On Track

2011 – Budapest to Bucharest to Chisinau to Odessa to Sevastopol to Lviv to Kiev.

This trip featured four overnight journeys, my longest ever single train journey, an overnight bus trip from hell, my greatest ever museum, a bus trip to a rogue Communist state and enough comical moments to fill at least a couple of Mr Bean episodes. Here is an abridged account of what we packed in.

Hamish and I jetted into the Hungarian capital on a lovely sunny September day. We had been to Buda & Pest before together in ’92 and had then experienced a number of laughable encounters with romanies, dogs, football touts & transport police.

This time we just had a peaceful few hours to kill before our evening train to Bucharest, which we did with a stroll around the cathedral and parliament areas and an al fresco lunch washed down with dark beers.
