Country Collecting: My Day Trip to Liechtenstein

New House Switzerland Liechtenstein 158

Regular readers are all too aware of my somewhat nerdy compulsion to collect countries, and my commitment to visiting every country in the world. What I'm happy to report is that so far, this hobby has been entirely pleasurable, and I have genuinely been able to find a multitude of unexpected discoveries and engaging sights wherever I have been: not least the Vaduz architectural oddity pictured above...

Got Saga published the full account of my jaunt to one of Europe's tiniest and most intriguing nations, Liechtenstein.

I was completely over-excited to discover that you can simply hop on a bus over the border from Switzerland, with no passport control, and in a few minutes you're in an entirely new place, complete with its own castles, mountains, postal museum and cute little capital, Vaduz. The souvenir shops are heaving with tourists purchasing stamps and postcards, and in my case, a tea towel, to ensure that there's an audit trail right back to their inaugural trip to Liechtenstein.

Hi Emma, I'm just off on my Christmas break, so thought I'd take a moment to send you my very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year and to thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me over the last year.

Have a wonderful time.

Kind regards,

Richard
