We made a very silly mistake on the rather complicated border between Romania-Moldova-Ukraine, resulting in our car being impounded pending a court case!  It looks as though we are going to be here in excess of 2 weeks.  We donât have our tent, so we canât camp, but we are in a very nice hotel in Izmail & the customs people are being lovely, so no worries.  Weâll just have to be philosophical.  The bonus is that we are learning some Russian (Ukranian).  Shame the weather is rubbish, we hear you are sweltering in the English spring!!
