After a recent mention on Twitter by a fellow explorer that linked to our Chernobyl pages, we realised that we never told our the full story of our visit. Aside from a few rambling stories in the pub, we have only ever added photos on an interactive map and left it at that. Even when we posted the visit to various forums, we never went into too much detail as to what we remember from our trip. So here goes:
TL;DR: We went to Chernobyl, irradiated ourselves, experienced the Ukraine and some quasi-communism.
Post script: We had written a huge post on our adventure in Chernobyl and the Ukraine, but since we went many other people have done and written about their own similar experiences and we lost motivation for the blog. The final words we typed were “This is long” and gave up. You can see all of our photos here: https://www.thetimechamber.co.uk/beta/home/chernobyl-exclusion-zone
