      Hi Don,

      Thanks for response, and the advice.  I think I will arrange some assistance for when I arrive.  I must admit, I’m quite excited about visiting Hostiv.  To many people it may be just a small village or town, however, to me it’s the village where my father was born and where his mother and father were born and so on. The connection going back  500 or even 1000 years. Capt James Cook only “discovered” Australia in 1770.  Of course the Australian Aborigines have been here for 40,000+ years.   I know this sounds like a bit of a cliché / strange but I feel connected to this place even through I’ve never been there. My expectations are quite simple - it will be fantastic to just walk along the creek, forest and paths and share some stories. Hopefully someone will be able to understand me when I arrive, and if I’m lucky find some relatives – perhaps an Andrejczuk, Fediuk, Ostryzniuk or Holij.  The Cyrillic script for me is tricky, but I’ll try and develop some basic skills so I can understand “Do not Enter”, “Trespassers Prosecuted”, “no right turn” , “Ladies” and “Gents”, and avoid the associated issues.


      Thanks again

      First I didn't stay with my relatives but would stay in a place called Yaremche http://www.ukraine. com/ivano- frankivsk- oblast/yaremche/
      This is close to Hostiv.  Please note that it is better to get a relative to book your accomodation in Ukraine rather than you booking it yourself.  The reason is that they have a two tier system.  Inexpensive for residence, extremely expensive for visitors.  Hostiv there is a lot to explore and a day won't do it.  Plus you need to talk to people.

      I ended up staying in Lviv and driving into town,  My mother ended up staying with relatives in Hostiv and love every moment of it.

      Oh it better and cheaper to get a driver with a car than to rent a car.  Signage in Ukraine is based on stopping someone on the street and asking them.  Not to reliable.
