Only downside was the airline has lost my baggage on the return leg. I am mighty p****d off.

Don't fret, a few years back 4 out of 5 trips to Ukraine they lost my luggage, by the end I was an expert at form filling and knowing what to do, it always turned up eventually, having said that, it was sometimes after I had bought a new wardrobe  :chuckle:

Great news and glad you had a good time in Kyiv.

Cheers Mendy. It was really nice to experience such hospitality and being made to feel so welcome.

I met my girlfriend in Kiev the last week of December.  We attended The Nutcracker at the Kiev Opera House the day after you did (12/31).  It was terrific.

The airline lost my luggage on the way there and again on the way back.  Luckily I got it back in a day or two each time, but not before I had to buy some clothes in Kiev.  It's amazing how much clothing costs there.
