The overnights meme, with graphics

List the places where you spent a night away from home this year, marking places where you spent two or more non-consecutive nights with an asterisk.

*London, England
Munich, Germany
Skopje, Macedonia
Dubrovnik, Croatia
*Belgrade, Serbia
*Barcelona, Spain
Manchester, England
Cluny, France
*Belfast, Northern Ireland
Leiden, Netherlands
Den Bosch, Netherlands

*Loughbrickland, Northern Ireland

*Kidderminster, England
*Dublin, Ireland

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.

NICHOLAS WHYTE, you count plane-changes as countries visited?! And I thought we were friends!

Now, now, they are all countries I've been to before (so don't contribute to my lifetime count) and they don't go into the overnights tally!

Karma has come back to bite me - after I posted this, work sent me to Strasbourg, so my total overnights for this year is ow a record 29. I guess yours will be higher?
