Wild Camping In The Ukraine

Much like Romania, wild camping in the Ukraine has been no problem whatsoever.  In fact the one time we asked about paid camping the taxi driver looked at us as if we had 10 heads and told us to “just go into the woods and throw your tent down somewhere.” Made cooler by his accent. The one time we had a problem it was our own fault.  The sky opened up and dumped a bucket of rain on us, and so we quickly grabbed a place and set up.  Only to discover the train tracks were one of a major train line, with trains running on average every 15- 20 minutes).  😛

But it made for an awesome picture in the morning,(if not for a good night’s sleep):

    We never hitchhiked. We rode our motorcycles and camped wild. But I can tell you Bulgaria is a fantastic country, and we had no problems camping wild there. (Except for a night where boars visited us. But even that turned out ok!) The video was taken somewhere in the Ukraine. Where exactly I do not remember anymore!

    Good luck with your trip.
