Schengen 4th Week-end Solo Trip: Cyprus with Bahrain

Cyprus (Nicosia and Ayia Napa) and Bahrain week-end adventure

Schengen 3rd Week-end Solo Trip: Monaco, Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo


My 1st 2018 Schengen visa week-end only adventure following the Summer Trip with my mother focusing in Spain63rd solo backpacking trip, quest to visit all the countries in the world, total of 81 countries visited so far (total of 38 in Europe) and of course, usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. The idea of maximizing the Spain Embassy-issued Schengen Visa (Aug. 2018) validity got started when I remember that all of the Southern Europe countries which are not part of the European Union can be visited by using a valid Schengen Visa. Last 2015, I visited Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria. I still have 4 consecutive week-ends before my 2018 Schengen Visa validity expires to fulfill my quest on completing the possible visits in European countries.
