Around The Black Sea: Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria

We toured around The Black Sea through those former Eastern Bloc countries we hadn't visited yet. One of the motivators for this trip was that Belarus had given up its outrageous visa fee of around 60 euro per person. Now the only nuisance left is that in order to get an entry stamp, you have to fly in and out of the country and pay for a so-called "medical insurance" at the border. While the insurance costs only a couple of euros, it still feels stupid to pay for nothing.
