With small children, it’s good to have travel plans for the neighbourhood, in my case Europe. Returning from our stay in New Zealand in 2003, I set a target to visit all the countries in Europe. Nearly there; only lacking Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Although their European-ness is dubious – or at least contested – I’ll include them. Apart from those three, I’m done.
31 October 2003 (my birthday), I also set these 31 European goals and enjoy ticking them off:
- Sail the Mediterranean
Hike the Alps in Liechtenstein(Sep 2006) See the old walled city of Dubrovnik(Sep 2004)
- Hike the Tatra Mountains – Zakopane/Poprad
Visit Moldova (Chisinau, Orhei Vechul)(Jun 2008) Stay in a private flat in Transdniester(Jun 2008) Visit Macedonia (Skopje)(Apr 2008) Visit Kosovo (Pristina)(Apr 2008) Visit Montenegro (Kotor, Budva, Cetinje)(Oct 2004) Visit Bosnia-Hercegovina (Mostar, Medugorje, Srpska)(Sep/Oct 2004, Aug 2008)
