1. Moldova Short Break
Have dinner with a local family to find out about their lives in a special hidden part of Europe - the breakaway state of Trans-Dniester. Arriving in Tiraspol, the capital, is like being immersed in a Soviet time capsule packed with imposing buildings, war memorials and of course a statue of Lenin. With their own government, postal service and independence day, you'll be captivated by the story of this unique and charming country.
