Nope. Croatians living overseas and taking long holidays, together with their cars, I guess...

Maybe some Swiss person can answer this question.

I was going through France the other day and ended up in Mulhouse aiming north through Germany. So with my empty tank I headed for Basel to fill her up (a lot cheaper in Switzerland). I went through St Louis and had prepared my passport but the boarder checkpoint was empty. No one there at all.

I always thought since Switzerland is outside both the EU and the Schengen customs area that everyone entering (or leaving) was required to show a passport. Is this not the case? It was on a weekday night at about 8 pm.

I saw Hawaii and Guam registered cars in Vancouver once.

Wonder how they got there.

Usually there's control on the Swiss border (except with Liechtenstein), but not at some border crossings, like this one. I don't know why not at such an important border crossing. However, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are soon to be in the Schengen area.

Last year, when crossing the Swiss border at Mustair, there was a guy inside the customs booth. He didn't pay any attention whatsoever (probably just playing at the computer). Eventually he saw our car waiting and just waved us through from inside. Not even passport stamping, nothing.

The Swiss already act as if they're in Schengen - which is a very good thing. I like their mentality.

The good of E.U. is that its borders are free open to anyone without checks

The borders of EU are surely not open. Only the borders WITHIN EU are open

Border between France and... the mighty Principality of Monaco. Don't forget your passport.

He's kidding, of course. There's no control on the border between France and Monaco. But, I had no idea Monaco was bilingual! Monégasque language then, if I'm right. Also, I didn't know buses weren't allowed in Monaco. We drove through Monaco by bus; it was 11 years ago though.

Yeah, but anything can be expected from the Slovenes. The Monaco police saw your Slovenian licence plate, so they thought ok, they are Slovenians, it's normal.

Concerning the Monegasque language, Monaco is not really bilingual, it's certainly not like in Brussels. The sign at the entrance of Monaco is like the signs at the entrance of French cities where they have put the names in the local regional languages in recent years (like nearby Nice where they added Nissa). It's nothing more than that. It's just a feel-good cultural sign like those that have sprung up around France in the past 10 years. Sometimes it's even frankly ridiculous, like in Rennes where they added the supposedly Breton name Roazhon despite the fact that Breton was never spoken in the area of Rennes, even going back to the early Middle Ages. It's a bit as if they put a Slovenian sign "Benetke" at the entrance of Venice.
