The guy on the picture was Ban-ned by his parents.

On another topic: How many countries have you visited during one day? On the 10th of June this year, I managed to squeeze six into my itinerary. Could have been seven but I skipped the Dutch detour. The countries were Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Luxemburg and France. Anyone else who has been to more in one day?

Nope, I've only visited a maximum of 4 countries in one day, but I did it a few times:
- the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France
- Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Germany
- Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands
- the Netherlands, Belgium, France, UK

Not that much, really.

That would be; Germany > France > Luxembourg > Belgium > Netherlands. I started in the Saarbrücken area, drove to Metz, then to Luxembourg, took an alternate route to Liège and then to Zwolle.

That would be a fun theme for a rally. Who visits the most countries within 24h wins.

Chris, next time you visit Slovenia, you could try this route:

NL->D->B->L->F->CH->FL->A->I->SLO

(though to do it in less than 24h you may need something faster than a Berlingo.)

I remember sth about a report of a Polish guy who did 16 countries in 24 hours. Does anyone remember that as well?

Are you sure he was using a car? Not perhaps a private jet?

He was driving, I'm sure about that

He started just after midnight near the PL/CZ border, and continued to SK, A, H, HR, SLO, I, CH, D, F, L, B, NL, but that only makes 14. I don't know what the other two were.

Probably, and maybe also San Marino. AFAIK he drove about 2300 km to achieve this.

This is the start of his journey:

And it is indeed San Marino.

-edit- Thanks Ripley, that's indeed him
