Crossing the BorderCrossing the BorderCrossing the Border

Driving in to Liechtenstein
My experience of Liechtenstein was brief although I found time to taste the local brew, eat some corn flakes and enjoy the panoramic view of an entire country. The border with Austria is defined by a mountain range so we entered the country into Vaduz and then drove up the range to be able to see the country leading down into the beautiful Rhine valley.

The 4th smallest country in the world is famous for dentures and its stunning natural beauty. It measures just 25km in length and 6km in width, barely larger than Manhattan, and it might be hard to find on a but it’s filled with quaint villages and spectacular views filled with mountains, lush forests and the Rhine Valley. It is famous for being the world’s largest producer of dentures and those who fancy a slightly different break this year can hire the whole country. Yes... it can be yours to rent for £40,000 a night: You can have accommodation for 150 guests, you will have the run of the land and use of the country's police, plus the new temporary 'owners' of the country will be presented with a symbolic key to the country in

The quality of the lunch was a real step up from what we were having in Switzerland, the beer was also really nice, and the view was breath-taking but to be honest with you the country is not worth coming a long way for, and im pretty sure you could spend £40,000 more wisely.
