If you don't mind me asking, why didn't you go to Germany? Or Portugal?
+1
Level 78
Aug 12, 2016
I've changed my plans and now the route includes a pass through Germany. Portugal is still off the list.

On this trip I will end up visiting almost every country in Europe at least briefly except for (current plans) Luxembourg, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Malta, and Portugal. Finland and Ireland are maybes.
It's a combination of weighing interest in the country with more practical considerations like weather, time, visas and so on.
Germany I've visited before in 2004. It's not really at the top of the list of places in Europe that appeal to me. It's expensive. It's cold in the winter. And it sits right in the middle of the Schengen Area which is inconvenient for me as I have to go in and out of Schengen every 3 months to stay legal.
Portugal is off to one corner of Iberia and I'm really much more interested in visiting Morocco than Portugal. I could take a detour through Portugal but unless I skip the Spanish Riviera, it would be way out of my way.

I always thought it was interesting how whenever there is a comment that's wrong in some way shape or form you always seem to find it and correct it. I just wanted to ask, do you actually looked for the comments or just play a lot of quizzes? When the Quizmaster knows who you are you know you're well known. Either way definitely one of my favorite quizzers on this site.

May 21, 2014
There are 3 main things contributing to the indirectness. 1) I want to visit as many places as possible on the way and I would like to spend more than a few days each of those places. 2) the Schengen Zone means I have to find places on the edge of Europe to stay for 3 months out of every 6, thus the zig-zagging into and out of the Balkans and UK. 3) most of Europe is freaking cold. During the winter months I'll have to retreat as far south as possible because my car doesn't work in snow.

Level 78
Aug 1, 2014
Glad you enjoyed the quiz! I'm not sure about Chur... I just read about it now for the first time. It may be that it was not considered a proper city. I don't know why but it seems like many of these cities on the oldest cities quiz I've done were places that were settled first by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans or later European empires; I suppose the settlements of locals before then didn't count? Or perhaps at some point the line of continual habitation was broken. However, settlement of Zurich might have been as early as 6400 years ago, and the claim of oldest continually inhabited city is given to it for its Roman founding in 15 AD.

It says in the quiz description, if everything goes according to plan I'll be doing this until Spring 2018. I have never planned a trip quite this ambitious before, so, I'm not sure if I'll actually make it or not. I could get bored or tired or sick, or my car could die on me, or I could run out of money - I've done budgets for long trips before but never ones so long that I had to factor in inflation and currency trends. :) So... we'll see.

I'm not planning on going to eastern Ukraine. Odessa and Kyiv I believe are still fine. Though, if need be, that portion of the quiz would be easy enough to modify. I could just drive directly north from Romania after a pit-stop in Moldova, spend an extra month each in Belarus and Russia. That's assuming Russia doesn't stop issuing visas to Americans out of spite by then.

This question or clue needs to be modified. It doesn't state what you're looking for: "Take the ferry south across the strait then follow the coast to the southwest 400 km." Am I looking for a country, city, town, rock, etc.

You have a point and I noticed this minor discrepancy before... but... almost every other answer is a city. There are 3 answers that are countries, and 1 that is an island chain, and 48 cities. I thought.... so close to the end of the quiz... people would recognize the pattern and be able to get it.

In a sequel, of sorts, to this quiz... which I am working on presently and will finish by 2018 (when I complete this trip in real life), I intend to rectify this and put in more names of museums, cathedrals, sites of interest and so on. This version represents more of a rough outline.

I had a great time in Israel. Fascinating place. I spent a couple weeks near the old city of Jerusalem, by the old train station near Emek Refaim. Another couple weeks in Tel Aviv.

Out of all the countries you're visiting, why did you leave Germany out?
+1
Level 78
Nov 3, 2015
1. I don't find Germany particularly interesting.
2. I was there before, in 2004.
3. the most important reason.. the Schengen Area means that I can only stay in the part of Europe covered by this zone for 3 months out of any given 6 months. My car means that I cannot be anywhere where it snows or I will get stuck. Most of the Schengen Area countries are in western, central, and northern Europe. Combine these factors together, and it becomes difficult to include certain countries on the route, such as Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. If I could have fit in more Scandinavian countries I definitely would have it was just difficult given these constraints. The path I take is a winding one because I need to move in and out of Schengen every 3 months to stay legal and I have to also stay to the south by the sea during the winter months or I get snowed on.

