HUNGARY AND ROMANIA BY TRAIN: PART ONE
In this episode I’m joined by my good friend Eddie Chapman as we recount a visit to the Great Hungarian Plain.
Eddie is a devoted rambler and part-time rapper who lives in Glasgow, Scotland. He grew up in the Derbyshire town of Chesterfield and developed a love for the landscape through hiking in the nearby Peak District. Eddie now spends his walking time bagging munros in the Scottish Highlands.

This is part one of two episodes covering a trip Eddie and I undertook across Hungary and Romania in 2015. In part one we recount our travels through the Great Hungarian Plain, en route to the Romanian Carpathians.
It’s a light-hearted episode with recollections of unusual experiences, including owl-headed body-builders, fire water and rural sports bars.
We saw some incredible wildlife in one of Europe’s most important landscapes – the Great Hungarian Plain – and would definitely recommend it if you’re into birds. But do listen to what we did wrong if you’re planning a visit!
