A British vlogger who goes under the name ‘Bald and Bankrupt’ on YouTube came to Belarus for absolutely crazy and authentic experiences.
Instead of posh hotels the traveler stays in low-cost hotels, eats at local canteens and interacts with ordinary people in Belarus’ province.
He deliberately evades the high-end malls, the multiplexes, the cafeterias that sell western snacks and offer free WiFi, he is more into a wild and exotic pastime.
What is his recipe for a no humdrum trip to Belarus that will stay with you forever?
Look for the Soviet past outside of Minsk
Book a room at the cheapest no-name hotel
Meet unfriendly youngsters and eat weird food
Go for lunch with a girl and be ready to pay for it
Get lost in the deepest village
Meet tough babushkas
Explore Belarus Chernobyl zone
Hang out with locals
Go to bar, travel by train, look for a bear and sing with locals
And most important, be open to new, stay positive and be ready to come back!
