That's 28, the same as last year's record high, in 14 different countries.

However I have also changed planes in Vienna, Istanbul, Warsaw, Rome, Ljubljana, Stockholm and Copenhagen, and driven through Luxembourg, so my total number of countries visited for the year is a record 22 (last year was 21).

Edited to add: Of course, the day after I posted this, I was sent to Strasbourg for three days and two nights. So my total for 2016 was 29, making 2016 a record year both for different overnight stays and for countries visited.

Previous years: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015

That's all the places where I have checked in with Swarm so far in 2016. Most of my travel has been in the northwestern corner of Europe.
