Cruising Into Yalta: The Stunning Swallow's Nest

31 ratings | 6322 views
http://www.TravelsWithSheila.com Cruising along the Black Sea coast into Yalta on a hot, summer's day was exciting. Even though it was early in the morning, tourists were already jockeying for the best sun tanning positions on rocky beaches, and tall buildings covered the mountains. Over 1 million Russian and Ukrainian vacationeers flood into Yalta each summer to enjoy the sun and sea. Viking passengers would spend two nights on board the Lomonosov docked in Yalta and spend the days touring the city, Livadia and Alupka Palaces. But first, the Swallow's Nest...

In America this Swallow’s Nest would be a KFC.

Thanks for watching and taking your time to comment, Aleksy. Isn't it amazing how anyone can even imagine building something like the swallows nest? Best regards, Sheila

4:40 Is that a ghost in the bushes coming from the right of screen. Maybe it's just a reflection idk. Looks like he's wearing a cowboy hat possibly. OMG.

+Sheila Simkin No I think you missed it. Look again, it's only for a second or two. Either an apparition or a reflection, hard to say. I believe in the paranormal but even I'm a skeptic at first. Concentrate on the darkened section of that large bush on the right of screen just above the wall. He moves from right to left. I think it somehow has to do with the windows on the bus, but very strange still.

I think it was a smudge or shadow on my camera lens. I'm always forgetting to wipe it off. But a ghost would be fun! Thanks for watching and best regards, Sheila

And no there aren't - for now at least. In a way it's sad to see how blue jeans and McDonalds have infiltrated the world. Not necessarily a bad thing but I miss the loss of different cultural dress and food while traveling. Oh well, we can't have it all, can we? Thanks so much for visiting my channel and taking time to post a comment. Regards, Sheila

Don't you wonder whether the cruise lines are still going to include Ukraine? What about the one we took down the Dnieper to Crimea? I am dying of curiousity.

Her internet address is OdessaWalks. YouTube doesn't allow me to finish the url address but you'll find it easily by googling. Your are welcome and again, have a great time.

My only suggestion is to contact Olga at OdessaWalks and ask if she had recommendations or can help us. Good look and have a wonderful time in Ukraine. Best regards, Travels With Sheila

Thanks so much for your very nice comments. I grew up in a small apartment and never thought I would be able to travel and see what my husband and I have done. But I must say, we both have worked all our lives and this is the end result. Hope you are as fortunate. Thanks again for visiting my channel and taking your time to comment. Best wishes, Travels With Sheila
