Well, that's one goal. Anyway, there's hardly any place on the face of this planet that I wouldn't like to visit, Workuta in the winter is one of them.

Surely there is someone to top my 18?  Wink/being sarcastic

Here's a list of European countries (all of Europe, not just EU). Kazakhstan's one of them:

Albania
Andorra
Armenia
Austria
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Belgium
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
Czechia
Denmark (incl the Faeroe Islands)
Estonia
Finland
France
Georgia
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Ireland
Italy
Kazakhstan
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
FYR Macedonia
Malta
Moldova
the Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal (incl the Azores and Madeira)
Romania
Russia
San Marino
Serbia & Montenegro
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain (incl the Canaries)
Sweden
Switzerland
Turkey
the Ukraine
the United Kingdom (incl the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Gibraltar)
Vatican City

Must add though, that I've often seen Cyprus listed as Asian, Israel listed as European and Turkey as both. Somehow Russia's always European, though most of it lies in Asia.

From the Conseil de l'Europe.

Some of the "questionable" inclusions shouldn't be all that surprising. Israel's in Asia, but their teams play in the UEFA, as do Turkey's. Cyprus is now a full member of the European Union, though often classified as Asian. Kazakhstan play within UEFA as well.

Here is my map (I included all European countries I have been, not only the EU countries):



While looking at my map, I just noticed that I have never been to a country of the former "Eastern-Bloc" (incl. the former GDR), time to visit Prague to check out the famous Czech beers  Big thumbs up.

Ooooohhhh, I've only been to 6  Sad

I think the EU should have a program where as every year as a child in school there should be a visit to another EU country. See your neighbours and learning young is the best way.

Once I was able to say that I had been to all EU countries except one (Finland). But this is no longer true after this year's expansion; of the new countries I have only been to Hungary and Slovenia. Though to be honest, when I was there Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia , and I did not step down from a train while there...
So now I am in -9 (16 out of 25)..
