Also a day-trip to Berlin and transit through Munich, changed planes in Istanbul en route to Cyprus, changed planes in Vienna en route to Montenegro, drove through Irish Republic en route to Loughbrickland, so tally of countries visited for the year is 14 (Albania, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus [both parts], France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Montenegro, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, UK), up from last year's 9.
This is the first calendar year since 2001 that I have not been to the USA.
