Default Hello Gentlemen!

I'm stopping by at Astra's invitation once again. I'll fill you in on some of what's been going on with my Ukrainian family and me during the last couple of years.
To start with the crowning high pint is that 2 years ago my step son and his bride had a son and named him after me. It's a huge honor for me since I'm not blood related to them.
Last winter we managed to finally get then visa's to come to the USA and visit us for the Christmas holidays. We too them to my 'dacha' and went snowmobileing. They loved it! Later on we took them up to Fairbanks in the center of the state and went to see Santa Claus at the Noth Pole. (It's a small subburb of Fairbanks)
Later we went swimming at a hotsprings nearby. It was -40c or f degrees!
The hair on our heads was frozen but we were sweating. It is a weird feeling but wonderful.

I'll be going back to Ukraine again for a month very soon. My wife is already there trying to get her books published. She's written 2 so far and everyone that's read them have loved them. Now we'll see if they'll sell.
Last summer I took some time off to go to Australia for a hunting safari for scrub bulls and water buffalo. I got some! That's the first time that I've ever brought trophys home. Here I hunt for meat and not horns. It was very nice there during the middle of their winter. I'd hate to be there during their summer! +45c is common in the nothern areas.

Here are some more photo's I'll share.

While I was in Sydney AU on the way back I was happy to finally meet one of my online friends from a different Russianwoman/WesternMan forum. They've been happily married for more than 9 years already!

Here are some of our Christmas Celebration in Ukraine for 2011. We had a very good time meeting everyone there.

Hmmm I cannot find the correct pictures of the Christmas feast but I'll keep looking.

Here's our arrival feast! I love crayfish!
The other one is my little bucket of fun, Malinki Masha!

I'll keep looking fo the Christmas feast pictures to show what a dinner in a small village at the daughter in laws Mothers house. They are very warm and caring people.

I've been happily married for almost 8 years so far and have about 12 trips to Ukraine at about 1 month each time so if you have any questions feel free to ask. I've done some travells to Krim but mostly in the central area from Kyiv south.

Spasiba! I'm happy that you've once again 'taken out the trash'!
Are there any questions about the 2 areas of the world that I love? Either Alaska or Ukraine?
I'm still looking for the pictures of our Christmas and New Years Celebrations at the village.

Hi Mike !

You aks about how many aktive member stop by in a week, it is very different from week to week but we know ther are a lot of guest looking in on the Forum to read and find to infomation on Russia,Ukriane and Belarus.

We have on of our members who has open he´s own web site whit info about Belarus but he only gives advises on the forum and we have bought at new dating site we are working on also and we are on Facebook to , so as you se we are doing alot to promote the forum.

As you know people comes and goes on all forums but we will ofcours do some new things to get more membes to participate on the forum.

But ther had bin alot of quistions on the forum about Ukriane and diffrent citys so thats why we would like to have you here to give your knowledge to other members here on RDF.

Many will proberly say this is a Danish site but NO,NO we are happy ther more who wants to participate and give ther knowledge to other member so the more in the English sektion the better. Thats why we createt this English speaking forum but also becours the women who comes to Denmark and do not speak danish also can write here. We are doing all we can to be better all the time .

Best regard to you .
Astra16V

Thank you Astra for the reply!!!

I did manage to find the pictures from our 2011 Holiday in Ukraine! Finally!!

As you can see they spare no expense or effort for the Christmas and New Years holidays. Yes both sets!!
They celebrate both the western Christmas on Dec. 25 as well as the old believers Christmas on Jan.7th.
