Conclusions

  • I would do the whole tour again - but spend at least a week in each country. Spending only a few hours in a city is ridiculous, almost a discourtesy to the places we visited.
     
  • The white bread we have in England tastes of cardboard.
     
  • Chocolate in England is an insipid paste. (Yes I know we're used to it, but continental chocolate is really good!)
     
  • Being on the move for 19 days is exhausting!
     
  • A basic familiarisation of European history before I went would have been useful.
     
  • You do need a passport to cross each border. (Except Sweden to Denmark where there was no check made.)
     
  • We achieved our aim: to have a pint in each of the 8 new EU accession countries.
