Auntie Lockett: Trip to the Principality of Liechtenstein

On our way back from Salzburg, we drove through Liechtenstein - the third country we'd driven through in one day (the other two being Austria and Germany) - and the last stretch of a very long drive from Salzburg to Zurich. (To follow this adventure properly, read Eagle's Nest first, then Salzburg, then this one - I entered them in backwards due to lack of sleep).

Liechtenstein, the 10th smallest country (62 square miles), has a population of just over 33,000 people. The capital is Vaduz (would be a good scrabble word if it wasn't a proper name). They are known for great skiing and stamps.

As we had been in the car for four hours, we decided not to stop... so these pics were taken from the car.
