Today, I want to tell you about my favourite passport stamp.

May 8, 2016 – the day I set foot in Liechtenstein, the tiny microstate sitting happily between Austria and Switzerland, and of course – the 6th smallest country in the world.

But here’s a secret: to date, I still think it’s one of the most underrated gems in Europe.

Imagine the pristine natural beauty of Switzerland with a dash of small town charm, all wrapped up in a bite-sized, explorable package. There’s a quirky charisma to this little country – allΒ 160 kmΒ² of it, and while just a novelty passport stamp from the tourists’ office, I treasure this one most because of its rarity.

It was over a year ago that I spent a weekend driving through Liechtenstein, throwing myself into everything activity I could, from contemporary art museums and stamp collections to mini golf and bird sanctuaries. You can read more about my Liechtenstein trip here.

For now though, let me win you over with some photos of stunning Liechtenstein… the most beautiful country you’ve (maybe) never heard of πŸ˜‰

Pssst… Let me know in the comments! Have you ever heard or Liechtenstein, or been there yourself? Let me know where else in the area I should visit for my next trip πŸ™‚

What shocked me most though was the cool, contemporary vibe of the country’s capital – Vaduz. Everything was sparkling and spotless. No lie, it might have been one of the cleanest places I’ve ever visited.

Elsewhere in the country though, you’ll find your fair share of stunning landscapes and sights… so many that you might forget to photograph them all πŸ˜‰ Here are a few I did manage to capture though, including Gutenberg Castle and Schaan.

  1. Hi there lovely
    I do follow you on YouTube that`s how I got here. It`s crazy that you were just a bird`s crow away from my home when you visited Liechtenstein. I`m sure you took a bus from Buchs to get you to Vaduz and Schaan, or did you get out from the train in Sargans?
    Next time you are around, let`s have a coffee. Will check you out on Youtube and see when you`re coming back.
