Our travels through Europe

Elisabeth searching stones in Scotland Teije in ScotlandWe like to travel by car, to have all the freedom to stay or go on any time. That means also we limit our travels mostly to Europe and we found that even this small part of the world is big enough to keep us travelling for a lifetime and has so many beautiful places to offer. So we invite you to join us on our travels and look at the photographs or read the travelogues. But maybe you like to make the jigsaw puzzles of our holiday photographs!

Countries in Europe

Here a list of all European countries (some of which are partly in Asia but also considered belonging a little bit to Europe). There are more, but the autonomy of some, like Kosovo, is still debated. There are also some autonomous regions which we don't mention here, unless we have been there. As you can see on the list we are almost half way.
In this list are 51 countries (including Gibraltar) of which we have visited 32 together. Some of them (in bold) we have been to for only one or two days and for them we still have to make specific pages.
Albania Andorra Armenia Austria Azerbaijan Belarus Belgium Bosnia and Herzegovina Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Estonia Finland France Georgia Germany Gibraltar Greece Hungary Iceland Ireland Italy Kazakhstan Latvia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macedonia Malta Moldova Monaco Montenegro Netherlands Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russia San Marino Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey Ukraine United Kingdom Vatican City