Level 78
Apr 24, 2016
btw I think I will pass through Germany now. And Sweden and Norway and Denmark. I think I found a way to squeeze them all in.
+2
Level 78
Aug 20, 2016
and now that I'm in Sweden, I would say if there was any good reason to leave these countries out it would be that they are CRAZY expensive. Wth.

In Odessa I had a gorgeous high-rise apartment on the 19th floor overlooking the Black Sea, with floor to ceiling windows, with a kitchen, free underground parking, basically right on the beach, for $27/day.
Here in Stockholm a bed in a hostel dorm room is $50/night. Insanity. And Swedish girls aren't nearly as hot as you've heard. Gotta get out of here.

What a fascinating adventure! I do not understand the area you must pass through to remain legal though? What country do you call home? Do you begin to miss it at times? Have you experienced waking up and not having a vague idea where you are yet?
+1
Level 78
Dec 5, 2016
The biggest hurdle about remaining legal is the Schegen Area because it encompasses so many different countries and I'm only legally allowed to stay there 90 out of any 180 calendar days. Though I do have two valid passports so I could cheat and stay there all the time if I wanted to.

As indicated in my profile, I am homeless.

When you have no home, there is nothing to miss about it. :) But there are things I miss about many different places I've been before. I miss friends and family all over the place but mostly in Virginia. I miss wonderful jambalaya pasta, basil duck, Todai sushi, etc etc from Virginia; $1 pho from Saigon, $4 portions of kalbi from Seoul; the excellent smoked mutabel and fantastic fried chicken I used to get down the street from my place in Riyadh; the amazing gyros from Cyprus; and so on. I miss the ass hoses of Saudi Arabia, as well as the warm weather in November. I miss the women in the Philippines and Thailand and Russia.

Kal, if you don't mind me asking, what do you do? I'm fascinated with all these places you've been, and it makes me wonder about your background. Are you a skilled tradesman? Do you have an inheritance or do you rely on the generosity of people in each country you visit?
+1
Level 78
Apr 7, 2017
Unfortunately no inheritance. I have met others on this journey who have been traveling about for years with little or no cash at all- they hitchhike, volunteer, busk, beg, steal, camp, sleep on the street, dumpster dive, food save, couchsurf, etc to get by. But that's not me. I like CouchSurfing but more to meet people. I travel cheaply but there are some comforts and conveniences I'm not willing to give up. I made most of my money in Saudi Arabia where I worked at a couple different universities for about six years. They were well paid positions, taxes in Saudi are zero, and cost of living there is very low.

the tiny countries I've been to that you might have missed include Vatican City, San Marino, Singapore, Bahrain (not recognized on JetPunk: Palestine, Transnistria, Adjara, Northern Cyprus, Disney World).

I've been to three of those. Not much to see in Liechtenstein - Vaduz is tiny, like a village in Switzerland. Luxembourg is pretty and pleasant and prosperous but as dull as you'd imagine. I'm surprised you haven't been to Monaco (I'm surprised you haven't lived there, in fact). A sunny place for shady people as they say, but spectacular in its way, and there's fun to be found.

But your trip seems very fun. Travelling is one of my favorite things to do:)

Wow, I absolutely want to go on a trip like that! I wouldn't have to see Vienna, Zurich, Prague or Paris again (I live in western Austria about 2 hours away from Salzburg) but the other places like Petra or Odessa are an absolute "must" for me! But you are also going to non-touristy destinations like Georgia or Azerbaijan or Armenia! That sounds very interesting to me! How awesome is that! I will be going on a tour through Scandinavia soon! I really recommend it, I've been to Norway and Iceland before already!

Georgia is great and pretty popular with tourists now, though of course they don't get as many as most countries in Western or Central Europe. I never actually made it to Azerbaijan; I decided that the visa was too expensive just for a brief detour, so I spent more time in Georgia and Armenia instead. And I did go through Scandinavia: every Scandinavian and Nordic country except for Iceland, actually. I've been meaning to do a follow-up to this quiz about my actual trip rather than just the plan for it, but I haven't finished that one yet.

If you get the chance, you should go to Mount Athos in Greece. I've been there 3 times, and it is really a magical place. (Well, if you don't mind being woken up be the monks at 4am).

I actually considered it, but decided not to.
