Our travels through Europe

Traveling through Europe

We 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 still have quite a lot to visit.
In this list are 51 countries (including Gibraltar and Vatican City) of which we have visited 34 together. Although we would like to put Scotland as an independent country on the list, we didn't do so, but it has it's owen menu since we have been there so many times.
