Don't believe any study that says being a 'newspaper reporter' is the worst job you can ever get. The thing is that journalism is damn fun (most of the time) – especially in Ukraine.

What are your plans for summer?

Olena Tkachuk,
ticket booking manager

“I’m going to visit Crimea and stay at Sudak for a week. It’s a chance to be closer to nature and relax from work and at last I can swim a lot. I like to travel abroad. I want to visit Portugal very much because my favorite football player is Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Maksym Rohma­nyiko,

“Now I’m studying but in a month I’ll go on a vacation. My top three plans for this summer are as follows: I want to go far away where there are fewer people. Maybe it will be good to relax near the sea. And, I want to get tickets to some jazz concert.”

Olga Melnychuk,

“This summer, the most important for me is to enter the university. After that I’m planning to stay at home. Maybe I'll go to the seaside with my friends and relax on a beach.”

Yaroslav Teslenko,

“I have not thought about it yet. I have lot of stuff to do in the summer. I am working right now. Also, I’m planning to graduate from the university and to get a driver's license. My dream is to visit Spain and to see my favorite football club, Barcelona, play in their home country. But I am afraid that I won't accomplish it this summer.”

Olena Ephimchuk,

“I have no plans for summer. For me, it is no different than autumn or winter. Life just goes on. In reality, I take many small trips each day. I walk my dogs each day around the city parks.”
