Overview

Palaces that emerge from the mountains, beaches with names like "New World," ski resort towns straight out of a Bond film, and clubs where passwords must be whispered to enter - it must be Ukraine. A secret favorite of backpackers for years, Ukraine is finally getting recognized by the outside world for what it is: a can't miss travel destination.

This unique travel guide provides insight into Ukraine's vast history in a - dare we say - fun way. Travelers will be eased into this Eastern European country's cultural norms and introduced to its taboos in order to avoid embarrassing cross-cultural no-no's. With transliterations of all entries, first-hand reviews and recommendations, and a focus on the country's must-see places and off-the-beaten-path gems, this guidebook will act like your international chaperone; making falling in love with Ukraine that much easier.

The author, Ashley Hardaway, has lived and worked in Ukraine for over two years; getting to know the culture overtime through the slow-burn of a budding relationship. This isn't merely a one-off observation - this is true love.

Meet the Author

Ashley Hardaway has never been able to sit still. When she was younger it wasn't uncommon for her parents to turn their backs and suddenly find her up in a tree, or on the roof of a house.

It progressively got worse.

Far away universities. Backpacking trips. Solo vacations. It wasn't any big shock when she announced she was joining the Peace Corps - leaving for Ukraine for 27 months a month after graduating from college.

Afterwards, upon moving back to America, Ashley would continuously find herself saying "In Ukraine this one time..." Friends and family became accustomed to this unstoppable annoyance. Editors that she worked with were perplexed as to how she managed to work a Ukraine analogy into seemingly every article she wrote. It seemed, no matter how hard she tried otherwise, that she could not stop thinking about that country.

To everyone's great delight and/or horror she got a publishing deal for a travel guide to Ukraine. Traveling around the county again and writing about it would either rid her of all her thoughts regarding this country, or provide her with even more stories to torment people with at Christmas time.

So far, all signs point to the latter.

Ashley Hardaway now lives in Washington, DC where she continues to write - about other things as well.
