Our itinerary centered around a tour of the homeland of our forefathers in what was part of Russia at the time. The villages lie amid fertile grain-growing plains about 400 kilometers east of the Polish border:

  • Brody, formerly the border between Poland and Russia
  • Shepetivka
  • Nova Labun (Lubin)
  • Bilohorodka

We ended the trip with four days in the delightful town of Lviv (Lvov) and a quick visit to Odessa.
