Number 10b: Visit Chernobyl // Number 8: Realise Your Childhood Dream

Completed 16-18 October 2016
Chernobyl/Pripyat, Ukraine

Ever since I watched a documentary on Chernobyl as a child, probably a child far too young to watch such a documentary, I’ve wanted to go there. I was fascinated that such a populated city could be evacuated overnight with people never being allowed to return to their homes, fascinated by the invisible enemy known as radiation that could cause such devastation.
