Just as an idle curiosity: plenty of us have followed Ireland home and away, some for a long time, and I'm just interested to know how many European "countries" everyone has visited.

Now, for clarity, I'm being as generous as it is possible to be here: I'm counting every single UEFA member, along with the Vatican and Monaco.

Flying over somewhere doesn't count and neither does transferring flights there (so Turkey, for those who went to Georgia via Istanbul, doesn't count). You have to leave the airport. Driving or taking a train through does count, provided you at least stopped and got out. Here is the list:

Ireland
Northern Ireland
Scotland
Wales
England
Iceland
Sweden
Norway
Denmark
Finland

Faroe Islands
Portugal
Spain
Gibraltar
Andorra
France
Monaco
Belgium
Luxembourg
Netherlands

Germany
Switzerland
Liechtenstein
Austria
Italy
San Marino
Vatican
Malta
Cyprus
Israel

Russia
Kazakhstan
Armenia
Georgia
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Ukraine
Estonia
Latvia
Lithuania

Moldova
Romania
Bulgaria
Turkey
Hungary
Czech Republic
Slovakia
Poland
Slovenia
Serbia

Croatia
Kosovo
Macedonia
Montenegro
Bosnia-Herzegovina
Albania
Greece

I'm on 28 out of 57. I thought I had been to half of them but not quite.

I thought of them and the Channel Islands too, but decided to leave them out.

I know they are, basically, countries but when dealing with places that are in Europe but aren't in UEFA and aren't recognised as independent countries too, I've left them out. The Isle of Man is basically a protectorate.

It's a crown dependency but is a nation in itself - Channel Islands have a different status. 
Anyways, I'm at 22 with the IOM !

So I take it we are referring to UEFA members rather than actual countries then?
