us the place in Guildford where he had been evacuated as a child in WWII, and where he grew up. In the Ukraine, I traveled through the Podolia region to Balta, where grandfather was born.
Originally I wrote the travelogue as a series of emails, starting with the day we left England. I've kept the basic structure, so picture reading each page as receiving the next email in the sequence.
