Anybody has been to 7 countries in one day?
Many years ago i boarded a late X channel ferry in Kent,England, arrived in Belgium, and drove to Luxemburg, France, Germany, Switzerland and arrived in Florence, Italy in the afternoon, 1300 kms later. I was delivering a car for a celebrity! And repeated the return journey 2 months later.
I once had breakfast in Paris, lunch in Barcelona and dinner in Marrakesh the same day.
That was cool.
Not sure how many countries i have driven through in a day, but it's probaply 4 at the most.
No more than 3, I think.
you've got me there mate. I once got a train from Budapest to Oostende in Belgium to catch the ferry, so if anoyone with a good knowledge of Eurpoean rail wants to work that out, I'll be glad to know. It seemed to take a lot more than one day but probably wasn't. I remember waking up in the nght to see the Praha signs and went promptly back to sleep. Only time I ever "visited" that apparently lovely city!
Good car, was it? Must have been fun in a Ferrari or whatever.
Yup, basically the same route by coach many years ago. Not difficult when the countries are so small.
I did 7 countries each twice, but in THREE WEEKS :-)
I have done 67 countries in 42 years.
Cachaseiro, i am up to 72, probably in 43 years, but quite a few have done more than us. There is a Russian on VT who is over a 100 if i remember correectly
Try and have a look at Jorges travel Map:
"The Way of the Traveller" - jorgejuansanchez's Profile
He is apprantly one of the 10 most travelled people on the entire planet.
Far less than you, but, as many of you, also many countries visited more than twice, three times........
I touched the same places when i fetch my niece in Switzerland to make holiday in Italy within 24 hours passing from Germany through Netherlands,Belgium Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Austria,Italy. Just go go and go! These places are just within the premises where i live. So no great problem ;-)
you beat me I drove to 3. Started in Paris drove to Brussels and then Luxembourg city.
great ride, happy motoring ::)
Oh to see so much.
Max in a day.. 11.
yes, Kharmelita, but we don't see much when duty calls!. If we had to see the attractions on the way it would take a week or even longer!
Japaneselike or Chineselike style: Europe in 7 days? or whatever....? Picture here, picture there make thousands of pictures in this short time. Then look them thoroughly upon arriving home! (LOL)
No, my ex husband was a hobby fast driver who liked to pass every nearby countries in short time just for fun. Our main goal was to take my niece with us who took her vacation in switzerland to accompany us in our Italy vacation. Her stay in Europe was limited so it was an underpressured time limit for her visa so to say like duty calls! It was not a real long stop-overs for picture taking or for holidays. Just hobby to drive through!
Yes Karmalita, the japanese especially, foto buck palace, foto parliament, foto big ben, foto tower of london. Some of them tour London in a few hours and take fotos from the car, and don't even leave a tip for the driver!!!
he he he...that´s true David!
Then few months later they have the copy of the car but with much better motor system, much better techniques and high tech than the pictured one!(Excuse me I am not really against them they are very industrious people!)
I drove in Germany, Luxemburg, and Belgium, in 36 minutes. That is an average of 12 minutes per country. Got to love autobahn driving when I don't give a flying crap whether I see anything but pavement and other cars during my travels. However, I travel because of what it does to my soul and not to bloody lamely count countries.
Hundwalder,it was just a question of interest, don't get too excited! I travelled extensively in these countries yrs ago!!!
It is really hard to do this on this continent. Although I have done 7 states in 2 days.
David, I apologise for the innapropriate reply. I hate borders, and I will leave it at that. Some of my worst travel experiences involved getting po'd at petty beauracrats patroling international borders.
