Through a Travel Lens

Sharing Emotional Experience

Thanks for stopping by! We’re Inessa and Natalie, sisters who share a passion for travel. This travel blog is for those of you who, like us, have regular jobs, scheduled vacations, and a desire to make the most out of these precious trips. It’s about finding that perfect balance between exploring all the attractions listed online and avoiding the stress of feeling overwhelmed by time constraints.

We are also Ukrainians, and a significant part of this blog is dedicated to our country. What were once travel guides to Ukraine have, since February 24, 2022, transformed into love letters to our homeland. Like all our countrymen, we echo these words in these challenging times: ‘Life will prevail over death, and light will conquer darkness’.
