Now you ask, which would be the first three smallest?!?!?!
- Vatican City (not sure if they would allow me in there though I am one of God’s creatures)
- Monaco – tick! (as in been there and not about those buggers!)
- San Marino (destination: April)
Number 4 is Liechtenstein – and ta-da!
It’s only just a quick stopover – all 18 hours of it. After all it is a small country.
As we drove into Vaduz, we could see the “schloss” on the hill side –
The timing was perfect as Park Hotel Sonnenberg closes for the season tomorrow when we leave.
View from our room …
Last night we had a black room – tonight we have a white room!
The concierge found us a dog-friendly restaurant for dinner –
And then it was back to the hotel to rest and prepare ourselves for another long train journey tomorrow.
Next morning the clouds came and covered the hills – and it was drizzling.
And as part of the tradition, I leave my mark wherever I go.
Though we’re not allowed in the restaurant, we could sit in the bar area for breakfast.
And I met Blue Lamb – and we exchanged stories.
I told him about our journey and he told me all about the people who come and go at Park Hotel Sonnenhof.
May’s comment: The last time we visited Luxembourg, I thought we were going to Liechtenstein! LOL! When we got there, I was looking for the castle I remembered from the last time I was there (more than thirty years earlier) but none to be found. These small European countries starting with “L” can be confusing. 🙂
Liechtenstein – a principality located in the Rhine valley of the Alps ranges with a surface area of about 62 square miles, and a population estimated at around 38,000. German is the official language and Vaduz is the capital city. (The 10 Smallest Countries in Europe) …
Because of our original plans, we were already heading south of Germany – just thought to stopover in Vaduz for the night before heading over to Salzburg tomorrow. And glad we did because it definitely looked Christmassy here –
