Heh!

Have you ever used the TripAdvisor Cities I’ve Visited map? You should plot up the places and post it on here.

Number of countries that Lincoln really knows anything about (beyond how easy it is to score weed) = 0. I'm guessing that Simon might score a little higher.

Well obviously I think that list is totally flawed, and what with that, and the fact that according to their rules, you don't have to stay overnight to tick a country, I get 55. Which is significantly more than I could justify to myself.

130. Which isn't so great out of 327.

But last cut was 102 so adding to the count.

I’ve stayed overnight in all the places I think, except for the Vatican (I tried to kip inside St Peters, but they said no, no, no).

Nightmares at the airport! Massive lightning strikes have caused chaos to the re-fuelling building so hundreds of flights are cancelled, no word about our flight but they say minimum 5 hour delay!

Mini Lincoln stuffing his face... still waiting after 3 hours but we've found a quiet spot in the airport... I can see now why some people say that they just can't be bothered with the hassle of air travel.

Overland must be the way to go !

Are you still enjoying the airport? And little Lincoln ain’t so little! Nice looking young man you have there.

Still here Waldos... been in the airport now 8 hours and we won't have an announcement until 11pm !

I feel so sorry for people, I've not witnessed this before...it's utter chaos, so many Europeans trying to get home,probably got work tomorrow, there are no flights for 2 days on Ryan air... where will these poor fcukers stay?.. The French are noticeably the most stressed... they are kicking off in style and the staff are just fed up with it.

I'm tempted to become more "Moe like" and not travel at all.

If you tighten that rule no one has ever visited Liechtenstein.
