THE GRAND EUROPE TOUR: One Europe, one man, one
Lupo: one great adventure! (and 61.000+ km)
In beginning of 2018, I have visited 83 countries around the world. 69 with a comprising tour around most of the country, seeing everything that had my interest. However, Europe is still quite unknown territory for me. Only Denmark, Greece, Scotland and Wales have been fully explored, while Sweden, England and Germany still have some unexplored corners. Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, Turkey, Russia, Poland, Finland and Norway have only been visited a single day or three.
That leave a lot of virgin Europe to be explored for me. Where the 69 countries I have travelled so fare have been quite comprising explored, this Europe Tour will a bit "Japanese"; only the highlights. And it will be my personal highlights, as I am sure other fellow travellers will appreciate other sights. The main attraction will be the drive, and whatever pops-up along the road.
The plan is to drive and sleep in
my tiny 15 year old VW Lupo, as worked so great on the England-Wales
tour. Some countries are fit for camping, others will be hostels and
hotels. As the summers are a bit short in the northern regions, I might
break the tour up into two - or three. Especially the fare north calls for
mid-summer visit, when it has gotten warmish, but before the mosquitoes
I have made a rough plan with close to 800 sights, and found what I consider
the highlights of the countries. There is a list on the map-pages on these
And what is left?
