No, the Julian Alps are on the border with Italy, you can see the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karawank Mountains, but you can also see the border (yellow) and pieces of Austria behind it.

Trip by shuttle bus from San Ysidro/USA to Downtown Tijuana/MEX during my last USA trip in May 2008:


The border is clearly visible, a Motel 6 in front


Buying tickets for Mexico and return


Inside the bus


Heading to the border check-point




Welcome to Mexico

It's quite small, isn't it?
I can see Holland right now, but I'm not in it

Switzerland (as well as Liechtenstein, I suppose) will enter the Schengen Area on 12th December 2008 on land border crossings.

No, that's why Liechtenstein will most probably enter Schengen as well.

Well, it's the other way round more likely

Will it be fall 2008 or 2009?

So Liechtenstein and Switzerland are kind of "Benelux", so the "Switzerstein" or "Liechtenland"?

By the way, is it true that you can hire Liechtenstein for parties?
