I've been checked in trains crossing Schengen borders only a few times. Once they only wanted to see my ID, but when they saw that I was Dutch they checked the whole compartment and all my luggage, to make sure that I didn't have any drugs with me.

I'm spending a couple of weeks in Lithuania and I have noticed an excessive amount of fags on the road.

There is an ongoing scandal of paedophiles involved into one high-profile criminal case in Lithuania... it's not surprising, though, because, it seems, they don't even try to hide their identities and simply identify as "fag" on their numberplates

All pictures taken by me in Vilnius during the last few days

Turbo fag

Only a fag could drive such an old and rusty car

What a fag one must be to drive such a crappy Fiat?

No doubt it's a fag

You might think it's an ordinary Toyota Corolla but beware because it may be a FAG!

Now this must be a really high profile fag... this car costs over 100 000 Euros!

THE END

You said that they are not in the Schengen Agreement, but they are. Norway and Iceland are de facto members of the Agreement since 2001, and Switzerland since 2008.

What about Liechtenstein? I was facing very tough border control on the Swiss-Liechtenstein and Liechtenstein-Austrian borders. They even built some ancient gates (without guards though) at one "checkpoint".

Are you sure? Cause Switzerland and Liechtenstein form a customs union and two years ago, when I was traveling from Austria to Liechtenstein/Switzerland, it was a single checkpoint in Feldkirch, at the Austria-Liechtenstein border (with Swiss border officers controling cars), and no border control between Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
Anyway, there is no border control now. Technically, Switzerland being in Schengen it means Liechtenstein is in Schengen too.

I was driving home today and took a detour because a train was passing by and I didn't feel like waiting. Well I always forget that I hate this detour and this is the reason.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...01717&t=h&z=20

SO annoying. What is the point of installing those if the stop signs are still up?! I thought the point of a roundabout was to eliminate stop signs. I thought at first that it was just temporary and they would eventually take the stop signs down, but they have been up for at least a year. And more and more of these mini roundabouts are popping up. I love roundabouts and like that they are actually doing this but by not removing the stop signs they are defeating the purpose!

E4 is a better road, so E12 is the next best guess

The site Flightradar24.com is a great site. Any idea if anything similar exists for trains? :-) Also, I wonder why the planes for central/southern France and most of Spain aren't coming up?

Trains ? I think that might be asking to much , you can buy a Train Radio and listen in on the Conversations as long as your near the lines.

Yeah, I thought it might be a long shot. Just thought I'd ask anyway. :-)

You can find some TrainRadar-esque sites for some local networks.
For example here you can track Copenhagen's S-Tog commuter trains.
(Yes, it is boring. But since you asked... )
