Bordercrossing Finland-Sweden near Pello. Also a border of timezones (in Sweden it is 1 hour earlier than in Finland).

Border crossing between Norway and Finland east of Karasjok. Both sides of the border have roadnumber 92. Again, also a border crossing of a time zone, since it is 1 hour later in Finland than in Norway. The second language on the roadsigns is Sami. (and Norwegian on the white signs for the customs)

Great, so you can post here the border crossing La Jonquera, it should be already dismantled hopefully.

I'm surprised I didn't see a sign noting the time change. (But maybe I missed it.)

It is indeed dismantled since last December.
The track was repaved and the speed limit is 70 km/h on the area where the border used to be.

However, very often there are random checks at La Jonquera toll and Le Boulou toll. But, so far, I have not seen any cues as it was before.

This a photo from local newspaper taken last December when they were finishing the works:

You didn't miss it, there was no sign. I have never seen such signs at European border crossings when also entering a different timezone. Perhaps because travellers 'should know' what the local time is.

Same as on the border crossing at Iruna. But beware, going Bordeaux bound, French customs are ready to waste your time at the 2nd and 3rd tolls...

I'm planning a vacation in Spain, which involves going back through Andorra. I read somewhere that border controls there are enforced, is it true?

Also, is it true that the Envalira Tunnel toll can be paid only by credit card?

Question 1: Yes. French customs are well aware of cheap cigarettes and perfumes amongst other things being purchased in Andorra.

Question 2: I haven't got a clue.

Yes, there are indeed border controls, both with Spain and France, but only outbound. I used that tunnel in 2008, but I pay tolls with credit card anyway, so I can't remember if you can also pay cash.

First of all, its Macedonia, not Makedonia, and the country's international code is MKD. Macedonia uses the Macedonian denar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macedonian_denar, while Bosnia and Herzegovina uses the convertible mark http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosnia_...nvertible_mark. So, get your facts straight before you post something you know nothing about!

That's a council of Europe flag by the way. Every European country is a member (including Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia) except for Belarus.

Only Montenegro uses €uros, as well as Kosovo and Andorra. The three countries have adopted the euro unilaterally (Andorra has used €uros since the introduction in 2002, the other two since they declared independence, Montenegro in 2006 and Kosovo in 2008, although some people say that is still part of Serbia).

Which is the Council of Europe flag? The blue with the stars?

Which, incidentally, gives me an opportunity to post this mess:

Get a headache just thinking about it....

Don't worry, most of these associations don't matter. Only important ones are Eurozone, EU and Schengen (and BTW, why is San Marino put outside Schengen?)
