TRAVEL PLANS FOR 2014 OR 16 DOWN AND 51 TO GO

Europe Map

And so we begin 2014. I had the most delicious breakfast this morning at a hotel in Mannheim. I really must start making myself proper breakfasts.

I have just updated my ‘Where I’ve Been’ page, so that it now corresponds with Traveler’s Century Club list, rather than the UN list. Which brings my number of countries visited to 25 – hooray!  But, that means I have only ten countries to see in 17 months, which isn’t anywhere near challenging enough… so I am upping the stakes.

The TCC has 67 countries in its Europe and The Med list, so far I’ve been to 16 of them.  That leaves 51 to go, 51 countries that I want to see before I turn 35 in May 2015. That is definitely much more challenging.

Here is the full list… I’ve crossed through those that I have already visited…

  • Aland Islands (Mariehamn)
  • Albania
  • Andorra
  • Austria
  • Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Minorca)

I am happy to admit, that I had to google a couple of these, plus I think I’ll leave Russia for the moment.

In the next six weeks, I’ll be travelling to Poland and Hungary, I’m crossing my fingers for Denmark as well, but that will hopefully be confirmed tomorrow.
